AmaWaterways is an award-winning river cruise line that was voted as the Best River Cruise Line in the Travvy Awards for 2015. This holiday season is the best and most affordable time of year to stir a sense of renewal, wanderlust, and luxury by embarking on one of their holiday river cruises. You can save $3,000 on their best staterooms and experience the majesty of the Europe’s Christmas Markets with AmaWaterways’ two holiday-themed cruise packages: the Christmas Time Cruise and Christmas on the Rhine. Both packages include 7 nights of adventure!

Adventure Awaits

You’ll have breakfast in Amsterdam and visit famous landmarks (Anne Frank’s house, the fabled Skinny Bridge, and brewery windmill), take a stroll through Strasbourg, the oldest and best Christmas market; marvel at over 180 stalls that are brimming with unique German gifts, such as the Plum People (folksy figurines made from dried prunes), in Nuremberg; and tantalize the palate with the savory soft German pretzels in Cologne, which features more than 150 stalls in front of the city’s breathtaking Cathedral. This is just a mere sampling of the itineraries! Here’s a guide to river cruising in Europe.
