The 14-cabin luxury riverboat, Delfin II, seduces travelers with its comfortable, contemporary style and 5-star Relais Chateaux service – indeed it and its sister ships are the only vessels in the Amazon with this accreditation of excellence. Departing from the port of Nauta, deep in the Peruvian Amazon, immerse yourself in the vessel’s casual sophistication and embark on a truly exemplary expedition cruise along the Amazon River.
Life Aboard The Delfin II
The Delfin II invites the outdoors in, thanks to the panoramic windows in every room. Light, airy spaces, with soft wood tones and neutral hues, feel chic and let you enjoy picturesque views from every angle. While onboard, you are invited to relax, unwind and watch as the Amazon slips past the windows. Snuggle into a plush couch to read or play a board game in the lecture room. You will return to this space for informative presentations from the ships’ naturist guides to help you understand the area’s wildlife and cultures.
Quench your thirst with a local beer or craft cocktail in the third deck’s open-air lounge. There, the bartender is always ready to serve, and the room encourages refreshing breezes to flow through. In the spa, massages, and therapies highlight the wellness philosophies of the local cultures. If you are looking for a more active pastime, use the onboard kayaks and paddle boards, or head to the exercise room for some yoga or cardio.
Excursions From Delfin II Cruises
After transferring from Iquitos, you will board the Delfin II in Nauta and set sail for either a four- or five-day cruise that blends downtime aboard the ship with soft adventure activities on the water and on land. While traveling through the wilderness, optional activities led by naturalist guides will encourage you to explore the Marañon and Ucayali Rivers in the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve.
In the Amazon Natural Park, take a nature walk to learn about the area’s medicinal plants. Then, visit the tiny and seldom-visited village of Yachay. This remote outpost is home to Carola, a native Shaman who spends her life serving as a healer and spiritual guide to the village. Spend some time with Carola, and her wood-carver husband, to learn about the ways of life in the Amazon. You will also have the opportunity to visit a local schoolhouse, search for birds and monkeys, and observe river dolphins.
Authentic Cuisine On All Delfin II Amazon Cruises
Peruvian cuisine embodies the country’s cultural diversity, and the team of the Delfin II prides themselves on bringing authentic flavors and carefully prepared Creole dishes to the ships’ dining room. Locally-sourced and wild ingredients infuse the menu with local flair. The experience is enhanced by handmade plate ware, locally-crafted table décor, and live instrumental music courtesy of the ship’s crew. Better yet, you will always enjoy a show along with dinner as you watch pink river dolphins, flocks of birds, and local villagers out of the dining room’s panoramic windows.
The ability to pick and choose activities, and two sets of family-friendly interconnecting rooms make Delfin II cruises a flexible getaway for every generation. Plus, the all-inclusive package allows you to let go of every care and soak in the serenity of the Amazon.
