View from Water: Aria 5-Day Amazon Cruise
| Aria Amazon
The trip was great! The cruise on the Amazon [Aria Amazon 5-Day] was the best part ... Everything about it was as advertised or better. Everything went smoothly and we saw a ton - they told me that we saw a total of 500 miles of the Amazon or its branches. We had two small-boat excursions per day and time to rest in between.
The food was at a very high level, most of it almost gourmet.
There was no significant motion on board, so I was never sea sick. It's true that the ship often motors all night and you can hear that, but I had no trouble sleeping in cabin 106.
I appreciated the international mix of passengers, including from Moscow, Vienna, Columbia, Paris, and the US.
We had good weather during our excursions - only one was rained out, and even then, it was interesting.
It was great to have airport pick-ups in Lima and Iquitos."
