If couples seek a festive time both on and off board, then this itinerary is a true score.

In addition to the already exciting itinerary that our Desire Rio de Janeiro couples-only, conceptual cruise has to offer, we will be staying true to what we do by bringing our world-renowned cast and crew.

All this and much more is in store providing couples fun like you’ve never experienced before. 

The Desire Rio de Janeiro Cruise is a voyage where passengers will be treated to modern luxury at sea. The Azamara Pursuit ship boasts designated areas, such as the pool and sundecks, where you can take it all off and remember what it feels like to be alive. And inside, there is our intimate couples’ playroom, which is a spectacular space for those seeking to experience something new. What you choose to do on board is up to you.

Throughout your voyage you will be wined and dined in style as our program makes sailing worthwhile. The Premium beverage package and five delicious dining facilities, plus room service, are included for a stress-free voyage, in addition to luxurious staterooms and any world-class amenities couples could possibly want or need.
