AmaDolce wiki

  • The APT AmaDolce boat is the 6th (last) among the new generation AMA river cruise ships of the Aria-class (preceding the newest Concerto-class boats). Her sisters are AmaCelloAmaDagioAmaDante, AmaLegro, AmaLyra. This is a new APT river cruise ship design featuring the "French Balcony" accommodations concept (sliding floor-to-ceiling glass doors). Each of these riverboats is powered by two "Cummins" marine diesel engines (model "KTA 38 M1", total power output 1620 kW / 2170 HP).
  • An unique experience on AMAwaterways AmaDolce cruises are the complimentary bike tours. Guests can use the onboard bicycles on all excursions and tours organized in each of the ports along the itineraries.
