Aqua Expeditions unveils 3 New Cruise Destinations and 2 Fleet Additions
Aqua Expeditions is excited to announce three all-new cruise destinations in East Indonesia and doubling its fleet with the addition of Aqua Blu and Aqua Nera.
Aqua Blu: A Series of Firsts for Aqua Expeditions
Aqua Blu is Aqua Expeditions’ first coastal ship, and the first-ever long-range explorer yacht with year-round departures to be permanently based in East Indonesia—the heart of the Coral Triangle and the fabled Old World spice trade route.
To begin service on 16 November 2019, the 15-suite Aqua Blu (link to Fact Sheet) will serve three destinations on 7- and 12-night coastal cruise itineraries:
Raja Ampat (Round-trip; December through to February)
Bali-Komodo National Park (Bi-directional; April to September)
Ambon & Spice Islands (Round-trip; October to November)
Aqua Nera: Elevating Luxury Cruising in the Amazon
Designed and built to become the most state-of-the-art river boat to sail the Amazon, Aqua Nera will present guests with a luxuriously-appointed interior inspired by her surroundings: the blackwater lagoons and tributaries of the Amazon river and Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve.
Aqua Nera’s 20 spacious river-facing suites will convey a welcoming and stylish sense of Amazonian tranquillity. Aqua Nera will also feature comprehensive amenities including an indoor lounge and bar, as well as a river-facing infinity plunge pool and gym.
Aqua Expeditions’ partnership with award-winning Peruvian chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino will continue on board the Aqua Nera (link to Fact Sheet). The vessel will offer 3-, 4- and 7-night itineraries on the Peruvian Amazon alongside the Aria Amazon river cruise ship.
