Award-winning river cruise line AmaWaterways are leading the way in river cruising, their ever-expanding fleet of innovative and luxurious ships continuing to negotiate the world’s most remarkable waterways. Focusing as much attention on your time on board as they do on your time ashore, AmaWaterways believe river cruising isn’t just about where you went, but also how you got there.
Each AmaWaterways vessel is designed to hold just 164 passengers, so lounges and restaurants on board are never crowded and you’re certain to receive a truly personalised service. Most staterooms feature either a single French balcony or twin balconies (French balcony and outside balcony), along with elegant decoration, in-room Internet access and high quality linens and toiletries.
Public lounges and restaurants are beautifully decorated and welcoming. Along with beautiful private views from your balcony, you’ll also enjoy unobstructed views from the Sun Deck and panoramic vistas from the ship’s lounge. Your AmaWaterways ship can be likened to a floating boutique hotel; simply unpack once and enjoy the same impeccable service every day, the scenery constantly changing around you.
AmaWaterways’ itineraries are carefully designed to completely immerse travellers in the scenery, cultures and history of each destination. You’ll not only visit famous landmarks, but you’ll discover hidden gems too. Limited Edition tours are included in your fare and give an even more in depth experience: cook goulash in Budapest or enjoy Belgian waffles and chocolate tasting in Antwerp. Expertly trained English-speaking destination experts will make sure you see as much as possible of your destination, or you can choose to see the sights in your own time using once of the ship’s complimentary bicycles.
With a fleet of bicycles on board and at no extra charge to use them, why not explore each destination on two wheels and venture out in the city in your own way? Pedal along the beautiful Danube, take in the Dutch countryside and sample local cheeses or explore Rouen, the capital city of France’s historic Normandy region, that are but a few of the opportunities you can take advantage of. Alternatively you can choose to join a complimentary guided tour that is held in certain ports.
In true testament to the world class culinary fare on board the AmaWaterways fleet, the line is the only river cruise line to be inducted into La Chaine des Rôtisseurs, the world’s most prestigious culinary organization. Whether you are enjoying delectable pastries in a morning or taking at seat at the intimate Chef’s Table, all on board dining is included in your fare.
AmaWaterways’ Executive Chef Primus Perchtold holds three gold medals from the European Championship of Culinary Art and oversees menus on board every European cruise, so you can rest assured you’re in for the most delicious dishes both day and night. A Primus Perchtold recipe will also sit on your pillow each night, encouraging you to recreate the culinary magic once you get home.
Eleven of the greatest waterways in the world are opened up to you by AmaWaterways, and there are both European itineraries and more exotic AmaVogages to consider. Enjoy an ever changing landscape of historic cities as you sail the Danube, revel in the romance of the Rhine, sail through the Bavarian countryside and rolling hills along the Main, bask in the natural beauty of the Seine or take in the castles and pretty towns along the riverbanks of the Mosel.
AmaVoyages open up exotic lands for exploration. You’re journey down the Rhone will take you to the vineyards of Burgundy and the hills of Provence, while the Douro sees you sail through one of Europe’s most dramatic river valleys.
The Mekong Delta places you perfectly to experience the vibrant culture and ancient temple ruins of Vietnam and Cambodia, while the Ayeyarwady opens up the golden treasures of Myanmar and mysterious Burma. Board the Zambezi Queen for your African adventure and enjoy a thrilling river safari along the Chobe.
