AMA 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. Most itineraries last for seven 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 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 for exploring an exotic destination but retain the comfort and ease of river-based cruising. For example, in Southeast Asia, you can cruise from Siem Reap or Ho Chi Minh and discover the enchanting Mekong River aboard AmaDara. You can enjoy a safari adventure in Africa 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 private balconies, are spacious and tastefully decorated and have en-suite bathroom facilities. At the same time, the award-winning dining options are guaranteed to satisfy even the most discerning palates.

In terms of facilities, nearly every AmaWaterways ship has its 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.
