Starting with how they look at staterooms. At Amara I, we've taken a radically different approach to stateroom design than other river cruise lines. We didn't compromise. We didn't cut corners. We didn't make our rooms an afterthought. Instead we designed our Suite with an attention to detail river cruising has never seen before.
