In more detail

The Aria Amazon is the ultimate luxury cruise ship on the Amazon River and this matte-black hulled vessel has been architect-designed with a boutique hotel aesthetic to create an indulgent but unobtrusive backdrop to the fascinating riverscapes all around. Think polished timber flooring, soft lighting and neutral hues. Each of the 16 exquisitely-designed suites is a sizeable 23 square metres, with a Californian king bed swathed in Peruvian cotton sheets that faces the floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows. There’s also a day bed, small table and chairs and an ensuite with rain shower and organic amenities. The guest lounge and dining room are particularly capacious, with panoramic windows on both sides and there is an expansive outdoor deck with comfortable furniture under an awning to provide shade from the sun. It’s here you’ll also find the on-board Jacuzzi, an ideal way to cool off after a day in blazing temperatures with high humidity, while the views from the signature glass walls in the gym provide a captivating diversion from the treadmill or bike. The Peruvian and Amazon-inspired dining on board is second-to-none under Executive Chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino’s expert guidance. Attentive staff quickly learn your tastes and preferences, making for a truly bespoke experience in a refined dining room festooned with local artworks, crystal glassware and fine china. Guests aboard the Aria Amazon travel deep into the Amazon’s rainforests, tracking pink dolphins and taricaya turtles before taking skiffs to explore the mighty river’s tributaries with expert, English-speaking naturalist guides helping you spot the abundant wildlife hiding in the dense canopies overhead.
