More about AmaWaterways New Year offer

The luxury of space

AmaWaterways' intimate and contemporary fleet feature high design and the luxury of personal space, all the while accommodating an average of just 156 guests – fewer than on many traditional river ships. Spacious and uncrowded, you can expect elegantly-appointed staterooms and suites with the likes of their signature view-enhancing twin balconies, alongside a host of standout amenities, from sun-deck pools to complimentary WiFi and a host of award-winning dining experiences, more of which below.

Innovative new ships

In 2019, their innovative new ship. AmaMagna, was recognised by TIME Magazine as one of the 'World’s Greatest Places', offering enhanced personal space with more than 50% luxury suite accommodations as well as four unique dining venues, a chic onboard cinema and an expansive Zen Wellness Studio. In 2024, they also welcome the stunning AmaLilia, designed especially for exploring Egypt’s Nile River, and the AmaMagdalena and AmaMelodia which will offer genuinely unique cruises on Colombia's Magdalena river. 


AmaMagna

Exceptional, locally inspired dining

With membership of the prestigious French culinary society La Chaine des Rotisseurs, food and drink play a huge role in the AmaWaterways experience, and guests can expert expertly crafted menus from talented chefs which feature exquisite, locally inspired cuisine. Aside from the delicious breakfasts and gourmet lunches and dinners, there's the chance to experience the Chef's Table, included in the cost of all European cruises and enjoyed at least once during your voyage, as standard. Here, you'll have the unique chance to watch on as your multi-course meal is created in front of you, accompanied by fine wines selected just for the occasion. Indeed, unlimited fine wines, beer and soft drinks are included as a matter of course.
