Amazon Dream Review

Review of Amazon Dream

RV Amazon Dream cruise ship is a traditional Brazilian Amazon riverboat owned by Amazon Dream Cruises and was for 2 years (2018-2019) chartered by Pandaw Cruises. The boat is operated with fly-cruise deals inclusive of domestic flights (to/from Santarem / homeport) from Belem or Manaus.

The Burma-based company Pandaw Cruises (formerly "Irrawaddy Flotilla Company") operated Amazon Dream as a "partner ship", advertising the riverboat as providing "a slightly lower standard than Pandaw".

The cruise ship's 9 cabins are well-fitted and spacious. Onboard guides are enthusiastic and highly knowledgeable. The boat's chef is a great master at turning out excellent meals based on local recipes and ingredients. The barman knows all cocktails that can be prepared from the rich variety of Amazon fruits.

Cruise itineraries of 5, 6 or 10 days (as well as special 7-day "New Year's" departures) have been refined since the ship's launch in 2007. On each of these voyages is offered a unique "travel vacation" mix of local contact, natural history and relaxation in a Brazilian jungle region that is less often visited around Santarem, but bursting with flora and fauna.

Note: You can see the CruiseMapper's list of all river cruise ships and riverboats in the "itinerary" section of our River Cruises hub. All companies and their fleets are listed there.
