Rivers were once Europe’s “highways” across the continent, serving as life-sustaining links between the continent’s grandest capitals. Nowadays, your river cruise ship is a “floating hotel” that can often dock right in the heart of these historic cities, steps away from top cultural attractions and historic sites. Beautiful river views and superb locations…and you only have to unpack once! Daily shore excursions with expert guides will show you the “must see” sights of your destination, visiting famous landmarks as well as hidden gems.
When you travel with AmaWaterways, you do more than simply visit a destination – you experience it in a truly authentic and in-depth way. It begins with a champagne welcome as you step aboard and meet our courteous crew and your fellow passengers, many of whom you will consider friends by the end of your journey. You will also meet a personable and knowledgeable Cruise Manager who will be with you every step of the way, even on your optional pre-cruise or post-cruise land program. It is this attention to detail that distinguishes AmaWaterways from all the rest and keeps our satisfied guests coming back again and again.
AmaWaterways’ custom-designed ships offer comfortable lounges with panoramic windows, inviting dining rooms, cozy libraries stocked with books and games, and a choice of enticing dining venues.
Every vessel in our luxurious European fleet has a capacity limited to no more than 164 passengers, allowing for truly personalized service in a warm and friendly atmosphere.
