What Our Guests are Saying

The Amazon River, the jungle, the villages, the animals--the indescribable beauty--all speak for themselves, but our experience was truly spectacular because of your entire staff with whom we came in contact as well as the Aria itself. To begin, the Aria is very special in so many ways! All of the special touches did not go unnoticed--from the impeccable servicing of our rooms, to the towel animals on our beds, to the "good night" treats, to the "welcome drinks" each time we returned "home" to the boat, to the beautifully folded napkins and new accompanying dishes at each meal. But, what truly made this a journey we will never forget, was the staff, all of whom knew us by name from day one!  Beginning with Juliana and Jorge, they were wonderful Cruise Directors, doing whatever was needed to make sure we were always comfortable, happy and well taken care of. However, the jewel of our trip was our experiences with the Naturalists. Knowing that each of them grew up in the jungle and are now fascinating us with their breath of knowledge about the jungle, the plants, the people, the animals and the birds was truly mind-blowing!  These individuals could NOT have been more helpful, accommodating, receptive to questions, knowledgeable, and went "well beyond the call of duty" to ensure that we all had an unforgettable experience. And we DID!

“Each day we disembark the ship for a bicycle excursion, cycling through local villages and happening upon weddings, funerals, card games and family meals… Each night we return to the boat for serpent head fish curries, red snapper, aromatic stir fries and moreish sticky rice.”

“It’s the end of only my first day out on the longest river in the world, as part of a cruise that sails from the town of Iquitos, Peru – known as the gateway to the Amazon, a two-hour flight north of the country’s capital, Lima – with a mission responsibly to introduce visitors to the flora and fauna that popular not only its depths, but also the acres of lush, rolling rainforest and jungle through which the river flows.”
