It just might be the most amazing vacation offer you’ll see all year.
River cruise line AmaWaterways is offering multiday land packages worth thousands of dollars to guests who reserve a river cruise by the end of March.
That’s right, complimentary land packages.
Under the terms of the offer, AmaWaterways is offering a complimentary pre- or post-cruise land package lasting two, three or even four nights as an add-on when travelers reserve select Europe river cruises scheduled to take place in 2024 and 2025.
The deadline to take advantage of the offer is March 31.
Like the cruises, the land packages will all take place in Europe and are designed to complement the sailings to which they are tied.
For would-be Europe cruisers, it’s an appealing offer. With AmaWaterways’ compliments, the land packages will take you to some of the most iconic places in Europe — places you wouldn’t otherwise be able to visit on a river cruise alone.
We’re talking such destinations as:
Lake Como in Italy
Some places simply have to be seen to be believed, and lovely Lake Como, with its azure waters and impressive lakeside villas, is one of them. During a three-night add-on land package to this celebrated destination, you’ll experience the wind tousling your hair as you board a boat for a scenic ride along the shores of Lake Como before exploring its stunning pearl, Bellagio, home to postcard-perfect views and cobbled streets.
