Sail through the heart of some of the world’s most celebrated cities and iconic, Old World towns. On a river cruise with AmaWaterways, travelling is about so much more than the destination – it’s about the journey.
Each day you’ll wake to balcony views of romantic, spired skylines, fairytale castles and centuries-old villages. You’ll discover the hidden secrets of fascinating destinations, like Austria’s opulent Melk and Klosterneuburg abbeys or Regensburg’s Roman-inspired Walhalla hall of fame.
Through unique excursions, you’ll be transformed into an adventurer. See the ruins of Dürnstein Fortress where Richard the Lionheart was once held captive. Explore Bulgaria’s Belogradchik Fortress and its ethereal surroundings. Delve into European culture and traditions with AmaWaterways hands-on Special Interest Tours, like pretzel baking in Wertheim and truffle hunting in Avignon.
These cruises are tailored to the tastes of true epicureans. Only with AmaWaterways are you assured of an exquisite dining experience, matched only by perfectly-paired wine.
Enjoy regionally inspired, farm-to-table cuisine, such as authentic wiener schnitzel paired with Grüner Veltliner in Austria and sweet arroz dolce with port in Portugal, onboard in the main restaurant. Or indulge in a multi-course tasting menu, prepared at The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant. It’s as entertaining as it is delicious!
An AmaWaterways river cruise is all about slowing down long enough to savour the special moments in life. Join rejuvenating onboard classes led by trained fitness professionals, including resistance band stretching or cardio. Or relax on your own with a dip in the heated pool.
When the sun sets, the real fun begins. Nightly festivities in the main lounge give you the chance to unwind and get to know fellow guests. While away the evening hours over music from string quartets and opera singers. Or enjoy folk dancers and live performances. These are the memories and moments that will last a lifetime…
All this – and so much more – awaits guests onboard an AmaWaterways river cruise – the highest-rated cruise ships in Europe! Visit your nearest CAA Travel store to learn more, or call CAA Travel at 613-820-1890 or 1-800-267-8713.
