The ultimate high standard cruise, the M/V Aqua guarantees an enchanting trip through Peru's northern Amazon. The ship consists of 12 grand suites, each offering unparalleled views of the water. With a sleek contemporary design, the rooms combine new age flair with comfort. Dining consists of fresh seafood and produce, flavored and spiced with Peruvian influences and European methods. Take advantage of the Observation deck and outdoor lounge, where one may absorb all the surroundings as they pass.
The 130-foot-long, M/V Aqua is the first true luxury cruise ship on the northern Amazon River in Peru and was custom built for Aqua Expeditions by Peruvian architect Jordi Puig in 2007 to offer an extraordinary level of comfort for our guests. The M/V Aqua can accommodate a maximum of 24 cruise ship guests plus crew. This luxury cruise ship is the perfect size to sail along the Amazon River, providing extremely comfortable lounge, dining and sleeping accommodations and modern navigation technologies and standards for cruise ship travel and safety on the water.
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 the Amazon River, complete with Amazon photography by French photographer Jean Claude Constant. Sheet and bedspreads are 100% Peruvian cotton, with at least a 280-thread count.
The M/V Aqua's four master suites, at the front of the vessel, measure 240 square feet and contain all of the luxury features of the main suites, including natural fiber tapestry paneling over the bed. Large glass windows at the foot of the king-sized bed make it possible for you to pull back the curtains and count the constellations in a sky filled with brilliant stars. These suites have a totally separate seating area for optimum privacy.

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 a 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, giving you the opportunity to experience a range of the finest South American vintages.
Your Amazon Voyage aboard the M/V Aqua can be a delightful stand-alone journey, or can be part of a longer exploration of the wonders of Peru. A pre- or post- itinerary will take you to our country’s other great sites: Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley, the mountain city of Cusco, and of course to Lima, the nation’s capital. Other add-ons, such as Lake Titicaca, are also available. These travel days are designed to match the level of luxury and individual attention that you will receive aboard the M/V Aqua.
