Azamara Quest
Sailing: 18 November 2023

Discover the Mighty Amazon River

Set off on an unforgettable 22-night exploration of the Amazon River. From the Barbadian capital city of Bridgetown, take two days of sailing to discover all your boutique hotel at sea offers before arriving at the Amazon River.

Sail along the mighty Amazon River, taking in the lush paradise of the rainforest around the largest river (by volume) in the world. Our first port deep in the Amazon is the small riverside city of Santarém, nestled where the sandy brown waters of the Amazon River meet—but don’t mix—with the emerald blue waters of the Tapajós River. Next, arrive in the village of Boca Da Valeria to get a sense of the way of local life in this small fishing settlement.

Then, it’s an overnight stay in Manaus, the largest city in the Amazon. Visit one of the most beautiful opera houses in the world at Teatro Amazonas, opened in 1896 during the rubber boom of the region. Relax on white-sand beaches or stroll through Adolfo Ducke Forest Reserve, the world’s largest urban forest. Then, it’s onto the island town of Parintins where a private Boi Bumba show awaits so you can experience the Parintins Folklore Festival. Continue on with a breathtaking cruise along the Amazon River.

Take two more days at sea to savor our specialty dining at Aqualina and Prime C before arriving in Fortaleza. Equal parts industry and culture, here you’ll find a flourishing arts scene, coastal-inspired gastronomy, and the stunning beaches of Praia do Futuro and Cumbuco. Then, it’s onto the northeast tip of Brazil to the sunny city of Natal, beloved as a local vacation destination and surrounded by sandy beaches, towering sand dunes, and gorgeous coral reefs. Continue onto Recife, a busy seaport known as the “Venice of Brazil” and named for the surrounding coastal recifes (reefs) offshore.

Cruise at sea for two more nights, then samba on down to Rio de Janeiro for an overnight stay in a city famous for its dramatic landscape and beach culture. At the top of Corcovado Mountain, the 125-foot-tall statue of Christ the Redeemer spreads its arms over Rio and offers breathtaking panoramic views of Guanabara Bay.

We leave Brazil with two nights at sea before arriving in Montevideo, Uruguay. Here, spend the day exploring Old Town (starting from Plaza Independencia) or strolling La Rambla. While visiting, be sure to try a parrillada—a local speciality of perfectly grilled meat and seafood. Your voyage then concludes in Buenos Aires.
