  • Your luggage handles will be sanitized before delivery to your stateroom.

Whenever weather permits, these small-group classes will be held on our spacious open-air Sun Decks.

Cruise with AmaWaterways - with extensions in Paris and Barcelona - was excellent. Main suggestions - provide more time at some stops along the Rhine River such as Nimes or Avignon. Also provide meals for first evening in new city - especially arrival at first stop in Paris when travelers are jet-lagged.
