Travelling with AMA Waterways is not just a passage, but a privilege. The AmaPrima lives up to the expectation set for her by previous members of this phenomenal fleet, providing guests with exceptional luxury, sublime comfort, and enriching excursions from the onset and throughout. Passengers can sit back and relax, secure in the knowledge that they are being guided through the experience of a lifetime.
Similar to her sister ship, the AmaCerto, the AmaPrima’s design is inspired by the magnificent ocean yachts that exude the same classic elegance. Joining the AMA Waterways fleet as recent as 2013, the AmaPrima includes modern luxuries and unique innovations such as the enchanting glass elevator, the heated pool with a swim-up bar, and most staterooms containing the ‘Twin Balcony’ concept, both a French and a full step-out balcony from which guests can marvel at their surroundings.
AmaPrima has been built to offer an accommodation type to suit every guest. The range begins with the delightful staterooms situated on the Piano Deck, measuring 160 square feet. Each cabin includes a phenomenally comfortable bed, an interactive television with complimentary movies, ample storage space and a luxurious marble bathroom, providing a space where guests can return from their exciting excursion to a realm of peace and tranquillity.
The Violin and Cello Deck are the locations of the 170 square feet staterooms including a French Balcony, a sliding glass panel introducing the fresh air of the outdoors and a new sense sensation to guests’ experience. Indulge one step further with 210-235 square feet of floor space, and include the superlative feature of a two-seater veranda from which passengers can sit back and relax as the wonders of Europe passes by.
The suites are the largest category of accommodation, encompassing 300 square feet of comfort. With a larger balcony and the inclusion of the only marble-clad bathtubs on board, the suites provide exclusivity at its finest.
Located on the Cello Deck, the Main Restaurant is the most elegant of venues in which guests will enjoy a fine dining experience, complete with a dedicated Wine Bar to ensure every meal is impeccably complimented by the perfect beverage.
Taste culinary masterpieces from the expert chefs, with the only liner to be a member of the gastronomic society, Chaîne des Rôtisseurs. The sophisticated menus are designed to reflect the local region, so that passengers can truly connect with their surroundings through all five senses.
Experience the exclusive by dining at the Chef’s Table Restaurant, Erlebnis, an intimate affair with seats for only 24 guests each evening. Watch a master at work as four fantastic courses are created in an almost-open kitchen, allowing you to discover the ultimate taste sensations.
A further attraction of travelling with AMA Waterways is benefitting from their exceptional ability of organising not only informative, but entertaining walking tours of the area. Go at your own pace, with a ‘Gentle Walkers’ tour available for those who want to take their time, or an ‘Active Walkers’ tour for those who want to cover more ground and see more attractions. There is even a ‘Late Starters’ tour for those who struggle to leave the sanctity of their cabins. An advantage of travelling with such a modern vessel is that guests are supplied with the latest pieces of technology. A Quietvox is a wireless audio transmitter that enables passengers to hear what the expert tour guide is saying, no matter where they are standing.
Opt for a more independent exploration of the area, and take advantage of the complimentary bicycles available. Ideal for cycling through, picturesque cobblestone streets and awe-inspiring 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.
Energise your day by spending some time in the well-equipped Fitness Centre on board, before indulging in some much-needed pampering in the Massage, Beauty and Hair Salon. The fully trained masseuse will invigorate and revitalise you with the finest products and treatments, before a visit to the Beauty Salon will leave you feeling refreshed before you re-join your fellow passengers upstairs.
Enjoy a drink in the Observational Lounge, suitably named due to its wide windows which showcase the fantastic scenery outdoors. Alternatively, cosy up with a book next to the faux-fireplace in the library.
The Sun Deck is a sanctuary above a sanctuary, providing a sun catchers’ dream with multiple lounges, a heated pool, and a hot tub in which guests can sip from their favourite cocktail from the bar just footsteps away.
