On AmaWaterways 15-day Magnificent Europe voyages between Budapest and Amsterdam, you’ll experience three rivers, five countries and scenic cruising through the heartland of Europe.
You’ll experience all of this from the comfort of your floating boutique hotel — the 164-guest AmaSonata — with plush accommodations, award-winning cuisine and service that is professional, personal and perhaps most important of all, forever memorable.
You’ll see Europe’s small towns and its grand old capitals, both from your floating boutique hotel and on complimentary excursions ashore where you’ll see world-class attractions, participate in Europe’s age-old traditions or join active excursions on hikes and bikes.
Welcome to AmaWaterways Magnificent Europe.
You’ll cruise the Rhine river, the Main River, the Main-Danube Canal and the Blue Danube. Part of the beauty of this 15-day voyage is watching the landscape of Europe pass as your ship makes its way along the rivers. For those who value daytime cruising past the beautiful landscape of Europe, cruising between Budapest and Amsterdam is hard to beat.
The duration of the cruise, spanning 14 nights/15 days, is perfect for those who have the time for a truly immersive European experience. You’ll enjoy scenic sailing on many days. Take a seat in the lounge or up on the top deck to observe the beauty of five countries on three distinct rivers.
Each day, you’ll have the chance to step ashore in storied cities and fabled villages where you can choose from a selection of complimentary shore excursions, all managed by your friendly cruise director.
AmaWaterways also carries a fleet of bicycles on its ships for complimentary use on independent and guided tours. Join a group for a tour along scenic bike-friendly roads or set out on your own to explore cities and the countryside.
Back on the ship, you’ll find all of the comforts of home, from balconied staterooms with iMac entertainment systems to complimentary WiFi throughout the ship to a beautiful lounge with floor-to-ceiling windows and a pool with a swim-up bar.
Dining is one of the highlights of the cruise, with two dining venues, the main restaurant, open for breakfast lunch and dinner, and The Chef’s Table, which offers a culinary journey in a room with an outstanding view.
The great thing about both restaurants is that they are free of charge and with complimentary beer and wine served during lunch and dinner. Bon Appetit!
Each day of your cruise choose from a selection of complimentary tours that match your own personal style, from easy walkers to active excursions to immersive tours where you’ll participate in some of the traditions of the European lifestyle.
See Europe like you’ve never seen it before. Enjoy the landscape from the perspective of the river or from soaring heights ashore where Europe’s gorgeous river valleys are laid out before you.
Visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the Cologne Cathedral and enjoy scenic journeys through such natural wonders as the Rhine Gorge
End your Magnificent Europe sailing on an illumination tour in the city of Budapest. It’s the perfect ending for a wonderful voyage.
