Luxuy Cruises With AmaWaterways

Inspired by the luxury of a private yacht, AmaWaterways offers a lovingly crafted river cruise experience, delving into a wealth of authentic experiences in Europe, Asia and Africa. Fuelled by the passion of a family-owned company, each boat becomes a ‘floating hotel’, boasting panoramic windows, immaculate staterooms and an array of comforts and amenities than guarantee every journey will meet the highest of standards. With an intimate number of passengers on board – no more than 164 at any one time – the atmosphere is a perfect balance of warm and personal, and never feels over-crowded. The courteous crew ensure all guests receive an exceptional experience. A cruise manager is always on board, guaranteeing every detail is taken care of, and an array of amenities, from a sun deck pool to spa and beauty treatments, provide all luxury comforts you may wish for.

Award-winning dining is a highlight of AmaWaterways, with breakfast, lunch and dinner included on all journeys, along with a selection of regional wines, beers and soft drinks with all meals. The shore excursions are outstanding, too, offering unique experiences that tap into the heart of all destinations. Expert guides lead daily trips, giving small groups the chance to experience local culture, from learning how to make goulash in Budapest to knotting a pretzel and tasting beer from Nuremberg’s oldest brewery. With one of the largest fleets of bicycles provided by a river cruise company, bike tours through Europe’s most beautiful landscapes are a true gem, while a unique river cruise on the sophisticated Zambezi Queen in Botswana offers a world-class safari experience. Whether you are looking to explore the majestic rivers of Europe, the exotics of the Mekong and Irrawaddy or see the beauty of Africa, AmaWaterways promises to do so in unrivalled luxury.
