As much of the river as on it and locally built, Delfin II’s iron exterior is clad in tropical hardwoods, and her interior gleams with wood floors and lacquered palm ceilings. Wood stairs floating between decks, and lazily turning ceiling fans add the right tropical notes, while the A/C invisibly cools and dehumidifies.
The lounge, center of our life as an expedition community, features a welcoming open bar and inviting seating. The dining room is decorated with locally crafted lanterns, hanging over an impressive central buffet table, carved from a massive tree root found floating in the river and installed before the ship’s windows were—three walls of windows keep us connected to the non-stop panorama outside. In fact, the prestigious Relais & Châteaux recently inducted the ship into its hotel group, recognizing its commitment to local nature, culture, and its exquisite Amazonian-Peruvian cuisine.
The cabins are airy and supremely comfortable—the perfect place to end to active days. Slip into bed, well-appointed with crisp, cotton linens, and drift off as you gaze out at the starry night through the generous, river-framing window wall. Our base for daily explorations, and to which we happily return, Delfin II has a distinct advantage over any land-based camp—she moves, giving you an ever-varied experience of the Amazon’s multiple landscapes and wonders.
