This February Delfin Amazon Cruises re-launched its renovated, 28-passenger Delfin II Amazon vessel. Owner Lissy Urteaga oversaw the remodeling and design of the new additions to the Delfin II, which include a lecture room, massage and exercise room, as well as various new amenities, all customized to maximize guest comfort during their luxury Amazon cruise expedition.
Delfin II Amazon Upgrades
Delfin Amazon Cruises offers trips along the Ucayali tributary of the Amazon River, which runs through the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve in the Amazon Rainforest. The operator offers two luxury cruise vessels, the Delfin I and the Delfin II.
Aracari has visited both ships a number of times: in 2012 Marisol (Aracari’s founder) went on a 4 day, 3 night cruise on the renovated Delfin I, and she first traveled on the Delfin II during its maiden voyage in 2009. We adore the Delfin ships and feel that they wonderfully reflect the Amazon rainforest in their details and decorations, making this an ideal way to experience the rainforest in luxury.
So what’s new? The Delfin II’s new lecture room, situated on the Upper Deck, is now equipped with a projector for presentations, a computer, new lounge areas and air conditioning. There are also hand-made game tables for use during leisure time. The lecture room has been modeled after the same casual elegance and incorporation of natural elements characteristic of the Delfin vessels and will offer guests a space to socialize, relax during briefings and share photos and videos during the cruise.
The massage and exercise room have been designed with windows that provide panoramic views of the changing scenery during the cruise, creating ideal settings for guests to unwind during a massage or while exercising on the gym equipment.
Our friends at Delfin are pleased to offer these new facilities for guests aboard the Delfin II, which have added to the comfort, style and luxury of the cruise vessel. They also took the opportunity to undertake a new photoshoot.
