Cruise of a lifetime! We boarded the ship outside of Iquitos via speedboats, which was a blast.

The ship is lovely, the rooms are quite nice, bathroom much bigger than most cruise lines, and the balcony! Well, we didn't spend much time on out balcony since we were so busy with the activities, and the common areas are so nice. The bar/lounge/open air dining and 4th floor observation deck is great for watching the pink river dolphins playing along side the ship. Vicente is an excellent bar tender, and always made sure to put out good snacks.

Excursions - well, we stuck with Segundo, our naturalist, and Jorge the best boat driver in the Amazon. Both were excellent spotters of wild life, and Segundo had great stories. On the morning that everyone opted for kayaking, my husband & I stayed on the speed boat for a private wild life tour - amazing! Segundo is a knowledgeable and fun person, and he is as good with plants as he was with the birds and other creatures living in the Amazon. The village visit was fun with the children, they are adorable, and very curious. The only stop we made that was not of interest to us was the rum distillery, however we did meet the world's most friendly dog.

Cabin Review

Cabin Standard

The cabin is really good, front on the ship. We could see a lot from out deck, and often times were tied up to the bank on our side. We could watch birds and all the gorgeous butterflies. The bathroom is really nice, gorgeous walk in shower. We liked being at the end of the hall, it was very quiet.
