The ex­pe­ri­ence of a lux­ury river cruise should tran­scend snapshots. It should awaken your senses and en­velop your heart in a warm em­brace. The ul­ti­mate lux­ury river cruise is the au­then­tic­ity of sip­ping a dis­tinc­tive Wachau Val­ley Ries­ling from a Vi­en­nese wine tav­ern vis­ited ear­lier in the day. It’s wak­ing up each morn­ing to an­other spec­tac­u­lar hill­top cas­tle around the river bend. It’s the scent of laven­der waft­ing on the gen­tle Provence breeze; the beat of tra­di­tional African drums. It’s the taste of a del­i­cate yet rich crème brulee hand-torched by an ex­pert chef. It’s im­mer­sive, trans­for­ma­tive and un­for­get­table. It’s AmaWater­ways.

Float­ing In­dul­gence

AmaWater­ways’ river ships de­fine float­ing in­dul­gence, with un­par­al­leled ser­vice, ex­quis­ite cui­sine, and un­lim­ited com­pli­men­tary wine and beer at ev­ery meal. In 2019, AmaWater­ways ex­pands its award-win­ning fleet by three, with the AmaMora on the Rhine River; the AmaDouro, sail­ing the Douro River; and the ex­tra­or­di­nary AmaMagna, glid­ing on the Danube. At nearly twice the width of tra­di­tional river ships, AmaMagna fea­tures suites that mea­sure 355-710 sq. ft. and ac­count for more than 50% of ac­com­mo­da­tions. AmaMagna also boasts four unique din­ing venues, an ex­pan­sive Zen Well­ness Stu­dio, a Wa­ter Sports Plat­form and an Ex­clu­sive Concierge Golf Pro­gram.

Im­mer­sive, Trans­for­ma­tive and Un­for­get­table

Whether you wish to ex­plore Europe, South­east Asia or Africa, AmaWater­ways of­fers an in­cred­i­ble ar­ray of itin­er­ar­ies in 2019. More than 60 ex­pertly guided winethemed cruises visit sto­ried cel­lars and world-renowned vine­yards from France’s iconic Bor­deaux re­gion to Aus­tria’s Wachau Val­ley to the Douro Val­ley in Por­tu­gal and Spain. Get swept up in the magic of time­less tra­di­tions and daz­zling lights on our hol­i­day cruises, like our new Christ­mas Mar­kets on the Danube. And each night, en­joy mes­mer­iz­ing per­for­mances by lo­cal en­ter­tain­ers, in­clud­ing mu­si­cians and folk­lore dancers.

Jour­ney One Step Fur­ther
