A New Cruise of Amazonian Proportions!
This week is National Cruise Week so I'd like to share with you an amazing new cruise that has just been added to our portfolio; Aqua Expeditions, the first adventure company to introduce five-star luxury cruises on the Peruvian Amazon.
Their two boats take 24 and 32 passengers with each generously sized cabin having a king-size bed, sitting areas and floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows, which provide an incredible viewing experience. The service is superb, the food gourmet with a Peruvian flair and the wine list the very best South America has to offer - but it's the access into the world's last great wilderness will take your breath away!
Three- four- and seven-night cruises leave from Iquitos and sail through the Pacaya Samiria National Park, which is the size of Belgium, and a place where you can see squirrel monkeys, pink dolphins, Caimans and a rich bird life. Fish for piranhas, enjoy night river trips and visit the riberenos (riverside villages cut off from modern life) and smell of air in a world without pollution, because this is one of the last pristine places on earth.
Of course our long-standing luxury cruise partners also have a lot to offer, not least Silversea, who are offering an extra saving of £300 per suite for any bookings taken during National Cruise Week and through until 30 September for any voyage departing prior to 30 June 2012.
