River cruising offers travellers the opportunity to unpack once and be transported to and through inspiring cultures, enriching experiences and new places of discovery every single day.

It’s a relaxing and seamless way to journey through bucket-list destinations, and by adding a premium level of luxury, it will forge memories that last a lifetime.


A new memory for every mile


With over two decades of experience on the world’s rivers, family-owned and operated AmaWaterways remains focused on providing guests with innovative and unforgettable travel experiences.

AmaWaterways’ fleet of luxury ships transports guests to awe-inspiring places across Europe, Asia, Africa and by 2025, South America as well. Cruising through grand capitals and charming towns, the ships dock near city centres, meaning you can step right off the ship and explore.

Authentic, and often exclusive, moments you can expect with AmaWaterways focus on local cultures and memorable encounters.

Engage your senses at Bordeaux’s Cite du Vin, go in search of Black Diamond truffles in Grignan, or immerse yourself in local life at a Portuguese quinta, complete with an unforgettable and delicious culinary experience.


Inclusive of all the best parts

Bordeaux, France

Included in every cruise fare is a carefully curated and diverse menu of shore excursions that cater to plenty of different interests and activity levels.

In some locations, guests can choose from up to six included excursions. On offer are tours for both gentle and active walkers (as well as late risers!), or enjoy city tours, guided hikes, exhilarating bike rides, and tastings of local specialties – all on one itinerary.

And it’s not only the excursions that are included in the AmaWaterways experience. Onboard dining is designed to impress.

With membership in the internationally recognised La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, and Tables et Auberges de France, AmaWaterways takes pride in preparing exquisite, regionally inspired cuisine using locally sourced ingredients.

Complimentary hand-selected wines and local beers are served during every lunch and dinner on board to further enhance the river cruise.

The variety of dining options onboard all offer lovingly prepared cuisine from the Main Lounge, Main Restaurant and The Chef’s Table, where all guests are invited to enjoy a multi-course tasting menu prepared right before you.


Awaken your palate

Uncork local traditions on one of AmaWaterways’ specialty wine cruises. These cruises offer enhanced epicurean experiences included in the cruise fare.

Choose from destinations including Austria’s UNESCO-designated Wachau Valley, France’s celebrated Bordeaux area or distinguished Burgundy and Côtes du Rhône regions, Portugal’s Douro Valley – the oldest demarcated wine region in the world, or Germany’s breathtaking Rheingau, Franconia and Moselle regions.

All wine cruises are led by a knowledgeable Wine Host, who leads special tastings and discussions, curates food and wine pairing and accompanies you to historic cellars and vineyards ashore.

Ordered rosemary-crusted lamb? A clear match for Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Oysters on the half shell? Try a Loire white. Rich chocolate cake? Port is in order.


The luxury of space

Stateroom, Deck 3 Portside

Spacious and uncrowded, AmaWaterways’ award-winning fleet offers elegantly appointed staterooms and suites and welcomes fewer guests than many traditional river cruise ships.

The innovative AmaMagna offers enhanced personal space with the largest suites on the river as well as four unique dining venues, a chic onboard cinema and an expansive Zen Wellness Studio.

No matter which ship you have the pleasure of boarding, you’ll find public spaces always feel generous, and once you’re out exploring the next destination along the river, the small group excursions guarantee a more intimate encounter and personalised immersion.


Self-care is a focus on this holiday

Yoga on the sun deck

Dedicated Wellness Hosts lead complimentary small-group fitness classes on board all European ships to ensure you start every day of your cruise the best way.

For a gentler approach to wellness, perhaps take a dip in the sun deck pool or indulge in a spa treatment. Healthy cuisine prepared with seasonal ingredients is always available, as are vegetarian, gluten-free and low-sodium choices.

You can also rely on your Wellness Host to show you the best parts of a city or village on foot or bicycle.
