Aqua Expeditions: among the TOP 10 river cruises in the world!


After two years of troubles, travel is finally back in full swing! So also Aqua Expeditions, the company considered among the best in the world for river cruises and on the waters of pristine natural paradises, resumes welcoming passengers on board its first-class ships with an elegant and contemporary design.

In this short article, I focus on 3 DESTINATIONS, one more fascinating than the other


Aqua Blu will resume operations in Indonesia, for groups and charters, starting April 30, 2022, offering 7-night trips from Bali to the Komodo National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For individual travelers, they will resume on June 4, 2022

Komodo National Park covers includes three main islands - Komodo, Padar and Rinca - and 26 smaller islets. Many of these are inhabited by prehistoric creatures, such as the native Komodo dragon, which are the largest lizard species to walk the Earth.

STRONG POINT: set sail for an adventurous cruise through the extraordinarily beautiful scenery of the pristine seas of Indonesia and the coastal landscapes among the most spectacular on Earth, created by volcanic activity.

THE VESSEL: inside the five-deck, 15-suite Aqua Blu, designer Cor has tastefully paired a brass and ivory interior theme with generous and eye-catching indoor and outdoor social spaces, including a sundeck.



3, 4 and 7 nights Cambodia and Vietnam cruises aboard Aqua Mekong will begin September 2, 2022 for individual travelers, groups and charters. this is one of the few cultural destinations on Earth that’s best explored on a river voyage.

STRONG POINT: The opportunity to discover rich heritage and traditions enriched by 2,000 years of human history is what makes the Mekong river cruise one of Asia’s most epic and worthwhile journeys on water.

THE VESSEL: Aqua Mekong showcases the modern architecture and interiors of renowned architect Noor Design. The 20 spacious air-conditioned suites feature full-length windows offering spectacular views of the ever-changing Mekong scenery.



This cruise takes guests to the depths of the Peruvian Amazon in the comfort of luxury. A cruise on the Amazon River is perhaps the most rewarding nature expedition in the world. Traveling through the largest rainforest on Earth, you are introduced to Mother Nature's cradle of life, which covers approximately 40% of South America in nine countries.

STRONG POINT: the cruise includes the cuisine of Pedro Miguel Schiaffino, one of the best chefs in Peru. Every day, expert naturalist guides lead small-group hikes that reward guests with up-close encounters with wildlife in the world's most biodiverse rainforest.

THE VESSEL Aqua Nera's 20 spacious Design Suites convey a sense of Amazonian tranquility, while the social spaces display refined elegance. Accents and details from the rubber boom era and the colorful cultures of Portugal, Spain and Peru are tastefully intertwined in the design.
