This brand new ship features 20 sophisticated suites and a host of elegant lounging spaces, including a plunge pool on the sun deck and an outdoor cinema so you can unwind under the stars. Enjoy early morning and wake with the sun to go birdwatching along the Marañon River. Then canoe or kayak in Yanayacu-Pucate River while looking out for the Amazon’s famed pink river dolphins. Spend time in a traditional Amazonian village and meet the ribereños, or river people, and learn about their way of life. Indulge in birdwatching along the Samiria River, followed by some kayaking and a refreshing dip in the water. Join a wildlife excursion on Nauta Caño, and when night falls, identify the stars, planets, and the milky way in a guided stargazing session. Disembark in Nauta for your onward journey. Along the way, visit the Manatee Rescue Center,  and learn how biologists are rescuing and rehabilitating young manatees, and re-releasing them into the wild.
