For a luxury cruise, complete with plenty of pampering, soft adventure, and the beautiful landscapes of remote rainforest locations, look no further than the Delfin III. The 170-foot ship features 22 generously sized staterooms and welcomes up to 44 passengers. Your Relais Chateaux Delfin III Amazon cruise departs from Nauta on four and five-day routes.
Life Aboard The Delfin III
The Delfin III invites you to experience five-star luxury within the ecological paradise of the Amazon. The sun deck, on the upper deck, is the heart and soul of the ship. It will instantly become your go-to spot for sipping Peruvian coffee while listening to the jungle wake for the day and cooling off in the plunge pool.
When you are ready for some fun out of the sun, scoot over to the air-conditioned lounge. Sip a pisco sour at the bar while staring out the floor-to-ceiling windows, and come back later to participate in a Peruvian cooking class or a cultural performance. A visit to the spa for a massage, soothing avocado wrap, or coffee-cacao scrub is sure to delight.
No luxury holiday is complete without fine dining, and the Delfin III delivers. Feast on dishes created with roasted meats, tropical fruits, and fresh fish. Even with so many things happening aboard the ship, you may be tempted to pass hours away in your stateroom. Every room is impressively-sized and features panoramic windows, but the Owner’s Suites are standouts at 600-square-feet.
Excursions From Your Delfin III Cruise
Despite the highest levels of comfort available onboard, the magic of the Amazon will tempt you off of the boat for a wide range of optional excursions. All Delfin III Amazon cruises depart from Nauta and explore the Marañon and Ucayali Rivers in the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve on routes that vary depending on water levels. On the Nauta Caño Creek, search for silver-back tamarillo monkeys and sloths.
Disembark at Amazon National Park for a nature walk and naturist-led discussion of the rainforest’s medicinal plants. Visit with a local Shaman to learn about the local healing and spiritual traditions. There may also be opportunities to swim with dolphins, fish for piranhas at sunset, and kayak down calm creeks.
Supporting Local Economies With Beautiful Furnishings
While aboard the Delfin III, you will be surrounded by Peruvian artwork, décor, and furnishings. Handmade Peruvian textiles provide pops of color against the neutral hues of the ship. Ancient tools showcase the history of the region. Local craftwork, including hand-carved furniture and woven palm-leaf ceilings, creates a feeling of oneness with the rainforest. Staterooms and social areas are decorated with original contemporary art from the nation’s top artists and local villages.
This focus on local art, crafts, and history adds authenticity and beauty to the ship while also supporting local economies. And, if you fall in love with a piece of art and want a one-of-a-kind memory of your cruise aboard Delfin III, many of the items are available for purchase through the ship’s boutique.
The natural beauty and rich biodiversity of the Amazon rainforest are perfectly complemented by the sustainable hardwoods and comfortable luxury of the Delfin III. Appealing to a wide range of travelers, the Delfin III is waiting to welcome you aboard.
