The vessels also feature a fitness center, beauty salon, whirlpool, walking track on the Sun Deck, and bicycles for passengers to explore quaint towns and villages on their own.

The “AMAWATERWAYS Difference” extends to a myriad of amenities that passengers enjoy on a daily basis, including: complimentary Wi-Fi in the public lounges; complimentary, free-flowing local wines at dinner; and a specialty coffee and tea station.
