In the very first issue of 2014, join HudsonMOD as we provide you with some incredible journeys to destinations untraveled in ships that sail far from the wake of tourists. In “Water”, our luxury cruising department, we have assembled a list of our favorite boutique luxury-expeditions that bring together romance, mystery and discovery for the discerning traveler.
While the M/V Aqua — Aqua Expeditions flagship — plies the remote regions of the Peruvian Amazon River, letting travelers explore the breathtaking sights and sounds of the Pacaya Samiria Nature Reserve, the Aqua Mekong cruises will take its guests to the next frontier of luxury cruising: Vietnam and Cambodia in Southeast Asia. The Mekong River stretches 2,703 miles through a region with a rich human history two thousand years old. Aqua Expeditions is the best way to experience this cultural and natural offering, providing customizable accommodations that include three, four and seven night itineraries in one of its 20 “Designs Suites”. From your very own balcony or panoramic window, guests will enjoy the vital economy of 60 million people who live, work and play on the river. From floating markets to fertile rice paddy fields, the Vietnamese culture is brimming with activity once the sun rises over the shifting tides of the Mekong.
