AmaWaterways Making River Cruising A Soulful Experience

Following a positive response to its inaugural Soulful Experience in France this summer, AmaWaterways has announced a new addition to the 2024 lineup of Soulful Experience river cruise and land packages celebrating Black history and culture along the rivers.

Sailing though Portugal from Nov. 13 to Nov. 23, 2024, the 10-night Enticing Douro Soulful Experience encompasses a three-night pre-cruise land package in Lisbon before embarking on AmaDouro in Porto for a seven-night river cruise along the picturesque Douro River.

In addition, AmaWaterways is excited to share that there is still limited availability on three other Soulful Experience cruise and land packages in 2024: the 10-night Colors of Provence Soulful Experiences  departing June 13 (includes three nights in Paris post-cruise) and June 17 (includes three nights in Paris pre-cruise) as well as the 11-night Secrets of Egypt & The Nile Soulful Experience starting on May 17 with a pre-cruise land package in Cairo.

Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-founder of AmaWaterways, said: “Our first Soulful Experience cruise in France in August 2023 sold out almost immediately and we are deeply touched by the amazing feedback from our guests and travel partners, as well as the demand for new sailings in 2024. We are thrilled to offer our guests unique opportunities to create special moments together as they celebrate Black history and culture in 2024 along the beautiful waterways of Portugal, France and Egypt.’’

AmaWaterways will soon unveil more details on five brand-new Soulful Experiences in 2025, shining light on Black history and culture in Egypt, South Africa, France, Colombia and Portugal.
