The M/V Aqua is the first true luxury vessel to cruise the northern Amazon. The all-suite ship features 12 cabins with large panoramic windows and an interior design by famed Peruvian designer Jordi Puig.

Common Areas Aboard M/V Aqua

Guests can socialize in the dining room, bar, on the Observation Deck and in the outdoor lounge. There is also a small boutique. A crew of 16, plus three skilled guides, lead the day's activities and service. Rates include all excursions, meals and wine with meals.  

Relax between Amazon adventures, or enjoy a pre- or post-dinner cocktail, in Aqua's air-conditioned Indoor Bar, a soothing oasis in an exotic location. You will find that you spend a lot of time on the generous top-level Observation Deck, sunbathing, reading a good book, enjoying some down time after an excursion or simply watching the river go by.  

Dining Aboard M/V Aqua

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.  

Fine dining, deep in the Amazon jungle, may sound like unlikely, yet you will find it aboard the M/V Aqua. 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, including a selection of organic house wines, giving you the opportunity to experience a range of the finest South American vintages.  

Drinks and light snacks are available in the Outdoor Lounge, perfect any time, but especially lovely at night, when you can see stars glistening bright.  

Safety Aboard M/V Aqua

Every effort is made to ensure the safety of all passengers aboard The M/V Aqua. The vessel is equipped with backup radio communication equipment, utilizing a separate battery pack and satellite telephone service. It is also fully outfitted with lifejackets, flares and signals, fire extinguishers and smoke detectors in each cabin. There are also energy lighting and emergency signs in the passage ways. Its three aluminum launch boats, which can double as life boats in an emergency, are equipped with four-stroke low emission engines, and can remain in constant communication with the main vessel. Each launch boat can accommodate 8 passengers. There is a paramedic on board at all times available to assist guests when needed. Guides and certain crew members are first-aid trained. A crew member is assigned to keep watch around the clock, whether the vessel is sailing or docked.

Cabins Aboard M/V Aqua

Aqua's 12 oversized guest suites, including four 180° panoramic master suites, feature en suite sitting areas and generous outward-facing panoramic windows. Each of the handsomely decorated, air-conditioned suites measures between 230 to 240 square feet and is designed by noted Peruvian architect Jordi Puig. Four suites can be interconnected to cater to families.

Suites - 101-104, 201-204

All of the M/V Aqua's oversized suites measure a spacious 230 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 theAmazon River, complete with Amazon photography by French photographer Jean Claude Constant. Sheet and bedspreads on the king size beds are 100% Peruvian cotton, with at least a 280-thread count.  

Master Suites - 105-106, 205-206

For the ultimate luxury aboard the M/V Aqua, book one of spacious master suites, measuring a generous 240 square feet and including a separate, intimate seating area for optimum privacy. These four fully air-conditioned suites, 105, 106, 205, and 206, face outward at the very front of the vessel, and are wrapped in panoramic glass windows. 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 Master 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.
