From the beginning, our goal was to create a river cruise company that we ourselves would enjoy. To us, that meant the highest-quality, locally sourced food and wine; elegantly appointed ships with staterooms offering maximum views to enjoy the ever-changing countryside; and a crew who goes above and beyond, treating every guest like they are part of OUR family.

With that in mind, we have been building one-of-a-kind ships with added comforts and conveniences ranging from our revolutionary twin balconies with both a French balcony and an outside balcony to the one-and-only Chef’s Table specialty restaurant. In 2019, we continue to innovate with three new ships, including the extraordinary AmaMagna—a distinctive evolution of our exceptional European river cruise fleet, offering the ultimate in luxury with even more space and more choices while sailing the legendary Danube.

An AmaWaterways river cruise is about more than the destination – it’s the journey. AmaWaterways invite you to take one of their European river cruises, Asia river cruises, or Africa river cruises and see the world in luxury and comfort. River cruising Europe with AmaWaterways is an excellent way to explore a destination.

Discover local culture and sights on included tours, and then hop back on your luxurious river cruise ship and sail to the next stunning city or charming town. Included in the fares of the river cruises are shore excursions in every port of call; all dining on board (including The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant); fine wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner; internet access and Wi-Fi; and bicycles that you can use to explore on your own or join the guided bike tours.

In Europe, you can take one of the Danube river cruises, or one of the Rhine river cruises. AmaWaterways also offer river cruises in France and Portugal. AmaWaterways hope that you enjoy exploring AmaWaterways’ many itineraries in Europe, Asia and Africa, and look forward to welcoming you aboard soon.
