Luxury River Cruise Company Encourages Remote Workers to Make the World Their Office

AmaWaterways AmaMagnaCALABASAS, Calif. – (August 4, 2023) – Embracing the rising trend of digital nomadism, AmaWaterways, renowned luxury river cruise line, celebrates Digital Nomad Day on August 8 with a special focus on its 2024 early season cruises, starting in February on the Rhine and Danube rivers. These special cruises provide remote workers and travel enthusiasts with the unique opportunity to experience the beauty of Europe during a less crowded time, all while staying connected and productive aboard the AmaWaterways fleet of floating boutique hotels. 

“Remote work has fundamentally changed the way many people are able to travel by opening up more time to experience the world without having to rely on set vacation time,” said Kristin Karst, co-founder and executive vice president of AmaWaterways. “Remote workers have the flexibility to travel at a different pace to take advantage of lower airfares and avoid crowds.


“Our early season European river cruises provide the perfect setting for them to stay connected, inspired and motivated while immersing themselves in the culture and beauty of various destinations along the European waterways. We hope to inspire adventurous professionals to embrace the world as their office and embark on transformative journeys that not only facilitate remote work opportunities but create lasting memories.” 

Boasting comfortable staterooms with built-in workspaces and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout, as well as thoughtfully designed spaces, such as large Main Lounges and plenty of comfortable outdoor seating on the Sun Deck, AmaWaterways river cruises present exceptional opportunities for digital nomads to embrace new horizons while remaining connected to their professional pursuits. With included excursions offered most mornings and afternoons, there is plenty of flexibility to work and still enjoy the local sites.
