Aqua Blu is Aqua Expeditions’ first ever coastal ship, and the first-ever long-range expedition-class yacht to be permanently based in the east Indonesian archipelago with year-round departures.
The ship will serve three destinations on seven-night coastal cruise itineraries from its November.
Aqua Blu cruises in the heart of the Coral Triangle and traverses the fabled global spice trade route.
Itineraries will cover tropical islands where wildlife, culture and age-old traditions reside in addition to the world’s best diving and snorkelling sites.
Featuring technologically-advanced stabilisers for ultimate guest comfort while navigating or at rest, the high-performance vessel is also RINA- and SOLAS-certified.
Aqua Nera will sail to the Peruvian Amazon, where it will begin operations on August 1st next year.
Aqua Nera will serve three-, four-, and seven-night river cruise itineraries.
On the Aqua Nera, Aqua Expeditions’ partnership with award-winning Peruvian culinarian Pedro Miguel Schiaffino will continue.
Known for using Amazonian ingredients in his Modern Peruvian cuisine, chef Schiaffino’s menu will reaffirm the cruise line’s steadfast commitment to sustainability and supporting local producers.
