Lonely Planet Mar Issue

“There’s not a single porthole to peer out of on the Aria Amazon miniature cruise ship – its 16 suites all have polished floor-to-ceiling windows, to ensure passengers don’t miss the three-toad sloths and pink dolphins winking at them as they pass.”

Suitcase Magazine

“With capacity for only ten passengers each, not only is the intimate guide-to-guest ratio favorable, but they also provide access to offshore destinations and to shallower parts of the river that many other luxury cruises can’t reach. Consequently, the excursions on offer are intimate, diverse and immersive, taking full advantage of the region’s rich biodiversity and strong cultural heritage. “

Sawubona – South Africa

“An Amazon river cruise on the Aria Amazon will take you deep into the Peruvian jungle in five-star luxury.”

Wanted – South Africa

“Gillian McLaren hits the bucket-list big-time on a thoroughly exotic, luxury adventure along the Amazon River with Aqua Expeditions.”

Conde Nast Traveller – UK

“One of the high points of the trip is visiting a Buddhist temple, where we speak to a pair of monks, who then bless us individually and give out good faith bracelets. Afterwards, a speed boat whisks us off to a sandy stretch of riverbank where a makeshift bar has been set up, just in time for the sunset. It’s the perfect moment to reflect on a trip that offers an incredible chance to delve deeper into this fascinating country.”

Cruise International – UK

“Aqua Expeditions specializes in river ship cruises and sails the Mekong in Cambodia and Vietnam as well as the Amazon, with its two boutique ships, Aqua Mekong and Aria Amazon.”

“Elsewhere in Peru, but consistent with the new eco-mindfulness, Aqua Expeditions—which runs a rainforest river cruise up the Amazon—is working with a group of local fisherman to ensure the native Paiche fish are farmed responsibly as part of a growing “rainforest to table” movement.”

TTG Luxury – UK

‘Aqua Expeditions has launched a Honeymoon & Anniversary Experience, featuring romantic touches and offering guests an immersive river safari experience – all for the same price as a standard Aqua Expeditions trip. These sleek ‘floating boutique hotels’ sail on the Peruvian stretch of the Amazon and on the Mekong in south-east Asia.’

TTG Luxury – UK
