AmaWaterways announced it is honouring frontline personnel by complimentary river cruises. First responders, medical professionals and employees of essential services with a valid ID are now eligible to receive a free FCC (Future Cruise Certificate/Credit).
AmaWaterways' FCC can be used on any European or Asian river cruise itinerary through December 31, 2021, with one paying passenger staying in the same stateroom. Reservations must be made within 90 days prior departure.
Kristin Karst (company's Executive Vice President and Co-Founder) said there was no one more deserving a vacation.
“To express our deepest gratitude, we hope to welcome these very special individuals and their loved ones on an unforgettable river cruise as soon as we resume sailing,” Karst said.
AmaWaterways is one of Europe's largest river cruise companies and a travel brand of APT Travel Group (1967-founded, with current owner Geoff McGeary). APT's fleet operates river cruises mainly in Europe (including in Russia) and Asia (China, India, Vietnam, Cambodia).

In Europe, AMA's river cruises are currently suspended through July 31, 2020.
