AmaWaterways: River cruising with the luxury of a 5-star hotel

The custom-designed ships of AmaWaterways ships provide all-inclusive river cruise vacations on the great waterways of Europe, Russia, Vietnam and Cambodia. With an innovative product and rapidly growing fleet of custom-designed ships, the line enjoys a reputation as the leader in high-end river cruising. On board you'll be impressed by the level of service, which is comparable to that found at some of the best hotels on land. 

The “floating hotels” from AmaWaterways are a luxurious way to experience river cruising. Its ships' staterooms are designed with state-of-the-art amenities and layouts that make the best use of space, so kick back and watch the river roll by in style. Cruise foodies will enjoy AmaWaterways' cuisine: It's the only river cruise line invited to join La Chaine des Rotisseurs, an international association of gastronomy. Every AmaWaterways vessel cruising in Europe is an official member, which means a lot of good eats are in store for passengers.

By the way, it's pronounced "amma," so don't sound it out as A-M-A.
