All of the Aqua Amazon’s eight oversized, air-conditioned guest suites measure a spacious 21 square meters (230 square feet) with panoramic picture windows designed to deliver Aqua Expeditions signature “eye-level cruising” with maximum privacy. Many guests recount that the time they spent gazing out the windows of their suite were among their most pleasant memories on board the Aqua Amazon.

AQUA AMAZON CABIN 1Master Suites aboard the Aqua Amazon are located at the front of the vessel with two on each deck. These even grander accommodations each measure 22 square meters (240 square feet) and contain all of the features of the suites, enhanced by extra space for luxurious lounging.

Each of our suites incorporates the ultimate in luxurious comfort for Aqua Amazon guests with a California king size bed (that can be split into two twin beds) made up with 100% Peruvian cotton sheets. Suites confer a luxury Amazon River lodge ambience, complete with original Amazonia images by French photographer Jean Claude Constant, an en suite sitting area from which to watch the wonders of the Amazon jungle flora and fauna float by, and a private bathroom incorporating the latest eco-sensitive technology.

Please note, we do not have Internet connection on board the Aqua Amazon, though guests report periodically connecting via roaming on their Blackberry, iPhone and other handheld devices, depending on our proximity to more developed areas. For cellular phone contact you may need a special telephone that can operate on a foreign signal although, keep in mind that most areas outside Iquitos are so remote that you will be unable to get a signal. If you need to contact your home or office for any emergency, the Aqua Amazon is equipped with a satellite phone. We will inform you, prior to calling, of the current price of an international call and you may pay for these directly on board.
