    More DINING
    Our ships in Europe are members of La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs – a prestigious international culinary society – and with good reason. Our expert chefs craft menus that feature exquisite, locally-sourced cuisine as well as traditional Western offerings. We are the only river cruise line that has The Chef’s Table, an intimate specialty restaurant included in the price of the cruise where you can watch the chef prepare a lavish multi-course menu right in front of you. Each dinner at The Chef’s Table is served with complimentary hand-selected local reds and whites from Europe’s renowned wine regions. There’s also sparkling wine and fresh juice with breakfast, menu service during lunch, as well as delicious tapas and snacks in the Main Lounge between meals. All onboard dining, as well as unlimited wine and beer with lunch and dinner, is included so you can indulge whenever and however you’d like.

    Aboard our ships, you’ll have plenty of choices when it comes to personalizing your dining experience. Head to the Main Restaurant or The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant to savor award-winning cuisine. Stop by the Main Lounge for tapas between meals. You’ll also find a light lunch and snacks throughout the day here. And on board AmaMagna, there are four unique dining experiences, including our Al Fresco Restaurant and Jimmy’s Restaurant.

    Join a few of your fellow travelers at The Chef’s Table, where the kitchen — usually hidden — becomes part of the entertainment. You’ll have the opportunity to watch the chef prepare a special multi-course meal right in front of you. The menu here is unique, making this a truly distinct gastronomic experience. Indulge in delectable dishes served with unlimited fine wines, hand-selected just for this dinner. It is the only venue of its kind on the river.

    The Drinks ARE ON US
    You will enjoy complimentary, unlimited wine, beer and soft drinks during lunch and dinner, as well as sparkling wine and fresh-squeezed juices during breakfast. We hand pick only the highest quality wines and pair them with our cuisine. You’ll have the chance to savor different wines on each day of your cruise.

    AmaWaterways and President Rudi Schreiner were inducted into La Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, a prestigious international gastronomic society dedicated to fine cuisine. Founded in Paris in 1950 to honor the royal Guild of Goose Roasters (whose origins date back to the 13th century), it is the oldest and largest food and wine society in the world. Membership to La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is by invitation only and is extended to those possessing world-class culinary acumen. All of our ships in Europe are members and our onboard culinary team is united by a desire to share their expert knowledge of wine and fine dining with you.

    Inviting Public Spaces
    With panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the boat, everywhere you go you can take advantage of magnificent wildlife viewing.

    Sustainable Cruising
    To preserve its wildlife surroundings the Zambezi Queen was designed to be environmentally friendly.

    Impeccable Service
    Our professional and friendly crew will go above and beyond to ensure you have a memorable experience.

    Explore Europe’s amazing sights like the locals do. We were the first river cruise line to carry an entire fleet of complimentary bicycles on board, so you can experience biking alongside enchanting riverside pathways and in city centers. Whether you feel like joining one of our exclusive guided bike tours, or want to go discover on your own, there are many ways for you to explore on two wheels during your cruise. The beauty of Europe doesn’t just lie in its architecture and landmarks – there are also breathtaking sights to be seen when you venture out into nature. That’s why we’ve designed special guided hikes that will take you a bit off the beaten path, offering a unique perspective in beautiful destinations such as Austria’s UNESCO-designated Wachau Valley. All of our guided hikes and bike tours are included in the cruise fare so you have more choices when it comes to how you prefer to explore.

    Our genuinely warm and welcoming crew go above and beyond to ensure your journey with us is as memorable as possible, and you can rest assured you will be well taken care of throughout your journey by our professionally trained, all English-speaking staff. We hire the very best team of professionals in the industry and continuously train them to ensure they always exceed expectations. This means getting to know you so they can anticipate your individual preferences and offer you those extra special touches to make you feel at home. From the Cruise Manager who drove a beloved teddy bear to the airport to meet his grateful young owner to the Hotel Receptionist who biked into town to retrieve a cherished purchase left behind, our crew is more than just highly trained – they “sparkle.”
