About Our Ships.

R. Crusoe & Son and AmaWaterways partner to bring you on a cruise along the Danube River aboard a number of great ships, all of them members of the AmaWaterways fleet.

AmaLea, AmaStella, & AmaViola.


AmaViola passing Durnstein.

These elegant 156-passenger river ships have luxuriously appointed staterooms between 155 and 235 square feet and suites of about 350 square feet. Most accommodations have twin balconies—both a French (indoor) and an outdoor balcony—to maximize views of the surrounding scenery.

     On the Sun Deck, take a dip in a heated pool, enjoy the swim-up bar, take a lap around the track.
Meet friends old and new in the stunning Main Lounge, where nightly entertainment also takes place.  
Other amenities on board? A fitness room and a fleet of onboard bicycles to use on your own or on a guided tour.     

     Please note: Elevators on AmaLea do not access the Sun Deck. Elevators on AmaViola and AmaStella do not access the Sun Deck or the Piano Deck.

AmaSonata & AmaCerto.


Aboard AmaSerena.

Inspired by classic ocean yachts, these vessels offer spacious, elegantly appointed staterooms between 160 and 290 square feet and suites that run about 300 square feet.

     Most accommodations have twin (indoor and outdoor) balconies, affording magnificent views of the scenery along the route.

     Socializing happens primarily in the Main Lounge on the Violin Deck. That’s also where evening entertainment gets underway.

     Feel like a little pampering? Head to the hair salon, or schedule a massage. Stretch your muscles on a spin around the walking track, or do laps in the heated swimming pool on the Sun Deck. Looking for more activity? Work out in the fitness room, and use one of the onboard bicycles during shore excursions.

     Please note: Elevators on these ships do not access the Sun Deck or the Piano Deck.

AmaMagna.

AmaMagna—which makes her debut in 2019—affords guests ultra-spacious suites and staterooms, a selection of dining venues, a sun deck with a large heated swimming pool, whirlpool, and sky bar, and an expansive wellness studio and two massage rooms.

     With 98 staterooms that accommodate a maximum of 196 passengers, her size is perfect for cruising the Danube. AmaMagna boasts a seasoned crew of 70.

     Three restaurants offer a wide variety of settings and menus, and a water sports platform adds to the fun.

     Please note: The elevator reaches the Violin Deck, Cello Deck, and Piano Deck; a pop-up lift is available for Sun Deck access
