Zafiro Amazon Cruise

Cruising In Stylish Comfort in Peru's Pacaya-Samiria Reserve

The Zafiro - meaning sapphire, a type of precious stone, in English - is a state-of-the-art luxury Amazon River vessel, that began sailing the Peruvian Amazon in October 2015. 

The sister-ship of the Amatista, passengers can expect the same highly-trained expert guides, hospitality and attention to detail on board, but the difference being her stylish design and modern facilities.

Her 19 spacious suites feature all mod-cons, with air-conditioning, ensuite bathrooms and magnificent views from floor to ceiling windows and for those on the Upper Deck, their private balconies too.

The boat itself has some remarkable standout features, almost too many to name, but include a fully-accessible suite for those with mobility issues, both exercise and massage rooms, and an outdoor Jacuzzi on her rangy Observation Deck, itself equipped with sunloungers and bar lounge. Four of the Lower Deck Suites also interconnect, and the remarkable Zafiro Suite also has a sofa bed suitable for children younger than 12, making the cruise ideal for families.

The Zafiro operates fixed 4, 5 and 8-day departures to the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve - an area unrivaled for wildlife - allowing you to explore deep into the heart of the rainforest. The 8-day departures are a combination of the 5-day and 4-day itineraries in that order.

The itinerary was exactly what we wanted and we felt like we saw and did everything we asked for. We felt very safe and learned so much from each of our excellent guides. This was a trip of a lifetime for us. Thank you so much to the Crew of the Zafiro and Rainforest Cruises for helping us make this happen.

The excursions were all fun and different and we really did get to see quite a bit of variety. The visit to a village was a highlight, meeting several of the villagers and children and we took the advice in your guide to bring school supplies, so we brought notebooks, pencils, erasers and pencil sharpeners so we were a big hit when we passed them out. All in all a wonderful experience and would highly recommend you to anyone.
