A river cruise on APT's 148-passenger AmaDante visits charming towns along the Danube, Rhine, Mosel and Main rivers. Launched in 2008, AmaDante is nearly identical to sister ships AmaLyra, AmaDolce, AmaCello and AmaLegro. Lots of inclusions at no extra charge will please the pocket: expect unlimited Internet, bicycle hire, guided excursions in each port and flat-screen TVs loaded with the latest movies. Communal lounges are the perfect spot to relax with a drink and take in the panoramic views of Europe through expansive windows.
APT jointly operates AmaDante with AmaWaterways, its European river cruise partner. For Australian and New Zealand passengers, the main difference you'll notice is even more inclusions: most drinks, tips, porterage and transfers.
APT's passengers enjoy the best of Europe's sights with exclusive Royal Collection itineraries and tailored sightseeing experiences, organised by APT's cruise director, who travels onboard for the entire voyage. Freedom of Choice tour options cater to cruisers who like flexibility to plan their days based on several choices of activities and sights.
For those APT travellers who upgrade to Silver or Gold butler class, extra treats (Champagne on arrival, pre-dinner canapes and fruit skewers) and additional services (valet assistance, garment pressing, shoe shine services and in-room dining) are available.

The 164-passenger AmaReina, which sails for Australia-based APT, offers a formal dining room and a casual all-day eatery, double-balcony cabins and a range of tour options.
APT's AmaLyra launched in 2009, joining nearly identical sister ships AmaDolce (2009), AmaCello (2008), AmaDante (2008), AmaLegro (2007) and AmaDagio (2006). The ship cruises along Europe's great inland waterways, including the Rhine, Mosel, Main and Danube.
APT co-owns AmaWaterways, a leading river cruise operator in Europe, and both companies operate the AmaBella. In Australia and New Zealand, the cruises are sold under the APT brand, with unique itineraries and inclusions.
Debuted in 2008, AmaCello features many of the modern conveniences river cruisers have come to love (and expect): wireless Internet, multifunction Web/TV systems, comfy sun decks and spacious bathrooms.All cabins have river views, making it a tempting option to simply relax in your room and watch the world glide by.
