AmaDagio Overview

AmaWaterways' AmaDagio launched in 2006 as the first custom-built river cruise ship for the line. The river boat has since been joined by nearly identical sister ships AmaDolce and AmaLyra (2009), AmaCello and AmaDante (2008), and AmaLegro (2007). The vessels sail itineraries along France's Rhone and Saone Rivers.

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

Cruising is nearly all-inclusive. Beyond the standards -- food, cabin, entertainment -- there's beer and wine with dinner, unlimited Internet access and guided tours in each port. There are also about 20 bikes available for exploring onshore.

Standard cabins are 170 square feet, a healthy size for a river cruise industry where cabins are typically in the 150-square-feet range (AmaDagio also boasts four 255-square-foot suites). 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.

AmaDagio has two lounges -- a large main lounge at the bow and a more intimate lounge located at the stern -- that offer panoramic views of Europe. There's also a sun deck with whirlpool. Other onboard amenities include an elevator, small fitness area and a treatment room.
