Fly for Free

ON 2020 EUROPEAN RIVER CRUISES To celebrate our new 2020 European River Cruise Programme, you can enjoy complimentary return flights and overseas transfers. Choose from any of our 25 European itineraries across all dates in 2020 with fares from ÂŁ2,139 per person. Travel from any UK mainland, Belfast or Dublin airport, before being whisked straight to the ship for your luxurious river cruise. At the end of your holiday, join your complimentary transfer in time for your flight home.

To take advantage of this fantastic offer, book by 30th June 2019. We’ve highlighted some of our favourite itineraries over the next few pages. For full details of the 2020 programme and information about our brand new double-width ship, AmaMagna, visit our website or take a look at our 2020 Preview Brochure.


Welcome on board

...the highest rated fleet

At AmaWaterways, we love what we do — providing our guests with the best travel experiences possible. It’s a concept that permeates every aspect of our river cruises, from the design of our ships to the high levels of service we deliver to our guests. This attention to detail is recognised in the independent Berlitz River Cruising Guide. AmaWaterways’ ships earned six of the top ten positions and were awarded the overall highest rated fleet for the quality of accommodation, cuisine and service. The AmaWaterways experience starts with our ships. The majority of our award-winning fleet carries at most just 164 guests, with 196 on the AmaMagna, meaning larger staterooms and suites for you to relax in and the all important sun deck pool to soak up the views. Whichever river you choose to sail, you are sure to feel at home from the moment you step on board.

Features

OF YOUR EUROPEAN RIVER CRUISE SHIP: • Each year, we build innovative ships with new features and designs, such as staterooms with connecting doors, as well as triple accommodations for group and family travel • AmaWaterways was the first to offer Twin Balcony staterooms • All ships have a heated pool or whirlpool, with many offering a unique swim-up bar • Complimentary Wi-Fi on board • Services of a professional Cruise Manager throughout your cruise


Features

OF YOUR EUROPEAN RIVER CRUISE: • Fleetwide Wellness Programme with an onboard Host providing a variety of exercise classes and wellness discussions • Special Interest Tours - designed to give small groups the chance to be even more immersed in a destination with experiences such as a visit to a Belgian chocolatier to learn about their craft • We operate small excursion groups enabling you to connect more with your guide and your surroundings • A variety of excursion paces for speedy and more relaxed walkers

Active Discovery

... your choice to explore on shore

On an AmaWaterways river cruise, you don’t just pass through a destination — you experience it. Each one of our itineraries is carefully crafted to connect you to the heart of every place you visit. With small groups led by knowledgeable English-speaking guides, each tour ensures an intimate setting to discover the sights and landmarks as well as the local culture and history. Choose from one of several options — all of which are included in your cruise fare. There’s always a city tour designed to show the highlights and landmarks in grand capitals and charming villages alike. Have you already been to Nuremberg? Instead of taking the city tour, indulge in a bratwurst and beer tasting on one of our Special Interest Tours, which are specially designed to place you in the midst of local life. Are you looking for something more active? See the beautiful scenery of Austria’s Wachau Valley with a guided bike tour along the Danube. The choice is yours.


Savour the Flavours

...of multiple restaurants

Your taste buds are sure to be impressed with a range of delectable dining venues on board. Personalise your dining experience throughout your cruise and enjoy our world-class service for every meal - don’t be surprised when your waiter remembers how you like your eggs in the morning and what your wine of choice of is. Our expert chefs craft menus that feature exquisite, locallyinspired cuisine. From the spread of dishes both at the buffet and from the à la carte menu, experience delicious flavours from the regions you sail through. Dinner is a multi-course affair with wine recommendations that accompany visually stunning, delicious dishes. Try local favourites or something more familiar, from classic favourites, to health-conscious selections highlighted within your daily menus. For those wanting something more unique and experimental, The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant offers a wonderful and intimate tasting menu experience.

Features

OF YOUR EUROPEAN RIVER CRUISE: • AmaWaterways has been inducted into La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, a prestigious culinary society dedicated to fine cuisine • Watch the chef prepare your special multi-course meal right in front of you at The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant at no extra charge • Specially chosen regional wines are paired with each lunch & dinner, with our compliments • Sip & Sail cocktail hour with complimentary wine, beer, spirits and soft drinks
