Review of Amazon Discovery

The 169-foot Amazon Discovery cruise ship (aka "Delfin III") was custom-built to suit the Amazon River environment while maintaining its top-luxury riverboat integrity. The boat provides an extraordinary level of style and can accommodate a maximum of 43 passengers in four different suite categories (each with floor-ceiling windows). Cruising along Amazon River offers enjoying views of the rainforest full of natural beauty and wildlife. This luxury river cruiser is the perfect size for the Amazon, providing an extremely comfortable lounge, sleeping accommodations, outdoor plunge pool, spa, gym, open-seating dining room.
