Responding to the current demand for longer more immersive vacations, AmaWaterways has unveiled complimentary pre or post-cruise land packages as add-ons to select Europe, Egypt and Mekong River cruises for groups and FIT travellers in 2023 and exclusively for groups in 2024. 

Now available for new reservations made until Dec. 31, 2022, this offer provides guests a variety of complimentary two, three or four-night land packages as an extension to their river cruise vacation, allowing further exploration of the surrounding destinations where their river cruise begins or ends. 

AmaWaterways is also offering travel advisors the ability to extend this offer as an exclusive incentive for group bookings of five or more staterooms for select 2024 Europe, Egypt and Mekong River cruises.

"This new Free Land Package offer was designed to further enhance our guests’ vacation experience with an extra few days to recover from jetlag before their river cruise or explore a new city before returning home," said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-founder of AmaWaterways. "Drawing on our European heritage, our river cruise itineraries and excursions have been created to offer our guests unparalleled experiences and the same is true for our land packages that have just the right balance of immersive included tours and free time.”  

Each land package includes daily breakfast, convenient transfers and portage services between the hotel and ship plus enriching city tours and experiences, such as the opportunity to visit the world-famous Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, or taste Czech Pilsners in Prague.
