The 124-foot M/V Amatista, sailing in the Peruvian Amazon River, was built with traditional riverboat lines yet boasts such comforts as air-conditioned cabins and private bathrooms for a maximum of 31 passengers. She has been newly refurbished and is operating under new management. The vessel immerses you in the "Forest of Mirrors," where you can see endless reflections of the jungle and sky right from your cabin or the 360-degree panoramic view sundeck.
