Dear Traveler, I’m delighted that every year, we are able to add more fantastic chapters to the story of AmaWaterways and our river cruises. Our family-owned company has come a long way, and we continue to deliver the very best in river cruising to our valued guests. And a big part of that is that we never stand still – rather, we are always looking to innovate, enhance and add value for everyone that sets sail with us. We are always seeking to implement new ship designs and features, new tours, new destinations and new ways to provide a luxurious onboard experience that won’t soon be forgotten. And we always smile when we hear from our guests how amazing their cruise with AmaWaterways was. It is with great pleasure that I introduce to you our river cruise programs for 2017. We are looking forward to the brand-new AmaKristina, sister ship of the AmaViola, which will feature all of our latest innovations, including staterooms with connecting doors and staterooms that can accommodate more than 2 people. You will have more opportunities to sail the Rhine and Danube on our acclaimed twin-balcony ships, as well as a chance to try our newest cruise in Bordeaux. For those looking beyond Europe, our Exotics programs offer an easy, convenient way to explore Southeast Asia and Africa. On behalf of the entire AmaWaterways family, I look forward to welcoming you aboard soon. Sincerely, Rudi Schreiner President

ABOUT AMAWATERWAYS At AmaWaterways, we love working to provide our guests with only the best travel experiences. In fact, “Ama” is derived from the Latin word for “love” – an energy that we put into crafting every aspect of our river cruises. It is this passion that fuels our attention to detail, commitment to innovation and culture of making our guests our top priority. This is something you can feel from the moment you step on board, which is why all of our guests have a story about why their cruise with Ama was the best they’ve ever taken. With award-winning ships that feature an array of amenities, a variety of immersive shore excursions, critically-acclaimed dining and unparalleled service, AmaWaterways cruises are a traveler’s dream. We truly love having our guests on board, and it shows.

Together, they have made AmaWaterways the most distinctive line in the entire industry. Their hands-on approach to management allows us to give attention to every detail, making an AmaWaterways river cruise truly stand out from the rest.

CRUISE IN COMFORT & STYLE Our ships are inspired by luxury yachts and designed specifically to maximize every aspect of our guests’ experience.

From then on, you will be treated to an array of unique and luxurious features as you journey along your itinerary in your floating hotel. Relax and delight in stunning views in our spacious staterooms, most of which feature twin balconies – a French balcony and an outside balcony.

Indulge in award-winning cuisine at a variety of dining venues, including The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant – an experience you won’t find elsewhere. No matter how you spend your time, you’re sure to see why AmaWaterways ships are considered the best in Europe.

OUR EXPANDING FLEET Every year, we build ships that feature our latest innovations and enhancements. In 2017, we will welcome the AmaKristina, which – like the AmaViola – will feature staterooms that can accommodate three guests and suites that can hold up to four. Along with AmaSerena and AmaStella, these ships also have staterooms with connecting doors, making it easier for groups and families to travel together. Innovation continues to be a driving force in every new vessel we design. We invest a great deal of time into building our ships because we want each one to be perfect, down to every last detail. We also enhance and refresh our existing ships every year so that guests receive a consistent experience no matter which major European waterway they choose to cruise on.

UNPRECEDENTED TOP 11 Berlitz rated AmaWaterways the highest in its inaugural guide to river cruising in Europe. Known for its international travel and language expertise, Berlitz has published cruise guides for 30 years. Author Douglas Ward, a leading authority on cruising, has over 40 years of experience and has spent more than 6,000 days on board covering more than 1,000 voyages. Out of the more than 280 river cruise vessels that were reviewed based on accommodations, dining, service, and other onboard features, Ama’s ships took the top 11 spots in the rankings.

“AmaWaterways has helped to redefine European river cruising.”

– Douglas Ward, Berlitz River Cruising in Europe

EXPLORE EUROPE BY RIVER The legendary rivers of Europe have long been celebrated in both prose and song. Serving as major highways during the rise and fall of ancient civilizations, these waterways have continued their crucial roles as sources of sustenance, avenues of transportation and facilitators of commerce. Throughout history, major cities, smaller villages, and stalwart fortifications have been built along their banks. Today, travelers that sail on these magnificent rivers will encounter grand capitals like Vienna and Paris, charming hamlets and towns, enchanting castles, and other wondrous scenes from a time long past. You rarely have to wander far from the river bank to discover a wealth of European art, culture, history and architecture.

