Why AmaWaterways?

As a Civilized Adventures' client said:
"The only river cruise I would ever do is on an AMA waterways boat. The food and service exceeded my expectations. We saw all the other River cruise companies and they don't measure up to AMA's standards. Tour groups were very small with quiet vox (wireless headphones linked to the guide) to hear what the guides were saying. Active tours if you wanted- bike or hike. Amazing food experiences that matched each city we were in....the food or drink or dessert of that region". CN, family group, June 2016

  • #1 rated river cruise line in the definitive Berlitz cruise guide
  • Cruise the Danube, Rhine, Douro, Seine, Rhone & more
  • Some ships have staterooms with connecting doors - great for private groups and families
  • Small-group shore excursions are included at various levels (gentle, regular, energetic, or by bike, even for late-risers)
  • Use of "Quiet-Vox" wireless headsets so you can hear your guide even if you stop to take a photo!
  • Highly trained, attentive and friendly crew reflect Ama's hands-on approach to management.
  • Luxury in a relaxed atmosphere
  • Spacious staterooms range from 160 to 350 sq. ft (some single cabins at 140 sq. ft).
  • Available space was used to make staterooms larger and provide more amenities (instead of just adding more cabins).
  • Fine dining in the Main Restaurant & the Chef's Table or light meals in the lounge
  • Sun Deck Pool (or Jacuzzi), Massage, hair salon, fitness room on all ships
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi, on demand movies etc.
  • New in 2016: cruise in the Bordeaux region of France
  • Optional land extensions are always possible
