If you like to plan ahead, AmaWaterways is offering up some compelling reasons to do so. The line has just released their 2016 itineraries for booking, complete with a new brochure that is available now online and should be in-print by the time you read this.
The coming year holds plenty of excitement for the California-based river cruise line. They’ll be launching two new ships, inaugurating service in Bordeaux, France for the first time with their Taste of Bordeaux itinerary, and their popular In Celebration of Wine theme cruises will return once again, with 34 separate sailings dedicated to the celebration of the grape. Five brand-new voyages will also be designed exclusively for art enthusiasts; a novel idea considering just how abundant and diverse the modern and classic art scene in Europe is.
“AmaWaterways is delighted to announce that travelers can now book the river cruise trip of a lifetime in 2016,” said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-owner of AmaWaterways. “The debut of our new brochure is an exciting time for all of us at AmaWaterways. We are thrilled to introduce an array of new ships, itineraries and destinations, giving travelers even more options to create unforgettable memories.”
In 2016, AmaWaterways will take delivery of two new vessels: the 158-guest AmaViola and her sister, AmaStella. Both vessels will feature staterooms that connect (perfect for cruising with family and friends), as well as larger suites. AmaWaterways’ signature “Twin Balconies” will return, offering up both French and step-out balconies within a single stateroom or suite. But both vessels will also feature some new enhancements like heated swimming pools.
Beyond the company’s new seven-night sailings through the heart of France’s amazing Bordeaux region, famed for its wine production, AmaWaterways is also carving a well-deserved reputation for themselves in the exotic river cruise market. In 2016, AmaWaterways returns to Southeast Asia and Africa, with departures that sail the Chobe River in Africa; the Mekong River in Vietnam and Cambodia; and the mysterious Irrawaddy River that flows through the treasures of Myanmar.
We may only be a few months in to 2015…but it’s never too early to plan your next adventure!