THE DOURO This major river of the Iberian Peninsula flows from its source in Spain to its outlet in Northern Portugal. It is here that river cruisers will discover the Douro River Valley - the birthplace of port wine and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.

THE GARONNE, DORDOGNE AND GIRONDE ESTUARY In the corner of southwestern France, the Garonne and Dordogne rivers merge together to form the Gironde estuary, which naturally divides the Bordeaux region into left and right banks. Travelers from around the world flock to this region that is well known for its many gastronomic delights. 21

THE SEINE AND RHONE The Seine rises in northeastern France near Dijon, flows through Paris, and continues westward through Normandy to the English Channel. The Rhone flows from its source in the Swiss Alps and travels south to the Mediterranean, linking thousands of vineyards and wineries in southeastern France.

THE DANUBE Captured in literature, art and Strauss’s famous “Blue Danube” waltz, this river is one of the world’s most romantic waterways. Extending for thousands of miles through Central Europe, the Danube flows eastward, passing four capital cities before emptying into the Black Sea.

THE RHINE, MAIN AND MOSEL The Rhine rises in the Swiss Alps and flows into Germany, where it joins the Mosel and its major tributary, the Main. Along these rivers are captivating sights that include castles, stunning vineyards and verdant valleys.

DUTCH AND BELGIAN WATERWAYS A series of connecting rivers, including the Amstel, from which Amsterdam took its name, connect the Netherlands and Belgium. A voyage along these waterways in the spring offers many opportunities to watch nature blossom in breathtaking fashion in this picturesque part of the world. w w w. A m a Wa t e r w a y s . c o m

THE EXOTICS Walk the path less traveled. Discover the magic and beauty of a distant land. See the world through someone else’s eyes. At AmaWaterways, our love for travel inspired us to bring our river cruise expertise to the more remote parts of the world. With our innovative ships, carefully designed itineraries, expert guides and immersive tours, you can explore the exotic in elegance and comfort. Join us on a journey that is sure to delight, amaze and leave you with special memories that will last forever.

THE CHOBE This scenic and amazing waterway, only 50 miles from Victoria Falls, forms the northern boundary of Chobe National Park. It passes through the game-rich ‘Four Corners’ region where Namibia, Zambia, Botswana and Zimbabwe meet, home to nearly 500 species of birds and the largest concentration of elephants in Africa. The river is a rich haven for wildlife, particularly during the dry season from May to October, when water further inland is scarce. In addition to elephants, a variety of other animals are drawn to this important water source, including lions, jackals, leopards, hyenas, giraffes, monkeys, kudu and impalas. Our Africa itineraries, which are a unique combination of a river cruise and immersive land programs, is the ultimate way to experience this must-see part of the world.

THE MEKONG Cruise through Vietnam and Cambodia on the fabled Mekong River, also known as the “Mother of Water.� For centuries, the sagas of ancient empires, colonial powers and modern conflicts have unfolded along its banks. To this day, the river serves as a vital lifeline to millions of people, and on our river cruises you will experience a compelling contrast of past and present. Witness Sampans and motorboats yield to one another as cone-hatted fishermen check their nets while chatting on cellphones. Take in serene monasteries and thatched stilt huts, as well as dense cityscapes in capitals like Phnom Penh. It is an awe-inspiring spectacle that simply must be seen to be believed. Wherever the Mekong takes you, the sincere warmth and friendliness of the Vietnamese and Cambodian people will leave a lasting impression.

THE AYEYARWADY There is no better time than now to explore Myanmar (Burma), where travelers are welcome to experience a land and culture that has been closed off to the rest of the world for decades. Explore this mystic and spiritual destination along the Ayeyarwady, where you will see former royal capitals, thousands of temples and pagodas, and authentic daily life – smiling women in bright sarongs, dark-robed monks and rice farmers leading ox carts. Myanmar is rich with timeless and exotic sights, and the gracious Burmese people are eager to show off their beautiful, unspoiled country.

AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCES On our exotic itineraries, you will have unique opportunities to not only see the sights, but also be immersed in the destination you are visiting. We have carefully selected excursions that will place you amidst the rich and colorful culture of the local inhabitants, rather than merely on the outskirts. Be an adventurer by day – explore the ruins of ancient temples, be blessed by monks in remote monasteries, and delve into the unexplored, untried and unfamiliar. These truly are journeys of a lifetime, and you are sure to return with photos and stories that you can share with friends and family for years to come. From safaris by boat in search of Africa’s “gentle giants” to a trishaw ride down the local streets of Vietnam, no matter which itinerary you choose, an adventure awaits you. Here are just some of the experiences offered in each of our exotic destinations.

