CALABASAS, CA – (May 8, 2020) – Award-winning luxury river cruise company AmaWaterways today announced a special offer inviting frontline heroes from around the world to enjoy a complimentary river cruise.

The certificate may be redeemed for any AmaWaterways Europe or Asia sailing through December 31, 2021 for reservations made within 90 days of the sailing date.
“There are none more deserving of a river cruise vacation than today’s frontline heroes — the doctors, nurses, paramedics and other frontline medical professionals who are diligently helping others and inspiring hope during these challenging times,” said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-founder of AmaWaterways. “To express our deepest gratitude, we hope to welcome these very special individuals and their loved ones on an unforgettable river cruise as soon as we resume sailing.”
In tandem with the complimentary cruise-only offer, AmaWaterways is also extending a book now option to those eager to reconnect with family and friends and reserve their 2021 journey, with savings of up to $2,000* per stateroom, plus complimentary pre-paid gratuities. This offer can be applied to any destination for travel in 2021, including Egypt’s legendary Nile River, where the luxurious new AmaDahlia (pictured right), is scheduled to set sail beginning September 2021.
The foundation of AmaWaterways is its valued travel advisor partners who play such an important role in their communities, and this offer allows them to connect with and honor their local frontline heroes.
