AmaWaterways river cruises are the pefect
match for discriminating travelers.

Since its launch in 2002, by river cruise industry pioneer Rudi Schreiner, industry executive Kristin Karst, and the founder of Brendan Tours, James Murphy, AmaWaterways has managed to redefine the concept of river cruising. Starting with just two vessels chartered from a European-based river cruise company, Ama’s growth has been nothing short of remarkable. By 2010, they had expanded to eight ships, including the elegant AmaVerde in Europe, AmaKatarina in Russia and the impeccable AmaLotus in Vietnam. Over the last 7 years they have continued to add many more new ships in Europe, Southeast Asia, and even in Africa sailing the Chobe River. They are very proud to note that they now own or operate the youngest fleet overall in Europe, Russia, and Southeast Asia.

Ama's collection of deluxe ships are designed to accommodate 60 to 212 guests (212 on the AmaKaterina sailing Russia’s Volga River). All AmaWaterways ships are fully air-conditioned and non-smoking. All staterooms and suites enjoy wonderful river views with over 82% enjoying private, dual or French balconies. We think you’ll find it so cool the first time you drop down into one of the many locks the ships pass through and are actually able to reach out and touch the locks granite walls. It’s also really neat to be able to turn off the air-conditioning during the warm Summer and Fall months, leave the balcony doors wide-open and savor the fresh breezes and fragrent aromas along the river, especially at night.

Today, with the launching of the AmaKristina, AmaViola and AmaStella and the AmaLea in 2018, all AmaWaterways ships now feature multiple fine dining options as well as their new, state-of-the-art “Twin Balcony” stateroom design concept. This distinctive and revolutionary design feature, found in the newer ships offer staterooms which consists of a French Balcony for unimpeded views and fresh air, plus a separate "walk-out" balcony allowing for private, al-fresco enjoyment of your river cruise experience. You'll also find even larger cabins than the other ships in Ama’s fleet. While the standard Ama French balcony stateroom is a very spacious 170 square feet, these standard for new builds is a minumum of 210sq ft, both far bigger than other cruise lines offer. There may be no finer way to cruise the Danube and Rhine rivers than in one of these marvelously designed cabins. These exquisite luxury vessels hold a mere 164 passengers in 82 staterooms and suites, all with river views. Staterooms average a robust 214 sq ft — larger than on most ocean cruise ships! One of the most interesting features of their newest vessels like the AmaStella is that AMA offers a number of conecting staterooms and, a few staterooms that hold three passengers, both are first in the river cruise industry.  

Not only has Ama been introducing new ships in Europe but also in Southeast Asia and Africa as well. AmaWaterways introduced the AmaDara to the Mekong River in late 2015. For the ever-popular Mekong River voyages through Vietnam and Cambodia, you definitely must book well in advance to ensure a prime cabin on the date of your choice. Not as well-known as Ama’s Europe and Asia ships is their newly renovated ship the Zambezi Queen launched in 2015 on the Chobe River in Africa. This amazing ship carries only 28-passengers in staterooms up to 300sqft, offers a sophisticated onboard experience, and all spaces are designed to maximize animal sightings. All itineraries are cruise/tours and include land-based safaris! After reading the rest of this article, why not take a few minutes to enjoy the AmaWaterways' videos?

The AmaWaterways philosophy: destination-focused journeys, hospitality, service.
One of the myriad reasons we're so enthusiastic about AmaWaterways and why they continue to win so many awards are their ships. AmaWaterways offers some of the river cruise industry’s most innovative ship designs. But, Ama is not just about their ships. The philosophy of Ama centers around a belief that while you’ll be captivated by the towns, cities and villages of your chosen destination, you’ll also discover that when it comes to river cruising, the journey is every bit as important as the destination. Your journey will start with an exceptional ship, a warm and genuinely friendly crew — they’ll know you name by day two — and then the experience becomes even more rewarding with each day of your river cruise trip.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in between — dining aboard is just this side of heaven.
While a river cruise is most certainly centered around enjoyment of the destination, today's river cruise patron also has high expectations when it comes to the food aboard their floating resort. Fortunately, there are no "midnight" buffets, but the Chefs de Cuisine onboard all AmaWaterways river ships will delight your pallet each and every day of your cruise with a variety of delectable regional and western specialties. Even better, your sommelier will pair each delightful course with the perfect regional wine... and, of course, all wines and beers are complimentary aboard your rivership.
