When it’s time to embark for your Nile River cruise, you’ll be warmly welcomed aboard a beautiful river cruise ship where luxury always means love with AmaWaterways. The stunning AmaDahlia is an inviting 68-passenger ship offering eight standard staterooms and 24 magnificent suites with spectacular views of the Nile River and a wealth of amenities that will surprise and delight you, including a heated sun-deck swimming pool and bar, The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant, hair and nail salon and two soothing massage rooms.
Reasonable efforts are made to accommodate the special needs of disabled cruise participants, but no responsibility will be undertaken for any denial of services by carriers, hotels, restaurants, or other independent suppliers. Tour buses are not equipped with wheelchair ramps and cabin doors are not wide enough to allow access by standard wheelchairs.
Wheelchairs and walkers cannot be carried on tour buses, due to space limitations. Wheelchair passengers should be aware of these limitations. For safety reasons, passengers in wheelchairs cannot be carried on ramps in ports where the ship is at anchor. We regret that we cannot provide individual assistance to a tour member for walking, getting on/off tour busses and other transportation vehicles, or other personal needs. A qualified travel companion must accompany travellers who need assistance.
The dress code is relaxed. Light, comfortable clothing is ideal for during the day, but smart casual clothing for evenings on board the ship is recommended. You may wish to bring something a little dressier for the
Welcome and Farewell dinners and any special events, however there will be no black tie or formal evenings.
We recommend that you pack a variety of light to medium weight clothing, plus rain-wear in case of cooler or wet weather. Layers are a good option to cover a range of temperatures and to suit changing conditions.
Comfortable footwear is imperative, as some excursions involve walking steps or ramps to embark/disembark.
If your sightseeing includes churches, monasteries, synagogues or mosques, dress casually and ensure sufficient body cover (for example cover your shoulders and wear trousers or a knee-length dress).
Europe: There are no medical facilities on board. However medical services can easily be called from shore if required.
Vietnam & Cambodia: We do not employ doctors or nurses on board the ships. In the event medical assistance is needed, appropriate medical facilities will be contacted. Note that response time can vary.
Africa: We do not employ doctors or nurses on board the Zambezi Queen. In the event medical assistance is needed, appropriate medical facilities will be contacted. Note that response time can vary.
AmaWaterways is the proud sponsor of the ODA Free Village English School in Siem Reap, Cambodia, established in 2011 in association with Opportunities of Development thru Art (ODA). Our financial support to the school brings critical English-language skills to local children of grammar-school age to help improve their lives and assist with subsequent employment opportunities.
We are extremely honoured to participate in such a constructive and lasting project as this life-changing school. We encourage all AmaWaterways guests to visit this remarkable part of the world, known for its stunning temple complexes and the friendly people who live there.
Helping from Home
Our generous guests often ask if there is anything they can bring from home to donate to the ODA Free Village English School. There are more than 600 children enrolled in the school, so there are never enough books or educational materials to go around. If you are interested in making a contribution, we suggest:
Basic school supplies - pencils with erasers, erasers, pens, chalk, small notebooks, jumbo felt tip pens, post-it notes, dry erase markers (and blue and red ink refills), exercise books, highlighters, building blocks, large threading beads, paints, simple wooden jigsaw puzzles, laminated write-and-wipe books, UNO cards, and very simple storybooks with lots of pictures.
Personal hygiene supplies: soap, shampoo, toothbrushes and mini tubes of toothpaste.
