Cruise along the incredible Amazon River with a voyage aboard Delfin III (formerly known as Amazon Discovery), which will take you through Ecuador and Peru with itineraries that span from Lima to Quito. Within these adventurous stops, you will get to explore beautiful cities and towns where you can drink in the scenery, absorb the local culture and go on some truly unforgettable adventures. This 169-foot long vessel was designed especially for sailing the Amazonian. Despite this ship’s extreme intimacy, you will continue to discover all the modern amenities of a luxury cruise ship. Delfin III is air-conditioned throughout and features all-suite accommodations. When cruising on this ship, you can expect personalized service, luxurious accommodations, delicious cuisine and incredible itineraries, making for a cruise experience that is a cut above the rest.

Launched in 2015, Delfin III has a maximum capacity of just 44 passengers so you can expect a very personalized cruise with individual attention from the crew to your fellow guests. Avalon Waterways embodies a welcoming spirit on all of their ships and Delfin III is no exception. The staff is ready to help you with anything you need, and since the ship has such a small capacity, your chances of making new friends is much higher than it would be on a larger vessel.

The highlight of any river cruise on Delfin III is its incredible itineraries that will immerse you right in the center of South American culture. One of the biggest benefits of a river cruise is that you can spend the entire day seeing all it has to offer, and then you can wake up and do it all over again in a brand-new city or town. Some of the places to which you can visit with an itinerary on Delfin III includes Lima, Cusco, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Iquitos, and Nauta with an extension into the Galapagos Islands on Treasure of the Galapagos. Every stop offers different paced tours with expert naturalists and many different ways to learn about the South American history and culture in each city. Imagine doing things like exploring the Ollantaytambo ruins, going piranha fishing, and snorkeling with sea turtles in the Galapagos islands. With a Delfin III cruise, all of these things can easily turn into realities.

Another great highlight of cruises aboard Delfin III is the blissful cuisine. Aboard this ship you will discover seasonal Peruvian cuisine prepared with the freshest of local ingredients, sure to keep your taste buds coming back for more. Traditional western dishes are also available if you prefer something a bit more familiar. Complimentary house wine is served with all dinners, along with coffee, tea, mineral water, soft drinks local beer and Pisco-based cocktails.

When you’re not out exploring, you will discover many great amenities onboard Delfin III. The entire ship is air-conditioned and was designed with your comfort in mind. After a long day of tours and sightseeing you can relax in the cozy indoor/outdoor lounge where you can enjoy nightly entertainment and grab a drink from the upscale bar. Some examples of the entertainment available to you are multimedia natural history films, cultural productions, lectures and cooking classes. You may choose to relax in the outdoor plunge pool or Rainforest spa or break a sweat in the exercise room. There is also an outside viewing deck where you can relax and observe wildlife as well as a sun deck with premium lounge chairs and plenty of shade from the sun.

Your dream vacation is just one click or call away. Don’t miss out on the exclusive savings and limited-time deals you’ll get by booking with us. Contact us now to start instantly saving on your next voyage aboard Delfin III.
