AmaWaterways: complimentary sailing on select itineraries and dates for frontline medical heroes

AmaWaterways have devised a way of showing their appreciation for the work, sacrifices and dedication of frontliners during the COVID pandemic.

Frontliners are eligible to receive a complimentary cruise with one paying guest in the same stateroom in specified room categories on select sailings in Europe embarking up to December 2021. This offer is only applicable to active medical professionals (doctors, nurses, pharmacists, hospital staff, lab technicians) and active first responders (Emergency Medical services/paramedics) with a valid identification.

You can view the list of selected sailings here:

Distant Horizons is a preferred partner of AmaWaterways, the highest-rated ships in Europe according to the third edition of “Berlitz: River Cruising in Europe and the USA”. River cruising through Europe with AmaWaterways is an excellent way to discover local culture and sights. Step aboard and unpack once, travelling between grand capitals and charming villages alike, without the need for multiple hotels or forms of transportation.

Your ship is a means of luxury transportation from destination to destination. The slower pace of river cruising means you have more free time in port. Every day is a "see" day rather than a "sea" day because AmaWaterways sail through the very heart of each destination. Your ship docks in close proximity to city centres and with quick and easy embarkation and disembarkation you can step right off the ship and explore.

After taking one of the daily shore excursions (included in the fare), whether this is a trip to a nearby town, an organised walk in the area where the boat is docked, or even a cycling tour, you just hop back on your river cruise ship and sail to the next stunning city or charming town! Also included in the fare is all dining on board (including The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant), fine wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner, internet access and Wi-Fi and bicycles that you can use to explore on your own or join our guided bike tours.

Experience the “Luxury of More” and see all inclusions on the following link:

“Ama” means love – and love is at the heart of everything AmaWaterways do!

Mark and Louise sailed with AmaWaterways on the AmaKristina in November 2017. They sailed on the “Captivating Rhine”, a 7-night wine-themed cruise from Amsterdam to Basel and would be happy to share their first-hand experience.
