AmaWaterways
An AmaWaterways river cruise is about more than the destination - it's the journey. We invite you to take one of our European river cruises, Asia river cruises, or Africa river cruises and see the world in luxury and comfort.

River cruising through Europe with AmaWaterways is an excellent way to explore a destination. Discover local culture and sights on included tours, and then hop back on your luxurious river cruise ship and sail to the next stunning city or charming town. Included in the fares of our river cruises are shore excursions in every port of call; all dining on board (including The Chef's Table specialty restaurant); fine wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner; internet access and Wi-Fi; and bicycles that you can use to explore on your own or join our guided bike tours.

In Europe, you can take one of our Danube river cruises, or one of our Rhine river cruises. We also offer river cruises in France and Portugal. We hope that you enjoy exploring our many itineraries in Europe, Asia and Africa, and look forward to welcoming you aboard soon.

AmaWaterways was founded in 2002 by three families, but our river cruise story began well before that. President Rudi Schreiner was born in Vienna, at the heart of the Danube. His love of design drew him to architecture, but his even greater love of travel drew him to places far and wide. In 1975, he traveled to South America for a journalism assignment on the Amazon. It was here that he designed his first ship, using what he could find to build a raft that would take him up and down the river during the next 7 months. Soon thereafter he started working in travel, creating unique tour experiences in Europe.

Since 2002, AmaWaterways has offered unforgettable river cruises aboard award-winning ships sailing legendary rivers to the heart of Europe, Southeast Asia and Africa.

Family-owned and operated, we pride ourselves on our passion for river cruising, strong partnerships with our dedicated travel agent partners, the unparalleled service of our staff and crew, our exquisite La Chaine des Rotisseurs dining, and our innovations, which range from staterooms with unique "twin balconies" to included shore excursions featuring active biking and hiking options. Our most recent innovation, the extraordinary AmaMagna, debuts on the Danube River in May 2019 with over 50% suite accommodations, four unique dining venues, an Exclusive Concierge Golf Program and groundbreaking Water Sports Platform, among several other innovations.

With the highest-rated ships in Europe according to the third edition of Berlitz: River Cruising in Europe & the USA, AmaWaterways has received countless honors and accolades including Town & Country River Cruise Awards as "Best Overall," "Best for Food," "Best for Onboard Activities" and "Best for On-Shore Activities," as well as 2017 AFAR and Recommend magazine Reader's Choice Awards for "Best River Cruise Line."
