Cruise Itinerary

We’ll begin in the lovely city of Paris where you will set sail in ultimate luxury on board AmaWaterways’ state-of-the-art ship, AmaDante. Relax and rejuvenate in spacious, luxurious staterooms with plenty of amenities. Most feature French balconies that afford stunning views of the scenery along the river. Savor exquisite cuisine at a variety of dining venues. Enjoy the whirlpool on the Sun Deck as we pass by centuries-old castles, charming villages and other breathtaking scenery. Delight in AmaWaterways’ popular nightly performances that highlight local musicians and dancers, bringing the culture and flavor of France to life. A Captain who greets you with a red rose, waiters that remember your name, coffee order and individual preferences, a Cruise Manager who makes it her daily goal to see you smile…this is just some of what you can expect on board.
