5 Best Honeymoon Cruises in Peru
Honeymoons are meant to to be a once in a life time experience, celebrating the love and union between two people. It’s the time newlyweds can sit back, relax, and enjoy a nice glass of wine together, away from the pre-wedding madness. They are meant to be unique, romantic, restful, yet adventurous. If you are wanting a memorable honeymoon, away from the typical tourist beaten paths, consider taking a luxury all-inclusive honeymoon cruise on the Amazon river.
Breathtaking jungle sceneries, wild adventures, mouth-watering Amazonian gourmet dining and relaxing starry night evenings are what make up the formula for an unforgettable honeymoon.
Rainforest Cruises has selected the 5 Best Honeymoon Cruises in Peru:
1. Delfin I Amazon Cruise
The Delfin I Amazon cruise in Peru is the definition of luxury boutique cruising on the Amazon river. There are only 4-suites on board, making your journey intimate and personalised– not a detail will be overlooked. The Delfin cruise itineraries take you deep into the remote Pacaya Samiria National Reserve– the largest protected wetland in the world filled with breathtaking jungle scenery and a biodiversity of wildlife. Here you’ll get to explore the canopies of the jungle, while observing amazon wildlife: pink river dolphins, three-toed sloths, monkeys, caiman, and more. If you are lucky, you’ll spot a jaguar! If you can get yourself to leave your luxurious cabin in the morning, stand-up paddle boarding in the Amazon is the perfect morning workout (exclusive to the Delfin I).
2. Delfin II Amazon Cruise
A little larger than its sister riverboat, the Delfin II has 14 luxury cabins on board. Four of the master suites have an impressive 180 degree panoramic view. The Delfin prides itself on its cuisine; the menu is designed by world-class chefs, using traditional Amazonian recipes and locally-sourced ingredients. Newlyweds will enjoy a complimentary bottle of champagne or wine after their delicious, gourmet meal. The cruise itinerary is similar to the Delfin I, taking honeymooners into the remote Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, for optimal wildlife sightings. Unlike the Delfin I, the Delfin II has a gym and luxury spa on board to massage away the pre-wedding stress.
3. Amazon Discovery Cruise
A new luxury honeymoon cruise option that is setting sail late 2015, is the Amazon Discovery, a tastefully appointed river cruise vessel with 5-star comforts and services on board. It is arguably the most luxurious riverboat in the Peruvian Amazon, with it’s Amazonian master suite at 597 sq. ft. with a 180 degree panaramic wrap around window, private butler service, a pillow menu, a complimentary 1-hour spa session and more luxury 5-star services. The cruise itinerary includes swimming with Pink River Dolphins in the Tahuaya River, jungle trekking on the shores of the Yarapa River, visiting the local San Francisco village to get to know the locals (includes visiting a local shamanic healing clinic), cruising into the remote, wildlife-rich Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, observing the Amazonian monkeys on Monkey Island, and more!
4. Zafiro Amazon Cruise
The Zafiro Amazon Cruise is another new stylish riverboat that cruises into Peru’s Pacaya Samiria Reserve. With 4-Day and 5-Day itineraries, those on a tighter timeframe can enjoy an authentic Amazonian experience exploring the Amazon, Ucayali, and Yanallpa Rivers. On guided jungle walks, honeymooners will learn about medicinal plants, fruit trees, Amazonian insects, snakes, birds, monkeys and more. While the waterway skiff excursions are where grey and pink freshwater dolphins swim and play around the boats. An exciting honeymoon activity is the Amazonian food cooking class in a native home with a Zafiro naturalist guide as an interpreter. Newlyweds learn first-hand about Amazon cuisine and obviously get to taste it too!
5. Aqua Expeditions Amazon Cruise
The Aqua and Aria Amazon cruises are pioneer riverboats. The 130-foot-long, Aqua Amazon was the first luxury cruise ship to sail in the northern Amazon river in Peru. Both river boats have a striking contemporary design, spoiling guests with oversized suites with panoramic windows, 5-star service, delicious Amazonian cuisine and an overall authentic Amazon jungle experience. Transport yourself to a new remote natural world, by water and by foot. The daily jungle excursions include: piranha fishing in the Yarapa River, exploring the Nauta Caño, which is part of the Pacaya Samiria Reserve, where toucans, macaws, three-toed sloths, monkeys, and iguanas, among other species can be found. Visit a local Amazon village along the Maranon River, there you can meet and interact with local villagers to learn about the Amazon’s traditions and folklore. The Aqua and Aria Amazon cruises both offer 4-Day and 5-Day itineraries.
