Your Personal Châteaux on the Rivers

Our exceptional fleet in France includes four award-winning river cruise ships featuring lovely French balconies, open-air whirlpools and a limited number of specially designated single staterooms to accommodate our wonderful solo travelers. On the Rhône River, we are proud to cruise aboard our remarkable twin-balcony ship AmaKristina – one of our most award-winning ships to date. All five ships include a spacious Sun Deck and The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant, included in your river cruise fare.

Boasting our innovative twin balconies, heated pool with swim-up bar, fitness room and a fleet of onboard bicycles, this ship offers a distinctive experience.


Every moment is a treat aboard AmaDante, with spacious staterooms – most with French balconies – a sauna and whirlpool, massage room, hair salon and more.


Our sole ship in Bordeaux offers the sweet life with French balcony staterooms, The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant, a sun-deck walking track and fleet of onboard bicycles.


Decorated in a palette of gold and orange that reflects Europe’s brilliant autumn foliage, the AmaCello is a floating delight.


Revel in the indulgences offered by the sauna, whirlpool, and massage and hair salon, or take advantage of a sun-deck walking track, fitness room and fleet of complimentary bikes.

A Variety of Excursions

With up to six included excursions each day, it’s easy to personalize your experience in France. In Vienne, for example, choose from a walking tour around the city, a guided bike tour along the ViaRhôna bike route, or a guided hike from the ship to the monastery at Mount Pipet. We also offer culinary-themed special interest tours, such as a red wine and chocolate tasting in Tournon. All of our excursions are offered with AmaWaterways’ compliments.
