Project Description


Christmas & New Year’s  Cruises | Amawaterways™

For a magical holiday season, the Christmas markets in Europe should be high on your list. Besides the attractions of the brightly-lit markets and streets, the tempting shops and stall displays, and the comfort of delicious mugs of glühwein as you brave the frosty air, there are treats on board your Amawaterways’ river cruise ship to round out the festivities. There’s tree-trimming parties, savory Christmas treats, and even a visit from St. Nick’s elves to fill your slippers with tiny gifts in the European tradition. If you are on a New Year’s cruise, party on board with a gala dinner and champagne and ring in the New Year “early”.

There’s no better way to see and experience the holiday season on your vacation.
