Your cruise liner will stop off at river ports along the way: Santarem, Boca do Valeria and Manaus, giving you the chance to walk forest trails, meet typical local communities and marvel at the astonishing architecture of the region's towns. Every traveller has fantasized about trekking through the Amazon rainforest or waking up to the call of a thousand birds. Now is your chance, with a once-in-a-lifetime Amazon cruise holiday.

On an Amazon cruise holiday you will experience high humidity with temperatures remaining tropical throughout the year. The Amazon cruises tend to operate in the rainy season, which runs from December to June, however temperatures remain high even with frequent daily rains. The dry season runs from July to November, when temperatures have been known to hit 40°C. Like any area the size of the Amazon, regional differences can be significant.
• Average temperature: 27-32°C
• Temperature during dry season: 26-40°C
• Temperature during rainy season: 23-30°C

We are able to offer cruises on board Fred Olsen Cruise Line. Fred.Olsen welcome disabled passengers, dependent on the use of wheelchairs for mobility, to all their ships. They do request though that they are always accompanied by an able-bodied companion. There are a limited number of wheelchair accessible cabins so early booking is recommended. From the sun-drenched beaches of the Caribbean to the character of the Canaries, the tranquillity of the Med to the amazing scenery of the Norwegian Fjords, or the history of the Baltic to memorable journeys around the world; we know that we will find a cruise destination to suit you and your needs.

Wheelchair Accessible Cabins
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines warmly welcomes any Guests, dependent on the use of wheelchairs for mobility, to all of their vessels. They do however request that disabled passengers are always accompanied by an able-bodied companion. A limited number of cabins on each ship have been modified to facilitate more comfortable occupation for such guests. We respectfully require wheelchair users to bring their own wheelchair.
However, on the Braemar, owing to a restricted turning circle when accessing the bathroom, we would not recommend these cabins to wheelchair bound Guests. Only a limited number of adapted cabins are available on each ship so early booking is essential.
A crew member will be assigned to each cabin occupied by a wheelchair user, who would be called upon to provide the required assistance in the unlikely event of an emergency at sea.
Fred.Olsen ships with disabled cabins:
- MS Braemar: Permits 4 wheelchairs and has 4 cabins modified or wheelchair use.
- MS Black Watch: Permits 6 wheelchairs and has 4 cabins modified for wheelchair use.
- MS Boudicca: Permits 6 wheelchairs and has 4 cabins modified for wheelchair use.
- MS Balmoral: Permits 12 wheelchairs and has 9 cabins modified for wheelchair use.
Other Guests who prefer to use a wheelchair to assist them in covering significant distances ashore will therefore be restricted from using their wheelchair when the vessel is at sea. Additionally, the number of wheelchairs we can accept for use ashore only, is also capacity controlled.
Motorised wheelchairs/scooters will only be accepted on Black Watch, Boudicca, Braemar and Balmoral when occupying an adapted cabin. On health and safety grounds, chairs weighing in excess of 25kg cannot be carried ashore at any ports of call, other than the start/end point of the cruise, unless they can be easily dismantled.
Fred.Olsen cannot guarantee that assistance by qualified persons will be available at ports of call and unless able to board a vehicle unassisted it will not be possible for wheelchair users to participate in organised shore tours.Owing to the nature of ship to shore tender services, which are utilised at certain ports when at anchor, we regret that it will not be possible to convey any Guests ashore who require more than minimal assistance to board the tender. Safety of our Guests is always of paramount importance.
Fly/cruises - it is important for wheelchair users to advise us immediately as to whether they are unable to climb aircraft steps, so that we can ensure suitable airport assistance is available.
