Azamara Pursuit
Sailing: November 13, 2019

Portuguese culture comes to life on both sides of the Atlantic on this incredible voyage that's all about Destination Immersion® experiences. Your journey starts in Lisbon, the colorful, historic heart of Portugal, where you’ll be delighted by the cobblestoned streets, hilly neighborhoods, and warm welcomes everywhere you go. Check out the venerable São Jorge Castle, or roam the winding alleys of the Alfama district lined with taverns where fado singers perform. 

After leaving Lisbon, spend a day at sea before docking in Madeira, an archipelago that’s beloved by visitors from all over the world. Don’t forget to sample a taste of Madeira wine along with a big bowl of espetada, a savory beef stew. Next, you’ll explore the Canary Islands, making stops in La Palma and Tenerife. Set against a volcanic landscape, La Palma is best explored on foot – a hike through the Caldera de Taburiente National Park followed by a refreshing dip in Charco Azul, a natural swimming hole, is a fantastic way to experience this island gem. In Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, relax on the beaches at Los Gigantes or take a walk on the wild side at Tenerife Zoo Monkey Park or Loro Park, home to colorful tropical birds. 

With two days at sea, there’s plenty of time to unwind with a spa massage and relax on the Sanctum terrace. Savor authentic Italian cuisine with a twist at Aqualina or dig into a succulent steak or seafood feast at Prime C. Next, you’ll dock in Mindelo, Cape Verde, an exciting port city known for its nightlife and Brazilian-influenced Carnaval celebrations. Prefer something a little more low-key? Browse the Museu do Mar, a museum offering visitors a glimpse into São Vincente’s history, or enjoy a meal at one of the eclectic waterfront cafés.
 
When you re-embark, you’ll have five more nights at sea enjoying everything the Pursuit has to offer before arriving in Brazil. Soak up the sun on the pristine beaches of Maceio before sailing on to Salvador de Bahia, one of the oldest colonial cities in the Americas. You’ll spend two nights in Salvador – plenty of time to immerse yourself in the historic city center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or browse the shops of the Old Town. 

Fall for the local charm of Vitoria. A small island off the coast of Espirito Santo, wander warm, soft sands along the beach and chat with friendly locals. Hike Morro de Moreno, an urban hilltop marvel that’s framed by mountains overlooking the sparkling bay below.

Your Portuguese Discoveries voyage concludes with an overnight in Rio De Janeiro, where iconic sites like the Christ the Redeemer statue and Sugarloaf Mountain await.
