28Ship Type: River Cruise Ship
The Delfin II
is a stately riverboat recently built for the express purpose of exploring deep into the Peruvian Amazon at the headwaters of this mighty river - and doing so in modern tropical style.
A gracious riverboat with gorgeous suites, the Delfin II comfortably accommodates 28 guests in 10 suites and four master suites. At 120 feet, she is perfectly sized to sail along the upper Amazon River. Her entire third deck is open-air, offering beautiful open deck space where the expedition community gathers. Her public spaces are luxurious and well-appointed, and offer sweeping views of the river and rain forest. Furnishings are made of sustainably harvested local rain forest wood, and the ship is decorated with handicrafts from the ribereños, native people of the wildlife preserve we explore. A gracious hotel staff makes an art of providing impeccable shipboard services
Every spacious suite has a minimalist décor and luxurious overtones, and all are air-conditioned with individual controls. In your suite’s bathroom you’ll find showers stocked with organic shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel. A hairdryer and bathrobes are provided as well as moisturizing lotion, a sunscreen and insect repellant combo, plus an iron and ironing board, though our casual, expedition-style of travel ensures you’ll likely have no need to press your clothes for exploring.
Search for the Amazon’s rare birdlife and mammals on skiffs & kayaks for up-close exploration, and explore the tributaries that feed these rivers aboard 10-person skiffs that feature individual seats with cushions and plenty of legroom. Local naturalists, expert in spotting wildlife, join passengers in the skiffs. Kayaks offer a quiet way to explore remote, seldom-visited side streams.
Dining aboard is an extraordinary event daily. Meals are artfully prepared, and all food served aboard, except for olive oil and balsamic vinegar, is sourced locally. The dining room accommodates all guests at once for a single seating.
