The Romance of River Cruising
It’s an extraordinary feeling to step off your river cruise ship just moments from fairytale-like surrounds, framed by a castle standing proudly over sparkling waters. As your small ship travels along the world’s most scenic rivers, the gentle ride is made even smoother with AmaWaterways’ high level of service and amenities that are always included in your experience — and you’ll only have to unpack once. With river cruising becoming more popular, we’re here to make sure you get the most out of your vacation! Let us arrange your journey from beginning to end, from personalized land excursions with a local guide to dedicated service aboard your intimate ship.
One of the most essential privileges of sailing with AmaWaterways is that each vessel carries no more than 164 discerning passengers. The intimate atmosphere fosters a sense that you’ve been welcomed to something truly special: your spacious, Twin Balcony Stateroom offers panoramic views of European villages floating past. There is always ample opportunities to engage with your fellow travelers as you relax, dine and enjoy enriching activities at your leisure. Through it all, a dedicated crew is at your service, intuitively aware of your every need.
Under the care of Executive Chef Primus Perchtold, exceptional dining is more than a privilege, it’s a way of life. Aboard all European ships, your complimentary evening at the Chef’s Table restaurant is the ultimate highlight: a multi-course experience at an exclusive, 28-seat venue. Begin your morning with a leisurely breakfast paired with sparkling wine, followed by a casual lunch sourced from the freshest local ingredients. Your day culminates in Chaîne des Rôtisseurs-recognized evening cuisine, accompanied by unlimited pours and unparalleled service, which is enjoyed with every meal.
The Choice is Yours
Should your idea of pampering be curling up with a book in the library, relaxing on the Sun Deck or indulging in a massage, you’ll find a multitude of ways to make the most of your time on board. The pool’s swim-up bar serves your favorite cocktails and lively entertainment serenades you by evening.
Within your spacious stateroom, floor-to-ceiling doors slide open to reveal your French Balcony, perfect for basking in the cool air of evening. Your private outside balcony creates a quiet sanctuary to enjoy at your leisure. And to stay connected with your loved ones, state-of-the-art Entertainment on Demand provides you with complimentary high-speed Internet access, satellite television, movies and more.
Within each port, the charms of Europe’s classic cities, enchanting villages and celebrated wine regions are just beyond your ship, thanks to AmaWaterways’ inclusive philosophy on land and dedication to active excursions. Only with AmaWaterways can you choose up to four included tours in every port, whether your interests lie in cooking, biking, art, history or all of the above! During your excursions, you’ll create lasting memories with knowledgeable local guides, from learning the legends of Napoleon in his former home to cycling through the Old Town of Linz and sipping exclusive vintages in a St. Émilion wine cave.
