Luxurious M/V Cattleya Riverboat Providing the Ultimate in Amazon Cruises in Peru
April 23, 2014
Named after a genus of orchid on account of its beauty, the eight-passenger boutique vessel is due to offer intimate and luxurious cruises to the remote and little visited Pacaya-Samiria Reserve in the Loreto region of the Peruvian Amazon.
Specially designed to be sleeker and have a smaller engine than other vessels in the region, the Cattleya will have the ability to quietly navigate further along the narrow tributaries and channels of the Amazon River, increasing the chance of passengers spotting illusive wildlife and allowing for a more peaceful and comfortable journey.
Her four suites, stylishly decorated with king-size beds and covered with sheets made of the finest linens and luxury bathrobes, award guests a five-star feel. Suite amenities include minibars, en-suite bathrooms - equipped with relaxing hot showers, ideal after jungle trekking - and air-conditioning to keep guests refreshingly cool in the Amazonian humidity.
The journey is guaranteed to be personalized and intimate as locally trained, bilingual guides with years of experience lead upscale itineraries and escort guests on daily excursions, helping to spot wildlife and teach about the wonders of the Amazon. Back onboard, guests will indulge in fine dining as a talented chef serves freshly prepared gourmet dishes made from exotic local ingredients, accompanied by delectable house wines, all included in the price.
Four and five-day itineraries offer incredible wildlife spotting opportunities, not only visiting the remote Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve - the largest protected wetland reserve in the world and one of the areas of highest bio-diversity, but also visiting a tree-top canopy walkway, giving passengers a unique, almost birds-eye view of the jungle. Guests can expect to see the perpetually smiling and inquisitive pink river dolphins come face to face with an indigenous tribe, and take part in a fascinating shamanic ceremony.
An added extra is the chance to have a go at Amazon cookery classes, not to mention learn some lingo with free Spanish lessons. The cruises are a great option for both single travelers, having a low single supplement at 25%, and children, as each cabin has a roller-bed and discounts of 25% apply to those younger than 13. A minimum age of eight is recommended.
To celebrate her launch, Rainforest Cruises is offering special discounts on all four or five-day Cattleya cruises in 2014, with savings of up to $600 per person. Bookings must be made before July 1, 2014 and are subject to availability.
The four and five day 2014 Cattleya cruises with discount now cost $1,799 and $2,299 respectively.
