Aqua Expeditions to Launch Second Amazon Ship

Upscale Peruvian Amazon river cruise operator Aqua Expeditions will launch its second vessel, Aria, in April 2011, CEO Francesco Galli-Zugaro announced. The luxury river cruise ship will accommodate 32 guests, in suite and mini-suite accommodations featuring floor-to-ceiling windows.

Aria will also feature a fully air-conditioned top deck Observation Lounge, an exercise room, an outdoor Jacuzzi and Sun Deck, an Amazon Wildlife reference library and air-conditioned multimedia room, and cuisine created by award-winning Executive Chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino.

Aria will offer three-, four- and seven-night itineraries to remote and pristine areas of the Amazon River, including the Pacaya-Samiria Reserve. The ship, with 24 crew members, will also feature a staff of four world-class naturalist guides. The Aria will join Aqua Expeditions’ first ship, the 130-foot Aqua, which was built in 2007 and can accommodate a maximum of 24 guests plus crew. The Aqua features 12 suites, including four master suites. For more information, visit www.aquaexpeditions.com.
