This Awesome Ship Is the Only Cruise I Would Take

Captain Schettino or not, I hate cruises. Being trapped in a giant floating building with three thousand people and a buffet is my idea of bloody hell. But I would love to go across the Amazon river on the ship above.

It's called Aria, the twin sister to Aqua, two luxury cruises owned by a company called Aqua Expeditions. It looks weird and wacky, yet strangely beautiful.

Of course, other than enjoying the ship itself, you stop also stop along the way to explore all the different river habitats and say hi to the pythons and the yacares. I want to do this with my own Katherine Hepburn (I know, the Amazon is not in Africa. Stop saying words). [Aqua Expeditions via Fancy]

Arggh! there goes a...snake a snake!

Jesus, I recommend you take a cruise similar to the one I took a few years ago. I'm the type of person who, when traveling somewhere new, wants to actually get out and walk around, rather than being trapped on a boat. I did a really cool Caribbean cruise where basically the ship sails overnight, and every morning it docks at a new island. You can then spend the day checking out each island. There were still those people who'd rather stay on the boat and eat all day long, but I was rarely on the boat other than when it was bed time. It was also a great deal if you look at it from a practical standpoint. If you were to do that same trip having to fly and get a hotel on each of the islands, it would be super expensive.
