It’s not just about the way your soul ignites when you see the Eiffel Tower. Or how you feel when you’re gazing up at Vienna’s Imperial Schonbrunn Palace. No, an AmaWaterways journey is about so much more than visiting stunning destinations around the world. It’s about the experience of getting there aboard the most unique river cruises on the market.
Moments after stepping aboard one of their state-of-the-art vessels, you’re greeted by a gracious crew who escorts you to your deluxe stateroom—where plush down bedding, contemporary designs and private balconies are ready for enjoyment. Unpack and unwind before meeting fellow passengers for a welcome reception in the custom-designed lounge, where the cruise manager presents you with Champagne and a scarlet rose. If you like complimentary fine wines served with a lavish dinner in an exquisite setting, this evening will tickle your fancy.
Don’t be surprised at lunch the next day when the waiter remembers that you like balsamic vinaigrette served on the side of your salad. This proactive approach to exceeding expectations is something AmaWaterways is known for. Their crew-to-guest ratio is higher than other river cruises, so they’re able to anticipate the needs of each guest. Whether it’s returning from an excursion to find bottled water in your room or being surprised when the cruise manager brings a flaming dessert over for your anniversary, AmaWaterways is dedicated to showing every guest that they’re a VIP (very important passenger).
Of course, VIPs have access to the most scrapbook-worthy sightseeing, tours and excursions but, in between the action, there’s free time for guests to relax as they see fit. They can get pampered with a massage, hop on a bicycle to explore riverside pathways or even catch a few rays on the sun deck and sip on some Riesling in the pool’s swim-up bar. After all, this may be the only time your clients ever get to see centuries-old castles while lounging in their bathing suits.
Days filled with immersive tours and free-time luxuries sure do work up an appetite, and AmaWaterways is prepared to spoil guests with award-winning cuisine at their stylish dining venues. Just one bite of tonight’s herb-encrusted lamb filet prepared by master chefs will make you understand why they’re renowned for an unparalleled dining experience.
And, just think—this is merely a glimpse into all of the unique experiences offered on board. Because AmaWaterways believes it’s not just about where you go. It’s how you get there that matters.
