Make the most of a AmaWaterways river cruise vacation by adding optional land packages before or after your sailing for an all-encompassing river cruise and land journey.
Stay awhile and explore an incredible city where your river cruise begins or ends – or venture into a fascinating new city or country more easily accessible by land. Take on specially curated guided tours with just the right amount of leisure time to explore the art, history or culinary delights in sought-after cities around the world.
With an AmaWaterways pre-cruise land package, you can rest and recover from your flights, easing into your journey in a new time zone. Or pamper yourself post-cruise with a few extra days of relaxed exploration before returning home. Either way, you can add a bonus city or country to your experience!
