The bathrooms are designed with technological innovation, with multiple water jets, waterfall or rain shower options, and a thermostat that exceeds 37’C, meaning that guests are able to turned their glass enclosed shower into a secluded steam closet.

Enjoy your welcome bottle of sparkling wine on arrival, as you gaze out of the French balcony and marvel at the sights coasting past.

Experience impeccable service from gracious staff, as you taste the regional sensations delivered by gold medal-winning chefs from the gastronomic food society, Chaîne des Rôtisseurs. For a more informal dining experience, visit the Main Lounge or the Sun Deck where guests can enjoy the pleasures of fresh, al fresco dining. Additionally, regional beer and exquisite local wines are served to perfectly complement your meal.
Of course, one of the main attractions for experiencing a European river-cruise is the opportunity to explore Europe itself. In every port, AMA Waterways organises a range of walking tours with local expert guides. Go at your own pace, by choosing between the gentle walking tour which lends itself to many picture opportunities, an active walk for those wanting to cover more ground, or a late-starter for those who are not quite ready to leave the sublime comfort of their cabin. Thanks to the modern technology on board AmaCello, guests are supplied with a Quietvox, allowing you to hear the knowledgeable guide even when amongst the busy streets by means of earphones. Opt for a more independent exploration of the area, and take advantage of the complimentary bicycles available. Perfect for pedalling, the flat banks lead to picturesque streets and phenomenal countryside. Back on board, regional music performances enhance your experience by capturing the essence of the regional culture, and the witty cruise director provides entertaining commentaries on points of interest as you pass by.
