AmaWaterways Egypt river cruise and land programs are currently operating. Our 2022 European and African Wildlife & Safari river cruises commence in March and our Mekong sailings will commence in October 2022.
The safety and wellbeing of our guests and crew are at the center of all our decisions and AmaWaterways will only sail if we can deliver a safe experience for our guests. Our experienced operations team is closely following the situation in Ukraine, and if necessary, we will make adjustments to our Eastern European itinerary and advise our travel partners and guests. We have a 20-year proven track record of safely adapting our cruises to ensure that unexpected events have a minimal impact on the guest experience so that those wishing to still cruise can do so, safely. Travel during these times remains a personal choice, and we have kept our flexible policies in place to best accommodate the evolving conditions.
AmaWaterways Vaccination & Testing Requirements
Until further notice, AmaWaterways will welcome guests fully vaccinated against Covid-19 on board our ships. This also applies to accompanied minors.
