Review of Delfin II
The small cruise ship Delfin II travels on tributaries leading out of Amazon Basin in Peru. This extraordinary vessel is designed so that passengers are embraced by rain forest views. Delfin II is owned by Delfin Amazon Cruises, a cruise ship company established by Peruvians Aldo Macchiavello and his partner and wife, Lissy Urteaga, in 2006. Aldo runs the firm, while Lissy, who is an interior designer, takes responsibility for the elegant decor inside the ship, plans the daily itineraries, and makes long-range meal plans, along with the chef.
The top deck of the 30-passenger luxury vessel was installed in 2014, and provides an air-conditioned lecture room with picture windows on three sides, massage room, exercise room and an open-air observation lounge with its own bar and cushioned chairs. The open-air spaces reveal the scent of the rain forest with the smell of rain, the music of the night creatures and ever-changing scenery.
While oceangoing ships that travel across Brazilian Amazon feature myriad amenities, the emphasis on Delfin II is on exploring the ecosystem of the 8,000-sq.mile Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. Delfin II offers 4- or 5-day cruises that are the time to contemplate scenery and rich array of mammals, amphibians, reptiles and birds found here. The vessel has no TV, telephone, Internet, nightclub entertainment nor 24-hour drink and food service.
