Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection is known for its luxe river cruises all over the world. But the company has just revealed they will venture into uncharted territories this year setting sail in South America for the first time throughout the Peruvian Amazon.
Set to debut in September 2020, the Aria Amazon will launch two new itineraries. The 15-day Peruvian Amazon & Machu Picchu Exploration will start with a stay in Lima, followed by a seven-night cruise through the Amazon rainforest, and end with trips to the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, and Cusco. The 11-day Peruvian Rivers & Rainforest Discovery will also have a five-star stay in the capital before sailing down the famous river and its tributaries.
“We’re beyond thrilled to launch these extraordinary trips in South America, a completely new destination for us,” Ellen Bettridge, President & CEO of Uniworld, said in a statement. “We’ve seen great success with our exotic cruises and know these Peruvian Amazon itineraries have the perfect combination of luxury, active adventure, and comfort that our guests appreciate.”
The Aria Amazon is an all-suite ship complete with floor-to-ceiling windows so that you can watch the wildlife pass by from the comfort of your bed. There’s also a top deck with a hot tub, lounge, and an outdoor observation deck to take in the pristine rainforest. Of course, guests will be treated to all-inclusive amenities and five-star cuisine that Uniworld is known for, like unlimited wines and spirits, meals, airport transfers, onboard entertainment, and gratuity.
Excursions are also included and will include getting up close to local wildlife (think sloths and pink dolphins) and visiting local villages. Native born-and-raised naturalist guides will be on board as well to answer all your questions while sailing and trekking through the rainforest.
“Between the four new Super Ships we’re introducing and now a brand-new destination,” said Bettridge. “We’re anticipating that 2020 will be one of our most exciting years yet and that these next-level experiences will continue to elevate the overall Uniworld experience for our guests.”
The new itineraries start at $11,999 per person, and maiden voyages will depart on September 23, 2020.
