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.

AMA waterways provided a quality experience. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly.

We booked the cruise and extensions which was 24 days. Evidentially, this trip could have been booked in segments which we were not aware of as the coming and going of various groups was very strange throughout. We started in Prague, always a great adventure. We were to go to Nuremberg, but due to low water were bused to the ship departure, Vilshofen, with options to hit the first two ports we missed by bus as excursions. Other folks joined from Vienna, a large group came onboard, and we were nearly at max going down the river. All but 18 people left at Budapest, including the Cruise Director. At that point we found out the second portion was a Wine Cruise with a different name, new director, and new passengers came aboard bringing us to capacity once again. So this became two cruises, actually, with totally different passengers on each except the original 18. As we continued for the extension, there were 40 of us until the end in Bucharest. One can see how this was rather disfunctional and more like a train ride with customers joining and departing continuously. Never knew who would be at dinner the next night. This may work from a business point, but very confusing to those that just purchased a single cruise with extensions and enjoyed meeting folks as we sailed down the river. Had I known there would be such a revolving door would have researched better and re-evaluated my choice. AMA, as always did a superb job, but the logistics of this whole adventure must have been a nightmare and stressful for the staff. Vacations need continuity.

All the arrangements were made through Affordable Tours and everything went as planned.

The trip was outstanding. Very professional staff and excellent accommodations.

River cruise with AmaWaterways was great. No problems. It was a great cruise.

Everything was included in the price of this tour including the off shore excursions. There were so many excursions that the week went by very quick.

It was freezing cold and yet still a fantastic vacation!
