Cruise News - AMAWaterways Enjoys 10th Birthday


July 25- 2012 : AmaWaterways Celebrates a Decade of River Cruising

For the past ten years, award-winning AmaWaterways has explored the waters of more than 20 countries. From the quaint medieval towns of Europe to the hot, exotic locations on Africa’s Chobe River, AmaWaterways has provided a host of amazing travelling opportunities for cruisers.

With its original cruise itineraries being based in Europe, AmaWaterways quickly expanded over ten years to offer itineraries including Russia, Portugal, Vietnam & Cambodia and Africa.

Awards for Holland America include Condé Nast Traveler’s “Top 20 River Cruise Ships”, TravelAge West’s WAVE Editor’s Pick Award for “Best Overall Cruise Line for River Cruising”, Travel Weekly Gold Magellan Award for “Overall River Cruising”, and Porthole Cruise Magazine Reader’s Choice Award for “Best River Cruise Line”.

AmaWaterways was also the only river cruise line invited to join one of the world’s most prestigious culinary organizations, La Chaine des Rotisseurs.
And there are more exciting things ahead .

In 2013, AmaWaterways plans to launch new ships, including the 108-passenger AmaVida and the 164-passenger AmaPrima, as well as new industry-first itineraries like the 11-day Paris & Normandy cruise.

AmaWaterways’ ships continue to lead the industry with spacious staterooms and suites, Gold-Medal dining, the latest in-room furnishings, flat-panel TVs and individually controlled air-conditioning.

Passengers can stay connected aboard AmaWaterways’ ships with complimentary Internet & Infotainment System with Hollywood movies.

Other amenities include massage and beauty salons, swim-up bars, sun decks, twin balconies, French balconies and on-board entertainment. For passengers wanting to explore the serene paths along the rivers, AmaWaterways offers a fleet of bicycles onboard.
