Delight in the Majesty of the Douro Valley with AmaDouro
In 2019, AmaDouro was added to AmaWaterways' fleet of European river cruise ships. This smaller vessel can carry up to 100 passengers and includes a swimming pool, floor-to-ceiling windows and step-out balconies in the majority of cabins. Enjoy North American and European-inspired dishes in the main restaurant, with complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks. Onboard activities include local entertainment, cooking classes and port wine appreciation classes. Wi-Fi is complimentary. AmaDouro is a great option for adults or grown, adult children seeking an unforgettable experience cruising the Douro. The weeklong Enticing Douro itinerary operates round trip from Porto, Portugal and includes a three-night pre-cruise stay in Lisbon as an add-on.
AmaWaterways River Cruises
With AmaWaterways, you have the option of exploring Europe's amazing sights like the locals do. AmaWaterways was the first river cruise line to carry an entire fleet of complimentary bicycles on board, so you can experience biking alongside enchanting riverside pathways and in city centers. Whether you feel like joining one of their exclusive guided bike tours, or want to go discover on your own, there are many ways for you to explore on two wheels during your cruise.
The beauty of Europe doesn't just lie in its architecture and landmarks & there are also breathtaking things to be seen when you venture out into nature. That's why AmaWaterways designed special guided hikes that will take you a bit off the beaten path in some very beautiful destinations like the Wachau Valley. These unique, active tour options are included in the cruise fare so that you have more choices when it comes to how you prefer to explore.
The AmaWaterways Difference
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. At AmaWaterways, they only hire the best of the best. 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
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 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 free internet access and Wi-Fi is provided 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.
