Best Month Iquitos/Cusco

What would be the ideal month(s) to combine an Amazon River cruise out of Iquitos with a trip to Machu Picchu?

We are taking the Aqua cruise and a 10 day land tour to Macchu Picchu etc. in July. From what I read it is a good time to go, it is the dry season for the Amazon, but high season for rates.

Low water in Iquitos is June-Nov. In low water the fishing is much better but access into deeper un adulterated areas is alot harder. I wouldnt do a cruise when the water is low, go for a lodge. When the water is high, access is much better and you get a better view of the surrounding forest!
