Choosing a holiday with a difference can be an exhausting ordeal as you try to discover something a little special however, when it comes to cruise holidays, then AMA Waterways can provide a getaway that not many other companies can.
The cruise line itself is not the oldest around – it has been going for just over a decade now – nor is it the biggest – they currently have a 12 strong fleet – however its senior staff have a much longer history of working in the industry and the company has built up a solid reputation in the cruise market and annually see’s increases in the amount of passengers and holidaymakers who use its services.
What makes this company stand out however in a market that is quickly becoming diluted by the amount of new cruise liners entering its waters? The ships that AMA uses are specifically designed to be able to easily navigate waterways and rivers. Many cruise lines cater to the long distance ocean market whereby the ships are gigantic vessels chugging along the ocean waves, however, these cruise liners are different.
They tend to be much smaller in nature so can easily make it to some locations that ordinary cruise chips cannot. For example: their popular European based cruises can take in many different locations and small ports along the Danube, Rhine and Moselle Rivers as well as the Dutch canals. This provides the chance for passengers to see sights, attractions and activities that they would not normally be able to on a cruise holiday. The company has also expanded to the South-East of Asia and offers routes into Vietnam and Cambodia; countries that many cruise lines do not offer.
AMA Waterways for an Intimate and Personal setting
Indeed, life on board the small type ships also has many bonuses as well. For some people the larger, more imposing cruise chips can offer a bit of a soulless experience; passengers far outweigh staff, privacy is almost non-existent and the multitude of options can actually put people off as opposed to enticing them with choice. On these cruises you get a much more intimate and personal setting and the ships themselves only hold a maximum of 164 passengers at one time.
It is all very well having good amenities and being able to see places from the water but what about the actual excursions? Personalized tour guides are provided for every location that the cruise visits and many of the cruises take in extensive land tours such as the African safari cruise which takes in Cape Town, the Chobe River as well as a safari park. So it isn’t a case of just sitting on a cruise ship and gliding through the water, Ama helps to give you a much more rounded and informative experience.
Choosing a cruise company to book with can be difficult due to the amount of operators that are currently in the market. However, AMA Waterways provides a different cruise experience. Their intimate settings and the ability to navigate narrow waterways and this reach ports and destinations that many other cruise liners cannot is a massive bonus for the award winning cruise company. For a true river cruise experience then it is difficult to look elsewhere.
