CALABASAS, CA – (February 12, 2019) – Ama (or “Amor”) means love, and AmaWaterways is celebrating its favorite holiday, Valentine’s Day, with three special offers on the luxury river cruise line’s broad range of sailings.  The specials include sailings on the highly anticipated, luxurious AmaMagna (pictured right), debuting this May with seven-night cruises on the Danube.

Announced today,  couples who book July 21 or July 28, 2019 departures on board AmaMagna can save up to

$1,200 per stateroom, or book one of the ship’s oceanstyle, triple occupancy suites and the third guest sharing the suite sails for free*. Ideal for multigenerational families or a group of friends who are looking for an unforgettable vacation, the much-anticipated AmaMagna features a total of 98 staterooms, most which are spacious suites measuring between 355 and 710 sq. ft., which can be comfortably shared with that special someone.

“There’s more to love on board AmaWaterways this year, and we’re excited to extend these special offers to encourage families and guests to experience the magic of river cruising,” said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-owner of AmaWaterways. “We include a wide range of active tours and wellness activities which ensures there is truly something for everyone on our ships!”
