AmaWaterways has opened bookings for its 2022 voyages six months ahead of previous season openings.
All itineraries in France, Portugal, Holland and those travelling the Rhine and Moselle rivers are open for reservations, with added rewards for guests who book early.
The remaining 2022 river cruise voyages with pre- and post-cruise land extensions will be available from 20 May.
AmaWaterways has said that increased demand for 2022 sailings led to the early release of the deployment.
AmaWaterways president and co-founder, Rudi Schreiner, said: “We are excited to open our 2022 bookings six months earlier than originally anticipated, given the heightened demand from individuals and special interest groups for sailings in 2021 and beyond.
“We’ve seen a strong showing for our new offerings, especially with new ships AmaSiena and AmaLucia joining the fleet, and AmaDahlia launching on the Nile in Egypt in September 2021.
“As pent up demand has already started to surface, I anticipate 2022 will emerge as a very strong travel season and look forward to welcoming our guests onboard.”
For all 2021 Europe, Asia and Egypt cruises, guests booking by 30 June 2020 will receive five per cent cruise savings on balcony staterooms and suites plus up to £1,150 savings per stateroom on select departures.
Guests will have until 30 September 2020 to receive a five per cent early booking reward for all 2022 departures.
In addition to the early opening of 2022 bookings, AmaWaterways has also cited increased interest around its new offerings for 2021.
The line’s 2021/2022 seasons will feature five new itineraries and new pre- and post-cruise land programmes in some of Europe’s most sought-after destinations, including Lake Como, Italy and the French islet of St. Malo.
AmaWaterways executive vice president and co-founder, Kristin Karst, said: “Our intimate river cruise ships and wonderful crew will be waiting to share these beautiful new experiences with our guests.
“As Godmother of AmaKristina, I am personally thrilled to see her moving over to the Rhône in 2021 on a wonderful cruise between Lyon and Avignon. She will be joining AmaCello, who will take on a new itinerary exploring Burgundy and Provence.
“There is so much to look forward to, and I’m eager to welcome new and returning guests onboard to create special memories with AmaWaterways!”
AmaWaterways announced this week that it would be offering free cruises to medical professionals, key workers and employees of essential services.
