The M/V Aria’s sixteen oversized cruise ship design suites, feature en suite sitting areas and generous outward-facing picture-windows with panoramic Amazon river views. Each of the handsomely decorated, air-conditioned cruise ship suites measure around 240 square feet. Four of these suites can be interconnected, to cater to families.
All of the M/V Aria's oversized suites measure a spacious 240 square feet, with a comfortable en suite seating area and extra-large windows that enable you to get the "big picture" of the rivers and their banks from the comfort of your air-conditioned room. All suites are decorated to create the feeling of a luxury lodge on the Amazon River.
Open the curtain at the foot of your California king-sized (or separate singles) bed at night and count the constellations in a sky filled with brilliant stars. The Design Suites, like all of our luxury suites, contain a private bath, complete with all necessities, plus a shower that has hot water around the clock, a hairdryer, and a basket of luxury toiletries. The fine Peruvian linens, with a thread count in the hundreds, sooth you to sleep with a sense of elegant luxury. And there is an internal communication system, to facilitate announcements. For the most luxurious Aqua Expeditions Experience, book a Design Suite on the M/V Aria.
Gaze out at the great wilderness from the elegant comfort of the ship’s dining room. Fine china and crystal and superb service are part of the experience, matching what you would expect from a fine dining restaurant in Lima. Choose to dine à deux, or at a table accommodating your whole family or your new friends.
Menu & Description
Fine dining, deep in the Amazon jungle, may sound like unlikely—yet you will find it aboard the M/V Aria. Executive chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino, one of Lima’s culinary stars, has created a menu that draws on both Peruvian and European influence. Wine is included with meals, giving you the opportunity to experience a range of the finest South American vintages.
