Living Well On The River With AmaWaterways

Fitness for the Mind, Body and Soul as you sail the rivers of Europe

Fill Your Heart with Ama

Travelers often speak of leaving a piece of themselves behind in cities that make their hearts skip a beat. But on an award-winning AmaWaterways river cruise, you won’t ever return home with love lost. Instead, they make it their personal mission to ensure your heart will grow.


Keeping Your Heart Healthy – And Your Mind and Spirit Too

AmaWaterways ensures that every guest is able to enhance their best self while on board. With a professional Wellness Host aboard ships in Europe and on the Mekong River, you’ll find a variety of engaging wellness activities both on board and ashore. Join a group stretching class in the morning on the Sun Deck, or perhaps a dance class in the afternoon. Cardio and core strengthening options are also available, as are active wellness walks. And if you prefer a gentler approach to wellness, our heated sun-deck pools and massage rooms will help bring you back to a peaceful state of mind.


Wellness Team: Your personal Instructor

AmaWaterways offers a transformative journey that nourishes your mind, body and spirit through immersive wellness activities. With the guidance of one of their exceptional Wellness Hosts, you will have the opportunity to participate in group fitness classes such as resistance band stretching, cardio and dance, based on each individual host’s expertise. You can also join your Wellness Host on active excursions or attend an informative lecture about how you can better incorporate wellness into your everyday life. Professionally trained and passionate about health, sports and fitness, these inspiring individuals will help you mindfully achieve your goals in engaging new ways so you can make the most out of your journey on board – and beyond.
