Explore the magnificence of Europe along its majestic river network historically used for commerce and trade. Delve into centuries of history along the mighty Rhine as we cruise by fabled castles, Gothic cathedrals, centuries old marketplaces and explore quaint medieval towns. Embarking our luxurious floating home in Amsterdam, Netherlands, we discover historic towns and landmarks in Germany, France and Switzerland. Disembarking in Basel, we continue our European exploration in the Medieval town of Konstanz, nestled on the banks of beautiful Lake Constance. Next we cross the Alps to Innsbruck and finally enter the small Bavarian town of Oberammergau. For almost 400 years, the people of the alpine town of Oberammergau have fulfilled a vow to honour God through the Passion Play, a larger than life portrayal of the life and passion of Jesus. Every ten years the village devotes itself to this wonderful event, involving a cast of thousands, entirely made up of local residents. For over two years, characters take on their roles, reliving the important tales of the Bible. The Passion Play in Oberammergau only comes around every 10 years. With an event this special most groups will sell out fast. Call today to reserve your places.

AmaLucia

Amawaterways

For our cruise on the beautiful Rhine we will have the pleasure of sailing on the ms AmaLucia, which will make its debut in 2021. This deluxe 156 passenger vessel features modern design elements along with all the fine amenities that we have come to expect from AmaWaterways. We will be travelling in spacious comfort in beautifully-decorated cabins that include private bathrooms, a small sitting area, a writing desk, a flat-screen television with complimentary Internet and first-run Hollywood movies, ample wardrobes, individual temperature controls, a safe, and a telephone. All cabins come with twin beds that can convert to one large bed. Do step out of the luxurious comfort and beautiful views offered in your cabins occasionally, however, as the rest of the ship is equally inviting! Enjoy fine culinary creations in five separate dining venues, watch the scenery go by as you unwind in the entertainment lounge or wine bar, take advantage of the fitness facilities that include a heated swimming pool, a walking track and a fleet of bicycles, or simply indulge in the spa with a massage, hair or beauty treatment. There is a small elevator with access to the Violin, Cello, and Piano decks. Smoking is allowed only in the designated area on the Sun Deck. The ship operates exclusively in English.
