Southeast Asia river cruise line Pandaw River Expeditions is making the leap to South America, offering a river cruise on the Brazilian Amazon on a new partner vessel, the 21-passenger Amazon Dream.
Expanding beyond Asia for the first time, Pandaw is selling two departures on the Amazon Dream as part of a larger itinerary that includes three nights at the Sofitel Hotel in Rio de Janeiro and a two-night stay in Iguacu at the Hotel das Cataratas near Iguacu Falls, before a nine-night river cruise from Santarem to Belem.
The cruise along the Brazilian Amazon will include witnessing of the meeting of the Tapajos River and the Amazon, experiencing the flora and fauna of the rain forest and stops at white sand beaches and local villages along the way.
Onboard the Amazon Dream, all cabins are air-conditioned and English-, French- and German-speaking guides are available to guests.
Pandaw is also offering two-night extensions in the Brazilian cities of Manaus and Salvador.
The two departures currently on offer are on May 10 and Sept. 27, 2016. Pricing starts at $3,996 per person, based on double occupancy.
