So how does a river cruise ship head out to sea? Take a look!
The AmaDagio is no ordinary river cruise ship. OK, it is "ordinary" for AmaWaterways; which is one reason I am so enthusiastic about this river cruise line. (I am taking my family on a Viet Nam and Cambodia river cruise down the Mekong River this summer and will be talking about that in some detail soon.)
She has 71 170-square-foot staterooms and four 255-square-foot Junior Suites. Eighty percent of all staterooms and Junior Suites feature large French balconies. Note that the square footage is competitive with what you expect on ocean cruise ships; quite unusual for river cruise ships.
Inside the ship is exquisitely decorated staterooms are all the amenities of a fine hotel with white-on-white plush bedding, a cozy sitting area, individually controlled air-conditioning and ample closet space. The AmaDagio features the latest in onboard entertainment with HD-TVs featuring the Infotainment system offering keyboard with internet access, English language TV stations, a large selection of movies and numerous music programs. Additional amenities include a full-service restaurant, wellness area with glassed-in fitness room, complimentary Wi-Fi and bicycles to explore the small towns and cities along the route.
