Traveling along the Danube and discovering Vienna and Budapest’s dazzling glamour. Or sailing along the Seine and falling in love with the romance of Paris. Be charmed with the scenic Main River and Bavaria’s endless cobblestone streets and half-timbered homes. Explore the richness of Southeast Asia’s Mekong River, or discover Africa’s Chobe River on a wildlife cruise and safari experience.

Whatever vacation you’re dreaming of, AmaWaterways will take you there in style – aboard the highest-rated ships in Europe according to premier travel authority Berlitz.


In every port, guests can choose from a selection of included city tours as well as Limited Edition Tours, which encourage further immersion into the local culture. Indulge in authentic Belgian waffles and chocolate making in Antwerp or learn how to cook French cuisine in Provence. For guests seeking a more active approach, AmaWaterways has expanded their award-winning guided biking and hiking tours.

Wine Cruises provide in-depth epicurean dimensions to standard itineraries—at no additional costs. Uncork local traditions while exploring stunning wine regions like Bordeaux, the Wachau Valley and South Africa’s Cape Winelands. You’ll be greeted by wine experts offering lectures, excursions to historic vineyards, curated wine tastings and, of course, award-winning cuisine paired with perfectly chosen vintages.


AmaWaterways created the concept of twin-balcony staterooms. With both a French and outside balcony, such spacious accommodations offer panoramic views in the privacy of your stateroom.

Indulge with a soothing massage, exercise in the complimentary fitness room, discover special souvenirs in the curated gift shop and visit the onboard hair stylist. The heated pool comes with a swim-up bar atop the sun deck.


AmaWaterways is the only river cruise line invited to be a member of La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs—an exclusive and prestigious international culinary society. Expert chefs prepare, locally-inspired cuisine – ensuring an authentically delicious experience. It is also the only river cruise line to offer The Chef’s Table—an intimate specialty restaurant where a lavish dinner is prepared in front of you. All onboard dining, as well as unlimited premium wine and beer with lunch and dinner, is included with your cruise.
