Ship Type: River Cruise Ship

Aqua Nera operates alongside the Aria Amazon, taking guests into the depths of the Peruvian Amazon in the comfort of luxury and featuring cuisine by Pedro Miguel Schiaffino, one of Peru’s finest chefs, known for creating refined cuisine from native Amazonian produce. Expert naturalist guides conduct small group excursions that reward guests with up-close wildlife encounters in the world’s most biodiverse rainforest.

On Board Living and Social Areas:

Observation Deck
Opening up to the vast Amazon sky, the observation deck on both ends of the Aqua Nera is the highest vantage point aboard the cruise ship and the ideal place for guests to observe life on the river and riverbanks. This is also a perfect spot for photography and birdwatching when the ship sails closer to shore.

Outdoor Lounge and Bar
Admire expansive views of the Amazon with a cocktail or two at the outdoor lounge areas, which are located at both the bow and the stern of the cruise ship and outfitted with comfortable loungers. Or sit barside and strike up a conversation with our friendly bartender. Plenty of shade is offered at the bow lounge area, thanks to Aqua Nera’s soaring sun canopy that also provides shelter to the ship’s river-facing plunge pool.

Indoor Lounge and Bar
With an inviting ambiance tastefully blending modern and classic elements, the Aqua Nera’s indoor lounge is the focal point of the top deck for social activities. Luxurious lounge sofas let guests relax in air-conditioned comfort while sipping on the drink of choice from the bar.

Pair the Amazon’s stunning scenery with chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino’s show-stopping cuisine at the stylish restaurant on Aqua Nera’s second deck. Choose to make dinner date night, or dine family-style as we deliver a five-star dining experience from start to finish.

Private Screening Room
Enhance any Amazon river cruise journey with our selection of classic films about this exotic region. Our cruise director will be happy to organize a private screening for up to ten guests here or on the Observation Deck.
The Private Screening Room also sees guests gather for private lecture, videos, and documentaries to learn about the fascinating cultures on their Amazon river journey.

Outdoor Pool
Let the jacuzzi plunge pool’s cool soothing waters take the edge off Amazonian heat after a jungle or skiff excursion. Located at the bow of the Aqua Nera, the outdoor pool is well shielded from the elements with a canopy and places guests in a commanding position to soak in the majestic panoramic vista of the Peruvian Amazon.

Love your next cruise ship workout at a gym that faces out to the Amazon river with full-height windows. The gym is also comprehensively equipped with essential machines and free weights.

Indulge in therapeutic relaxation with a body massage at our on-board spa designed with privacy and tranquility in mind. Let our experienced therapists work wonders to rejuvenate your mind and soul, or simply to relax your muscles after a day out on the Amazon. Both single and couple spa suites are available.

Library and Games Room
Immerse in the finest literature about the region or play a game of pool on our exquisite glass and wood table. The library and games room on the Aqua Nera is the ideal place for quiet contemplation.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
