The mighty Amazon region occupies 60% of Peru and is an unmissable wilderness experience best enjoyed on board a river cruise. One of our favourite vessels, the striking matte-black-hulled and recently refurbished Aria Amazon was designed by the innovative Peruvian architect Jordi Puig with a sophisticated boutique hotel-style ambience that incorporates natural wood flooring, a neutral colour scheme and soft lighting. There are 16 Design Suites on board, each measuring 23 square metres with floor to ceiling windows for a maximum of 32 guests. Four suites can interconnect for families. 26 crew include a paramedic and four Englishspeaking naturalist guides. Aqua Expeditions’ highly experienced river pilots and the most rigorous cruise ship standards ensure smooth travel and safety on the waters of the Peruvian Amazon.

The Cabins
16 suites (8 Design Suites measuring 23.2 square meters /250 square feet on the first deck and 8 Design Suites measuring 23.2 square meters / 250 square feet on the second deck). All outside-facing with floor to ceiling panoramic windows. All air conditioned with en suite sitting areas. Four interconnecting suites for families.
