Calabasas, CA - (Oct. 5, 2017) - Each year, the cruise industry – led by the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) – comes together for one month to support a worldwide movement to learn, plan and book a cruise vacation. The campaign offers advice to cruise veterans and rookies, cruise line deals, promotions and expert opinions to help maritime enthusiasts navigate an array of cruising options available for every travel style and budget. In celebration of Plan a Cruise Month, AmaWaterways today announced it will offer savings of up to $1,500 per stateroom plus free pre-paid gratuities* to guests booking select Europe and Asia cruises throughout October.

“Spending quality time with family and friends is so important and CLIA’s Plan a Cruise Month encourages everyone to take a moment out of their busy schedules to plan a wonderful, much-needed cruise vacation,” said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-owner of AmaWaterways. “Plan a Cruise Month allows our industry to take center stage with so many vacation options on the market, and this is the perfect time for those interested in exploring a river cruise to connect with their travel agent, so that they can learn more about our offerings and begin looking forward to their dream vacation.”
