When you hear people talking about going on a cruise, generally they are referring to an ocean cruise on enormous vessels carrying thousands of people. These types of cruises are resorts on the water in that they offer a great variety of activities on board, as well as a great deal of eating opportunities. In essence, they are less about sightseeing and more about enjoying a self-contained destination that happens to float.
Less well-known, are river cruises. These opportunities are a great fit for you if you enjoy a focus on seeing the landmarks, architecture, and culture of foreign lands. Your boat is smaller as is the number of people joining you on the river cruise.
Ama river cruises are great for seeing Europe, Africa, and southeast Asia because each one has a theme. For example, Ama river cruises to Europe include Christmas markets on the Rhine or the Danube, a wine-themed taste of Bordeaux, and a tulip-time, beer cruise. In Africa, your Ama river cruise will be on the Zambezi River. In southeast Asia, Ama river tours cruise the Mekong and the Ayeyarwady. Regardless of your location, you will be treated to excellent cuisine onboard, as well as luxurious state rooms with outside balconies, and comfortable common viewing areas. You can also find Ama river cruises in Russia.
Depending on your destination, your ship could hold as many as 170 other guests or as few as 28. Ama river tours in Europe tend to use boats that hold a larger number of people, while the Ama river cruises in Africa use the Zambezi Queen, which accommodates 28. Either way, you cannot go wrong with an Ama river cruise. You will have expert guides, locally-themed cuisine, and the opportunity to really get to know that particular part of the world.
