About AmaWaterways

From the beginning, AmaWaterways' goal was to create a river cruise company that they themselves would enjoy. That meant the highest-quality, locally sourced food and wine; elegantly appointed ships with staterooms offering maximum views to enjoy the ever-changing countryside; and a crew who goes above and beyond, treating every guest like they are part of the Ama family.

With that in mind, for 18 years, Ama has been building one-of-a-kind ships with added comforts and conveniences ranging from our signature view-enhancing twin balconies to the one-and-only Chef’s Table specialty restaurant to their award-winning AmaMagna – redefining the river cruise experience.
