Introduced in 2009, the AmaLyra quickly earned a "Best New River Cruise Ship" distinction. Striking contemporary artwork is a hallmark of this luxurious vessel. Relax in spacious accommodations that range in size from 170-255 square feet, most featuring French balconies. Gourmet dining on the AmaLyra restaurant brings you sophisticated cuisine with attentive service. The fine regional food is prepared under the direction of gold medal-winning chefs from Chaîne des Rôtisseurs. Enjoy free-flowing local wines at dinner, while surrounded by Europe’s heartland. The ship carries a fleet of bicycles and safety helmets free for you to use. The bicycles let you venture out and explore the riverside bikeways or meander through quaint cobblestone streets. The bikes are set up and ready for use as soon as the ship docks. Thanks to the computer provided in your stateroom and high-speed Internet access plus Wi-Fi, you can stay connected with friends and family back home. The exclusive movies-on-demand system offers Hollywood’s current releases, a selection of classic films, or entertaining travel videos chosen to coincide with your itinerary. You’ll also enjoy a variety of English-language news, sports and satellite TV stations, as a selection of music channels. It’s all available on your flat-panel TV, and it’s completely complimentary.
