AmaSonata Overview

AmaWaterways' European family continues to grow with the launch of AmaSonata (and its twin sister AmaReina), identical siblings to AmaPrima and AmaCerto, both launched in 2013.

The most innovative design feature, introduced on the two earlier vessels, is the twin balcony concept, with cabins on the Violin and Cello decks featuring both a French balcony and a separate outside balcony. There are also more dining options like Mozart Cafe, in the style of a traditional Viennese coffee shop, and Chaine des Rotisseurs culinary creations linked to the international fine wine and food organization of the same name.

There are 82 staterooms across nine categories, starting with the 160-square-foot cabins with fixed windows on the Piano Deck. Standard cabins with balconies are 170 to 235 square feet, and there are four 350-square-foot suites on the Violin Deck. All cabins are outfitted with the fleet's "Infotainment" system, which includes complimentary Internet access, first-run Hollywood films and a music library. Other standard cabin amenities are flat-screen TVs, bathrobes, multijet showerheads, air-conditioning and complimentary water that's replenished daily. The suites each have a bathtub and separate shower, a sofa and two chairs, twin balconies and a minibar.

AmaSonata has a main lounge, with a bar, piano, dance floor and panoramic windows to enjoy the passing scenery. The other public areas include a sun deck with a retractable roof, a heated pool with a whirlpool and a swim-up bar, a walking track and bicycles for independent passengers who want to go out and explore by themselves. Other onboard amenities include a library, fitness room, beauty and hair salon, and a glass-sided lift.

Dining options aboard AmaSonata are the main restaurant, which showcases the Chaine des Rotisseurs gourmet menu, the Chef's Table with its own private chef, and Mozart Cafe for lighter bites and snacks. On select days, passengers can enjoy lunch outdoors on the Sun Deck.

AmaSonata sails seven itineraries on the Danube and Rhine, and prices -- available with or without air travel -- include complimentary wine with meals, free Wi-Fi and use on the onboard bikes.
