Have you ever thought of traveling through Europe on a river cruise? It is by far the most enjoyable way to explore Europe in grand style. I cruised the Danube, Europe’s second largest river, with AMAWaterways.
Cruising on one of their boats is a great way to visit the small villages and towns on the rivers. When you arrive in a city you usually have a ½ day city tour with a local guide. The schedules for the cruises are carefully planned to make sure ample leisure time is available to explore the charming towns, quaint villages and vibrant cities on your own, too.
You stay in beautifully appointed cabins and only have to unpack once. The food is wonderful and the entertainment each night is offered by local musicians.
Their ships hold 148 passengers with 41 crew members to serve you. Most of the shore excursions are included. AMA even provides complimentary bicycles for you to borrow whenever you choose and free internet service is included so you can stay connected with friends and family back home.
River cruising with AMA is the trip of a lifetime because of their extraordinary staff, gourmet meals and exquisite ships. All aboard!!
