Uniworld River Cruises announced the launch of new Peruvian Amazon River itineraries in 2020. The cruises will be on the Aria Amazon houseboat, with the Uniworld boat charter starting in September 2020, on which passengers will be joined by local tour guides.

One of the itineraries (15-day "Peruvian Amazon and Machu Picchu Exploration") features a land stay in a 5-star hotel in Lima Peru, while the 7-night itinerary is through the Amazon rainforest and visits Cusco and Machu Picchu.

An 11-day "Peruvian Rivers and Rainforest Discovery" voyage visits Iquitos and features cruising through Pacaya–Samiria National Reserve (Amazonian jungle in northeastern Peru).
