Guildford, UK - (Jun. 21, 2018) -
AmaWaterways’ new ‘Europe, Asia and Africa’ brochure is out this week including three new ships, ‘cruise and rail’ travel options, two new itineraries and an expanded wellness offering.
Stuart Perl, Managing Director commented “AmaWaterways constantly strives to innovate and develop a product that matches the needs of our customers. I’m very proud of the 2019 programme we are delivering on our award-winning fleet. With three new ships to choose from, more guests than ever will be able to enjoy the warm hospitality & unforgettable experiences that we have on offer.”
‘Cruise and Rail’ offered for first time
River cruising has become more accessible to those who don’t wish to fly, with ‘cruise and rail’ options available from this week. Guests booking one of AmaWaterways’ three French itineraries and a further seven voyages on the Rhine and Moselle, will now be able to book train travel from London to their chosen departure port. Return train travel and private transfers to the ship will cost just £129 per person for those booking by 30 September 2018.
Not one, not two, but three new ships for 2019
2019 will be a busy year for AmaWaterways, with a record three new ships set to launch. AmaMora, (a sister ship to AmaLea and Berlitz Guide number one rated river cruise ship, AmaKristina), will offer a choice of itineraries on the Rhine, while the smaller, more intimate AmaDouro makes her debut on Portugal and Spain’s Douro River.
The revolutionary AmaMagna will also enter service in May 2019 and will offer a unique river cruising experience.
She will offer an unprecedented range of facilities including a choice of restaurants, Zen Wellness Studio and watersports platform as well as offering far more personal space than traditional river cruise ships. The new Berlitz River Cruising guide which launched this month described her as a ‘stunning, double-width rivership’ having ‘oodles of space, comfort and pizzazz.’
More itineraries to choose from
Two exciting new itineraries have also been added for 2019 including the ‘Christmas Markets on the Danube’ trip on AmaMagna and AmaLea and ‘Flavours of Portugal & Spain’ on AmaVida.
Wellness hosts rolled out across European fleet
Wellness remains a key theme with AmaWaterways’ guests, who enjoy welcome the opportunity to remain active while on holiday whilst indulging in the fine wines and cuisine on-board. Following positive feedback about the six Wellness Hosts who were introduced earlier this year, it has been confirmed that from Summer 2019, the Wellness Programme will be offered across the European fleet (excluding Douro).
Flight savings for early bookers
Guests booking by 30 September 2018 can add return flights from the UK mainland to Europe for just £99 per person, with overseas transfers to and from the ship available for an additional £30 return. The offer is available for all 2019 European departures and no regional supplements are payable.
