For Luxury: The Zafiro Amazon cruise in Peru is a luxury best-selling Amazon cruise. Passengers experience an exciting itinerary in the jungle, and onboard they are surrounded by highly-trained expert guides, hospitality and attention to detail. Rainforest Cruises is currently offering 10% discount plus Free Domestic Flights in Peru on select cruise departures. This means anywhere from $500-$875 in savings per person, depending on the itinerary and cabin type.

For Comfort: The recently renovated Perla Amazon cruise offers a comfortable and exciting cruise to the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve in the Peruvian Amazon. Rainforest Cruises is offering 10% off on select cruise departures for 2019. This is up to $187 in savings, per person.

For Couples: The Aria Amazon cruise is a Peruvian luxury expedition vessel generally considered the best in its class. Guests will enjoy state-of-the-art accommodation, local gourmet cuisine by renowned chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino and world class guided excursions. Highlights include: jungle treks through the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve, kayaking, biking, fishing excursions and community visits. The Treehouse Lodge offers guests a once-in-a-lifetime experience of sleeping up high in the jungle canopy, up to 64 feet off the ground, in one of eleven uniquely designed bungalows. Highlights include: rising each morning to the sounds of the Amazon, enjoying breakfast with pink river dolphins, swimming in the Amazon river and a nocturnal wildlife cruise. 

For Families: The Delfin III Amazon cruise is one of Peru’s most luxurious riverboats that’s fit for families. The 22-suite ship has five-star features including a spa, plunge pool and gourmet dining, yet it is small enough to reach deep into the tributaries of Peru’s Amazon. Four-day and seven-day cruises visit Peru’s largest wildlife reserve, the Pacaya Samiria, home to monkeys, pink dolphins and three-toed sloths. On-board naturalists lead skiff-excursions including a visit to the very start of the Amazon River. There are on-land tours through the jungle with a chance to visit local communities.
