Exploring the world by sea and river provides you with a different perspective on the world. Cruising across the Atlantic Ocean, island hopping in the Caribbean, or sailing through the narrow rivers of Europe and Asia is an incredible experience never to be forgotten. The cruise lines do their best to make your trip a mix of luxurious leisure and authentic travel experiences, which has led to several acknowledgements in October 2017.
Along with many other awards, AmaWaterways was named River Cruise Company of the Year 2017 by the American Automobile Association (AAA), AAA’s Best Member Service Award for the overall cruise category, and 2017 Cruise Partner of the Year by Canadian Automobile Association (CAA).

The love of luxurious travel experiences is shining through their fleet, providing cruises of a lifetime with their top priority being you.
