Why we love AmaWaterways
Their river boats accommodate an average of 156 guests, making it a more spacious and uncrowded experience.
Leisure is at the forefront - with complimentary bike hire and a fleetwide wellness program, you'll find plenty of options for exercise if you want it.
No need for ports - the luxury of a river cruise is that the boat can dock in the heart of city centres, meaning you can hop on and off at your own pace and be right where you need to be without worrying about coach transfers.
A variety of included excursions will be part of your package - so you don't need to worry about how much 'optional extras' are going to cost.

Tours & Leisure
INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF YOUR RIVER CRUISE
AmaWaterways realise that each of our guests have different tastes, so they've developed a menu of shore excursions in every port of call.
In many destinations, you’ll be free to choose from one of several options — all of which are included in your cruise fare. There’s always a city tour designed to show you all the renowned highlights and landmarks in grand capitals and charming villages alike.
Opt for an unforgettable exploration of the major sights led by a local, English-speaking guide that is well versed in history and culture. Or, instead of taking the city tour, indulge in a bratwurst and beer tasting on one of their Special Interest Tours, which are specially designed to place you in the midst of local life. Are you looking for something more active? See the beautiful scenery of Austria’s Wachau Valley with a guided bike tour along the Danube.
