Any ideas / suggestions or tips are welcome.

quite frankly, Fortaleza is not really a day cruise ship ideal stop.

most people use Fortaleza as a base to go to nearby attractions, which are out of town (beaches mostly), but due to time constraints on a cruise stop, I am not sure if these are feasible in your case (you dont say how many hours you actually have on shore). maybe if you take the (usually pricier) excursions sold by cruise lines, which would guarantee that they fit with the ship schedule.

if you plan to do it on your own, maybe the following places could be of interest; as they are not terribly far from the Mucuripe harbor point (where I assume ship docks);;;; taxis will be needed anyway. both for distance and safety reasons.

if you want the "iconic" pic in Fortaleza, go to Iracema beach where you will find the statue representing Iracema, a character in famous local novel:

Hi Rokatoo

Thank You for the reply :)

If I know how long we have in port, I would say, but the cruse line only gives us a guide times which can (and does change), its only once we get on the ship that we know how long we will have in any ports.
