AmaWaterways Boasts Highest-Rated River Cruise Ships

AmaWaterways offers an impressive 16 ships for the river cruiser — as well as a way to take in the sights from a different view. Why not travel on the highest-rated river cruise line in Europe? Additionally, AmaWaterways offers river cruises in Asia and Africa.

AmaWaterways makes river cruising easy, fun, and luxurious. Staterooms are spacious and each offers not one, but two private balconies. That means you can look forward to beautiful panoramic views!

Normally, food and drink is included in your fare. However, AmaWaterways provides lots of exciting extras. Want to dine in a specialty restaurant? That’s included. Enjoy fine wine and beer with your meal, no charge. How about a shore excursion in every port? You got it. If you feel like exploring your destination, you can even take a free bicycle.

The AmaWaterways Difference

The Ama Differcence
A proactive, personalized approach to exceeding expectations is a hallmark of the AmaWaterways experience. Since they have a higher staff-to-guest ratio (1 staff member for every 3 guests) on their ships, their team can fully dedicate themselves to providing each of their guests with the highest level of service.

From the time you book your cruise to the time you board your flight home, you will be treated to an exceptional hospitality experience. Each member of their crew whether it's a stateroom steward or a Cruise Manager is an expertly-trained professional with a passion for what they do and a commitment to excellence. AmaWaterways considers their guests part of the family, and they work hard to make sure you feel that way the entire time you're onboard. What's more, you'll have the same highly-trained Cruise Manager during both your cruise and land program.

Multiple Fine Dining Venues

AmaWaterways was invited to be a member of La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs – a prestigious international culinary society – and with good reason. Their expert chefs craft menus that feature exquisite, locally-inspired cuisine as well as traditional Western offerings. AmaWaterways is the only river cruise line that has The Chef’s Table, an intimate specialty restaurant where you can watch the chef prepare a lavish dinner right in front of you. Each meal is specially paired with premium local reds and whites from Europe’s renowned wine regions, with new selections each night. There’s also sparkling wine and fresh juice with breakfast, menu service during lunch, as well as delicious tapas and snacks in the Main Lounge between meals. All onboard dining, as well as unlimited wine and beer with lunch and dinner, is included so you can indulge whenever and however you’d like.

Luxurious Onboard Amenities

attract
With fewer guests on board, AmaWaterways have space for luxurious amenities. Relax with a massage after a day of exploring, stay in shape with the fitness room and watch castles go by while enjoying a cocktail and taking a dip in the sun deck pool with a swim-up bar.

While on your cruise, you’ll want to share all the pictures you take of everything you see and do. And, you also want to stay in touch with your friends and family back home. That’s why we provide free internet access and Wi-Fi when you’re aboard. Your stateroom also has a computer that you can use in case you didn’t bring your mobile device, or just want to sit down at a desk to surf the web.
