Went on the 3 night cruise with my partner (ages 24 & 27). Lots of activities - three times per day. Room, boat and food was as described and room had a very nice view. We stayed in the master suite at the front of the boat, which was not noisy. We booked through a tour operator online and got... More

We thought the four night trip was perfect. This was our first river cruise despite being world travelers and we were not disappointed. Enjoying the views from our room, looking forward to truly memorable meals at each seating and being pampered and cared for by darling people who obviously enjoyed and took great pride in their profession and the company...

We travelled the Amazon with Aqua Amazon. We took the 4 night trip. We would think seriously about the 7 night trip. The 3 night would be too short. We travelled as a family -- with a 13 year old girl and an 11 year old boy, but unfortunately without our 19 year old who would have loved this. The... More

Amazing experience, just loved every minute of the time we spent on board. The cabins were great, huge walls of glass to give fantastic views of the river and life around it.The guides were soooo caring and knowledgeable, especially Daniel and the trips were fun and informative- how many people get to swim in the Amazon and see pink dolphins?...

If a 6th star could be awarded it would. What a fabulous experience. From the moment you get off the plane in Iquitos the crew and staff are there to cater for your every need. Truly fantastic guides are on hand to show you the wildlife and take care of your safety. From swimming in the Amazon to Piranha fishing,... More

The Aqua Expeditions Cruise - has completely ruined me for regular cruises. It was out of this world. Our cabin, the common areas and the food were that of a 5-star hotel, and the tours with the guides were so much fun, exciting and very informative. It was so cool to have guides who were all originally from the jungle... More

We have recently returned from 5 weeks in South America concentrating on Equador, Galapagos islands and Peru. The Aria Amazon was stunning. The beautiful luxury cruiser is fully air conditioned and every apartment has an entire glass frontage so you can just sit on the bed and watch the Amazon River flow past. We had a share 3 room and... More

Yarapa River Lodge - WOW!!! We were looked after from a pick up at our hotel in Iquitos to being dropped back to the airport at the end of our 5 night adventure. Our naturalist was amazing and every day he would either find an animal or bird that we had not seen the day before. Ericson (Eagle eye Eric... More

My wife and I ended our 3 week Peru adventure on the Amazon river and I can't say enough about the M/V Aqua and her crew. The ship is amazing. Small in scale but elegant with clean modern lines and well maintained. Our stateroom with it's panorama window was just as nice. Cabin Service was an almost too many 3... More
