Dear Traveler, At AmaWaterways, we love what we do — providing our guests with the best travel experiences possible. In fact, “Ama” is derived from the Latin word for “love.” It is a concept that permeates every aspect of our river cruises, from the design of our ships to the development of our itineraries to the high levels of service we deliver to our guests. We always look to innovate, offer exciting new destinations and add extra value for each and every guest who travels with us. Since 2002, we have expanded our global fleet to 20 ships. AmaKristina launching in 2017 and AmaLea in 2018 will include staterooms with connecting rooms to accommodate more than two guests and our revolutionary acclaimed twin-balconies. We’ll also introduce six new expertly crafted itineraries in Europe, as well as new itineraries in Asia and Africa. And we will continue to enrich our always-included shore excursions with more choices for our guests to personalize their experience as well as provide even more options to be as active as they wish. AmaWaterways was the first river cruise line to offer complimentary bicycles for guests to use, and today, we recognize our guests wish to continue their health and wellness program when they travel. Therefore, we have curated a comprehensive selection of exclusive guided biking and hiking tours for those who wish to be more active and year after year we offer more varied menus with healthier options. We are always and whole-heartedly dedicated to the happiness of our guests. Whichever destination you decide to explore with us, you’re sure to fall in love with our river cruises. On behalf of the entire AmaWaterways family, we look forward to welcoming you on board soon. Sincerely,

Rudi Schreiner President

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 seen in the chart below. 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

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. Cancellation: Carrier reserves the right to cancel, change or postpone any cruise departure date and itinerary. In the event of a complete cancellation of a departure by Carrier, we will refund monies paid for the cruise or cruise & land package to those participants who have not previously cancelled.

AMAPRIMA IN PASSAU, GERMANY


OUR VISION Family-owned and operated, AmaWaterways has been a passion project for its founders since its creation fifteen years ago. But the story truly began long before this. Born in Vienna, at the heart of the Danube and with a love for adventure, travel and architecture, President Rudi Schreiner designed his first ship back in 1975 while sailing the Amazon for seven months. From there, it wasn’t long before he was spearheading innovative and memorable experiences for other travelers throughout Europe. In 1992, upon completion of the Rhine-Main-Danube canal, Rudi became a driving force for river cruise travel, developing operations and itineraries for many of today’s major cruise lines. He continues constantly innovating and reimagining what it means to travel by river—and for these efforts has been recognized by travel agents worldwide as the “Most Innovative Cruise Executive” several years in a row, as well as being presented the prestigious “Lifetime Achievement Award” by Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA)—the only river cruise executive to ever win this award. Executive Vice President, Co-Founder and Co-Owner Kristin Karst discovered her love of river cruise traveling early on as well, having been born in Dresden along the Elbe River. She brings her extensive experience in luxury travel, river cruising and customer service to AmaWaterways. Rudi and Kristin partnered with Jimmy Murphy, a brilliant travel entrepreneur who built Brendan Vacations, one of the most successful tour operations in the United States. His son Gary, who played a major part at Brendan, now carries on his father’s tradition in his role as Vice President of Sales. These families came together with the goal to create the premiere travel experience for AmaWaterways’ guests. Fifteen years, and over 20 ships later, award-winning AmaWaterways continues to be the leading pioneer in river cruising. With a commitment to innovation and astute attention to detail, every AmaWaterways guest can be assured the most exceptional travel experience possible.

Best River Cruise Line for families & Active Cruisers

BIKE TOUR IN VIENNA


MORE ACTIVE WAYS TO DISCOVER In addition to our walking tours, which are available at gentle, regular and active paces, we’ve introduced unique options for those who really want to get their heart rates going as they experience Europe.

EXPLORE ON TWO WHEELS We carry a fleet of bicycles and helmets on board (which you can use free of charge), so you can see Europe’s enchanting scenery on riverside pathways while getting some exercise. We dock close to many city centers and small towns, where you’ll be able to ride alongside the locals. Feel free to grab a bike and join one of our exclusive guided tours, or go discover on your own. Below are examples of ways to explore by bicycle on our cruises.  Bike along the beautiful Danube River in Austria’s Wachau Valley  Tour Cologne’s Old Town and Cathedral along the Rhine River  See the medieval city of Rouen in France’s historic Normandy region, near the Seine River  Journey along the scenic shores of three rivers—the Danube, Inn and Ilz—past wooden hills and beaches of Poplars

GO FOR A HIKE The beauty of Europe doesn’t just lie in its architecture and landmarks – there are also breathtaking things to be seen when you venture out into nature. That’s why we’ve designed special hikes that will take you a bit off the beaten path in some very beautiful destinations. Here are some examples of hiking opportunities.  Trek up to the Veste Oberhaus in Passau, Germany for incredible views over Old Passau  Make your way up to Dürnstein Fortress, where it is said that Richard the Lionheart was once held captive  Hike up the Philosopher’s Path to a panoramic view of Heidelberg and the Necker River  Journey from the ship to the Old Town in Strasbourg, France

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 who 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.

THE SEINE AND RHÔNE The Seine rises in northeastern France near Dijon, flows through Paris, and continues westward through Normandy to the English Channel. The Rhône 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 MOSELLE The Rhine originates in the Swiss Alps and flows into Germany, where it joins the Moselle 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.

Dear Traveler, At AmaWaterways, we love what we do — providing our guests with the best travel experiences possible. In fact, “Ama” is derived from the Latin word for “love.” It is a concept that permeates every aspect of our river cruises, from the design of our ships to the development of our itineraries to the high levels of service we deliver to our guests. We always look to innovate, offer exciting new destinations and add extra value for each and every guest who travels with us. Since 2002, we have expanded our global fleet to 20 ships. AmaKristina launching in 2017 and AmaLea in 2018 will include staterooms with connecting rooms to accommodate more than two guests and our revolutionary acclaimed twin-balconies. We’ll also introduce six new expertly crafted itineraries in Europe, as well as new itineraries in Asia and Africa. And we will continue to enrich our always-included shore excursions with more choices for our guests to personalize their experience as well as provide even more options to be as active as they wish. AmaWaterways was the first river cruise line to offer complimentary bicycles for guests to use, and today, we recognize our guests wish to continue their health and wellness program when they travel. Therefore, we have curated a comprehensive selection of exclusive guided biking and hiking tours for those who wish to be more active and year after year we offer more varied menus with healthier options. We are always and whole-heartedly dedicated to the happiness of our guests. Whichever destination you decide to explore with us, you’re sure to fall in love with our river cruises. On behalf of the entire AmaWaterways family, we look forward to welcoming you on board soon. Sincerely,

Rudi Schreiner President

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 seen in the chart below. 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. Cancellation: Carrier reserves the right to cancel, change or postpone any cruise departure date and itinerary. In the event of a complete cancellation of a departure by Carrier, we will refund monies paid for the cruise or cruise & land package to those participants who have not previously cancelled. Disclaimer of Responsibility: AMA’s arrangements are with AWL, and they arrange with others for services described in this confirmation and in our brochures. Transport on river cruise ships
