Aria Amazon

Aria Amazon, Peru Amazon Cruise Ship

Overview

Designed by the innovative Peruvian architect Jordi Puig and first launched in 2011, the Aria Amazon was fully renovated in 2015 for a state-of-the-art Amazon experience. With its ample cabins, exquisite dining, and full range of amenities, it’s the last word in luxury cruises.

Traveling aboard the black-hulled Aria represents a total rainforest immersion. With its 26-man crew and four on-board naturalist guides, you’ll steer a course through the villages and riverbanks of some of the jungle’s most scenic locations, learning about the macaws, piranhas, and pink dolphins that cavort alongside the ship, as well as the fragile ecosystem that sustains them. At night, you’ll relax under canopies of stars, as you fall asleep to the croaks and screeches of wild nature around you.

Suites

The Aria Amazon has 16 designer suites divided between two decks. Each is tastefully decorated with wood paneling and polished timber floors, as well as a floor-to-ceiling window that gives passengers a stunning view of the river. And since several suites have connecting doors to accommodate families, you won’t lack for space on board.

Bedding is equally commodious. In each suite, you’ll find a king-sized bed that can be separated into two twin cots, in addition to a window-side daybed. This means you’ll have a number of restful vantage points to contemplate the river as it slides by.

Finally, the Aria’s bathrooms utilize the latest eco-sensitive technology, with rain showers and organic personal-care products to protect the environment. For added comfort, all cabins are individually air-conditioned.

Common Areas

The Aria Amazon is fully outfitted for passenger comfort. That comfort starts with the indoor lounge, where you’ll listen to informative talks about local wildlife while sipping pisco sours on the plush sofas, and extends to the outdoor decks, where you can either mingle with the other passengers as you gaze at the river, or recline in a comfy chaise-lounge under the awning. There’s also a top-deck Jacuzzi for cooling off in the evenings.

Dining on the Aria is equally special. Under the direction of Executive Chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino, whose Amazonia-inspired cuisine has won awards from the Diner’s Club World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy, the kitchen produces delicacies such as scallops with wild almonds and umari fruit and grilled paiche with Amazon huatia potatoes. The Lima-based Schiaffino is forever heading out to the Amazon in search of new ingredients to work his culinary magic.

In your down time, you can work out in the glass-enclosed exercise room, get a massage with hand-crafted oils made from organic Peruvian products, or shop for souvenirs in the on-board store, which helps to support Amazonian artisans and their communities. It’s all part of the total jungle experience, courtesy of Aria.
