AmaBella

The AmaBella is a stunning river ship, unique in her own right. A classic design palette of black and white in the main lounge, allows your conversations to provide the color. The intimate marbled bar is an inviting place to grab a cocktail and the sun deck putting green, featured only on select AmaWaterways ships, lures both regular golfers and newcomers alike. Most staterooms feature their signature twin balconies so you can enjoy the views however you wish, as well as entertainment-on-demand and marble bathrooms with multi-jet showerheads. Suites feature added enhancements, including a larger sitting area and an expansive bathroom complete with a bathtub and separate shower. You’ll also find a massage and hair salon on board, as well as a fitness room, specialty coffee station and gift shop. Mealtimes are a feast for the senses in the main restaurant and at The Chef’s Table.

Belgium and The Netherlands

Discover the timeless traditions of Delft porcelain and revel in the medieval architectural treasures of Bruges, Middelburg and Ghent. Throughout your journey indulge in Belgian chocolates, warm waffles and delicious cheeses—all while savoring the storybook atmosphere of the region

Antwerp

The Cathedral of Our Lady took 169 years (1352-1521) of labour to raise the 123m heavenward-reaching steeple of the Cathedral, the highest Gothic building in the Low Countries.

The Cathedral is an iconic treasury, with an impressive collection of major art works, including a series of paintings by Rubens. Now, after twenty years, the seven-naved church has been restored to its former architectural glory. Fascinating features include Rubens’ ‘Elevation of the Cross’ and his ‘Descent from the Cross’.

Netherlands

In the beautiful wetlands around Dordrecht, you will find the windmills of Kinderdijk. Nineteen beautiful windmills, built around 1740, stand here as part of a larger water management system to prevent floods. Today, they symbolise Dutch water management, and in 1997 they were declared to be UNESCO World Heritage.

The windmills of Kinderdijk were built to keep the low-lying lands of the Alblasserwaard dry. Facing each other, they form an iconic Dutch scene. You can also admire many waterways, dikes, mills and sluices and discover how the Dutch have been using water to their benefit for over 1000 years.

Rotterdam

The Rotterdam Cube House has been an architectural phenomenon for more than 30 years. If you look at it, you wonder if you can live in it. That is very personal. You first have to get the feeling that, for example, you have a comfortable jacket: the feeling of being at home.

In any case, you have to accept the unusual forms and then be creative. You can have it done (expensive), but doing it yourself gives much more satisfaction and connection to the house. Because adaptability and creativity are required and the house has three layers, the cube house is more suitable as a starter house than as a senior house.
