Impressions of the Seine & Paris

New in 2022

Impressions of the Seine & Paris

AmaWaterways proudly presents the Impressions of the Seine & Paris river cruise, launching in 2022. Featuring seven nights from Paris to LeHavre, France, this extraordinary cruise invites you to discover both popular sites and hidden gems in one of the most renowned world capitals, while also being introduced to sites memorialized by famous Impressionist painters along the Seine River.

Enjoy a leisurely stroll through Claude Monet’s spectacular home and gardens in Giverny. Taste one-of-a-kind Norman chocolate, cheese and cider, and go on guided bike tours through the picturesque city of Vernon and its fairytale timber-framed houses. The optional pre- or post-cruise land package to Saint-Malo in Brittany offers a glimpse into the region’s seafaring history, and you’ll truly feel like you’ve stepped into the past as you explore this magnificent walled city.

Want more magic? The tidal island and commune of Mont Saint-Michel will transport you into a genuinely unique land of splendor. Consider reserving this cruise with our optional land packages: 2 nights pre-cruise Paris and 3 nights post-cruise St. Malo plus 1-night Paris.

Captivating Rhine

Captivating Rhine

Beginning in Amsterdam, Netherlands and ending in Basel, Switzerland, AmaWaterways’ Captivating Rhine river cruise gives you an all-access pass to fabled, picturesque towns and the most legendary landscapes of Europe. Enveloped by vineyard-clad hills, the Rhine meanders through France’s alluring Alsace region, its capital of Strasbourg, and its sparkling jewel, Riquewihr.

Discover and revel in the German cities of Breisach and Freiburg, the latter of which is the gateway to the renowned Black Forest. You’ll be delighted to try Rüdesheimer coffee and Kölsch beer, local flavors of considerable acclaim. Guided hikes and bike tours take you directly into the heart of these cities where you can explore the cobblestone streets and narrow alleys with abandon.

The Luxury of Space

AmaWaterways’ award-winning ships offer the luxury of space while accommodating an average of just 150 guests. This allows for freedom of movement on the vessel, the security of knowing that safety is paramount, and no possibility of overcrowding. You’ll be surprised how refreshing it is to move through the landings and rooms freely.

Ships of Prestige

AmaWaterways proudly debuted two beautiful new ships in Europe this year, AmaSiena and AmaLucia. Both of these are twin-balcony ships and have already been awarded prestigious Green Award certification for industry-leading safety, quality, and environmental performance. Enjoy peace of mind knowing you are on a high-quality vessel that will safely carry you through days of fun, rest and relaxation in luxury.

Build Your Own Itinerary

There’s something for every type of traveler on the cruise. Whether you want to explore fairy-tale hamlets or capital cities of grandeur, go on active hikes or bike rides, enjoy gentle walks during city tours, or delight your taste buds with culinary-themed Special Interest Tours, you have the freedom of choice. Choose between a jam-packed schedule, a more relaxing, slow-paced experience or something in between – it’s all entirely up to you.

Let’s Talk Cuisine

There’s no use in talking about the AmaWaterways experience without mentioning the exquisite food you’ll dine on every day. Using only the freshest, locally-sourced ingredients, top chefs aboard the ship expertly prepare dishes that will leave you satisfied and yet craving more. Dine in the Main Restaurant or on the multi-course tasting menu offered at The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant and give your palate a culinary adventure to remember (all included in the price of your river cruise). Complimentary fine wines, beer and soft drinks are offered during lunch and dinner.

Fun With Fitness

Want to get moving? Choose from a variety of complimentary small-group fitness classes, including morning stretching, core strengthening and dance.
