AmaDolce Overview

AmaWaterways' 148-passenger AmaDolce debuted in 2009, and is joined by nearly identical sister ships AmaLyra (2009), AmaDante (2008), AmaCello (2008), AmaLegro (2007) and AmaDagio (2006). The fleet sails itineraries along Europe's great waterways, including the Rhine, Mosel, Main and Danube.

Here's what you can expect on an AmaDolce cruise:

The line offers nearly all-inclusive cruising. Beyond the cruise ship standards –- food, accommodation, entertainment -- there's wine and beer with dinner, unlimited Internet use and guided tours in each port. There are also about 20 bikes available for exploring onshore.

Standard cabins are 170 square ft., a healthy size for a river cruise industry where cabins are typically in the 150-square-ft. range. All cabins have "Infotainment" setups, basically flat-screen TV's with Internet access, movie and music libraries, bow and navigational cams and more. 82 percent of cabins feature a French balcony, a sliding glass door with railing. Cabins on the lower Piano deck feature picture windows right at the water line instead of French balconies.

There are two lounges on AmaDolce -- a large main lounge at the bow and a more intimate lounge located aft -- that offer panoramic views of Europe, as well as a sun deck with whirlpool. Other onboard amenities include an elevator, small fitness area and a treatment room.

We decided to book the AmaWaterways's "Europe's Rivers & Castles" trip as it combined 2 nights in Prague, 7 nights on the Main and Rhine rivers and ending with 3 nights in Paris. I had visited Europe on business before I retired but my spouse ...continue
