The 16-suite M/V Aria was custom built by Peruvian architect Jordi Puig to offer an extraordinary level of comfort on the Peruvian Amazon. Launched in April 2011 to the highest standards of modern small ship cruise lines, Aria is fully air conditioned throughout and all her suites are comparable to a 5-star hotel with private baths, luxury toiletries and fine linen bedding. From the gourmet Peruvian cuisine to the crystal and china service at dinner, the amenities onboard the M/V Aria will treat you to an intimate but luxurious Amazon River cruise.
Common Areas Aboard Aria
Social areas aboard Aria include an extremely comfortable indoor lounge, boutique, observation deck and panoramic view exercise room with treadmills and eliptical machines. After your excursions into the Pacaya Samiria Reserve, come back to the comfort of the MV Aria and watch the Amazon scenery while enjoying a refreshing time in the cold water Jacuzzi located in the outdoor lounge.
If you need to contact your home or office for any emergency, the M/V Aria is equipped with a satellite phone. Prior to calling you will be informed of the current price of an international call and you can pay for those directly on board. There is no internet connection on board.
Dining Aboard 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.
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.
