AmaWaterways released its 128-page 2012 Brochure detailing the line’s river cruise vacation itineraries, new programs, specialty cruises and new vessels.
The 2012 Brochure contains details about the AmaWaterways river cruise vacations on the Danube, Rhine, Main, Mosel and Rhone rivers in Europe. In 2012, the line will feature a total of nine custom-built vessels in Europe, all featuring French balconies or twin balconies, and amenities such as complimentary in-room Internet, ship-wide Wi-Fi and guided bicycle tours.
Popular European itineraries commence in the spring with Tulip Time cruises on the waterways of the Netherlands and Belgium. The new 164-passenger twin balcony MS AmaCerto will make its debut with a Tulip Time departure in April. The MS AmaDagio will be making its debut in France in the spring, marking the first time a AmaWaterways vessel will operate on the Rhone River.
The 2012 Brochure also details a number of new AmaWaterways programs and distinctions. Among them is the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, the gastronomic society with origins dating back to the Middle Ages. All AmaWaterways vessels in Europe are members of Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, the only river cruise line to hold that honor.
The brochure also sets forth cruise departures that include a visit to the Floriade World Horticultural Expo, an event that takes place every 10 years in the Netherlands. Also new for 2012 are “Culinary Delights — Bites and Sights” shore excursions, which are guided walking tours that explore the culinary heritage of Europe.
Additionally, the brochure includes an overview of the AmaWaterways 2012 specialty cruises, including “In Celebration of Wine” cruises on the Danube, Rhine — and for the first time — the Rhone River in France. Details about the 2012 “Jewish Heritage” cruises are set forth as well, including itineraries, dates and prices.
Beginning in 2012, the line will offer its popular Russia, Vietnam and Cambodia itineraries under the new “AmaVoyages” product line. AmaVoyages consist of river cruises and land programs that are separate from the AmaWaterways experience in Europe. The brochure sets forth descriptions, dates and prices for the “Russian Waterways” program on the newly-redesigned MS AmaKatrina, and the “Vietnam, Cambodia and the Riches of the Mekong” program featuring Mekong River cruises on the MS La Marguerite and the brand-new MS AmaLotus.
