Join TV Host Samantha Brown Onboard The AmaDolce

AmaWaterways invites you to join tv host Samantha Brown, Godmother of the AmaMagna, as she discovers the Taste of Bordeaux, July 29, 2021

What Samantha Brown, Emmy® Award winning tv host, celebrated travel expert and AmaMagna Godmother, enjoys most about travel is not necessarily the “must do’s” of a destination—visiting the iconic museums, majestic castles and celebratory monuments. What she loves the most is meeting people, getting to know them and spending time with them as they go about their everyday lives.

Samantha’s PBS show, ‘Places to Love,' encourages viewers to experience the local, authentic side of travel that brings the passion of the people and the soul of a place to life in a way that only traveling can do. Whether it’s through food and drink, art and design, culture or adventure, at the end of each episode, viewers have a well-curated list of new enriching experiences that focus on not just how to visit a destination, but how to fully immerse in it.

“My series, ‘Places to Love,’ is about exploring the more personal side of travel by finding the destinations, experiences and, most importantly, the people who make us feel like we are really a part of a place; where we’re not just treated like a consumer but a part of the community,” said Samantha Brown. “From famous cities to under-the-radar gems, “Places to Love” is ultimately about approaching travel in bold and refreshing ways.”

During the July 29th cruise, Samantha will be hosting dinners in The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant – included in your cruise fare, wine tasting during the many included excursions and sharing her insider tips and stories with you during two engaging presentations on how you can really appreciate the essence of travel.

You can join her for a special 7-night hosted river journey sailing the Taste of Bordeaux on board AmaDolce departing July 29, 2021.

“People are traveling today in order to connect with people and places in a way that our own daily lives may not allow. Being on a river, you are physically connected to the natural beauty of a region, and you are sharing this experience with a small group of people that you get to know. "
