Desire Cruises Reveals New 2022 Itineraries

Desire Cruises raises de bar of luxury cruising with new exotic routes to destinations including Rio de Janeiro and Ibiza


Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico, December 8, 2020 – Original Group, the leading expert of adult hospitality, revealed the itineraries for its 2022 Desire Cruise voyages. The adults-only, couples-only, clothing-optional cruises will take free-spirited travelers to new exhilarating destinations around the globe in 2022, boasting calls in Rio de Janeiro, Ibiza, and the Greek Islands.


All cruises feature outstanding culinary options, premium beverage package, couples’ workshops and seminars, and clothing-optional areas.
