Amazon Clipper Cruises have a traditional riverboat fleet and a luxury riverboat running regular cruises along the Amazon. This is The Premium, their luxury vessel, which offers more spacious cabins than their traditional fleet. This boat also has lower beds, and good public spaces. It is small enough to dock at remote spots and to cruise to hidden locations and is the perfect size for a comfortable cruise along the Amazon River.
Open: All year.
Location: The Amazon Clipper Premium is located on the Amazon River, based in Manaus.
Rooms: There are 16 cabins all with en-suite facilities. Most have individual beds and some have bunk beds. All cabins are air conditioned. They all have large windows.
Activities: Exploring the rainforest in motor launches and on foot with expert naturalist guides, guided nocturnal walks, swimming in the river and visiting local settlers in the forest. There are also stops at towns en-route.
Facilities: The boat contains 4 decks. 8 cabins are located on the main deck, with another 8 on the 2nd deck, where there's also a window-lined dining room which seats all passengers comfortably at same time. The 3rd deck is an entertainment area featuring a lectures room with library and TV/DVD, a bar with plenty of comfortable seating, and a large covered area for outdoor sightseeing, with whirlpools and outdoor showers for refreshing and relaxing. All interiors are air conditioned. The top deck is a spacious sundeck with a fantastic 360Â° panoramic views.

"Food, guide, staff were 100% in all aspects. I do warn the owners that its time they painted this asset as it is looking shabby."
