Two new itineraries and more land extensions from AmaWaterways in 2020

Two new itineraries, more land extensions and an expanded programme for new ship AmaMagna feature in AmaWaterways' 2020 programme.

Only a year after her launch, AmaMagna will cruise new waters, heading to the lower Danube for four selected departures.

AmaDante of AmaWaterways
There are two new and enriching itineraries on-board AmaDante in 2020

The innovative ship’s seven-night Gems of Southeast Europe itinerary passes through Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania with stops at fascinating sites such as the ethereal Belogradchik Rocks and the UNESCO-designated Rock-Hewn Churches of Ivanovo.

Additionally, AmaMagna will join other ships in the fleet in offering the 14-night Grand Danube Cruise, between Vilshofen, Germany and Giurgui, Romania, travelling to seven countries and offering scenic views through the Iron Gates between Serbia and Romania.

In 2020, there are two new and enriching itineraries on-board AmaDante. The seven-night Treasures of the Main & Rhine sailing from Nuremberg to Amsterdam will take guests through storybook scenery and iconic landmarks as well as through the locks of Main-Danube Canal.

This new itinerary will be packaged with an optional three-night pre-cruise land programme in Prague, the “Golden City of a Hundred Spires”.

Meanwhile, the new Vineyards of the Rhine & Moselle itinerary from Amsterdam to Luxemburg allows guests to add a two-night stay in Amsterdam before embarking on a seven-night cruise through the UNESCO-designated Rhine and vineyard-clad Moselle valleys.

Other scenic stops include the charming villages of Rüdesheim, Cochem and Bernkastel before ending the cruise with an optional three-night extension in Paris, the “City of Lights”.

To meet the growing demand for its wine cruises, AmaWaterways will host more than 70 wine-themed voyages in 2020, two of them on the new Treasures of the Main & Rhine itinerary with on-board lectures and wine tastings led by celebrated wine experts and shore excursions with engaging epicurean experiences.

AmaWaterways will yet again enhance its pre and post-cruise land extensions in 2020, offering guests immersive experiences in each destination.

Those on board the Gems of Southeast Europe and Grand Danube itineraries will now have the choice of a new three-night land extension in Istanbul, Turkey, as an alternative to a four-night land extension in Bucharest and Brasov. The new extension highlights the most iconic spots and the history behind the city, as well as featuring a tour of the legendary Topkapi Palace.

On the Colours of Provence and Spain itinerary, a new three-night land extension in Nice, France will also be offered as an alternative to a three-night land extension in Barcelona. Guests can explore the French Riviera, including visits to the stunning Aix-en-Provence, Monaco and Monte Carlo.

For those wishing to book early and secure their cruise of choice, there are savings of up to £1,500 per couple for bookings made before 30 April, 2019. Prices start from £1,639.
