In Europe, AmaWaterways ships cruise the Rhine, Danube, Douro, Main, Moselle, Rhone, Garonne, Dordogne and Seine rivers, along with Dutch and Belgian waterways. AmaWaterways also offers exotic itineraries on Africa's Chobe River and Vietnam and Cambodia's Mekong River. Through these unique sailings and the immersive optional pre- and post-cruise land packages associated with them, travelers can delve into the heart of these destinations with knowledgeable guides who share personal insights into the local history, people and cuisine.

A New Dimension in River Cruising

AmaWaterways expanded its fleet in 2019 by introducing AmaMagna, the most luxurious ship on the Danube. AmaMagna is twice the width of traditional river cruise ships, yet welcomes only 20 percent more guests, allowing generous personal space with five bars, four unique restaurants, an onboard cinema and an expansive Zen Wellness Studio with a juice bar and outdoor spin bikes.
