Iberostar 8-Day Amazon Cruise
The trip [Iberostar 8-day] was great! We were lucky enough that the boat was not full so there was all kinds of special attention (though I do believe that the crew is very attentive anyway). The dining room staff were exceptional. Food was very good, no problems there. Nice variety and lots of fresh things, fish in particular.
We have both been on the Amazon before, Fernanda had been in this actual area and I had been on the Peruvian side 3 times. However, we were amazed that there was some difference between the two ends of the river. The Peruvian side did not have sand beaches that I remember and also was not as wide of the river is in the Manaus area. Of course, the meeting of the Rio Negro and the Amazon was truly something to see.
The guides did a terrific job of explaining all of that to us and also on the excursions. There was not a guide who did not do a great job. We particularly like Samuel, English was good and he had such a great spirit and seemed to enjoy what he was doing. Also was good at explaining what we were doing and seeing and had a great rapport with the people in the villages we visited.
All in all, great trip, glad we did it and have to commend your company for a job well done!"
