Explore by Region

Allow the gentle current of Europe’s most legendary rivers to carry you through France, Germany, Hungary and beyond as we capture the essence of each region through its unique history, cultural traditions, architecture, delicious food and wine, and so much more.


Sail along the iconic Seine River through romantic Paris, venture to the historic D-Day landing beaches of Normandy, sip world-renowned Beaujolais wines and visit idyllic châteaux while cruising the Rhône and Saône rivers. You’ll also discover the exceptional worlds of artists such as Monet and Van Gogh, savor French delicacies from macarons to truffles to cheese, and bike along scenic paths.


Glide past more than forty castles along the Rhine River’s banks, be treated to an exclusive visit to Lahneck Castle in Germany and cruise along Amsterdam’s storied canals before reaching the Rhine’s main tributaries: the vineyard-clad Moselle River, the “best-kept secret” in river cruising, and the Main River, which cuts through storybook villages and is home to the impressive Main-Danube Canal.


Cruise through thousands of years of history, where castles were built and kings and queens were crowned. The Danube River has inspired artists and musicians for centuries. The last two segments of this journey take you through four magnificent capitals – Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Belgrade – and off-the-beaten-path wonders in countries such as Croatia, Serbia and Romania, inviting you to find your own inspiration on this legendary waterway.

 A family-owned company celebrating 18 years on the river, AmaWaterways offers unforgettable river cruises with 25 ships sailing Europe’s Danube, Rhine, Moselle, Main, Rhône, Saône (2021), Seine, Garonne, Dordogne, Dutch and Belgian Waterways and Douro Rivers, Asia’s Mekong and Africa’s Chobe and Nile Rivers (2021).


Insider Tip

AmaWaterways is proud to be the only river cruise line inducted into La Chaine des Rotisseurs, one of the world's most prestigious culinary organizations.



We are very proud of our AmaKristina being the first river ship in the industry to receive the Green Award Certification. We also have our 18 river ships now recognized with the Green Award include AmaBella, AmaCello, AmaCerto, AmaDante, AmaDolce, AmaKristina, AmaLea, AmaLyra, AmaMagna, AmaMora, AmaPrima, AmaReina, AmaSerena, AmaSonata, AmaStella, AmaVenita, AmaVerde and AmaViola. (Ships in Portugal are not part of this certification.)

The Green Award program is an independent accreditation process for ocean vessels, inland barges and river cruise ships. The certificate is a mark for ships that demonstrate high safety and environmental standards.

Additionally, the AmaMagna launched in 2019 with an innovative 10-engine configuration designed to reduce overall fuel consumption by up to 20 percent.

Also, AmaWaterways has replaced individual single-use toiletries with soap/shampoo dispensers, replaced plastic straws with paper ones, added glass water bottles in all staterooms, and is testing the use of recyclable water containers made mostly of renewable resources to replace plastic water bottles during excursions.
