AmaWaterways celebrated the opening of its 2023 European river cruise season following a Cruise Managers’ Kickoff Meeting onboard AmaMagna hosted by Co-Founder and Executive Vice-President, Kristin Karst.
Guests are now welcome aboard AmaWaterways’ fleet of 19 ships sailing Europe’s majestic waterways, including five cruising the scenic rivers of France, five dedicated to the early spring Tulip Time cruises and another 10 welcoming guests on the Rhine, Main, Moselle, Danube and Douro rivers.
“Our Cruise Managers add that extra sparkle to our guests’ vacations and being able to start off the 2023 European season with an in-person gathering was very special,” said Karst.
“We are seeing strong demand for 2023 travel and are receiving many last-minute reservations for all dates, including this summer. Travelling with the whole family creates special memories that last a lifetime and July and August departures are exquisite months to travel, when everyone is free and able to enjoy our included hiking and biking tours, wine tastings and wonderful culinary experiences.”
Highlights of AmaWaterways’ 2023 European Season Include:
More Immersive Experiences in France
With continued demand for immersive travel experiences, AmaWaterways offers a variety of unforgettable and enriching activities that connect travellers to France’s rich history, culture, food, wine and people. Since many of AmaWaterways’ France sailings depart on Thursdays, travelers can easily reserve combination cruises, visiting up to three different rivers during one journey, extending their adventures while exploring different regions and historical landmarks and saving 10% on consecutive cruises.
The All-New Seven River Journeys
In 2023, AmaWaterways is officially debuting its history-making Seven River Journeys, taking guests through 14 countries over 45 days, the longest river cruise to date. With three dates to choose from, each itinerary will include unique experiences, seamless transfers between ships, complimentary laundry and portage, all onboard gratuities, and more than 130 complimentary shore excursions.
Extended Season on Portugal’s Douro River
AmaWaterways has extended its 2023 Portugal river cruising season, with 14 additional round-trip Porto sailings onboard AmaDouro. With cruises available now through the end of December, guests have the opportunity to experience the joys of this popular destination in the early winter season with temperate weather, fewer crowds and charming Christmas Markets.
New Itineraries: Classical Sounds & Capital Cities
With increased demand for immersive cultural experiences, AmaWaterways has added new Celebration of Classical Music: The Danube cruises to its roster of itineraries for 2023. Classical music enthusiasts can select one of seven departures cruising between Vienna and Budapest and explore the birthplaces of famous musicians, world-renowned opera houses and experience live performances in beautiful places.
For travellers short on time, AmaWaterways is offering a new opportunity to explore the Danube with its five-night Majestic Capitals of the Danube itinerary. Guests will explore three of Europe’s most spectacular capital cities – Budapest, Hungary; Bratislava, Slovakia; and Vienna, Austria – with a choice of included daily excursions. These sailings take place throughout April, May and December aboard the AmaLea, AmaViola and the one-of-a-kind AmaMagna.
Time Is Running Out For Free Land Extensions
Travellers have until March 31, 2023 to receive a complimentary two-, three- or four-night land package on select sailings.
