Travel In Confidence with AmaWaterways

The world has changed; however, AmaWaterways commitment to the health and safety of their guests and crew remains of the utmost importance. AmaWaterways want to reassure you that they are working with global health authorities and local governments in the U.S. and around the world to follow all the most up-to-date health and safety protocols, some of which we have summarised for you below.

AmaWaterways Safety Onboard

With intimate ships, small group excursions, lots of open air hiking and biking options and always cruising within a country at close proximity to medical facilities, river cruising is poised to be one of the first travel experiences to rebound.

AmaWaterways want to reassure you that they will always go over and above any guidelines that are in place to ensure the comfort, safety and security of their crew and guests.

• Each ship will have a designated Public Health Officer who will be on board to oversee the experienced staff and crew as they take care of all the important details so you can relax and enjoy your river cruise holiday.

• Current standard procedures will include pre-boarding health questionnaires and non-contact temperature checks before boarding. Guests will need to wear face coverings when moving around inside the ship, and of course there is intensified schedules and detailed cleaning procedures for public areas and staterooms.

• As they begin operating again with less than 100 guests onboard, AmaWaterways are fortunate to have plenty of space on their ships. With different dining venues plus a new room service option they can comfortably accommodate all guests during mealtimes and still respect social distancing rules.

• An important question that comes up quite frequently is regarding filters and air conditioning – AmaWaterways do not recirculate air anywhere on their ships. Each stateroom and each public area has its own individual “fan coil” air cooling and heating unit that does NOT need filters. They do NOT recirculate air like on planes and some of the larger ocean going vessels.

As you can see AmaWaterways have gone above and beyond to make sure your cruise will be as enjoyable as ever!
