AmaDolce (APT) Overview

Built in 2009, AmaDolce is equipped for enjoying Europe's great waterways, with a lounge at the back for panoramic views of the sights along the Rhine, Mosel, Main and Danube rivers. Another great vantage point is the top deck, where passengers can relax in a hot tub, laze on a sun lounger or play a game on the giant chessboard.