CHOOSING A SAFARI AFTER YOUR CRUISE WHATEVER YOUR TASTE, WE HAVE A JOURNEY THAT IS PERFECTLY SUITED FOR YOU

There are many factors to consider when selecting the safari that’s best for you. Two of the most important are where to go and when. We offer four tantalizing land programs after your cruise in Southern and East Africa with departures throughout the year. The winter dry season from April to October is usually considered the most popular, when vegetation is sparse and animals gather at water sources. However, animal viewing is always great and every season has its own unique charms, making Africa an enticing destination almost any time of year. Kruger National Park Area South Africa is renowned for its natural beauty, wildlife, good weather, and diverse range of experiences, from safaris to wine estates to scenic coastal drives to chic urban nightlife. It also boasts some of the largest tracts of untamed wilderness on the entire continent. For safari-goers eager to spot the “Big Five,” the main draw is Kruger, South Africa’s famous national park, and the private game reserves that surround it. Game-viewing in South Africa is favorable year-round. Rovos Rail Step back into the golden age of train travel on an elegant journey through southern Africa’s wild landscapes and scenic wonders. The train has been meticulously restored and you can expect luxurious suites, the finest cuisine featuring fresh local ingredients and regional favorites as well as exceptional five-star service. Carrying only 72 guests, the train boasts two dining cars, two lounge cars, as well as an observation car. To maintain the spirit of travel of a bygone era, there is no Wi-Fi, radio or television. Sit back, relax and enjoy the marvelous scenery as you spot wildlife from the train. Scenic vistas of country towns and lush farmlands enhance the journey. Also, along the way join a game drive through Hwange National Park. All meals and beverages are included throughout your three-night journey, including traditional afternoon tea served each day in the lounge and observation cars. Tanzania and the Serengeti Serengeti National Park in Tanzania boasts one of the most diverse populations of wild animals anywhere on Earth. The best game-viewing may be in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, “Africa’s Eden,” and the Serengeti, where you can observe herds of zebra, wildebeest, gazelle and Africa’s greatest concentration of lion. Tarangire, the sixth largest national park in Africa, will offer you the chance to see the highest density of wild­life outside of the Serengeti ecosystem. You will also visit Lake Manyara National Park, best known for its famous tree-climbing lions.

Responsibility towards the environment forms the foundation upon which the Zambezi Queen was built. • A water jet propulsion system replaces the conventional propeller system, causing no damage to the river bed. • Only the latest fuel efficient and low emission generators are run during daylight hours, with the boat operating on battery power through the night. • Hot water is provided by a solar heating system. • Energy-saving lights throughout. • Water-saving taps and showers. • Onboard sewage processing plant. • Cleaning detergents and soaps are biodegradable. • Five-stage water purification plant, using river water in showers and tap.


TERMS & CONDITIONS Parties: In these terms and conditions, “you” or “passenger” or “participant” refers to the person booking, purchasing or traveling on the cruise, and to individuals traveling as part of that person’s reservation. “We” or “us” refers to Amadeus Waterways, Inc., a California corporation (“AMA”) and AmaWaterways, LLC, a California Limited Liability Company (“AWL”). AMA offers the travel and enters into these terms and conditions with you pursuant to arrangements made with AWL. Deposit and Final Payment: To confirm a cruise or cruise & land reservation, we require a deposit of $400 per person for Europe and Asia itineraries and $2,400 per person for Africa itineraries on or before the deposit due date indicated on the confirmation. Transoceanic airline flights and packages require an additional deposit of $350 per person for economy class or $600 per person for business/first class flights. Certain airline tickets require non-refundable, full payment at the time of reservation. Hotel Extra Nights require a non-refundable deposit of $50 per cabin at the time of confirmation of the hotel availability. Final payment is due no later than 90 days before the travel start date. Pricing: All prices are in US dollars. In the event that a cruise fare listed, quoted or advertised through any website, printed collateral, reservations person, travel agent or any other source is booked, but is incorrect due to an electronic error, typographical error, human error or any other error causing the fare to be listed, quoted or advertised for an amount not intended by AmaWaterways, AmaWaterways reserves the right to correct the erroneous fare by requesting the passenger to pay the correct fare intended, or by canceling the cruise. Airfares, air taxes and air surcharges quoted on your invoice or by a reservation agent are only guaranteed once airfare deposit or full payment is received by AmaWaterways. AmaWaterways reserves the right to increase prices without notice. Prices Do Not Include: Published prices do not include vessel fuel surcharges; passport and visa fees; baggage fees; port charges and fees; travel protection; vaccinations; laundry; additional food and beverages; optional excursions; gratuities or other items or services of a personal nature. Cancellation Charges: In the unfortunate event a participant must cancel travel, notice to AmaWaterways must be via email to Res@ AmaWaterways.com, which must include a return receipt and read notation, or other writing stating clearly and correctly each guest’s name, ship name, start and end date of the cruise and a brief statement of the reason for cancellation. Other forms of notice are not sufficient. The effective date of the cancellation is the date we receive the written cancellation notice. Name changes, a substitution of a participant or a reduction in the number of guests in a stateroom are treated as a cancellation in that all applicable cancellation charges apply. Cancellation charges for bookings within charter and part-charter agreements are as per the charter contract. All other cancellation charges are per-person, based on the cancellation date, as follows:

