Built in 2011 and fully renovated in 2015, the Aria Amazon exceeds the expectations of today’s most sophisticated travellers. Extremely generous dining and lounging areas include an outdoor river facing jacuzzi, bar and dining room. Floor-to-ceiling windows give amazing views over the river from all of the 16 air-conditioned suites, each measuring 250 square feet and with a sitting area and en-suite bathroom. Beds can be made up as twins or double. Four of the cabins have interconnecting doors for families. The ship also has a boutique, observation deck and exercise and massage room. The 27 crew include a paramedic and four English speaking naturalist guides. One of the highlights of a cruise on Aria is the cuisine, expertly prepared by Peru’s top chefs. Dishes include ingredients that grow only in the Amazon jungle. The Aria has six double kayaks and ten bicycles
