AmaWaterways has announced its 2023 Europe river cruise itineraries are now open for individual and group bookings, a full seven months in advance of previous years.
The line said it had seen a record level of bookings in March, confirming “the extremely strong pent-up demand for intimate river cruise holidays”.
Guests who reserve their 2023 Europe cruise by 30 June 2021 will receive five per cent savings on balcony staterooms and suites.
AmaWaterways has also announced two Seven River Journeys through 14 countries for spring and summer 2023.
The summer edition has limited availability, the line said, although the spring edition, sailing from 20 April to 4 June 2023, is now open for bookings.
AmaWaterways executive vice-president and co-founder Kristin Karst said: “Reservations for our 2022 season are the strongest we have ever seen. We have already received such incredible group and charter interest for our 2023 itineraries that we decided to move ahead quickly and open up these cruises for individual bookings.
“I am excited about our new classical music cruises, five-night Danube itineraries and Seven River Journeys that have just been announced. Each offers an innovative twist on traditional river cruising with unique and inspiring experiences sure to please new and returning guests.”
President and co-founder Rudi Schreiner added: “I am very optimistic on the future of river cruising and as a pioneer in this sector, we are always looking for new ways to surprise and delight our guests while working closely with the local communities to offer unique experiences that AmaWaterways is known for.
“Whether looking for a traditional seven-night sailing, a shorter five-night itinerary or an immersive journey spanning multiple rivers and discovering lesser-known destinations, our 2023 offerings meet the needs of every type of traveller.”
Last year, the line’s UK managing director Jamie Loizou told Cruise Trade News that the “future is bright for selling on service, not on price”.
