Aqua Expeditions Announces The Resumption Of Its Amazon Operations And Aqua Nera Launch
With Peruvian borders slowly opening up to regional and international destinations, Aqua Expedition is pleased to announce the resumption of its Peruvian Amazon operations beginning with the first departure of Aria Amazon on December 18th, 2020.
Just in time for the holiday season, guests will be able to reunite, celebrate, or getaway with family and friends across three-, four-, and seven-night itineraries in unparalleled privacy and safety for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in the heart of the Amazon rainforest.
As Aqua Expeditions steers positively into 2021, Aqua Nera, the company’s newest expedition vessel, will launch its much-anticipated inaugural voyage on April 3rd, 2021.
She will grace the mystical Amazon river with unparalleled contemporary luxury and bold design aesthetic. The 20-suite river ship, custom-designed by award-winning Noor Design, built in Vietnam, is currently sailing the full length of the Amazon river to her home port of Iquitos, Peru after an epic 19,866 km journey across the world.
More than ever, health and safety remain Aqua Expeditions’ number one priority for guests and crew alike. On top of strict safety protocols imposed by LATAM Airlines and Lima Airport, any guest traveling with Aqua is required to undergo a pre-boarding health assessment on the day of embarkation, as well as submit a negative COVID-19 test result, issued no later than 72 hours prior to the embarkation of our ships.
Aqua Expeditions is committed to ensuring the safest experience for all onboard, in line with the rigorous anti-viral standards of hygiene and sanitization across each vessel, which comply with health and safety guidelines of the International Safety Management (ISM) and World Health Organization (WHO).
“We are excited to resume our operations and launch our newest ship Aqua Nera after months of travel bans. Our team has used the past months wisely to refine our operations to the highest safety standards, so we will be at our very best to welcome guests back onboard. Aqua Nera is positioned to be an innovative addition on the Amazon river, inspired by the Peruvian black water lagoons, combining refined elegance with contemporary design,” said Francesco Galli Zugaro, Aqua Expeditions’ Founder & CEO.
