Cruise Aboard The Iberostar Grand Amazon
This was our first cruise [Iberostar Grand Amazon Cruise]. It was excellent. The experience was very memorable.
The daily tours took place on time and met our expectations. Our guide Conrado ensured we understood all the sights we were seeing. On the first tour there were 14 English speaking guests. On the second tour there were 4 English speakers. Quite a few travellers did speak English as a second language.
My wife and I attended the daily lectures – they were very interesting and informative but poorly attended. The accommodations were good. The restaurant service was good. We enjoyed the grill on the upper deck and found the food to be good.
One problem beyond your control and a possible reason for lack of English speakers is the difficult plane connections to get to Manaus. This is unfortunate since many people are missing out on a great opportunity. The tour was totally booked.
Thanks for all your assistance in the trip including suggesting the hotel, travel agent and securing of a visa.
