Each measuring a roomy 30sqm, the vessel’s 20 spacious Design Suites are spread across two decks. Decorated with rich, dark-stained wood elements, they ooze tranquillity and elegance. Tastefully woven into the design are accents and details from the rubber boom era and the colourful cultures of Portugal, Spain and Peru.

The refined dining experience onboard is overseen by one of Peru’s finest chefs, Pedro Miguel Schiaffino. Sample sustainable produce such as aji negro, a delicious paste made my local communities, and the indigenous paiche fish.
