Why Embark on a River Cruise with AmaWateways?

When you embark on a river cruise journey with award-winning AmaWaterways, you’ll unpack once and step aboard a world of unparalleled experiences throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and, beginning in 2024, South America. Each day begins in a brand-new destination where guests are always greeted with a smile and warmly welcomed into the dining room for a delicious made-to-order breakfast, such as an omelet made with cage-free eggs or a vibrant breakfast bowl. 

Later, you will step off the ship into the heart of Old-World capitals or storybook villages and enjoy a diverse array of included excursions. Alongside an intimate group of kindred travelers, your local guide will regale you with the tales of kings and queens, renowned composers, great explorers and so much more as you walk, pedal or hike to fascinating castles, cathedrals, vineyards and beyond.

Upon returning to the ship, be greeted with refreshing water or perhaps hot mulled wine depending on the season, later whisked away to a complimentary Sip & Sail cocktail hour and treated to an exceptional multi-course dinner before an evening of live entertainment. Your journey is AmaWaterways’ passion, and they are thrilled to welcome you on board their award-winning ships for an unforgettable river cruise experience. 


Personalize Your River Cruise Journey

From in-depth guided walking tours to more active excursions such as guided hikes and bike rides as well as delightful tastings of local delicacies and regional wine, immerse yourself in incredible destinations along captivating rivers. You can enjoy a variety of included excursions to suit your tastes and personalize your experience. AmaWaterways’ walking tours are offered at three different activity levels – gentle, regular and active walkers – so you can choose the pace that best fits your speed. If you are looking for a special wine cruising experience, AmaWaterways Celebration of Wine sailings offer unique tasting opportunities led by an experienced Wine Host. For specially curated heritage river cruises, embark on a new Soulful Epicurean Experience, where you can explore Black history and African diaspora throughout France and along the Nile River. Groups of 20 or more individuals can also enjoy Jewish Heritage excursions throughout Europe and Egypt as well. 

The Most Innovative Ships on the Rivers

After a satisfying day of exploration, return to your luxurious ship, where you can relax in your spacious stateroom or the comfortable lounge, savor a complimentary drink during the daily Sip & Sail cocktail hour, take in beautiful views on the Sun Deck or enjoy a relaxing massage in our spa treatment room before dinner. Delight in a variety of onboard activities, from nightly performances showcasing the culture of the regions you sail through to fitness classes such as stretching or champagne yoga led by a dedicated Wellness Host. If you decide to stay on the ship during the day, you will find a multitude of entertainment options!
