AmaWaterways has launched its 2023 Europe season, with 19 ships sailing Europe’s waterways, including five ships in France, five ships dedicated to the early spring Tulip Time cruises and another 10 on the Rhine, Main, Moselle, Danube and Douro rivers.

The start of this year’s season followed a successful Cruise Managers’ Kickoff Meeting onboard AmaMagna hosted by AmaWaterways’ co-founder and Executive Vice-President, Kristin Karst.

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,” said Karst.

She noted that AmaWaterways is seeing strong demand for 2023 travel, with many last-minute reservations for all dates, including this summer.

New this year, the company is introducing a full-sized pickleball court on the Sun Deck of AmaMagna. AmaMagna is the first river cruise ship to feature the full-sized pickleball court.


Here’s a look at highlights of AmaWaterways’ 2023 Europe season …

  • Immersive experiences in France: AmaWaterways passengers can look forward to specially curated excursions in France this season, such as exclusive wine festivals, truffle hunts and city tours throughout France’s most sought-after regions. Since many of AmaWaterways’ France sailings depart on Thursdays, travellers can reserve combination cruises, visiting up to three different rivers during one journey, extending their adventures while exploring different regions and historical landmarks and saving 10% on consecutive cruises
  • All-new Seven River Journeys: In 2023, AmaWaterways is officially debuting its history-making Seven River Journeys, taking guests through 14 countries over 45 days.

  • Extended season on the Douro: AmaWaterways has extended its 2023 Portugal river cruising season, with 14 additional roundtrip Porto sailings onboard AmaDouro. Cruises on the Douro are available now through the end of December

In 2023, AmaWaterways is also offering travellers short on time a new opportunity to explore the Danube with its five-night Majestic Capitals of the Danube itinerary. Guests will explore three Budapest, Bratislava, and Vienna with a choice of included daily excursions such as hilltop hikes, bike tours, and more.
