I just finished a four night tour on the Aqua Nera. To say that the boat, crew, food and tours exceeded my expectations is and understatement. I have never experienced the level of service I had on this boat. It was Four Seasons on the water maybe even better?

I went with the Delfin Amazon Cruise line... (ship: Delfin 3)
I have been to different luxury experiences and hotels and i have never been treated with GENUINE kindness and hapiness. The crew of delfin amazon cruises is absolutely incredible and have everthing it takes to make your trip marvellous (experience, information, medical emergy kits, knowledge of the amazon, etc). If you have any doubt of getting their service make this comment the last u need. Go for it and enjoy the beutiful amazon region in Peru and get to know the UNIQUE pink river dolphins, lots of birds, fish and wildlife. Make a diet before you go, because the food served is the best i have had in a lot of time, well presented and they even tell you what unique ingredients they are giving you. The boat is equipped with AC and every ammenity you could think of.

Have a great trip! 10/10 would repeat.

I had the great pleasure of cruising for 7 nights on the Aqua Nera. The pictures and video do not do this beauty of a ship justice. Gorgeous and I can't think of a better home base from which to explore the Amazon. From the moment they grabbed my luggage to the time we were back in Iquitos, the crew was on top of it and always there to help with whatever you may need. The ship and her crew exceeded every expectation. I am already looking in to another of the Aqua Expedition voyages.

My mom and I took a 7 night cruise aboard the brand new Aqua Nera. We had a fabulous experience. The guides, Alex and Billy, were so knowledgable and loved to see all the wildlife as much as we did. The crew on board was incredibly attentive and went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed and more! They truly thought of everything - including the bartender mixing us drinks in the middle of a skiff ride and goggles to keep the bugs out of our eyes during night excursions. We'd definitely travel with Aqua Expeditions again!

We spend several nights aboard the Iberostar Heritage Grand Amazon. It was a beautiful ship with comfortable spacious rooms, incredible dining room, and Caipirinha on the top deck while staying cool in the pool while soaking up the Brazilian rays can't be beat. Every day and night we took to the water and were led by our expert guides. We fished for piranhas. Watched colorful parrots fly, and even spent some time in a couple small river villages. It was an amazing trip!

Where is the wildlife? If you want a strictly tourist venue.... go here. NO reprieve from the absolutely drenching humidity or tse tse flies. Guides are over worked and tired which leads to unenthusiasm. Stay away... extremely disappointed.

Staff was amazing, they took care of every detail .Jorge the cruise manager does an exceptional job making sure your experience is perfect . Guides are extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic to share their expertise with you . They make the Amazon experience unforgettable . Bar staff are fun and experienced. Food was amazing - we have been on many cruises with different luxury lines and the food prepared on the Delfin III was the best by far . Tip - book the Owners Suite, the views from the cabin are memorable .
This is a luxury curated experience but the best way to really feel the culture of the Amazon.

I have been already a week back and I am trying to find a word to describe the experience. The word is Wondrous. This was an incredible week of great food, entertainment and amazing scenery. We decided to venture for the first time during the high water season. As I wanted the ability to go deeper in the tributaries, but I feel there are better chance to encounter more wildlife in the low water season.

I want to split my review in 3 parts. 1) The boat, 2) The food and 3) The tours and wildlife.

Boat. I went before on a Nile cruise in what was supposed to be a boutique cruise and it was pretty disappointing. When I arrived in ArianI could not believe my eyes. The bait is gorgeous, clean, smell fantastic. When shown my room, the size, amenities and comfort were beyond words. It is fantastic. The bars area is super relaxing and so are the outside areas.

Food

Get ready to gain weight but not like a Caribbean cruise. This is fine sinning at the highest level of preparation. The food is amazing and prepared exquisitely with local ingredients. The Aria group let’s you taste all the local gifts of the area elevated at a fine dining level. It was just amazing.

Tours

Every day you will go by skiff and they will. Take you to amazing areas. The jingles are not for everyone mosquitoes, insect and tarantulas. But you will be exposed to areas that very few will ever experience. Wildlife. Howler monkeys, spider monkeys, tamarin, marmoset, capuchins, pink dolphin , gray dolphins and tons of sloths. We never saw the wild manatee, jaguar ir capibara but they are most likely in the low water.

This boat is expensive but it was worth it. I love the experience and it was imply amazing. As far as the insect they don’t bother me but we went easy. We used head mesh and it was not that bad. Highly recommend them.

The Amazon river was an amazing trip. I did not know what to expect but it far exceeded my expectations. The excursions that were planned for us were so enjoyable and the guides added such a personal touch. They were all very knowledgeable and entertaining. I will definitely recommend Aqua Expeditions to my friends.
