You’ve done the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, you’ve done Alaska and Disney, what cruise is left? Most people don’t immediately think of the Amazon, but here’s news: it’s not just for piranhas anymore.
And here’s the way to do the Amazon in style. The M/V Aria is a 147-foot luxury cruise ship that plies the northern Amazon in Peru. It’s got all the fixings like lounge bar, elegant dining room, jacuzzi, exercise room, and on-board boutique. All top class, air conditioned, and not at all the sort of thing you’d expect to find floating down the Amazon.
Suites are comparable to a five-star hotel, and have seating areas, luxury Peruvian linens, and extra-large picture windows looking out at the Amazon rainforest. And the nice thing is, there are only 32 of them. So you’re not going to get the kind of annoying crowds you get on one of those giant ocean cruises.
