Whether you are a loyal past guest or are considering river cruising with us for the first time, we thank you for entrusting AmaWaterways with your future river cruise plans. Here are some of the measures we are taking to protect our guests on board and ashore:

Pre-Cruise

  • Prior to boarding, an online health and contact screening questionnaire will be required.

Embarkation

  • At embarkation, guests’ temperatures will be taken with no-contact infrared thermometers. If, for any reason, further testing is required, shoreside medical treatment centers are within close proximity.
  • Your luggage handles will be sanitized before delivery to your stateroom.

On Board

  • Protocols continue to change; however, at this time, guests are required to wear face coverings when moving through public spaces.
  • We will have ample hand sanitizers available throughout the ship and their frequent use is required by all guests and crew.
  • Our crew has implemented enhanced cleaning and disinfecting measures throughout the ship.
  • We use state-of-the-art fan coil air conditioning units; there is no recirculating of air on board our ships.
  • There will be limitations to the number of guests allowed to sail with us.
  • Safety and social distancing will be enhanced throughout our dining room.
  • You will still get plenty of fresh air and exercise as our bicycles, fitness mats and equipment will be thoroughly sanitized after each use. Use of the Fitness Room is by appointment with cleaning time between use. Throughout Europe and Asia, we provide a variety of onboard wellness activities led by professionally trained Wellness Hosts. Whenever weather permits, these small-group classes will be held on our spacious open-air Sun Decks.
  • Non-essential visitors are not permitted on board.

Exploring Ashore

  • Your personal portable Quietvox commentary systems will allow you to hear guides while social distancing.
  • Shore excursions will be conducted in small groups. Guests must use hand sanitizers when getting on and off our coaches that are thoroughly cleaned each morning.
  • In the event that ships are docked side by side, guests will be required to pass over Sun Decks.

Covid has provided many perils for traveling these days, but we truly enjoyed the AMA cruise mainly due to the great expertise of the Cruise Director, whom we had done a cruise with prior. He is amazing at taking a problem and doing a quick solve with the guests not even being aware. There were lots of changes and unexpected challenges that he did work arounds for and the whole crew was fantastic. This cruise is one that is done infrequently compared to AMA's repertoire, but is most delightful and great little towns to see. Highly recommend!

This was my first river cruise, and my only regret is that I've waited as long as I have to do this. The entire AmaWaterways crew -- from the ship captain all the way to the housekeeper -- were outstanding. The ship itself was beautifully decorated for Christmas, and the cabin was well organized and extremely comfortable. I appreciated the variety of available shore excursions, and the local guides were excellent. I'm looking forward to cruising again many times with AmaWaterways.
