River Cruise Line: AMAWaterways

You can find detailed information for AMAWaterways and the ships in their fleet below.

AMAWaterways
When AMA Waterways first began cruising the rivers of Europe, river cruising was a very different experience to the one you’ll enjoy today. It was the same Europe, but the experience was far less luxurious. AMA Waterways has been at the forefront of changing river cruising – in Europe and throughout the world. Book a cruise with AMA Waterways today and you’ll experience the benefits of their quiet revolution at first hand. Why AMA Waterways? The Ships: Success has meant that AMA Waterways has added a new ship to its impressive fleet almost every year. The AmaPrima, with its twin balcony suites, 5 dining venues and swim-up bar, joined the fleet in 2013 and now glides between the finest destinations on the Danube. In 2015 AmaWaterways occupied the top 11 spots, of over 280 river cruise ships, in the first edition of the Berlitz River Cruising Travel Guide! No AMA Waterways ship is quite the same but all offer a tempting combination of fitness centres, pools, multiple eateries, bars, spas, beauty salons, whirlpools, and sun deck walking. You’ll even find bicycles to help you explore more of the towns and villages you’ll dock at each day. The Rooms: Whichever ship you choose, you’ll find the same AMA Waterways touches and attention to detail make every adventure a relaxing joy. Staterooms are the largest you’ll find anywhere on Europe’s rivers. Most have French balconies. All have plush, welcoming bedding, cosy bathrobes, exciting toiletries and blissfully powerful showers to use them in; internet access, and TVs with a unique entertainment package. The Food: Lavish barely begins to describe it. Breakfasts of local breads and pastries; cereals and smoked salmon. A wide assortment of meats, cheeses and sausages complemented by an ever changing roster of local specialities. Dinners feature the freshest seafood and delicious meats, served with the local vegetables and salad, and all washed down with complimentary regional wines. The Difference: They call it the ‘AMA Waterways Difference’. It’s a summary of all the things AMA Waterways does that others either don’t, or charge extra for. Take local culture, for example. Ships dock close to the heart of your destination cities, and most summer evenings you’ll find the spirit of each destination brought to life on-board through authentic, traditional and classical music or regional dance. From accommodation to shore excursions, food, drink, cultural entertainment, internet – it’s all included. And every day is an opportunity for new sights and new experiences.
European River Cruises with AMA Waterways
With so many mighty waterways connecting so many enticing destinations it seems almost a crime to journey between them any other way. River cruising is the most relaxed and rewarding way to see more of the continent – and see it at its very best.

Russian Waterways River Cruise Holidays with AMA Waterways
Not so long ago a river cruise along the Volga and Baltic waterways would have seemed unthinkable. But the raising of the Iron Curtain has revealed a world of surprising beauty – natural and manmade – that stretches far beyond the headline grabbing attractions of Moscow and St Petersburg. Discover a new Russia as you cruise its rivers and lakes.

African River Cruises with AMA Waterways
Every river cruise brings with it the chance to spot the wildlife on the river bank, but rarely is the wildlife quite like this. Bring your binoculars and enjoy an epic safari from the relaxed comfort of your stateroom or lounge, then discover the might and power of Victoria Falls.

Myanmar Cruises with AMA Waterways
If your idea of the perfect river cruise is to get to the heart of an unfamiliar world, this should be at the very top of your to-do list. Myanmar is just waking up to the possibilities tourism can bring, and that means an Irrawaddy river cruise now is the best way – and the best time - to enjoy an authentic Myanmar experience. Take the road (or river) to Mandalay, and discover the truth of life in the country the UK still calls Burma.

River Cruises to Vietnam & Cambodia with AMA Waterways
It’s hard to overstate how beautiful, how exciting and how endlessly surprising a river cruise down the Mekong can be. Yet stretching back long before a desperate modern history of war and brutal regimes is a world of golden palaces, colonial-inspired cities, paddy fields and the stunning temples of Angkor Wat. Explore the new and the old with AMA.
