AmaWaterways Experience

Family owned and operated for more than 20 years, AmaWaterways offers unparalleled river cruise experiences on 25 ships sailing through legendary rivers in Europe, Asia, and Africa. Known for their European heritage and pioneering spirit, AmaWaterways leads the industry in innovation, highlighted by the announcement of their history-making 45- and 46-night Seven River Journeys, their new Heritage on the River experiences in partnership with Ancestry, and launching a new river cruise destination and eco-friendly ship on Colombia’s Magdalena River in 2024. 

AmaWaterways’ award-winning ships offer the luxury of space yet accommodate an average of just 150 guests. 20 ships boast the prestigious Green Award for industry-leading safety, quality, and environmental performance. The fleet is also recognized for its membership in renowned culinary institutions La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs and Tables et Auberges de France, always serving the freshest locally-sourced cuisine, paired with complimentary fine wine with lunch and dinner onboard. A variety of included small-group excursions are available, from tours for gentle walkers, to guided hikes and bike rides, to immersive Special Interest Tours like cooking demonstrations. AmaWaterways also ensures guests’ ability to enhance their best selves, offering complimentary daily fitness classes led by a professional Wellness Host on most ships in Europe and on the Mekong River.

In 2020, AmaWaterways proudly became the only U.S.-based river cruise company to successfully sail with enhanced health and safety protocols. They quickly adopted the most flexible policies to ensure guests’ peace of mind, announced complimentary sailings for Frontline Medical Heroes, and released their first-ever music video to lift the spirits of their guests and travel partners. At the heart of AmaWaterways is their extraordinarily warm and welcoming crew, who always go above and beyond to ensure every guest has a memorable experience.
