Launched in 2007, Aqua Expeditions is a boutique luxury river and yacht cruise line with ships offering a unique brand of expedition cruising in the world’s most ecologically and culturally significant locales: the Peruvian Amazon, the Mekong river in Cambodia and Vietnam, as well as the seas of East Indonesia. Our favorite two expeditions are Aqua Blu which sails in Indonesia and Aqua Nera which sails in Peru:
Aqua Blu: Setting the stage for the greatest luxury cruise expeditions in the Coral Triangle.
Aqua Blu is Aqua Expeditions’ first coastal ship, and the first-ever long-range explorer yacht with year-round departures to be permanently based in East Indonesia—the heart of the Coral Triangle and the fabled Old World spice trade route. The 15-suite Aqua Blu will primarily serve three destinations on 7-night coastal cruise itineraries:
