To celebrate its 10-year anniversary, Aqua Expeditions has launched a new set of itineraries for its Amazon River cruises aboard Aria Amazon and a series of Up Close & Personal hosted departures. With a wide range of active excursions offered twice a day, guests can now choose from wildlife photography to canoeing to kayaking, swimming, biking and even suspended bridge walks deep within the Amazon rainforest.
As the sun sets, relax at movie night or brush up on the Southern Hemisphere’s many constellations using the Sky Guide app and the telescope on the upper deck. For the adventurous, join a night excursion by skiff to spot nocturnal wildlife and listen to the sounds of the night jungle. On the final evening, celebrate with sunset Happy Hour and live music before a gourmet dinner by chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino.
The Up Close & Personal hosted cruise series allows guests to experience the Amazon and the Mekong alongside three experts in the conservation, cruise and hospitality industries. Discover the secrets of the rivers and rainforests with world-class explorer and ocean conservationist, Jean-Michel Cousteau. Get to know Aqua Expeditions CEO, Francesco Galli Zugarowho, and learn culinary tips from chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffinoour as he continues to create Amazon-based cuisine.
