River cruise company AmaWaterways just announced that reservations are now open for its 2024 cruises, including its longest journey aboard one ship yet: a 49-night sailing on the AmaMora that will cruise the complete length of the Rhine and Danube rivers.  

“Since the debut of our Seven River Journeys in 2021, we have received tremendous demand from travelers who are looking to spend extra time immersing themselves in beautiful destinations throughout Europe,” Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-founder of AmaWaterways, said in a statement sent to Travel + Leisure. “We are thrilled to announce that the 2024 Spring and Summer Editions showcase enriching itineraries on board a single, award-winning ship."

The cruise visits 15 countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, France, Luxembourg, Moldova, the Netherlands, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Switzerland. Guests can take the 49-night journey in one of two directions. The first sailing is the spring 2024 trip, which departs from Amsterdam on April 22, 2024 and ends on June 10, 2024, in Giurgiu, Romania. Throughout the trip, guests will explore each country in late spring or early summer, seeing Europe in full bloom. 

Want to travel in reverse? Take the summer 2024 Seven River Journey, which begins on June 10, 2024, in Giurgiu and ends on July 29, 2024, in Amsterdam. This trip will also sail the impressive Main-Danube Canal and pass through the Danube Delta (a first for AmaWaterways' sailings) en route to the Black Sea.

The 2024 Seven River Journey itineraries include all dining, gratuities on board and ashore, laundry service, bicycles that guests can use to export the ports of call, and group excursions, including active hiking and walking trips and culinary explorations. Guest rooms onboard the ship all come with AmaWaterways’ signature twin balconies, but guests can also head to common areas for a bit of sun on the deck or in the pool, which comes with a swim-up bar.
