In Europe, the Rhine-Main-Danube Canal makes it possible to sail through more than a dozen countries on a 3,000 mile long river network. You can, for example, take a river cruise vacation from Amsterdam to Budapest, crossing the Continental Divide with an elevation of 1,330 feet. Or, choose a river cruise through the narrow gorges of the Iron Gates in Eastern Europe or sail along the Romanian/Bulgarian borger to Bucharest and then end your journey in Istanbul.
Other outstanding amenitieson board are, a fitness center and sauna, a giant gathering area know as the Main Lounge, a serene and relaxing fireside library, a salon, a 24 hour tea and coffee shop and several outdoor decks that offer activities and entertainment.
The Front Deck and Lower Sun Decks are reserved for guests who wish to watch the beautiful riverside scenery, while the other decks offer facilities for those seeking more active pursuits. There is a heated swimming pool, a giant chess board, putting green and large running track.
Another reason for AMA's cruise vacation popularity is the superb dining experience it offers its river cruise guests. The Verde, its central dining room, is a exquisite restaurant that offers a world class experience. Bella Cucina offers outstanding Italian cuisine for dinner, and the Erlebnis Chef’s Table provides guests the joy of watching the head chef prepare famous European dishes.
