Food & Drink

When you’re not busy in port exploring some of the world’s most mesmerising cities, there is a wealth of ways to relax and enjoy onboard. Take a refreshing dip in the pool whilst enjoying the views, treat yourself to a soothing massage or get pampered in the hair salon ready for an evening of entertainment. Those who are keen to maintain their fitness whilst on holiday can head to the fully equipped gym or take part in an exercise class such such as yoga. Whilst in port, guests will be delighted to find that a selection of tours and experiences are included such as knotting a bretzel (German for pretzel) in Wertheim and going bratwurst and beer tasting at the oldest brewery in Nuremberg.


Enjoy leisurely evenings onboard with a selection of entertainment from contemporary piano performances to live Bavarian music. In many destinations the evenings entertainment is inspired by the destination you’ll find yourself in. As well as live performances, guests can strike up conversation with like-minded travellers or enjoy premium wines and spirits in one of the bars and lounges whilst peacefully watching the world go by.

Natalia says "Leading the way in river cruising. With the introduction of the Amamagna, a double width River Cruise vessel which will allow more luxurious public areas and more staterooms with full outside balconies, Amamora to join the fleet on the Rhine and AmaDouro to join her Sister on the Douro River will expand their revolutionary fleet of river cruisers to 23."
