AmaWaterways River Cruise Destinations

Primarily a European river cruise operator, AmaWaterways offer sailings on many of the region's most famous rivers, including the Rhine, the Danube and the Douro. The majority of itineraries last for 7-nights with the option of adding a pre or post-cruise land stay depending on the embarkation or disembarkation port.

AmaWaterways ships often dock just a short walk away from the central attractions, so you will have direct access to the heart of each city or town you visit. From majestic Vienna to Amsterdam's grand canals, a river cruise with AmaWaterways offers you the opportunity to experience a range of highlights in one trip.

AmaWaterways also offers river cruises in Southeast Asia and on the Chobe River in Africa. These itineraries are ideal if you wish to explore an exotic destination but want to retain the comfort and ease of a river-based cruising. In Southeast Asia, you can cruise from either Siem Reap or Ho Chi Minh and discover the enchanting Mekong River aboard AmaDara, while in Africa you can enjoy a safari adventure on the regal Zambezi Queen.

AmaWaterways Ships

AmaWaterways’ ships offer capacity for no than 24 to 164 guests and are amongst the newest vessels currently operating on the rivers of Europe, Southeast Asia and Africa. The staterooms, many of which feature a private balcony, are spacious, tastefully decorated and come with en-suite bathroom facilities while the award-winning dining options are guaranteed to satisfy even the most discerning of palates.

In terms of facilities, nearly every AmaWaterways ship has its own spa, fitness room and pool, so there's plenty to do should you wish to keep active on your cruise. However, if you'd prefer to relax, you will find ample seating and space on the sun deck, which is the perfect location for taking in the scenery as you gently make your way to the next port of call.

AmaWaterways 2021 / 2022

Following the global pause of sailing operations in 2020, AmaWaterways will resume service in June 2021. Upon their return, the AmaWaterways' fleet will welcome two new luxury river ships.