Passport and Visas: A valid passport is required for each participant. Passports must be valid for at least six (6) months after the scheduled return date to your home country. For travel to Asia, we require a copy of your valid passport prior to or at final payment. If not received at this time, embarkation may be denied and cancellation penalties will apply. Guests on the Vietnam/Cambodia Cruise & Land program must obtain a Multiple Entry Visa for Vietnam, as they will have two different points of entry into Vietnam, and a Single Entry Visa for Cambodia. Guests on the cruise only Vietnam/Cambodia itinerary will require a single entry visa for Vietnam and Cambodia. For travel to Africa, a valid passport with 8 open/non-stamped pages is required. At publication time, a visa is required for a US citizen to travel to Turkey, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Kenya, Tanzania and Zimbabwe (as well as numerous other countries). Non-US citizens must consult the appropriate consulates regarding visa and other document requirements. Obtaining required visas and any other required travel documentation, and assuring these are complete and correct in all ways, is the sole responsibility of each participant. We are not in a position to obtain or verify the accuracy or completeness of any participant’s visa or other required documentation and shall not be responsible or liable for delay or missed portion of any part of the itinerary or other problems resulting from the participant lacking the appropriate travel documentation. GENERAL PROVISIONS Cruise and Cruise & Land Itineraries: Carrier seeks to provide services as published or stated in the final documents. But deviations to planned cruise, cruise & land itinerary or any other aspects of the travel may occur. If conditions make cruise routes unsafe for navigation or in other respects, or raise sufficient doubt about safety, Carrier reserves the right to modify or provide alternate services. These may include, but are not limited to, providing accommodation on the docked ship and/or substituting ground arrangements. An effort will be made to try to arrange elements of the cruise and cruise tour similar to those originally planned, but the level of similarity may vary. Except as otherwise provided in your Passenger Ticket Contract, such changes will not entitle you to any credit or a refund. Cruise, cruise & land routes, and all other aspects of the cruise and travel are subject to change with or without notice. Hotel Accommodations: We will seek to use hotels listed (if any) on your confirmation. Changes may be necessary, therefore use of such hotels is not assured. An effort will be made to substitute similar hotels, but the level of similarity may vary. Standard policy for hotels is to have rooms available for check-in no earlier than 3:00 p.m. Subject to the discretion of the hotel, triple-occupancy hotel accommodations may involve the use of hotel rooms with just two beds. Only those guests who have elected to take our Cruise & Land program on the brochure itinerary dates will receive transfers between the hotel(s) and the ship.

PARTICIPANT AGREES THAT WE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE, LOSS (INCLUDING PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH, AND LOSS OF OR DAMAGE TO PROPERTY) OR EXPENSE OCCASIONED BY ANY ACT OR OMISSION OF ANY SUPPLIER PROVIDING SERVICES, OR ANY PROVIDER OF A TRAVEL PROTECTION PLAN, OR INSURER, OR OF ANY OTHER PERSON. If the services of a supplier cannot be delivered or there are changes in any planned service for any reason beyond our control, we will make an effort to arrange similar services. Any resulting additional expenses will be participant’s responsibility.
