River cruising is a wonderful way to visit several destinations in one trip, without constantly unpacking and worrying about how to get around. Aboard your intimate and luxurious ship, you’re guided right into the heart of a city for the day. So you’ll really get to see the best of Europe or Asia—and meet fascinating people, too. And when it’s time to depart, the dinner table or stateroom balcony is your front-row seat to countryside, castles, temples, and other unforgettable sights along the way. Let an AMA Travel cruise specialist help you experience the perfect river cruise. We’ve been there, so we know you’ll love it.Your cruise specialist will:

AMA Travel partners with a lot of cruise lines. This is great for selection, but it can be hard to settle on one when there are several to choose from. Here’s a breakdown of some of our preferred river cruise partners and what they do best:
Staying connected while you’re on your river cruise is easy. Most cruise ships have a free internet connection you can access through shared computer terminals or Wi-Fi on your personal device.
Your best bet is to pack clothing and accessories as if you were staying at a small, boutique hotel in your cruise’s destination. For daily city or countryside exploration off the ship, you’ll want to wear comfortable shoes and clothing. And for evening dinners and other onboard events, we recommend a “country club casual” dress code. Also, save space and leave your hairdryer at home. Most cruise lines provide them in each stateroom.
