Officially voted the Best River Cruise Line in Europe - Berlitz Guide Experience the Luxury of 'More'.....
Most of the staterooms feature not just one, but two private balconies — a French balcony and a full outside balcony. Together, they provide a unique panoramic view of the beautiful sights along the river and maximise the natural light coming in. With twin balconies, you can enjoy the river however you like.
The AMAcerto is your floating sanctuary. With only 162 guests, staterooms are larger and provide more amenities. With fewer people on board, public spaces like restaurants and lounges are never crowded, and accommodations range from 160square feet all the way up to 300 square feet.
More Active Ways to Discover
With a menu of shore excursions in every port of call, you’ll be free to choose from one of several options — all of which are included. There’s always a city tour designed to show you all the renowned highlights and landmarks in grand capitals and charming villages alike. Instead of taking the city tour, indulge in a bratwurst and beer tasting on one of the Special Interest Tours, which are specially designed to place you in the midst of local life. Also on offer are different tour paces: Gentle, regular and active. The choice is yours.
A proactive, personalised approach to exceeding expectations is a hallmark of the AmaWaterways experience. With a staff-to-guest ratio of 1 staff member for every 3 guests, the team always fully dedicate themselves to providing each guests with the highest level of service.
AmaWaterways was invited to be a member of La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs – a prestigious international culinary society – and with good reason. The expert chefs craft menus that feature exquisite, locally-inspired cuisine as well as traditional Western offerings. AmaWaterways is the only river cruise line that has The Chef’s Table, an intimate specialty restaurant where you can watch the chef prepare a lavish dinner right in front of you. Each meal is specially paired with premium local reds and whites from Europe’s renowned wine regions, with new selections each night. There’s also sparkling wine and fresh juice with breakfast, menu service during lunch, as well as delicious tapas and snacks in the Main Lounge between meals. All onboard dining, as well as unlimited wine and beer with lunch and dinner, is included so you can indulge whenever and however you’d like.
