where LUXURY meets AUTHENTICITY
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.
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.
