What sets AmaWaterways apart?
From the outset, you’ll feel right at home in the comfortable, well-designed cabins found on any of the line’s 17 riverboats. Most come with their own balcony, allowing you to enjoy a nice, sunny breeze as you travel down any of several beautiful, well-known rivers. If you’re in the mood to relax, the riverboats do offer spas, fitness centers, and several lounges that provide Wi-Fi, movies, and other fun, though you’ll probably spend a lot of time lounging on the large sundecks and enjoying the beautiful scenery passing by! After all, the breathtaking landscapes and gorgeous architecture are some of the perks of river cruising. Imagine watching the sunset while cruising down the romantic Danube with towering castles passing by on either side. *Sigh*
But let’s be real: there’s a lot of fun to be had on shore, too. AmaWaterways offers daily extensive sight-seeing tours. Charming locals and beautiful little towns await you on shore. From architecture to local cuisine, you'll have a packed schedule that will allow you to take in as much of the local culture and attractions as possible. Your group will break up into "families" to explore your new surroundings, each led by a knowledgeable guides will lead you through the cities and towns. Not only does this allow you to learn, but it creates a fun sense of camaraderie among the passengers – and don’t we all love making new friends?
If you're more of a fast-paced, tread-your-own-path type of traveler, you can also grab one of the ship's bikes and peddle off to your own destination. The possibilities are many, but at the end of each day you know you'll have a great cultural experience and bang for your buck.
On board, the local experience continues with the dining experience. The line does a good job of introducing you to local cuisine with delicious meals. You get gourmet breakfast buffets, and after your excursions you're met with menus including fresh seafood and produce, high quality meats, and other delectable foods. You get unlimited local wines and complimentary cappuccinos with each meal, too. YUM. Local musical acts, talent shows, and other entertainment adds to the onboard fun. The staff is superb, making you feel right at home, and they’ll make sure you get the most out of your travel experience!
