Life Aboard

Fantastic dining, airy & luxurious spaces

You’ll find that time aboard is relaxing and enlightening—the perfect peaceful respite between activities of hiking in search of rare wildlife, kayaking, and exploring the river. 

Dining: taste the region
Dining aboard the Delfin II offers a window on the region. All food served aboard, with the exception of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, is sourced from sustainable providers. We can accommodate most special dietary requests; but due to the remoteness of our expedition, any requests need to be made 45 days in advance.

The gracious dining room, located aft on the upper deck, offers open seating for meals with unassigned tables. All guests are served in a single seating. Meal hours are posted aboard.

Public spaces perfectly suited to our style of travel
The ship's top deck is open to the river views—whether from the open air observation lounge or the large picture windows in the air-conditioned presentation room. It is a natural gathering place for our expedition community. Tropical blooms radiate spot color throughout the ship. Rattan sofas expand the possibilities for relaxing lazy-river style or curling up with a book while waiting for the glorious Amazon sunset. Silken hardwood floors stretch across the ship, and open spaces invite the river’s cooling breeze to flow throughout.

Open-air lounge: Relax between rain forest adventures in the open air lounge outfitted with big, soft sofas and chairs—perfect for catching the breeze and watching river life glide past. Our bartender will always be on hand with options for continental and local cocktails, and coffee and tea are always available.

Presentation room: The air-conditioned lounge on the top deck lounge is the heart of our expedition community. It is where we'll hold evening Recaps and presentations from staff. Coffee, snacks, and juice are put out before breakfast for early risers.

Bar: The bar is open from lunch until after dinner. Liquors, soft drinks, and fresh, tropical juices are available. The bar is located on the top deck in the lounge.

Library: There is a small library located toward the front of the lounge.

Exercise room: Between outings in the rain forest, take advantage of the ship's gym to boost your cardio or stretching. The room's floor-to-ceiling window ensures you don’t miss any of the spectacular forest views.

Spa: Indulge in wellness and spa treatments inspired by the verdant natural surroundings of the Amazon with a massage in the spa room. Enjoy it as a reward at the end of an active day, or choose to book time with our massage therapist in place of an outing. Spa treatments are not included in the cost of your expedition.

Dining room: Each meal is an even in this convivial room with 270-degree views of the river and an ever-changing tablescape of local handicrafts.

Bridge: The ship is operated with an open bridge policy, and you are welcome to visit the bridge to watch the calm art of navigation unfold.
