The Delfin II is the most gracious and lovely river ship to sail the Amazon. Spacious and crafted of gleaming hardwood, she is both modern and welcoming. Her public spaces are beautifully appointed—with tropical flowers and native handicraft decorative details. Open decks, tropical hammocks perfect for lounging, and huge picture windows in each suite mean the river dramatically unfolds before your eyes.
The covered top deck offers a wonderful cross breeze and panoramic views. Photo talks and daily recaps will be held in the ship’s air-conditioned presentation room, which has large picture windows on three sides. Offering board games, computer stations, and comfortable seating with a contemporary flair, this room is also perfect for relaxing. Visit the small reference library or, to check in with the captain and officers, visit the ship’s bridge.
Equipped for the adventure
The ship’s custom-outfitted 12-person skiffs provide an excellent platform for photography and are small enough to thread through narrow, inviting tributaries in search of diverse birds, river dolphins, and elusive primates. Powerful nighttime scopes allow for exciting evening skiff explorations in search of nocturnal creatures. Our ship is the only one in the region equipped with a fleet of kayaks and paddleboards, providing the rare privilege of intimate, up-close experiences in this magical environment. Weather permitting, you may swim directly from the skiffs using the convenient swim ladder.
The gourmet cuisine served aboard the Delfin II is exceptional for its flavors and provenance. All the food is local, literally grown in the surrounding rain forest by natives who maintain sustainable agricultural practices. The “pillow” chocolates are crafted of local cacao, and freshly squeezed juices and fruits of an amazing variety are offered daily. The sole non–rain forest products used on the ship are the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Meals are served at one seating, and since there is no assigned seating you can mingle as you like, and independent travelers can count on being warmly welcomed at any table.
Spaces to relax and refresh
Your suite, located on the main or upper deck, offers cool air-conditioned comfort, crisp cotton linens, and a minimalist décor designed to soothe, relax, and restore. Open the curtains and giant windows instantly connect you to the lush environs. Your bathroom is stocked with organic sunblock, insect repellent, body lotion, shampoo, and conditioner.
Should you wish to deepen your relaxation, a licensed onboard therapist offers you a choice of treatments—including aromatherapy with a selection of essential oils from the rain forest—from a screened and tranquil corner of the top deck.
With just 28 guests on this luxury Amazon cruise, traveling aboard the Delfin II will foster an exceptional esprit de corps and rewarding new friendships.
