We've loved sailing with AmaWaterways for many years, and the line and crew have always delivered exceptional travel experiences.

With this new ambitious itinerary, which is on sale now for the 2023 trip that will take up to 144 passengers on a memorable journey, AmaWaterways again is raising the bar for the river cruise industry. This itinerary has been specially curated by the line's co-founder and president, Rudi Schreiner, who is known as the "Godfather of River Cruising."
The voyage sets sail on June 1, 2023, beginning on the Seine River in France. And the journey through Europe will carry you along Europe's most legendary rivers, capturing the essence of each region.
