When to Charter an Amazon Cruise

  |   Charter

Amazon riverboat cruises are most definitely for everyone. Whether you are looking for a unique corporate retreat or an out-of-the-ordinary wedding destination that is worlds away from home, chartering an Amazon riverboat cruise is the most unique way to celebrate your special event with friends, family and colleagues. 

Rainforest Cruises' luxurious  riverboats are the height of comfort, sophistication and relaxation, and float effortlessly through the heart of the Amazon Rainforest. Prices start at just $145 a day, and by chartering a cruise boat you won't have to do any work. With expert crews, guides and cooks you can just sit back, relax and take in the incredible Amazon landscape from the comfortable decks and cabins. Here are some ideas about when to charter an Amazon cruise through the Amazon Rainforest: 


1. Corporate Retreats

Rainforest Cruises offers some of the most luxurious riverboats in the Amazon. Cabins have spectacular views of the Amazon Rainforest through their large bright windows, air conditioning, and hot water, which means your staff will have all of the comforts of a five-star hotel in the middle of the Amazon. 

There are lots of new things to try on an Amazon riverboat cruise, and what better way to bond with your co-workers than on a trek through the Amazon jungle or by tasting new and exciting Amazonian food? By trying something new together, staff will get to know one-another in this relaxed, yet exciting environment.

Our riverboats also have stunning communal lounge areas where guests can relax in the evenings, and catch up on all of the amazing wildlife, flora and fauna they have seen. 

The Amazon is one of the most bio-diverse places in the world, and so arguably one of the best places in the world to be inspired. In this tranquil setting, workers will have time to think about their next step, or not think about work at all. An Amazon riverboat cruise is a truly unique retreat for your company. 


2. Weddings

An Amazon riverboat cruise is the perfect setting for a romantic and beautiful wedding. Where could be more special to tie the knot than in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest

With luxurious cabins for guests and special suites for the happy couple, make your wedding one you and your guests will never forget. Our chartered boats are fully staffed with crew, cooks and guides to ensure your day goes without a hitch. While the lounge areas can be used to dance the night away at the end of that special day.

What's more, Rainforest Cruises offer third bed or bunkbed options for those family members with kids, and some riverboats have connecting cabins to make it even safer to travel with young children. 

Amazon riverboats are very safe, each one goes through rigorous checks and has safety and contingency measures in place. What's also great about this option for your big event, is that there is no wifi! Kids will have to sit down and chat with family members like the good old days!


4. Holiday Getaway

Why not try something new this year and spend Christmas, New Year, Thanksgiving or any other holiday aboard one of our luxury charter cruises? Take the pressure off the turkey, grab your presents and make a comfortable and idyllic riverboat your home for the holidays.

Instead of spending your holidays watching TV, with Amazon River Cruises you can take a trek through the Amazon jungle and enjoy a holiday adventure you and your family will never forget.
