Unique Dining Experiences

Food is a important part of each day on tour and Tauck make every effort to ensure each meal is an experience built around you, whether on board or ashore. Unusually for River cruises the main dining room offers flexible dinning times for dinner rather than one large sitting for the entire ship, and a choice of dining venues onboard.

The Compass Rose, surrounded by panoramic windows, is the main dining room and serves guests for breakfast, lunch and dinnner.

Arthur's at the aft of the ship is a more casual, bistro style dining venue featuring a 180° opening glass wall. Classic favourites for lunch and dinner and alternative lighter breakfast are available.

A number of itineraries also include fantastic dining experiences off the river boat. Whether a trendy city restaurants or exclusive evening in a private royal palace you can rest assured you will have an experience to remember.

Al fresco dining is also available on the sundeck when the weather is fine.

Complimentary snacks are served from 10am to midnight with fresh fruit and cookies always available.

Tauck tours are truly all-inclusive with unlimited complimentary beverages onboard, including quality wines, premium spirits and champagne as well as coffee, tea, water and soft drinks.

Any special dietary needs can be accommodated with advance notice.

What We Think

AMA Waterways are a top level river cruise operator with their own fleet of beautiful river cruise ships on the European rivers. Outside of Europe AMA Waterways also offer cruises under their AmaVoyages umbrella where they charter ships for their cruises. Whilst not on AMA owned ships these itineraries are all still operated to a very high standard on some truly lovely ships.

Dining is of a very good quality, amongst the best on the rivers, all be it tuned to the North American palette. Standards of service on board are really very good and high quality excursions complete the package

We receive really excellent feedback from previous passengers on these cruises and would have no hesitation in recommending them as one of te best river cruise operators on the rivers.

What Others Say

Berlitz - Best River Cruise Ships

AMA waterways ships have just scooped the top 11 places in the recently released Berlitz River Cruising in Europe guide. Ships were assessed under 5 categories, Hardware, Accommodation, Cuisine, Service and Miscellaneous with AmaPrima, the newest of the AMA Waterways Concerto class ships rated, taking the top spot.

We're not sure we agree with everything the author, Douglas Ward has to say in this guide - but certainly would see AMA up at the top.

La Chaine des Rotisseurs

Every AmaWaterways vessel cruising in Europe is an official member of La Chaine des Rotisseurs. Membership is considered an achievement of world-class culinary acumen.

AmaWaterways is the only river cruise line invited to join one of the world's most prestigious culinary organizations founded in 1950 in Paris.

Onboard Entertainment

After dinner, you are invited to enjoy engaging evening entertainment. You are sure to be enthralled as different performers come on board each night. It's the perfect complement to your daily discoveries.

Small Group Excursions

Set your own pace on shore excursions and the full attention of your guide. AmaWaterways ensures that you're treated with personalized attention, on land as well as on the river. The complimentary Small Group Shore Excursions provide a world-class tour in every destination using the very best local guides.

Wherever possible, an Active Walkers group, for those interested in covering more ground, and a Late Starter group for those who prefer to sleep in is also on offer.

Complimentary Bicycles & Tours

AmaWaterways originated the concept of putting bicycles aboard river cruise ships in Europe. The idea sprung from the fact that so many of Europe's rivers are lined with paths that are perfect for pedaling. There are more than two dozen bicycles and plenty of safety helmets on board that are free for you to use. The bicycles give you the freedom to venture out and explore the riverside bikeways, or, meander through quaint cobblestone streets. The bikes are set up and ready for use as soon as the ship docks.

Health & Beauty

As you sail through Europe's most beautiful and tranquil scenery, why not take the opportunity to pamper yourself? There are an expert hair stylist, masseuse and beauty therapist at your disposal for the duration of the cruise. Nestled in a peaceful corner of the ship, next to a well equipped Fitness Center, the Massage, Beauty and Hair Salon offers a variety of treatments using only the finest products available. Pamper your body and rejuvenate your spirit while you're on board with AmaWaterways.

AmaWaterways Staff


The AmaWaterways Standard

Excellent Service from AmaWaterways Staff

With AmaWaterways, you'll find an exceptional vacation experience. In addition you'll enjoy the finest onboard service of any river cruise line. After ten years in business, we believe that a big factor in our award-winning success is superior service and attention.

Our passengers consistently rate our personalized, professional and friendly service as a highlight of their cruise. How do we know? They tell us. Passengers aboard every AmaWaterways ship complete a detailed questionnaire at the end of their cruise, and we diligently read every single one of them. It provides continuous feedback on our passengers' experience, and enables us to guide our onboard staff. We can praise the staff for a job well done, and make quick adjustments before the start of the next cruise.

At AmaWaterways, customer service is our top priority.
