The Short Version: Delfin Amazon Cruises takes couples to the heart of Peru’s Amazon Rainforest and surrounds them with breathtaking scenery. The luxury travel company provides the ultimate dating adventure from the jungle excursions to the gourmet meals. Couples can book a suite with Delfin Amazon Cruises to upgrade their honeymoon or vacation and have a memorable experience exploring the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, the largest protected area in Peru, located in the Upper Peruvian Amazon.

Delfin Amazon Cruises launched in early 2006 to give sophisticated travelers a chance to explore Peru in style. The vessels feature luxury suites, beautiful dining rooms, and panoramic views of the untamed jungle.

The Founder and CEO, Aldo Macchiavello, conceived of the idea for Delfin Amazon alongside his wife Lissy Urteaga. The Peruvian couple made sure to add many romantic touches for guests celebrating important milestones in their relationships.

Delfin Amazon Cruises began as the passion project of a married couple in Peru.

Aldo envisioned Delfin Amazon Cruises as a sustainable and responsible travel company. He has promoted unique cruises that showcase the beauty of the jungle and give back to local communities. The Delfin Amazon Cruises team works in partnership with artists and nature guides in Peruvian river villages.

Lissy drew from her background in interior design to ensure the accommodations on the Delfin I, II, and III have the look and feel of a luxury vacation home.

Delfin Amazon Cruises has the distinction of being the first Relais & Chateaux Cruise in the world, and it has brought a lot of couples to exotic locations off the beaten path.

“Our vessels thrive in splendid harmony with nature and its spectacular surroundings,” the Delfin Amazon Cruises team said. “And our guests appreciate the noncruise atmosphere and the sense that you are on board to explore one of the world’s most intriguing environments.”

Guests Enjoy Spacious Accommodations & Jungle Activities

The Amazon rainforest is the world’s largest tropical rainforest, so it’s high on the bucket list for many couples and families planning international trips. Whether you’re a newlywed or a retiree, you can make the most of your Peruvian excursion by booking a luxury room on one of the three luxury vessels run by Delfin Amazon Cruises.

The Master Suites feature floor-to-ceiling windows and a private deck that offer the best views of blue skies, calm waters, and lush rainforests. Some honeymoon suites even have a private fresh water plunge pool where couples can enjoy a date night under the stars.

The cruise ships provide oversized suites and romantic views to help couples relax.

Guests come from the U.S., the U.K., Australia, and all over the world to take an excursion with Delfin Amazon Cruises. The travel company offers a unique opportunity to see the jungle sights while enjoying world-class cuisine and five-star accomodations.

Delfin Amazon Cruises has an eclectic menu of gourmet food, including locally sourced fruits, vegetables, and proteins. The chefs take pride in featuring authentic Peruvian dishes and flavors. Their culinary creativity makes all meal times a special experience.

On board the Delfin I, honeymooning couples have the option to enjoy a dinner date in their room and savor the tastes of Peru in privacy. The vessel boasts four oversized suites with private terraces, two of them with a private plunge pool — which is definitely the most luxe offer in the Amazon Basin — and it’s a perfect scenario for couples looking for the most memorable experience.

Delfin Amazon Cruises comes with a full itinerary of cultural and nature experiences to occupy guests throughout the day.

“One thing’s for sure, on your adventurous jungle honeymoon, you won’t be getting bored,” the Delfin Amazon Cruises team promised. “From dawn until dusk, you have the option of participating in various Amazon jungle excursions.”

The jungle excursions are optional, but many couples jump at the chance to go on a date in the rainforest or on the water. The activities range from fishing to hiking, and the guides always keep an eye out for wildlife sightings.

Crewed by Knowledgeable Peruvian Skippers & Guides

The crew of the Delfin l, Delfin ll and Delfin lll make the cruise experience truly remarkable. Every guide, skipper, chef, and crew member does their utmost to elevate the vacation experience and provide everything guests need to enjoy themselves.

For instance, the guides have extensive knowledge about Peruvian wildlife, and they can often spot the signs that anacondas, hawks, monkeys, or other animals are nearby. They cannot guarantee a wildlife sighting on every excursion, of course, but they keep eyes and ears peeled to make sure guests don’t miss anything that goes on in the jungle.

Experienced nature guides can introduce visitors to the rich culture of Peru.

“Our crew grew up in the jungle,” the team said. “Now they get to be hosts and show the world what the jungle really is, from the culture to food to people and the biodiversity.”

Peru is full of interesting sights and welcoming people, and Delfin Amazon Cruises endeavors to showcase it all.

Couples can go on an eye-opening date to an Amazonian village and see the customs, learn the language, and immerse themselves in the culture of the area.

Delfin Amazon Cruises has two central missions. The first is to encourage travelers to fall in love with Peru, and the second is to support local communities to be more self-sustainable and prosperous.

The travel company features the handicrafts of local villagers on its ships, and it also takes guests to villages where they can buy handmade souvenirs from the villagers themselves. This initiative began with four village women in 2006, and now it has expanded to over four villages.

Travel restrictions due to COVID-19 have hurt this local market, but Delfin Amazon Cruises has set up a GoFundMe campaign to continue supporting families that depend on tourism revenue.

A Memorable Way to Celebrate a Honeymoon or Anniversary

As an upscale travel company, Delfin Amazon Cruises can offer a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Amazon Rainforest. Over the years, many dating and married couples have gotten on board and become fans of this world-class cruise.

“Delfin Amazon Cruises take you deep into the Amazon Rainforest, and it will change your life,” said Douglas in a TripAdvisor review. “The highlights of the trip are the guides. Having a great guide is most probably the most important factor to consider when going to the Amazon.”

Lara Oltz-Green chose Delfin Amazon Cruises for her honeymoon trip because it met her standards for a luxury adventure. “I like to call our honeymoon sauciness an adrenaline rush with a dash of pampering and an excellent view,” she said. “The Delfin provided this to the utmost prestige.”

Guests can plan their days around exploration or relaxation. Outgoing couples can put on their hiking boots to explore nature trails or local villages, while more laid-back couples can get a massage, read on the deck, or stay in bed enjoying their view of the Amazon River.

“The top deck and lounge and bar in the cruise is an amazing place to chill with amazing views,” said one couple who stayed on the Delfin III for three nights. “The days are action-packed with lots of activities such as skiff exploration, jungle walk, piranha fishing, and kayaking.”

The Delfin team takes pride in providing unique travel experiences that create unforgettable memories for people from all walks of life. The team’s spokesperson said, “Every person who lives the Delfin Experience is part of our family now, and we feel proud to share part of our amazing culture.”

Delfin Amazon Cruises Offers an Exotic Tour Unlike Any Other

Booking a trip with Delfin Amazon Cruises is a great way to explore the rainforest and vacation in style. The spacious accommodations and amenities allow couples to live in the lap of luxury, and the knowledgeable guides plan excursions to give them a glimpse of Peruvian wildlife and culture.

Since 2006, Aldo and Lissy have made it their mission to change the way travelers see Peru and unlock a world of wonder to couples, friends, and family members seeking a special experience in the Amazon Rainforest.

“When authenticity matters more than the ordinary, experience the Amazon Rainforest in style because we have taken personalized boutique travel and services one step beyond the expected,” Aldo said. “Once you travel with us, your perspective will change forever.”
