A Warm Welcome From AmaWaterways

AmaWaterways celebrated the opening of its 2023 European season following a successful Cruise Managers’ Kickoff Meeting onboard AmaMagna hosted by Co-Founder and Executive Vice-President, Kristin Karst.

Guests are now welcome aboard AmaWaterways’ fleet of 19 award-winning ships sailing Europe’s majestic waterways, including five ships cruising the scenic rivers of France, five ships dedicated to the early spring Tulip Time cruises and another ten welcoming guests on the Rhine, Main, Moselle, Danube and Douro rivers.

Karst said: “Our Cruise Managers add that extra sparkle to our guests’ vacations and being able to start off the 2023 European season with an in-person gathering was very special.”

She continued: “We are seeing strong demand for 2023 travel and are receiving many last-minute reservations for all dates, including this summer. Traveling with the whole family creates special memories that last a lifetime and July and August departures are exquisite months to travel, when everyone is free and able to enjoy our included hiking and biking tours, wine tastings and wonderful culinary experiences.”

This sailing season, the company is introducing a brand-new full-sized pickleball court on the Sun Deck of AmaMagna. Tapping into the fastest-growing sport in the United States, AmaMagna is the first river cruise ship to feature a full-sized pickleball court, allowing guests an opportunity to socialize and stay active while creating lifelong vacation memories.

Highlights of AmaWaterways’ 2023 European Season include immersive experiences in France; all new Seven River journeys; an expanded season on the Douro River; new itineraries and more.
