AMAWaterways offers a fleet of 25 luxurious ships averaging no more than 100 guests. Their ships feature spacious staterooms, most boasting French Balconies. AMA sails the rivers of Europe, Asia, Africa and Egypt. The vessels feature a fitness center, beauty salon, whirlpool, walking track on the Sun Deck and bicycles for passengers to explore quaint towns and villages on their own.

We realize that our guests have different tastes, so we’ve developed a menu of shore excursions in every port of call. In many destinations, you’ll be free to choose from one of several options — all of which are included in your cruise fare. There’s always a city tour designed to show you all the renowned highlights and landmarks in grand capitals and charming villages alike. Special Interest Tours are specially designed to place you in the midst of local life. Are you looking for something more active? See the beautiful scenery with a guided bike tour. The choice is yours.
With fewer guests on board, we are able to offer an array of amenities on our award-winning ships. When you’re not off exploring another stunning destination, take some time to unwind, relax and rejuvenate with our pools, massage services and more. Soak up some rays or take a dip in our refreshing pool with a swim-up bar as we pass by centuries-old castles, charming villages and other breathtaking scenery. After a marvelous day of immersive shore excursions, return to the ship and treat yourself to a bit of pampering with a soothing massage.
AmaWaterways’ expert chefs craft menus that feature exquisite, locally-inspired cuisine as well as traditional, Western offerings. At breakfast, sip sparkling wine as you partake of the buffet and fresh pastries, or opt for something made-to-order from the menu. Stop by the Main Lounge for a light lunch, or head to the restaurant for full menu service and high-quality regional wine or beer. Dinner is a delectable, multi-course affair with wine recommendations that accompany visually stunning, delicious dishes. Try local favorites — like goulash while cruising through Hungary, bratwurst and sauerkraut after returning to the ship from Vienna.
A proactive approach to exceeding expectations is a hallmark of the AmaWaterways experience. Since we have a higher staff-to-guest ratio on our ships, our team can fully dedicate themselves to providing each of our 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.

With an award-winning fleet, critically acclaimed dining and unique tour options, you will have the trip of a lifetime on our cruises. Most of the staterooms on our fleet feature not just one, but two private balconies — a French balcony and a full outside balcony. Together, they provide a unique panoramic view of the beautiful sights along the river and maximize the natural light coming in. With twin balconies, you can enjoy the river however you like. Our ships are your floating sanctuary. That’s why we chose to carry fewer guests (at most 164), so that we could make your staterooms larger and provide more amenities. With fewer people on board, public spaces like restaurants and lounges are never crowded, and accommodations range from 155 square feet all the way up to 350 square feet.
Whether it’s traditional Bavarian music, a local quartet or contemporary piano favorites, you will enjoy an eclectic schedule of onboard entertainment every night. While on your cruise, you’ll want to share all the pictures you take of everything you see and do. We also understand the importance of staying in touch with your loved ones back home. That’s why we provide complimentary internet access and Wi-Fi 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. And you can download our interactive myAmaCruise river cruise app to read about your daily program and shore excursions, track your itinerary and even email personalized postcards back home.
