During your next river cruise, you have the chance to explore more. For a limited time, AmaWaterways is offering a complimentary land package. When you reserve select Europe, Egypt, and Mekong River cruises by December 31, 2022, you’ll receive a two, three, or four-night pre- or post-cruise land package, for free.
“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.”
Free Land Packages
Whether you want to rest and recover after your long flight into a new time zone, or give yourself a few more days of exploration before you head home, the Free Land Packages allow you to add a bonus city or country to your experience.
The experiences include stays at world-class, four- and five-star hotels located near major sites; daily breakfast at the hotel; city tours and excursions led by local guides; convenient traders and portage service between your hotel and river cruise ship; and the service of the extraordinary cruise managers throughout your journey.
