AmaWaterways ship cruising on a river
The heart of the river

Indulge in exquisite regionally inspired cuisine, authentic excursions, and unparalleled service. Turn every mile you travel into a cherished memory.

Unpack once: a seamless experience

Step aboard and unpack once, traveling between grand capitals and charming villages without the need for multiple hotels or forms of transportation. On one of AmaWaterways unforgettable river cruises, every day is a “see” day rather than a “sea” day because they 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 their quick and easy embarkation and disembarkation, you can step right off the ship and explore.


Unparalleled personalized service

From greeting you by name to remembering your unique dietary preferences, AmaWaterways crew is more than just highly trained, they “sparkle.” They are taking every recommended preventive measure into account on board, as well as intensifying their very high standards of hygiene because your health and safety are their top priority.


A variety of included excursions

AmaWaterways has curated a diverse menu of shore excursions, with a variety of choices each day. Walking tours for gentle, regular, and active guests, as well as guided hikes and bike rides in small groups of just 15-20 guests. They also offer immersive culinary-themed special interest tours such as cooking demonstrations and tastings. As AmaWaterways often docks just steps from the heart of the city, you may also explore many destinations on your own on foot or by bike.
