What is it like to sail on a floating boutique hotel, you may ask? Unlike any hospitality experience you have likely had before. With a name like Ama ("Ama" means love), you can be certain that luxury and love are at the heart of each AmaWaterways sailing, and this starts with their award-winning fleet of ships. Here is everything you need to know about AmaWaterways amenities and accommodations: 
The Stateroom
With fewer guests on board, about 150 on most ships, enjoy the luxury of personal space. Staterooms range from 155-350 sq. feet (355-710 sq. feet on AmaMagna). Your stateroom is designed with stylish décor inspired by the destination, and includes luxurious marble-appointed bathrooms, multijet showerheads and plush linens. This sophisticated, contemporary haven serves as your personal oasis for rejuvenation. Most of the staterooms in the Ama fleet feature not just one, but two private balconies — a French balcony and a full outside balcony. Together, they provide a unique panoramic view of the beautiful sights along the river while inviting both fresh air and natural light inside. All staterooms and public areas have a view -- from terraced vineyards to fairytale castles and towering spires, there is always something to see on the river.
AmaWaterways also brings new technology to the fingertips of all their guests to enhance their vacation experience. Travelers sailing on board one of the line’s European vessels have access to its incredible in-room Entertainment-On-Demand center with complimentary high-speed internet, extensive music library, popular new release movies and English-language television programming. Complimentary Wi-Fi is also available in all destinations, allowing you to stay connected if you so desire.
The Amenities
Whatever your vacation goals, the amenities offerings on an AmaWaterways journey are sure to exceed them. Focusing on wellness? Hit the treadmill, lift some weights, enjoy virtual spin or a small group wellness activity led by a professionally trained wellness host. Looking to relax? Enjoy the whirlpool, soak up some rays or take a dip in the refreshing pool with a swim-up bar as you pass by charming villages and other breathtaking scenery. Whether you’d like to dress up for the captain’s special dinner or a night out on the town, luxuriate by getting your hair styled in the salon. When you're not exploring another stunning destination, return to the ship and treat yourself to a bit of pampering with a soothing massage.
The Staff
A proactive approach to exceeding expectations is a hallmark of the AmaWaterways experience. You can rest assured you will be well taken care of throughout your journey by their professionally trained, all English-speaking staff. The genuinely warm and welcoming Ama crew go above and beyond to ensure your journey with AmaWaterways is as memorable as possible. It could be the way you are greeted on board, with a glass of champagne and a scarlet rose from the captain. Maybe it is the waiter that remembers your name and drink of choice at dinner, or the chef at breakfast who knows how you liked your omelet. It could be the Cruise Manager that plans something special for a wedding anniversary, or the refreshing drink and chilled towel that awaits you after a day of sightseeing. The Ama staff is committed to the happiness of their guests, and special touches like these are what really stand out and make you feel like you’re surrounded by family.
