What is AmaWaterways?

The family-owned river-cruise company redefines cruising for the 21st century. On AmaWaterways' ships (which hold on average fewer than 200 people), guests can indulge in nourishing food, participate in complimentary daily fitness classes, enjoy a massage...the list goes on. On the AmaMagna, there's even a pickleball court. On land, opt for a complimentary guided hiking or biking excursion. AmaWaterways makes staying active easy — and fun.
