Life is casual aboard the M/V Aqua or the M/V Aria so you can feel free to pack light for your Amazon River luxury cruise vacation.
Your Amazon cruise vacation includes excursions into the Amazon rainforest and Amazon jungle. Therefore, you will want to put comfortable walking shoes, light-weight long pants and long-sleeved tops on your luxury cruise packing list. Also useful to bring with you: a wide-brimmed hat, sunscreen, extra socks, mosquito repellant with DEET, and of course, your camera, with charger and extra batteries and a converter. We provide rubber boots for wetland excursions. We also provide waterproof ponchos with hoods to protect against rain.
During meals on board our luxury cruise ship in the dining room, we ask our guests to wear casual clothing and shoes. There are hairdryers available in every suite on the M/V Aqua or the M/V Aria. Our vessel has 220-volt outlets in the staterooms so you should be able to use your shaver with a converter if necessary.
Don’t forget to include some items that you can give away to the locals (t-shirts, pens and paper are especially prized). In case you do not have enough space to bring those, you can always buy our special kits at our boutique on board.
We suggest the use of soft suitcases/bags for easy storage on board the M/V Aqua. We allow you to bring as much luggage as you like but, please note, there are international airline limits on both checked and carry-on baggage. LAN PERU for example, allows 20 kilos (44 pounds) of checked luggage and 8 kilos (18 pounds) of carry-on baggage. Porters are available at both the airport and pier. As soon as you have identified your luggage, porters will ensure that your bags arrive at the embarkation point and will take your suitcases to your suite.
