House Rules

DESIRE’S CONCEPTUAL WAY TO PLAY

Desire Cruises is committed to providing safe voyages, so that all guests may fully enjoy their “Desire Experience”.
We ask you to respect the following guidelines throughout your stay:

  • For the comfort of all guests, we ask that you use appropriate attire in all restaurants & other designated areas that are not clearly marked as clothing optional.

  • Keeping the identity of our guests’ private is extremely important to us. For this reason, taking photos or videos in any/all of our ship’s public areas is strictly prohibited. Feel free to enjoy doing so in the privacy of your stateroom.

  • Our Playrooms have been designed for sexual & erotic pleasure. We ask that you use these couples-only areas to fulfill your intimate desires.

  • Please, treat all guests with utmost respect, and remember the Golden Rule: “NO” means “NO”.

  • Balance is important. Some like to rest while others party. After midnight, your fellow guests would appreciate it if noise levels were kept to a minimum in our ship’s corridors.

  • We have created an open-minded ambiance aboard our Desire Cruise, however, drug use will not be tolerated.

  • Neither Desire nor Azamara Club Cruises will be held responsible for items left outside your safety deposit box. Please, be sure to place valuable items in the safe.

  • Desire Cruises takes great pride in providing you with a safe, couples-only environment in which to enjoy your vacation. However, it is a firm company policy that all staff members are strictly forbidden from interacting intimately or drinking with guests. Doing so will result in their immediate dismissal.

***These conceptual house rules are in addition to all rules & regulations stipulated by Azamara Club Cruises.

  • General Travel Tips (Click Here)

    ATTIRE & PACKING TIPS
    In keeping with our friendly yet sophisticated onboard environment, we encourage guests to follow a “resort casual” dress code.

    Out of respect for others, bare feet, tank tops, baseball caps, bathing suits, shorts, and jeans are not allowed in the dining room or specialty restaurants. When dining at Windows Café, guests must wear footwear and a cover-up or shirt.

    Formal evening wear is not expected nor required in our restaurants. If you prefer to dress more formally, you are welcome to do so. Please note that tuxedo rentals are not available onboard.

    Before cruising be sure to check our Theme Nights calendar in order to dress appropriately for our sensual evening activities.

    PASSPORT AND VISA REQUIREMENTS

    For international travel, a valid passport is required.

    Depending on your nationality, visas may be required to enter certain countries as well. Please contact the embassy (consular services) of each country on your voyage—or a visa service of your choice—for specific visa requirements.

    CUSTOMS

    On the last day of your voyage, your cruise director will provide detailed instructions about clearing customs. We highly recommend that you attend this important and informative talk.

    WE REALLY DON’T WANT TO LEAVE WITHOUT YOU!

    For the specific boarding time of your voyage, please check with your travel professional.
