Student Story: Sailing Down the Amazon

Will Haddad, a cinema major from McDaniel College, cut this video of footage from his riverboat trip on the Amazon earlier this semester. Students spent 3 days and 2 nights sailing upriver from Manaus to the Rio Negro, exploring the rainforest by day and sleeping in swaying hammocks on the riverboat each night. “I was aiming to capture the emotional mood that Brazil put me in when I was there: one of quiet, pensive wonder at all the interesting sights,” Haddad explained. Take a trip down the Amazon River alongside Semester at Sea students and see the sights of the Brazilian rainforest with the video above.

    Hi Adiel,
    We do not offer what would typically be called an “Amazon Cruise.” We are a shipboard multi-country study abroad program for undergraduates and adult passengers called lifelong learners. We sail to between 8-15 ports per semester and on our Spring 2011 voyage one of the ports was Manaus, Brazil giving us the opportunity to sail down the Amazon River. The current voyage, Fall 2012, will be visiting Manaus as well as future Fall 2013 & 2014. There are options to sail on both of these voyages as a student or lifelong learner.
