It had to happen: "Carnaval goes Green — preserving the Environment and our Planet." So, dress up in something loud and fabulous and hit The 8th Annual Brazilian Carnival 2008 aboard the Queen Mary, which hasn't seen this many sequins and feathers since its heyday. The entertainment is wild and fun and includes Dandara, "Brazil's Tina Turner," along with Pra Gandaia Band performing classic sambas, axe, marchinhas and frevo, plus Maisa Duke, the Samba Queen from San Francisco, and scads of scantily clad samba dancers. Sat., Feb. 2, 8 p.m.-2 a.m., 2008
