Life aboard AmaDolce
AmaDolce, an Aria Class vessel, offers 7-night cruises out of Bordeaux, France, on the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers, passing through wine regions steeped in history dating from Roman times. The full tour of 13 nights actually starts with two nights in Paris; transfer by high-speed train to Bordeaux, making a 7-night cruise; and by high-speed train to Tours in the Loire Valley for two nights in a hotel; tour the Loire Valley and return to Paris to stay overnight. Aria Class ships are smaller and carry fewer people than most, so are less crowded, more intimate, and can access the central ports that larger ships are unable to reach. Prices are inclusive of transfers, port charges, excursions, gratuities, meals and dinner drinks.

AmaDolce is an Aria Class vessel launched in 2009 and carries 146 guests. Features include two specialty restaurants. Three quarters of the staterooms are suites, with French Balcony, and an indoor balcony that avoids wasted floor space during inclement weather. The lower suite deck holds the main restaurant. On the upper suite deck are the Main Lounge and Bar. To the rear is Erlebnis Chef’s Table Restaurant. On top is the Sun Deck with retractable shade/shelter, plus a heated whirlpool and walking track. There is 24 hour reception, a fitness room and sauna, hair and beauty salon and massage room. An elevator provides access between the two suite decks.

Accommodation
This river vessel has 74 outside suites across three accommodation decks (the top fourth deck being a sun deck). The 12 lowest deck cabins have twin windows at the water line. Cabins are large, fitted with a flat screen TV, personal computer, adjustable AC, personal safe, hair dryer, satellite phone, queen-size bed, ensuite bathroom with shower, spacious wardrobe, and vanity with sitting area. TVs have “Infotainment” setups, with Internet access (inclusive and unlimited), movie and music libraries, bow and navigational cams.

The four Owners’ Suites feature a sitting area with sofa and two chairs, floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic balcony and a luxurious, extra spacious bathroom with bathtub and shower. There is a share program for single travellers, and two single cabins. Access for passengers needing special assistance is quite limited.

Food and Dining
Fine gourmet cuisine served in the Verde Fine Dining Restaurant emphasizes local ingredients, fresh produce and seafood. Breakfast is a full gourmet American buffet in the restaurant, with cooked-to-order eggs. Three-course lunches are followed by cake and coffee snacks each afternoon. Dinners feature a choice of four entrées and complimentary matching quality wines. Dinners are a four-course dining experience, featuring a choice of four entrées. Champagne at breakfast, and soft drink, beer and wine during dinner (at lunch also on APT Exclusive Sailings), are complimentary.

Depending on the accommodation, APT Royal Collection cruises have butler service and in-room dining at breakfast and dinner. Alfresco dining is on the Sun Deck. Access to a tea and coffee bar is available around the clock. Options for early and late risers are available in the Main Lounge. All onboard meals, and tipping for cruise staff, are included.

Entertainment
Cruises are port intensive, and the fare includes guided tours in each port. If you do not join an excursion there are about 20 bicycles available for exploring independently (at no additional fee). Onboard daytime entertainment centres on the passing scenery and sharing experiences with fellow passengers. Relaxation areas include the main lounge and bar, rear lounge, observation lounge, massage and sauna area – and of course a small gift shop.

The Cruise Director organises daily entertainment onboard and/or on shore, nightly piano music and dancing, folklore performances, lectures, theme dinners, and expert local guides - all in English. Spend idle time at the inside library and main lounge and bar, or watch Europe pass by from the comfort of your deck chair. Dip in the heated whirlpool, or take a brisk walk around the deck chairs on the Sun Deck track.
