Experience these inaugural AmaWaterways journeys in 2025

If you are already planning a European getaway, why not maximize your international airfare and extend your journey another week? Longer vacations are growing in popularity, and we have curated three all-new 14-night itineraries through Europe debuting in 2025 and other exciting additions to our river cruise journeys! 

Cruise the Seine and Beyond

Explore France to your heart’s content with our two new 14-night itineraries with attractive cruise prices that include your ship-to-ship transfers! During both of these longer journeys, you will enjoy seven nights on the Seine River, taking in the shining lights of Paris and following in the footsteps of historic Impressionists painters. After seven nights, disembark your ship and transfer by train to your second ship for the next leg of your journey.

On our Grand Seine & Bordeaux itinerary, explore the world-famous Bordeaux wine region, savoring the renowned Grand Cru Classé wine and elegant châteaux along the Garonne and Dordogne rivers. If you embark on our Grand Seine & Rhône itinerary, enjoy an exceptional experience along the Rhône River, immersing yourself in the culinary delights of Lyon, medieval village wonders of Les Baux de Provence, and the reflections of ancient Roman influence in Avignon.

The Netherlands and the Rhine

Unearth hidden gems in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, and Switzerland when you embark on our new 14-night Grand Rhine & Dutch Canals itinerary! Explore Belgium’s “City of Diamonds,” Antwerp. During your extended time in Amsterdam, take in the works of Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Van Gogh on our included tour inside the breathtaking Rijksmuseum. Transport yourself back in time as you visit villages straight out of storybooks such as Rüdesheim and Colmar. Glide through the Rhine Gorge, witnessing the splendor of over 40 castles along the riverbanks while also enjoying the opportunity to explore iconic Dutch fortresses such as Castle de Haar – all in the same river cruise journey.

Follow the Music of the Danube River

On our new Celebration of Music itinerary, you will cruise along the Danube and discover how this river inspired legendary composers such as Mozart and Strauss. Follow their famous melodies through cities such as Vienna, the “City of Waltzes,” where you will be treated to an evening concert in one of the city’s magnificent venues. In Budapest, you can take your moment in the spotlight on stage at the Hungarian State Opera House, host to countless operas and ballets for over a century, then visit the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music, founded by virtuoso pianist and composer Franz Liszt. In addition to honoring the river’s melodious legacy, our new 2025 itinerary offers an unprecedented day of scenic cruising and the convenience of traveling roundtrip from Budapest. Board one of four ships in our exceptional fleet, including our flagship AmaMagna, which boasts spacious balcony suites, four unique included restaurants, an expansive wellness studio, an intimate onboard cinema and a full-sized pickleball court.

New Destinations and Excursions on Well-Loved Itineraries

If you have sailed our Tulip Time itinerary before, return to the Netherlands and Belgium and enjoy all-new destinations! Starting in 2025, explore picturesque Giethoorn, known as the “Dutch Venice” featuring thatched roof houses connected by flowing canals, and Bruinisse, a quaint village frozen in time.

In both 2024 and 2025, guests embarking on our Gems of Southeast Europe river cruise can also look forward to new excursions in Vukovar, Croatia. Visit the Vucedol Museum, home to fascinating exhibits on prehistoric culture and one of the most important archaeological sites in Europe, or choose a guided tour of Osijek, a Roman settlement turned impressive city.
