It’s an extraordinary feeling to step off your river cruise ship just moments from fairytale-like surrounds, framed by a castle standing proudly over sparkling waters. As your small ship travels along the world’s most scenic rivers, the gentle ride is made even smoother with AmaWaterways’ high level of service and amenities that are always included in your experience — and you’ll only have to unpack once. With river cruising becoming more popular, we’re here to make sure you get the most out of your vacation! Let us arrange your journey from beginning to end, from personalized land excursions with a local guide to dedicated service aboard your intimate ship.
One of the most essential privileges of sailing with AmaWaterways is that each vessel carries no more than 164 discerning passengers. The intimate atmosphere fosters a sense that you’ve been welcomed to something truly special: your spacious, Twin Balcony Stateroom offers panoramic views of European villages floating past. There is always ample opportunities to engage with your fellow travelers as you relax, dine and enjoy enriching activities at your leisure. Through it all, a dedicated crew is at your service, intuitively aware of your every need.
Within each port, the charms of Europe’s classic cities, enchanting villages and celebrated wine regions are just beyond your ship, thanks to AmaWaterways’ inclusive philosophy on land and dedication to active excursions. Only with AmaWaterways can you choose up to four included tours in every port, whether your interests lie in cooking, biking, art, history or all of the above! During your excursions you’ll create lasting memories with knowledgeable local guides, from learning the legends of Napoleon in his former home to cycling through the Old Town of Linz and sipping exclusive vintages in a St. Émilion wine cave.
Whether you’re sailing as a couple, a family or with lifelong friends, we can help you extend your vacation, allowing you to linger with a longer stay in Europe’s alluring ports before or after your cruise. From beginning to end, and even in-between, we’ll make sure your river cruise vacation is filled with moments that turn into lifelong memories.
