About AmaWaterways

AmaWaterways really is a river cruise experience like no other. In the latest Berlitz guide to river cruising by expert Douglas Ward, AmaWaterways earned six of the top ten positions, including this year’s coveted number one spot, awarded to AmaKristina, the namesake of AmaWaterways’ Co-Owner and Executive Vice President Kristin Karst. They are recognised for award winning cuisine, extensive complimentary amenities, carefully crafted itineraries, personalised service and custom designed ships.

AmaWaterways consistently leads the way in river cruising with: enriching theme cruises; an enhanced active discovery programme offering hiking and biking tours; a luxury golf programme; and their unique complimentary Chef’s Table and La Chaine de Rotisseurs dining experience. AmaWaterways were the first river cruise company to introduce an exclusive twin balcony design in the majority of staterooms and their latest feature is the introduction of inter-connecting cabins to accommodate multi-generational families. With cruises travelling throughout Europe, Africa, Vietnam and Cambodia, AmaWaterways gives you the opportunity to see the world in luxury and comfort.
