Summer is just around the corner and there is plenty to celebrate. For starters, we are thrilled to share more about the newest addition to our fleet, AQUA NERA, and her behind-the-scenes progress throughout the past year. Watch the epic 13,000 nautical mile journey she has taken from conception to launch above.  

For more insider exclusives about our brand new vessel, her inspiration, contemporary style, and bold design aesthetic, book our limited cabins still available on board the special founder-hosted  3-, 4-, or 7-night expeditions with Francesco Galli Zugaro on July 3 and July 6, 2021.

The good news does not end there: arrival protocols for travelers into Peru have relaxed to require either a negative PCR or antigen test, exempting quarantine altogether!

We cannot wait to welcome you back with us to discover the depth of the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve in elevated luxury and refined elegance.
