Sailing between Paris and Le Havre, the seven-night “Onboard Impressions of the Seine & Paris” itinerary will spend two days in Paris and two in Le Havre, visiting Mantes-la-Jolie, La Roche-Guyon, Vernon, Rouen and Caudebec-en-Caux.
The seven-night “Rhine Castles & Swiss Alps” will operate from Amsterdam to Basel, exploring destinations in France, Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland.
Pre- and post-land programs are available for all itineraries.
“When we launched our first hosted wine cruises in 2010, we simply wanted to share our appreciation of wine and showcase the enjoyment of both New World and Old World varietals through interesting excursions and fun wine tastings,” said AmaWaterways Executive Vice President and Co-Founder Kristin Karst.
She added, “The response we have received has been remarkable, and each year we have added more departures with interesting wine experts representing vineyards from across the country. Whether you are a wine lover, a knowledgeable connoisseur or simply enjoy a sip here and there, our intimate ‘Celebration of Wine River Cruises’ provides an added dimension to the river cruise experience. “
