24 Manaus Cruise Reviews

This was an early morning bird watching expedition with Brazilian ornithologists. We confirmed 34 species in a short amount of time. Great trip and professionally done.

Enjoyed this port because it was a city in the middle of nowhere. We traveled miles and miles up the amazon to finally arrive a this nice city. It is a typical Brazilian city. The shops were a little less sophisticated than the big coastal cities. We stayed the Tropical Manaus. An interesting hotel with almost a dozen boutique shops and a small zoo right on the property. It was a short walk to the river and a float plane ride. Some areas of the hotel are going through renovation. The room we were assigned was not real fancy, but adequate for our limited stay.

Be prepared to see what appears to be a mirage! You are cruising down a big muddy river an all of a sudden a big city appears. Quite mind boggling to be sure. Lots of history here. Take a river cruise and go off to visit the marshes, caimans and wildlife. We were out all day and ate on a floating restaurant.The theater tour is good but too short. Definitely some streets to stay off of. Read Less

Manaus in the last city on the Amazon that most cruise ships travel to from the west. It is a big city that is the hub for this area. It is also where rivers meet and one of the most interesting things to see is what they call the "meeting of the waters." The Amazon muddy color meets a blue river and the two have different PH factors and they have a real process of the mixing of the rivers. It is so visual and dynamic. Manaus also has a beautiful Opera House from the rubber baron days that should not be missed- You can easily walk to it and tour it without the shore excursion. It also had some great tours back into the rainforest on small boats where you truly saw the rainforest way of life, many birds and giant water lilies. Read Less

We arrived on a Sunday and at the cruise terminal representatives of two jewellery companies urged us to take their shuttle to a hotel to see their wares on the basis that 'everything is closed'. This was not true. Don't miss the way of the cross on the walls leading up to the cathedral as well as the cathedral itself. The street markets are colourful and appealing. I was particularly delighted to find that I was not being perpetually harassed by vendors. They were happy to help if you expressed an interest but otherwise left you alone. Some fellow travellers were fortunate enough to visit the Opera House and find the symphony orchestra rehearsing, thus enjoying a free concert! The heat and humidity somewhat curtailed my explorations. The next day I took an excursion along the river to the Meeting of the Waters, to a local village and to the local wetlands to see the birds an the Victoria lilies (Victoria amazonica) with leaves of three metres wide. Again, I was fortunate to have a guide with good English and a love for his country. Read Less

Didn't really care for this city of 2 million plus. But on the other hand, it was safe and worth visiting. Shore excursions, like a rain forest jungle hike a short river run from the city was excellent.

I might have the wrong port but it was in Turkey. Loved this place. Took a taxi from port to town and then walked to the palace. Three euros. lots of great pictures. There is a great gift shop right outside with and old woman who insists you call her MAMA. She drags you into the shop. She was a lot of fun and had some great stuff. I bought a hand knit shawl for only 10 euros. Loved walking around the town. Read Less
