There is no more rewarding journey into nature than one along the Amazon River.

By journeying into earth's largest rainforest you will have the opportunity to uncover majestic landscapes, indigenous wildlife and incredible cultures that have remained hidden from the wider world for millennia and are only accessible on a boat.

You will undertake this awe-inspiring journey aboard Aqua Nera, a ship setting a new standard for luxury river cruising on the Amazon. The design of Aqua Nera is inspired by the Amazon’s idyllic backwater lagoons and conveys a sense of contemporary style and Amazonian tranquillity in every suite, deck and social space.
