Enchanting Rhine Cruise Review

“This cruise was really lovely, with a range of different tour options for those who prioritise exploring via physical activity or otherwise. I can’t speak for the other ships, but my room aboard the AmaPrima was excellent; spacious and well-kept.”

Gemma Roald, Leeds

Enchanting Rhine FAQ

Find answers to some of the most common questions about river cruising here.

How can I determine which ship I’ll be staying on?

Your floating hotel is dependent on what period you book your cruise for – they’re listed with available dates on the AmaWaterways website.

What types of excursions are on offer?

This cruise offers a range of excursions: walking tours, tastings, bike rides and hikes are all available to guests. You’ll also have the option to enjoy opportunities offered exclusively to AmaWaterways’ guests.

Will there be any days dedicated to scenic cruising?

Not in their entirety; on Day 5 of your getaway you’ll spend the afternoon cruising through Rhine Gorge – but this occurs between ports at Rudesheim and Lahnstein.
