Dining

Aboard AMA ships, you’ll have plenty of choices when it comes to dining. Head to the Main Restaurant or The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant to savor award-winning cuisine. Stop by the Main Lounge for tapas between meals. You’ll also find a light lunch option and snacks throughout the day here. More places to dine means fewer guests in each venue, allowing for more personalized service and more space. Don’t be surprised when your waiter remembers how you like your eggs in the morning and what your wine of choice of is.

Chef’s Table

Join a few of your fellow travelers at The Chef’s Table, where the kitchen — usually hidden — becomes part of the entertainment. You’ll have the opportunity to watch the chef prepare a special, multi-course meal right in front of you. The menu here is unique, making this a truly distinct gastronomic experience. Indulge in delectable dishes paired with unlimited fine wines, hand-selected just for this dinner. It is the only venue of its kind on the river.

Enjoy complimentary drinks at mealtimes

You will enjoy complimentary, unlimited wine, beer and soft drinks during lunch and dinner, as well as sparkling wine and fresh-squeezed juices during breakfast. We hand pick only the highest quality wines and pair them with our cuisine. You’ll have the chance to savor different wines on each day of your cruise.
Our reds and whites are of the highest quality, and come from local wineries and vineyards. It is a fantastic way to savor the flavor of each region you are visiting. Rieslings from the Wachau Valley, Sauternes in Bordeaux and Calvados from Normandy are just a few examples of how you can indulge.

De Rotisseurs

AmaWaterways and President Rudi Schreiner were inducted into La Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, a prestigious international gastronomic society dedicated to fine cuisine. Founded in Paris in 1950 to honor the royal Guild of Goose Roasters (whose origins date back to the 13th century), it is the oldest and largest food and wine society in the world. Membership to La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is by invitation only and is extended to those possessing world-class culinary acumen. All of our ships in Europe are members and our onboard culinary team is united by a desire to share their expert knowledge of wine and fine dining with you.
