AmaCello Ship Review
The AmaCello launched in 2008, and became a sister ship to the 2009-built AmaLyra and AmaDolce. Carrying 144 guests apiece, these vessels are 360 feet in length and feature some of the most luxurious accommodations in the river cruise market.
- Starting at 140 square feet are the Single Accommodations. These two staterooms are located side-by-side on the Cello Deck, and feature a French balcony – making them ideal for solo travelers who don’t want to compromise. These feature a wardrobe, bathroom with shower, and a desk with Internet access and a flat-screen television.
- Categories D and E measure 170 square feet, and are located on Piano Deck. They feature fixed windows and offer a sitting area, desk with Internet access and flat-screen television, and a bathroom with shower.
- Categories A,B and C are also 170 square feet, but are located on Cello and Violin decks. They feature all the amenities of the Category D and E staterooms, but with the addition of floor-to-ceiling windows that open to a French balcony. Category A staterooms offer a slightly more desirable location, being one deck higher than Category B and are located amidships.
- Topping off the accommodation choices are three Junior Suites. Located on Violin Deck, these suites are a comfortable 255 square feet and feature a full bathroom with shower and tub, a flat-screen TV, mini bar, spacious wardrobe, and a full-size window in addition to a complete French balcony. As with many ships, these suites can sell out quickly, so it pays to plan ahead.
