Our Amazon River luxury cruise ship is equipped with backup radio communication equipment, utilizing a separate battery pack and satellite telephone service. Our cruise ship is also fully outfitted with lifejackets, flares and signals, fire extinguishers, and smoke detectors in each cabin. We have emergency lighting and signs in the passage ways.
The Aria Amazon has four aluminum launch boats on board, which double as life boats in an emergency and which are equipped with four-stroke low emission engines. These outboards can remain in constant communication with the main cruise ship. Each boat can accommodate 8 passengers. Life vests are provided for use while onboard these boats and you are required to wear them.
The Aria Amazon has a paramedic on board at all times available to assist guests when necessary. Our professional Amazon River guides and certain crew members are first-aid trained. A crew member is assigned on our navigation deck to keep watch around the clock, 24/7, whether the vessel is sailing or docked.
