Between our luxurious onboard gala and local celebrations, there’s nothing quite like a New Year’s cruise with AmaWaterways.

When you join AmaWaterways for a New Year’s cruise, there are so many wonderful ways to celebrate as you count down to midnight. Whether you wish to go into town to see how the locals watch the ball drop or you prefer dressing up and attending our exclusive, complimentary New Year’s Eve gala, the choice is yours. Plus, if your ship docks in a vibrant city like Vienna or Linz, grab a glass of champagne and head up to the Sun Deck where we’ll be ready and waiting with blankets to keep you warm as you’re treated to front-row views of awe-inspiring fireworks. 

Where will you spend New Year's with AmaWaterways as we look forward to 2024?
