Complimentary bicycles & 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. 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 an onboard hair stylist, masseuse and beauty therapist at your disposal for the duration of the cruise.

Small group excursions

Set your own pace on shore excursions and enjoy the full attention of your guide. The complimentary small group shore excursions provide a world-class land tour in every destination.
