Although a heat wave is sweeping large parts of North America, as far as California-based AmaWaterways is concerned it’s Christmas in July. The line recently announced their new “Companion Flies Free” promotion on select Holiday sailings this December.
Available on 7-night Christmas Time voyages operating from Nuremberg to Budapest or reverse, these European winter wonderland voyages visit some of that continent’s most impressive cities and towns. Of particular note are calls to medieval Regensburg and culturally historic Vienna. Guests will be able to explore the traditional and highly-popular Christmas Markets that line the cobblestone squares of each town, indulging in regional food, local wares, and of course, traditional mulled wine or cider.
Departure dates from the United States for these Christmas Time voyages are available on December 15, 17, 18 and 23, 2011.
This offer is also available on a special 9-night Christmas and New Year’s Celebration Cruise sailing from Nuremberg to Amsterdam. Departing from the United States on December 20th, 2011, this voyage also features a complimentary two-night stay aboard the MS AmaLegro in the port of Amsterdam, as well as onboard gala celebrations for both Christmas and New Year’s.
“Many guests tell us that the holiday season is their favorite time to visit Europe. Towns and villages are aglow with decorations, bustling Christmas markets and a warm, welcoming sprit. Our ships also join in the festivities, with tree-trimming parties, crew caroling and even a visit from Santa Claus. We’re so happy to provide this exciting opportunity to experience the holiday season with us.” said Kristin Karst, AmaWaterways’ Executive Vice President and Co-Owner.
This offer is only available on new bookings made by August 31, 2011, and is not combinable with any other promotion or shipboard credit. In order to be eligible for the Companion Flies Free offer on the dates above, guests much purchase airfare from AmaWaterways at the published brochure rate.
Christmas river cruises are immensely popular for both couples and families, and tend to be booked well in advance, which is why this offer is a great deal for those who are currently in the midst of planning their December Holiday getaways.
After all, winter in July sounds mighty good.
