AmaWaterways rolls out rewards for travel advisors to celebrate 20th anniversary

CALABASAS — AmaWaterways has announced “unprecedented” promotions that reward travel advisors in celebration of its 20th anniversary.

In recognition of the unwavering loyalty and support shown by its valued travel advisor partners over the past two decades, the cruise line is offering the following:

  • Gift Cards: Travel advisors who reserve sailings for their clients on any 2022 Europe, Mekong, Africa or Egypt river cruise between July 1 and Sept. 30, 2022 will receive a $200 gift card once the final payment has been made. For solo travellers, advisors can earn $100 for reserving a single occupancy stateroom.
  • River Cruise Giveaways: During each ‘Webinar Wednesday’ in July, AmaWaterways is giving away a free seven-night European river cruise to one lucky travel advisor in attendance. All attendees will be eligible to win and the winner will be chosen at random.

On the company’s 20th anniversary, Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-founder of AmaWaterways, says: “As we proudly celebrate the past 20 years, our hearts are filled with immense joy and appreciation for our travel partners and loyal guests who have made our remarkable journey even more rewarding than we could have ever imagined.

“When Rudi Schreiner, Jimmy Murphy and I founded AmaWaterways in 2002, we committed to putting love at the heart of everything we do, and that means honouring our relationships with valued travel partners and treating every guest like they are part of our family. Through the introduction of these special 20th anniversary offers, we hope to warmly welcome new and familiar faces aboard as we commemorate this incredible milestone.”

In addition to travel advisor promotions, AmaWaterways has also rolled out special promotions for their clients, available now on new FIT reservations made between July 1 and Sept. 30, for travel during 2022. They are as follows:

  • Free Roundtrip Airfare: Guests who reserve any 2022 Europe or Mekong cruise by Sept. 30, 2022 will receive free roundtrip, economy airfare from all gateways in the U.S. and Canada. Plus, travellers can secure their booking with a reduced deposit of just $20 per person.
  • 20% Savings: For guests who have already reserved their airfare or have air credits to use, AmaWaterways is offering 20% savings on the total cruise fare for all new 2022 Europe and Mekong sailings.
  • Double Loyalty Savings: AmaWaterways is offering Double Loyalty Savings exclusive to past guests. Past guests can enjoy a $240 per person discount on all new reservations for 2022 Europe and Mekong sailings. This offer can be combined with the free roundtrip, economy airfare and $20 per person reduced deposit promotions.
  • Solo Traveller Single Supplement: Travellers seeking a solo journey can enjoy a reduced 20% single supplement on new reservations for 2022 Europe and Mekong sailings in select stateroom categories.

Since its inception in 2002, AmaWaterways has expanded to rivers in a multitude of destinations in Europe, Asia, Africa, Egypt and, coming in 2024, Colombia aboard a growing fleet of more than 25 custom-designed ships. Next year, in 2023, the river cruise line will launch its longest-river cruise itinerary, the 36-night ‘Seven River Journey’ through seven European countries.
