As the river cruise market grows, one trend cruise companies are noticing is a demand for personalized experiences. From active and unique shore excursions to the option of connecting staterooms, diverse menus, and pre-cruise land extensions, AmaWaterways can customize a river cruise vacation to every guest’s needs and wants.
AmaWaterways has extended its 2-for-1 land offer on 2019 Mekong river cruises until October 31, 2018. This cruise gives guests the opportunity to not only visit off-the-beaten-path villages in Vietnam and Cambodia, but to experience the UNESCO-designated Angkor Archaeological Complex in Siem Reap.
