AmaWaterways' 148-passenger AmaDante debuted in 2008. Nearly identical sister ships include AmaLyra and AmaDolce (2009), AmaCello (2008), AmaLegro (2007; retired 2016) and AmaDagio (2006; retired 2016). The boats cruise along Europe's great inland waterways, including the Danube, Rhine, Mosel and Main rivers.

Here's what you can expect on an AmaDante cruise.

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

Standard cabins are 170 square feet. (AmaDante also boasts four 255-square-foot suites.) All cabins have Entertainment-on-Demand 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.

AmaDante 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.

AmaWaterways AmaDante Cruiser Reviews

Amazing crew and staff!

My mother, aunt, cousin, and I spent a week aboard the AMADante as we cruised along the Seine. The excursions were wonderful but I am writing this review about the crew and staff.Read More

Just OK

We chose AMADante because the line purports to have a "gentle walkers" option and the friends who we planned to travel with needed it. They ended up not joining us.Read More

Fantastic Experience from booking to Disembarkation!

The dining on Ama Waterways has a great reputation and the AmaDante exceeded expectations! Breakfast, lunch, tea, dinner and late night snacks were all excellent.Read More

A very good 7-night cruise with a good-spirited crew and Cruise Director

In contrast with Viking, Ama offers 50% single supplement rooms, one or two per ship.Bike touring was easily accommodated because once one got a bike and helmet set up, they were available for the rest of the cruise.Read More
