The Rio Amazonas was
built in the late 1800's in Scotland. After a long career as a
cargo / passenger ship on the Amazon river it was completely
rebuilt in 1981 to enable international travelers to experience
the Amazon in comfort. After being refurbished in 1994 the Rio
Amazonas was designed as an informal exploration vessel carrying
46 passengers in 21 air conditioned cabins on itineraries that
explore the mighty Amazon River, its tributaries and people.
The main deck contains the bar and an air conditioned
dining room. Furthermore the vessel has an
informal library and ample deck area, both covered and open air.
The sun deck has comfortable deck chairs and hammocks for a
leisurely look at life on the river and a Jacuzzi for enjoyment.
All upper deck cabins have a private bath, showers and picture
windows for a fantastic view of the river, two lower beds with
reading lamps, a small writing desk and a chair complete the
cabins' furnishings. One senior "suite" and two junior
"suites" are slightly larger, have private bath / shower, lower
beds, a small closet and a sitting area. There are also two
Family Cabins that will hold up to four persons.
