AmaWaterways are consistently award-winning, widely acclaimed not just for their exceptional ships, but for their outstanding service. Rated by Berlitz as the 'best fleet on Europe's rivers', in 2016 their fleet commanded the top ten spots in the latest Berlitz guide to river cruising.
But what is so different about AmaWaterways?
Hop onboard any of their fleet, and you'll see that they're incredibly stylish, contemporary and well appointed. Their ships are custom-designed, with one of the most revolutionary features being the balconies in the staterooms...in the majority of staterooms, there's not just one, but two private balconies (one French, the other a full outside balcony), providing a unique panoramic view of the scenery you'll be passing. AmaWaterways carry fewer passengers, with a maximum of 164 passengers, so staterooms are more spacious, ranging from 160 to 350 square feet, and public areas - such as restaurants and lounges - are never crowded. Staterooms are stocked up with plush amenities, which range from white-on-white plush bedding, a comfortable sitting area, hair dryer, safe, terry bathrobes, slippers, generous sized closet, daily replenished bottled water, flat panel TV with a top-of-the-line InfoTainment system, and a stunning and spacious bathroom, complete with a shower with multi-jet shower heads, spa bath, luxurious body toiletries, and a magnifying mirror.
Onboard savour truly special cuisine onboard AmaWaterways, enjoying thoughtfully crafted menus featuring locally-inspired cuisine and traditional Western offerings, prepared expertly by master chefs from the very best ingredients - it's no wonder that AmaWaterways was invited to be a member of the prestigious international culinary society, La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs. Each meal is specially paired with premium local reds and whites from the most renowned wine regions of Europe; the perfect complement to the excellent gourmet fare. AmaWaterways offers an intimate specialty restaurant, The Chef's Table, where you can watch the chef prepare a lavish dinner.
You can expect the same high levels of quality and standard with AmaWaterways ashore as you can onboard, with their excellently curated shore excursions, led by leading local expert guides, and offering a wider range of options to suit your interests and your abilities. To suit the eclectic and individual tastes' of guests, Ama offer a choice of several options for most destinations, from comprehensive city tours - ideal if it's your first time to a city - to specially designed 'Limited Edition Tours', which place you in the midst of local life, and are especially suitable if you've already seen the main sights of a destination, and wish to experience something new. But options aren't just tailored to guests' interests, but to their pace; there are Gentle, Regular, and Active tour paces to suit you! AmaWaterways was the first river cruise line to carry a fleet of complimentary bicycles onboard, to offer exclusive guided bike tours or simply for guests to explore by bike independently, for an enhanced shoreside experience. They've also designed special guided hikes to take you off the beaten track and discover the breathtaking beauty that can be found when you venture out into nature. Plus, AmaWaterways offer a number of themed cruises on art and wine, with now 40 wine cruises available.
Bella has sailed onboard AmaCerto. She has also cruised onboard AmaKristina with Sarah. Rachel and Amy have both enjoyed a Mekong cruise onboard AmaDara, and visited AmaCerto during a conference. Amy's also enjoyed a seven-night Danube river cruise on AmaSonata.
Bella says: 'An all inclusive luxury river cruise experience - a floating hotel that docks right in the centre of the historic cities, with evening entertainment by local performers'
