This 156-passenger AmaWaterways river ship debuted in 2018 and was inspired by luxury yachts with spacious staterooms; most rooms onboard boast the line’s signature twin balconies. Also like a luxury liner is the fact that there’s plenty of space for socializing, ample outdoor areas, and lots of inclusions.
Guests can be found mingling in the lounge, where you’ll find lectures and demonstrations by day and cocktails paired with nightly entertainment in the evening (the piano player is especially lovely). There’s an on-board massage room, a hair salon, and a small gym. A heated outdoor pool with a swim-up bar is the cherry on top. Once docked and on shore, excursions have been created for all types; guests can opt for gentle to active outings and there’s an on-board fleet of complimentary bicycles that’s a nice perk.
