Delfin Amazon Cruises

Delfin Amazon Cruises

Delfin Amazon Cruises is the pioneer upscale river cruise operator in the Amazon. Launched in early 2006 by its founder and CEO Aldo Macchivallo, a former senior banker with 25 years experience in the financial sector, the company is the culmination of a dream shared by his wife Lissy: to run a boutique travel business in their amazing country Peru.

Delfin Amazon Cruises have a long term commitment with the Amazon and with all their world travellers’ guests. They consider that from the minute you set foot on Iquitos until you depart back home, you deserve top quality services.

To fulfil this purpose, they do not only invest in their fleet and cruises, but also in a wide range of additional infrastructure they consider necessary to achieve the high standards they live by.


Peruvian cuisine is considered one of the world’s finest and reflects the country's cultural diversity.

Dedicated staff pride themselves on carefully prepared contemporary Creole cuisine one step beyond ordinary. The goal is to provide the highest level of service possible, so that guests enjoy an unparalleled dining experience, guaranteed by personalised attention and superb service. This is only possible when the chef's and crew can focus on just a handful of guests. Just imagine yourselves coming back from the wilderness to enjoy an ambiance created by glowing candle-lights, sparkling china and cristalware, were whatever your delights are... you expectations are sure to be exceeded.

The Amazon provides a wild choice of fresh ingredients. Combined with the gentle blend of immigrant traditions have merged to create one of the world's most unique and delicious cuisines, that's why dining aboard is truly a gastronomic, cultural and historic adventure. A large variety of quality liquors, cocktails, local drinks, natural juices and refreshments will always be available. Wine pairings include some of the best South American vintages.

Deflin Amazon Cruises will accommodate special request and deal with dietary requirements (children, vegetarian, allergies) but because they sail in such remote areas, all requests must be made at least 30 days in advance.
