The basics

AmaWaterways has one of the most modern fleets of 5-star luxury river vessels sailing the rivers of Europe.

We like

Onboard the MS Amabella all outside staterooms with the distinctive “Twin Balcony ” concept. This allows panoramic views from all angles of the stateroom.

What you should know

Each ship has a number of bicycles* that can be used by passengers free of charge to visit small towns. The bicycles give you the freedom to venture out and explore the riverside bikeways.

May we suggest

A French Balcony room or an outside stateroom on the MS Amabella – well worth the extra.
