Introduced in 2009 and sailing through Europe, AmaLyra quickly earned a ‘Best New River Cruise Ship’ distinction and is adorned with contemporary artwork throughout the entire luxurious vessel. Marvel at ever-changing scenery from a reclining wooden lounge chair on the Sun Deck, not far from an inviting outdoor whirlpool. Or, relax in spacious accommodations which feature an in-room ‘Infotainment System’ complete with first-run Hollywood movies, a music library, and more. Guests can escape to enjoy the lovely scenery in their choice of two lounges, including one near the aft of the ship which offers stunning panoramic views and catch a breath of fresh air or take an energizing walk along the walking track the Sun Deck.
