Journey One Step Further With AmaWaterways
In 2019, soar higher, venture deeper and pedal further than you ever imagined into grand cities and Old World villages. With AmaWaterways, you won’t just see fairytale castles and storybook towns. You’ll trace the footsteps of philosophers, kings and queens as you climb storied paths to hilltop fortresses like Dürnstein, where Richard the Lionheart was once held captive.
You’ll bike past celebrated vineyards to iconic sights like stunning Melk Abbey. You’ll inhale the aromas of lavender in Provence; taste the satisfying complexities of Vietnamese pho; hear the joyful beat of African drums. Because with AmaWaterways, you can do it all: finish your bucket list in this lifetime—and still have time to journey one step further.
Whether you choose to sail through Europe, Southeast Asia or Africa, or indulge in an epicurean adventure on one of more than 60 wine-themed cruises, you won’t just step aboard your ship. You’ll float carefree to your peaceful oasis, a flute of sparkling champagne in one hand, a red rose from the captain in the other.
Three new ships join AmaWaterways’ award-winning fleet in 2019: the AmaMora, sailing the Rhine River; the AmaDouro, gliding down her namesake river through Portugal and Spain; and the extraordinary AmaMagna, making her home on the Danube River. At nearly twice the width of traditional European river ships, AmaMagna offers guests an oasis of personal space in luxurious suites measuring 355-710 sq. ft. and with full balconies, accounting for more than 50% of the ship’s accommodations. And, with five bars, four unique dining venues, two soothing massage rooms in the expansive Zen Wellness Studio and the one and only Water Sports Platform on the river, you’ll find a wide variety of dining, wellness and leisure experiences on board.
No matter which ship serves as your home away from home, you’ll be treated to AmaWaterways’ signature dining experiences. When cravings arise, you’ll dine like royalty on exquisite, locally sourced cuisine, masterfully prepared by passionate expert chefs, and inspired by the regions you visit and paired with complimentary free-flowing wine during lunch and dinner. And on one special night, you’ll savor a mouthwatering, multi-course tasting menu in The Chef’s Table, watching as your master chef chops, sears and meticulously plates the most elegant works of art—as divine to view on the plate as they are on your palate.
Many ships feature AmaWaterways’ twin-balcony staterooms, so you can experience fresh air and postcard-worthy views. Complimentary Wi-Fi helps keep you connected to home. And in the evenings, you’ll be entertained by local musicians and folklore performers who immerse you in the sounds and stories of their homeland.
Ashore, you’ll create enduring memories on a variety of always included excursions, as well as guided biking and hiking adventures. There are also Special Interest Tours that immerse you even deeper into the rich culture and flavor of each destination, so you can hunt for truffles on a farm in Avignon; taste Slovakian specialties in Bratislava; or knead your own pretzel dough in Wertheim.
AmaWaterways’ popular Wellness Program goes fleetwide in 2019, so you can nurture your mind, body and spirit on board. Whether you wake up your muscles with a brisk lap on the Sun Deck walking track or get your heart pumping with core strengthening in the fitness center, a professionally trained Wellness Host will be your guide. Plus, you’ll find fresh infused waters available each day, so you can rehydrate with a boost of citrus, ginger or even the healing energy of a gemstone.
