An AmaWaterways river cruise is about more than the destination – it’s the journey. We invite you to take one of our European river cruises, Asia river cruises, or Africa river cruises and see the world in luxury and comfort.
River cruising through Europe with AmaWaterways is an excellent way to explore a destination. Discover local culture and sights on included tours, and then hop back on your luxurious river cruise ship and sail to the next stunning city or charming town. Included in the fares of our river cruises are shore excursions in every port of call; all dining on board (including The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant); fine wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner; internet access and Wi-Fi; and bicycles that you can use to explore on your own or join our guided bike tours. In Europe, you can take one of our Danube river cruises, or one of our Rhine river cruises. We also offer river cruises in France and Portugal. We hope that you enjoy exploring our many itineraries in Europe, Asia and Africa, and look forward to welcoming you aboard soon.
