Perfect Timing for A River Cruise Ship
An upscale river cruise ship, AmaWaterways’ AmaCerto, which accommodates 164 passengers, has spacious staterooms of up to 350 square feet. AmaCerto offers "twin balconies” in many staterooms, an innovative design that combines a French balcony with a larger balcony that can accommodate a table and chairs. All staterooms feature complimentary Internet access, first-run Hollywood movies and a music library. Every guest will enjoy plush bedding, fluffy bathrobes, and spacious bathrooms with multi-jet showerheads.
The AmaCerto also offers a number of features more common to larger ocean-going cruise ships than small river-going ships. A stunning glass elevator will serve all four decks, including a sun deck with a retractable roof, heated swimming pool, swim-up bar, whirlpool, fitness center and walking track.
There are five different dining venues. Options include gourmet selections in the main dining room, a Chef’s Table restaurant with its own private chef, two Wine Bar venues and a casual open-air bistro.
Each evening local performers come on board to provide after-dinner entertainment. An onboard massage, beauty and hair salon is able to provide a bit of pampering after a busy day of sightseeing.
Because many of Europe’s rivers are lined with bike paths, the AmaCerto carries a fleet of more than two dozen bikes and safety helmets for passengers to use while the ship is docked.
The AmaCerto set sail for the first time in April 2012 for a special "tulip time” cruise through Holland and Belgium. The ship will spend most of its time on the Danube, sailing through Austria, Germany, Hungary and the Czech Republic. Two 16-night "Magnificent Europe” cruises also sail on the Main and Rhine rivers, traversing the continental divide via the Main-Danube Canal.
