AmaWaterways announced its 2021 cruises are now open for reservations, with rewards for those guests who book early.
The company will welcome a brand new state-of-the-art ship, 4 new itineraries, and pre- and post-cruise land programs in some of the most sought-after European destinations.
Joining AmaWaterways’ fleet in Europe, the newbuild 156-passenger AmaLucia, sistership to AmaSiena (2020), will boast connecting staterooms, signature twin balconies, and multiple dining venues such as The Chef’s Table, among other amenities. Celebrating spring in Belgium and the Netherlands, AmaLucia begins her voyage on March 16, 2021, sailing Tulip Time journeys before setting sail on the Rhine, Danube, Main, and Moselle rivers.
In response to the increasing demand for more French itineraries, the cruise line announced the repositioning of 3 ships – besides AmaKristina moving to the Rhone, AmaDante is due to join AmaLyra on the Seine River, and AmaCello to sail a new itinerary on both the Saone and Rhone rivers. AmaVerde and AmaBella will rejoin the European fleet of AmaWaterways sailing the Danube and the Dutch and Belgian Waterways.
In 2021, AmaWaterways debuts 4 new 7-night itineraries – all complemented by pre- or post-cruise land programs:
- Impressions of the Seine & Paris aboard AmaDante out of Paris to Le Havre (and the reverse)
- Essence of Burgundy & Provence aboard AmaCello out of Chalon-sur-Saone to Arles (and the reverse)
- Rhine Castles & Swiss Alps aboard AmaMora and AmaSerena out of Amsterdam to Basel (and the reverse)
- Best of Holland & Belgium aboard AmaSerena round-trip from Amsterdam with visits to Utrecht and Dordrecht.
AmaWaterways will further enhance pre- and post-cruise experiences via a new land extension in France's Champagne region where travelers can visit popular vineyards and savor tastings of Moet et Chandon and Veuve Clicquot. The land program will be offered as an add-on to Europe’s Rivers & Castles, Vineyards of the Rhine & Moselle, and Rhine & Moselle Splendors itineraries.
