Some highlights of AMAWaterways:

Spacious staterooms–some with private balconies that let you embrace the scenery as you cruise from port to port. A Standard Stateroom measures 160 Sq. Ft. while some Suites can be as large as 360 Sq. Ft. On the European ships, the queen-sized bed can be turned into two twin beds that each have high-thread count linens and a storage unit that slides out underneath.
There is a desk/vanity area with a large mirror, a comfy sitting area, a closet and even an alcove with additional shelves, and a small fridge (on some ships). Every stateroom has a flat screened TV that offers movies, satellite TV, and music channels. This flat screen doubles as a computer monitor to access complimentary internet in each room.
Some of the other stateroom features include: bathrooms with multi-jet showers, robes, slippers, and other hotel style amenities, bottled water replenished daily, generous storage space, phone, and a personal safe.
