Delfin I

Ship Overview

Operated by: Delfin Amazon Cruises

In a setting of understated elegance and world-class hospitality, the classic river vessel Delfin I features just four oversized suites, all with private panoramic terraces; two offer a private whirlpool for the ultimate treat. Travellers will be spoiled by the floor-to-ceiling windows that allow nature to be part of the natural suite décor. Cabin service three times a day will ensure you the most personalised service possible.

Although it caters to just eight guests at any one time, Delfin I features the space and amenities of a much larger ship. On the top deck, guests will find a lounge area, bar and entertainment centre, which are perfect places to relax in while the jungle unfolds before their eyes. As for service, intimacy and personal attention is the key success.
