The Aria Amazon is a river cruise ship retreat featuring eco-sensitive technology, natural scenes, and modern comforts. Designed by Peruvian architect and interior designer Jordi Puig, the state-of-the-art vessel was custom-built to explore the Peruvian Amazon and the famed Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve in absolute comfort and luxury, with minimal impact to the delicate Amazon River and Rainforest environment.
On board 16 contemporary suites, with interconnecting family suites available, boast polished sustainably sourced natural wood, signature floor-to-ceiling windows, rain showers and organic bath amenities. The dining area is bedecked in fine China, crystal, and Peruvian art, serving meals that pay tribute to Amazonian cuisine, presented in contemporary and grand fashion, and paired with renowned South American wines. Indulge in an on-deck therapeutic spa treatment from internationally trained wellness therapists with essential oils made from indigenous ingredients sourced in the highlands of Peru and Amazonia, or alternatively head to the ship’s top deck which features a jacuzzi, indoor lounge and bar, and an outdoor observation deck.
With a 1:1 crew-to-guest ratio, guests are assured the most fulfilling, life-enriching Amazon River experience, complete with up-close-and-personal wildlife encounters. Multilingual expert naturalist guides lead tailored small-group excursions, no larger than 12 guests, to the source of the Amazon River, the Amazonian city of Iquitos, and the Pacaya Samiria Reserve. From the unique wildlife and plant life to the local communities and their long-standing traditions, learn all about this incredibly rich and varied destination. The vessel’s custom-designed ergonomic, low-emissions fleet of private speedboats take guests deep into the wild and beautiful Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve while eEducational talks and documentaries are hosted in the ship’s airy glass lounge delicately painted in soft light and furnished with plump couches, ensuring a holistic and fascinating Amazon River journey.
Aria Amazon operates alongside the Aqua Nera, taking guests into the depths of the Peruvian Amazon in the ultimate comfort of luxury.
