Description

Our riverboat is truly an Amazon Star, offering a new way to navigate the mysteries of the Amazon. Imagine stargazing from our purpose-built Observation Deck, the largest of any boat on the Amazon, learning about the stars of the Southern constellations or chatting about local folklore. After drifting down narrow tributaries aboard our sturdy excursion boats or hiking through thick jungle, relax in the enhanced Lecture Room. Each night, guides hold discussions on history, geography and wildlife in air-conditioned comfort. Evening receptions include not only a complimentary Peruvian cocktail, wine, beer or soda but a chance to mingle and socialize before enjoying live entertainment from the crew. Plus, this is the only riverboat in the Peruvian Amazon to offer satellite internet service for guests!

Modern Comfort in the Wild

Amazon Star is designed to offer you an unprecedented personal experience in this untamed frontier. Spacious, air-conditioned cabins — each approximately 220 sq. ft. — feature floor-to-ceiling windows and private balconies, so you are constantly surrounded by rainforest vistas. Cabin interiors feature furniture hand-crafted by Peruvian artisans, plush linens and roomy private baths.

UNWIND with a cup of Peruvian coffee on your cabin’s private balcony — ideal for staying surrounded by the symphony of tree frogs and birdlife while contemplating your day. A covered, open-air bar stocks bottled water, sodas, wine, local beer and your favorite cocktails. Cushy seating and overhead fans make this an ideal place to relax or chat with your guides and fellow passengers.

EXPLORE expedition-style aboard spacious, comfortable excursion boats or try IE’s Hobie kayaks for up-close encounters with jungle wildlife and the winding waterways.

SAMPLE local delicacies and international favorites — including fresh fruits and vegetables purchased along the river. Large windows in the Dining Room mean you’ll never miss a dramatic sunset.
