AmaWaterways

Award Winning River Cruise Operator

AmaWaterways operates the finest fleet and provides all-inclusive river cruise vacations on the great waterways of Europe, Russia, Vietnam and Cambodia. With an innovative product and rapidly-growing fleet of custom-designed ships, the line enjoys a reputation as the leader in river cruising.

AmaWaterways was founded in 2002 by Rudi Schreiner, Kristin Karst and Jimmy Murphy. All Three brought tremendous experience, knowledge and dedication to the venture. Rudi was one of river cruising's pioneers, having introduced the modern-day river cruise concept to the market. Kristin brought with her vast sales and customer service experience. And Jimmy Murphy is the founder and former owner of Brendan Vacations. Their combined expertise and passion for the river cruise business results in a river cruise vacation experience that will exceed expectations. With more than 20 different itineraries to choose from, the river cruise vacation of a lifetime awaits with AmaWaterways!

When we founded AmaWaterways ten years ago, our motivation was to provide the most exceptional river cruise experience. Our company has grown substantially and our commitment to excellence continues to thrive. AmaWaterways leads the way in river cruising thanks to our fleet of customized ships, expansive amenities and personalized service. Our pioneering features include offerings such as French balconies, complimentary in-stateroom Internet, WiFi access, award-winning dining plus guided bicycle tours. Our 3 newest ships extend these innovative concepts even further by offering larger staterooms with twin balconies, multiple dining venues and more. Exciting new itinerary highlights and theme cruises such as our "Culinary Delights" shore excursions and the Floriade Expo, which only occurs once every 10 years in the Netherlands, make 2012 the perfect year for river cruising.

We're extremely proud that our fleet of vessels has grown to twelve. New for 2012 is the 164-passenger AmaCerto, our largest and most imaginative ship. Inspired by classic luxury yachts, she features our exclusive twin balcony staterooms, multiple indoor and outdoor dining venues, a heated swimming pool, a stunning glass elevator and much more. The AmaCerto joins an award-winning fleet in Europe that includes the AmaVerde, AmaBella, AmaDolce, AmaLyra, AmaDante, AmaCello and AmaLegro. For the first time, our beautiful AmaDagio will cruise the Rhone River in Southern France, providing the signature experience our passengers have come to expect from an AmaWaterways cruise. In Russia, the redesigned AmaKatarina debuted in May 2011, with balconies in more than 70 percent of her staterooms. And the new AmaLotus joined the elegant La Marguerite in offering delightful Mekong River cruises as part of our "Vietnam, Cambodia and the Riches of the Mekong" program.

We continue to evolve the river cruising experience every year. Let us transport you to the heart of a destination, surrounded by a panorama of history. In Europe, discover the cultures of a dozen countries linked together from the North Sea to the Black Sea. Immerse yourself in a Provencal landscape that inspired painters, poets and writers. Marvel at the monuments of Imperial Russia, or explore the ancient wonders of the Mekong. Our passion for providing distinctive and enriching river cruise vacations is stronger than ever. We hope to welcome you aboard soon.
