Why River CruiseWITH AMAWATERWAYS

After an extended period at home, we share in your anticipation of creating magical memories through travel – and river cruising is the ideal way to bring your dreams to fruition. With the highest-rated ships in Europe according to the third edition of Berlitz: River Cruising in Europe & the USA, we have received countless honors and accolades. Discover up to five countries during one unforgettable journey in Europe, Asia or Africa on a river cruise that provides you with the luxury of so much more.




YOUR TRUSTED SOURCE

To ensure your safety and satisfaction every step of the way throughout your journey, consider making all your future travel plans in one convenient step. Our concierge services allow you to reserve your flights with exclusive private transfers between the ship and airport, add land programs 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 newly enhanced Travel Waiver Plus. No need to call and research multiple providers – just contact your preferred travel advisor and we’ve got you covered.

UNPACK ONCE: A SEAMLESS EXPERIENCE

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.

INTIMATE, AWARD-WINNING SHIPS

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 look forward to welcoming two new ships in Europe, AmaSiena and AmaLucia, as well as the stunning newly designed AmaDahlia, which sets sail on Egypt’s Nile River.


*based on current protocols, European river ships may be cruising with less than 100 guests.

INNOVATION AND SUSTAINABILITY

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, 18 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.


DOUBLE YOUR LEISURE TIME

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.
