Aria Amazon

The M/V Aria is the ultimate luxury cruise ship navigating the northern Amazon River in Peru. Custom built in 2011, the ship resembles a “floating boutique hotel” more than an expedition vessel. The Aria boasts new furniture, flooring, air-conditioned units and sliding doors, as well as painting inside and out. The suites’ interiors follow the same trend, with linens made of fine Peruvian cotton, artwork by local craftspeople, and technologies designed to make as little impact on the environment as possible.

The striking 147-foot-long vessel is designed to accommodate a maximum of 32 guests, plus 24 crew members, including a paramedic and four English-speaking naturalist guides. In each of the 16 “design suites” (averaging 250 square feet), soft lighting, natural fibers, and neutral hues create a relaxing luxurious enclave of comfort. In your air-conditioned suite, the only challenge may be deciding whether to gaze upon the Amazon from atop your king-size California bed (which can be separated into two twin beds) or do your viewing from the cozy window-side daybed – binoculars in hand.

The vessel’s social areas include an indoor lounge (also air-conditioned), an outdoor lounge, an observation deck (with its outdoor Jacuzzi), and an extremely generous dining room. The indoor lounge serves as a library and a media room with a flat-screen television for watching the latest DVDs. Outside, chairs and loungers are provided for relaxing as the ship winds its way along the Amazon River as well as two Peruvian tributaries.

Three meals are included daily, with "house wines" accompanying dinner. Juice, coffee, soft drinks, and water are provided as part of the fare, though bar drinks and wines from the extensive international list are also available. Snacks, too, are provided during the day and in the evenings in the lounge.

Off-ship excursions into the Amazon rainforest from the Aria Amazon showcase unique Amazon wildlife, birds and the plant life of this rich habitat. Each of the ship’s customized aluminum motorized launch boats, or “skiffs,” take up to 8 passengers on two to three daily excursions deep into Amazon’s snaking tributaries. One of the ship’s four world-class nature guides will then introduce you to a world of new cultural contacts as well as Armored catfish, Red-bellied piranhas and the beady-eyed heads of Spectacled caimans in these enigmatic black waters.

Four of the suites are interconnecting for families, and each of the 16 suites has an internal communications system.

 

Facilities:

  • Indoor Lounge – Floor to ceiling panoramic windows on both sides confer a seamless connection to the ever-changing scenery of Amazonia from this spacious living room finished with wood flooring and soft lighting. With its full bar at one end and a well-stocked library at the other, with fresh Amazon flowers and unique artifacts in between, the Indoor Lounge encourages lingering on the comfortable cappuccino sofas surrounded by panoramic picture windows.
  • Outdoor Lounge – The outdoor deck on the Agua Amazon receives plenty of sunshine for those who wish to soak it up on cushioned loungers during the day or enjoy the cooler evenings under the star-filled sky. Guests seeking fresh Amazon air without being exposed to the sun will find plenty of space and comfortable seating under the expansive awning of the outdoor lounge.
  • Observation Deck – Guests can enjoy socializing up on the Aria Amazon’s top floor Observation Deck, where they often enjoy the outdoor Jacuzzi, an ideal way of cooling off while watching Pink river dolphins cavort and sipping a cooling pisco punch.
  • Dining Room – With floor-to-ceiling windows that define this elegant space, which was designed with modern materials and generous picture windows across all outward facing walls, the interior of the Aria Amazon dining room stays loyal to the classic cruising experience by following the contours of the ship’s stern. Fine china and crystal are matched here by attentive, personalized service from longstanding staff.
  • Workout Facilities – The Aria Amazon’s signature walls of glass come in especially helpful here in the ship’s dedicated workout space, offering an engrossing distraction for guests on the treadmill and the stationary bicycle.

These English-speaking experts point out the smallest details that make Amazonia extraordinary.  Similarly, the highly experienced ship’s captain, crew, and the onboard paramedic make the difference between a visit to Peru and an unforgettable, life-enriching experience.
