Aria: River cruise adventures on the Amazon (retired)

Avalon Waterways tells us they are no longer chartering Aria for Amazon cruises.


There’s serenity, romance and a measure of adventure when cruising the Amazon River aboard Aria. Sailing the northern stretch of the river in Peru, Aria brings you up close to the wildlife and natural beauty of one of the world’s great rainforests.  Whether your interests favor a day trip exploring ancient Incan archaeological treasures, swimming with pink dolphins or gliding through the tributaries of the Amazon, Aria offers even seasoned travelers new opportunity to discover (or re-discover) this remarkable part of the world.

Aria is fitted with onboard amenities that promise sailing in comfort. Cruisers can wake each morning to the scenery passing by the windows of their air-conditioned suite. In the afternoon, you can soak in the rays and take in the view from the outdoor lounge and outdoor Jacuzzi. Dining options include gourmet Peruvian cuisine prepared with fresh, local ingredients.
