Complimentary bicycles and bike tours

AmaWaterways originated the concept of putting bicycles aboard river cruise ships in Europe. The idea sprung from the fact that so many of Europe's rivers are lined with paths that are perfect for pedaling. AmaLyra carries more than two dozen bicycles and plenty of safety helmets that are free for you to use. The bicycles give you the freedom to venture out and explore the riverside bikeways. Or, meander through quaint cobblestone streets. The bikes are set up and ready for use as soon as the ship docks.

Massage & beauty

As you sail through Europe's most beautiful and tranquil scenery, why not take the opportunity to pamper yourself? Enjoy the services of the onboard hair stylist, masseuse and beauty therapist at your disposal for the duration of the cruise.
