Experience a once-in-a-lifetime Amazon River cruise on our all-inclusive de-luxe floating hotel. One of the many natural wonders of Brazil is the confluence of the Solimões River and the Negro River, a meeting of waters after which the Amazon river is called by its own name until it reaches its mouth. And it is precisely there at that crossroads, in the city of Manaus (Amazonas State), that IBEROSTAR has placed one of the crown jewels of its Grand Collection group: The Grand Hotel-Ship Amazon, an entirely ‘all inclusive’ Luxury floating hotel. Join Kosher River Cruises as we journey deep into nature’s remotest places to experience a totally different kind of adventure, surrounded by the wonders of the rainforest, all while immersing yourself in the comforts of a luxury floating hotel and delicious Glatt Kosher cuisine by Master Kosher Chef Malcolm Green.

KRC Expedition Collection: Kosher River Cruises is known for our signature all kosher, all luxury, all-inclusive river cruise and tour programs; and now we bring to our guests our KRC Expedition Collection to the Amazonas. Our Expedition Collection operates cruises to those unique, remote, and off-the-beaten-path locations (with many of the same services) including beautifully appointed cabin-suites all with individual private balconies, full baths, personalized service, theatre, onsite synagogue, delicious Glatt Kosher cuisine, onboard activities, tour excursions, plus so much more… all aboard for adventure!
