THE LUXURY: Deep in the heart of the upper Amazon, two luxury vessels provide a glimpse into some of natures most isolated regions. Cruises begin in Nauta, Peru with a brief introduction by experienced guides that educate guests about exotic wildlife including macaws, monkeys, parrots, iguanas, and other rare species that can be viewed during the cruise. Voyages also include visits to native villages, canoeing in a remote lagoon, opportunities to swim with pink river dolphins, fishing, daytime hiking, and night safaris in the rain forest. On board, guests can enjoy Amazonian-Peruvian cuisine and live on board entertainment during the evenings.
Each vessel features wood-panel suites that are fitted with orthopedic mattresses and eco-friendly toiletries. The Delfin I is just finishing a refurbishment, and will now offer an open aired-terrace, and just four elegant suites with elongated private balconies, floor-to-ceiling windows, mini bars, and a Jacuzzi in each of the two premium suites.
THE VALUE: Experience the Amazon from February through April on a four-night journey aboard either the Delfin I or Delfin II and save 30 percent off rack rates, plus receive a free cabin upgrade! This offer is only available to Shermans Travel readers until cabins are full. Prior to the discount, prices start at $2,602 for a suite on the Delfin II, or $3,400 for a deluxe suite on the Delfin I (so you can save $760 to $1,020 per person with the 30 percent discount). Free upgrades to a deluxe suite (on Delfin II), and deluxe master suite (on Delfin I) will add an additional $353 to $400 off per person.
THE CATCH: Activities and routes may vary depending on season.
