AmaWaterways announces new ships, new cruises, new onboard facilities and new Burma cruises for 2014
2014 promises to be a bumper year for the award-winning cruise line, with exciting new ships, new, creative themed cruises and a move into Burma, with cruises on the Ayerawady starting late in 2014 on a brand new vessel, AmaPura.
This new cruising area and the investment in three new ships means that AmaWaterways will by the end of 2014 have 18 ships sailing in more than 20 countries on waterways including the Rhine, Seine, Danube, Main, Rhone, Douro and Moselle in Europe, as well as the waterways of Russia, the Mekong in Indochina, cruise-and-touring holidays in Africa and the Ayerawady.
NEW AmaWaterways’ debut on the Ayeyarwady in Burma
In the autumn of 2014, AmaWaterways will launch AmaPura, a 76-passenger river cruiser to sail the beautiful Ayeyarwady river, exploring the temples and riverside towns of mysterious Burma. The cruise line has always led the way in introducing new destinations; AmaWaterways was one of the first to explore the Mekong and is still the only river cruise operator to feature the Chobe River in Botswana. Prices and itineraries for Burma will be announced soon.
NEW Additional African adventures
New enhancements to AmaWaterways’ 2014 cruise-and-land safari programmes on the luxurious, 28-passenger Zambezi Queen include a 12-night Rivers & Rails of Africa itinerary, which features two nights aboard the Rovos Rail luxury train. The 14-night Stars of South Africa and 15-night Golden Trails of East Africa itineraries feature exclusive access to some of the most incredible accommodation in Africa, such as Singita Sweni Lodge and Singita Sabora Tented Camp, taking in Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro and the Serengeti. For guests looking for a shorter adventure, there is also a nine-night Discover Africa itinerary taking in Cape Town, the Zambezi Queen and Victoria Falls.
From £4,687, for the Discover Africa itinerary, departing March 14 (cruise and land only).
All cruises include all meals, free-flowing wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner, daily tours and excursions, free wi-fi, free use of on board bicycles and port charges.
