Aqua Expeditions loses the Aqua Amazon in Accident

July 18, 2016 River Cruising No Comments Email Email

It is with much regret and sadness that Francesco Galli Zugaro, Founder and CEO of Aqua Expeditions, announced that on Saturday, 16 July, the Aqua Amazon suffered a very serious accident, and sank.

During the regular Saturday supplying and turn-around hours for re-stocking of the vessel, an accident occurred that caused an explosion and resulted in the sinking of the ship.  The investigation is ongoing and more information will be shared as it becomes available.

No passengers were onboard but some of the crew have been hurt and up to four are declared missing. All efforts are being made to get a better understanding of the status of the missing crew.  The entire operations team is on the ground providing logistical support with local emergency services.

Passengers scheduled to depart Saturday on the Aqua Amazon have been reassigned to the Aria Amazon and other river cruisers.

For any further sales and reservations issues regarding passengers’ queries, the Lima and Singapore offices will be open on Sunday regarding future bookings on the Aqua Amazon.
