Aria Amazon River Cruises
Aqua Expeditions launched the first Amazon River cruise on the Peruvian section of this iconic river in 2007. Due to the extraordinary success of these unique journeys into the jungles of Amazonia, the company added a second luxury vessel, the Aria Amazon in 2011. With 7 night, 4 night and 3 night cruises on the Aria Amazon, guests travel far into the depths of the Amazon’s rainforests enjoying an intimate glimpse of her wildlife, ecosystems, local customs and marine and jungle landscapes. Listen to the many species of Peruvian birds, as they call their mates through the leafy canopy. Learn about the habitats essential to the livelihoods of the endangered Amazon River dolphins, taricaya turtles and manatee. Photograph a three toed sloth as he peers down at you while dangling from a nearby branch.
A cruise on the Aria Amazon offers guests the comfort and elegance of a custom-designed ship and the highest levels of guest service possible with a 1:1 guest to staff ratio. The Aria Amazon was designed by leading Peruvian architect Jordi Puig and measures 45 meters (147 feet). Spacious and indulgent, yet private enough to feel entirely exclusive, the Aria Amazon includes generous lounging and dining areas, and can accommodate a maximum of 32 guests plus crew including our onboard paramedic. Aqua Expeditions’ highly experienced river pilots and the most rigorous cruise ship standards ensure smooth travel and safety on the water.
Generous picture windows face the Amazon River (with blackout windows for maximum privacy) in each of the Aria Amazon’s 16 cruise ship Design Suites. Handsomely decorated with natural fibers and neutral hues, these air-conditioned accommodations with en suite sitting areas and stone bathrooms each measure between 23 square meters (250 square feet).
