Why River Cruise with AmaWaterways

Celebrating 20 incredible years on the world’s rivers, our family-owned and operated company has remained focused on what we do best: providing our guests with innovative and unforgettable travel experiences. Our visionary leaders were the pioneers of modern luxury river cruising and have received numerous prestigious awards and accolades. However, we are most fulfilled by the positive feedback we receive from our guests, whom we have always considered a part of our family. Join us, stay awhile and discover Europe, Asia or Africa with us – one river at a time.

To ensure your safety and satisfaction every step of the way throughout your journey, consider making all your future travel plans in one step. Our concierge services allow you to reserve your flights with convenient transfers between the ship and airport, add land packages or extra hotel nights before or after your sailing, and cruise with confidence by adding a Cruise Protection Plan to your reservation as well as our Travel Waiver Plus. No need to call and research multiple providers – just contact your preferred travel advisor and we’ve got you covered.

Step aboard and unpack once, traveling between grand capitals and charming villages alike, without the need for multiple hotels or forms of transportation. On one of our unforgettable river cruises, every day is a “see” day rather than a “sea” day because we sail through the very heart of each destination where castles were built and kings and queens were crowned. Your ship docks in close proximity to city centers, and with our quick and easy embarkation and disembarkation, you can step right off the ship and explore.

Our intimate, contemporary ships offer the luxury of personal space yet accommodate an average of approximately 156 guests, less than on many traditional river cruise ships. Spacious and uncrowded, our award-winning fleet offers elegantly appointed staterooms and suites with such welcoming amenities as our signature view-enhancing twin balconies. In 2019, our innovative AmaMagna was recognized by TIME magazine as one of the World’s Greatest Places, offering enhanced personal space with more than 50% luxury suite accommodations as well as four unique dining venues, a chic onboard cinema, and an expansive Zen Wellness Studio. In 2021, we welcomed two new ships in Europe, AmaSiena and AmaLucia, as well as the stunning newly designed AmaDahlia, which sails on Egypt’s Nile River.

A leader in the industry, we continuously innovate to enhance the guest experience. In addition to our twin-balcony staterooms, we were the first river cruise line to offer a fleet of complimentary bikes, a fleetwide wellness program and The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant – all of which are included in the cruise fare. Innovating with the environment in mind is also extremely important to us. In fact, 20 of our ships in Europe have earned the prestigious Green Award certification for their industry-leading safety, quality and environmental performance – including our most innovative ship to date, the AmaMagna.

Your ship is a means of luxury transportation from destination to destination. The slower pace of river cruising means you have more free time in port and can step right off into the heart of the city and explore. When you’re ready to rejoin the ship, take a dip in the sun-deck pool or whirlpool, participate in one of our wellness activities, relax with a soothing massage or simply watch the scenery go by with a glass of wine in hand – the choice is yours.

You’ll be warmly welcomed on board by AmaWaterways’ professionally trained crew, who always go above and beyond so you have a memorable experience. From greeting you by name to remembering your unique dietary preferences, our crew is more than just highly trained, they “sparkle.” They are taking every recommended preventive measure into account on board as well as intensifying our normal very high standards of hygiene – because your health and safety are our top priority.

AmaWaterways’ extraordinarily friendly and knowledgeable Cruise Managers are the best in the industry, destination experts with extensive experience in providing exceptional levels of personalized service. Warm-hearted, genuine and knowledgeable, they are there for you every step of the way, throughout your entire journey, including during our optional land packages before and after your sailing – unique to AmaWaterways.

AmaWaterways has curated a diverse menu of shore excursions, with a variety of choices each day. Walking tours for gentle, regular and active guests as well as guided hikes and bike rides are operated in small groups of just 15-20 guests. We also offer immersive culinary-themed Special Interest Tours such as cooking demonstrations and tastings. As AmaWaterways often docks just steps from the heart of the city, you may also explore many destinations on your own on foot or by bike.

“As a passionate advocate of living a healthy lifestyle, I am always looking for new opportunities to ensure our guests can extend their own healthy lifestyles while vacationing with AmaWaterways – whether it’s through active hiking and biking adventures, healthy locally-sourced cuisine or our popular wellness activities available fleetwide.” – Kristin Karst, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President.
AmaWaterways was the first river cruise line to offer a dedicated Wellness Host on board leading complimentary small-group fitness classes. For a gentler approach to wellness, we invite you to take a dip in the sun-deck pool or whirlpool or indulge in a spa treatment. Healthy cuisine prepared with fresh seasonal ingredients is always available as are vegetarian, gluten-free and low-sodium choices.

As a member of the internationally recognized La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs and with our Culinary Director a member of the prestigious French association Tables et Auberges de France, AmaWaterways prepares exquisite, regionally inspired cuisine at every meal paired with complimentary hand-selected wines with every lunch and dinner. All meals are included in your river cruise fare – at both the Main Restaurant and at The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant where a delicious multi-course menu awaits. AmaMagna also offers our new Al Fresco Restaurant and Jimmy’s Wine Bar & Restaurant for a total of four unique dining experiences. No matter where you dine, our crew takes great care to personalize your dining experience.
