AmaWaterways’ 2020 preview brochure introduces new land extensions and itineraries on its ships – including AmaMagna – all of which are now open for reservations.
Highlighted points from the brochure include:
Chartering New Waters with AmaMagna
AmaMagna will cruise the seven-night Gems of Southeast Europe itinerary between Budapest, Hungary, and Giurgiu, Romania through Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania with stops at sites such as the Belogradchik Rocks and the UNESCO-designated Rock-Hewn Churches of Ivanovo.
AmaMagna will also sail the 14-night Grand Danube Cruise, between Vilshofen, Germany and Giurgui, Romania traveling to seven countries and offering scenic views through the Iron Gates between Serbia and Romania.
In 2020, AmaWaterways will offer two new itineraries onboard AmaDante. One of which is the seven-night Treasures of the Main & Rhine itinerary sailing from Nuremberg to Amsterdam taking guests through scenery and 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 program in Prague, the “Golden City of a Hundred Spires.”
In addition to the Treasures of the Main & Rhine, AmaWaterways will add the Vineyards of the Rhine & Moselle itinerary on board AmaDante from Amsterdam to Luxemburg to which guests can 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 stops include the villages of Rüdesheim, Cochem, and Bernkastel before ending the cruise with an optional three-night extension in Paris, the “City of Lights.”
AmaWaterways announced more than 70 hosted wine-themed cruises in 2020, two of which will be on the new Treasures of the Main & Rhine itinerary. On these cruises, guests enjoy onboard lectures and wine tastings led by wine experts.
New Land Extensions
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 in Istanbul takes guests through the cultural landscape, as well as a tour of the legendary Topkapi Palace.
On the Colors 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. With the Nice extension, guests can explore the French Riviera, including visits to Aix-en-Provence, Monaco, and Monte Carlo.
