Recently, AmaWaterways announced that it would be operating two 46-night cruises on an itinerary called ‘Seven River Journey Through Europe.’
Today, the river line has announced that it has launched a third Seven River Journey for fall 2023, based on the overwhelming popularity for the spring and summer dates.
Taking guests through 14 countries over 47 days, the fall sailing will take place during many regions’ wine harvests and colorful fall foliage. The cruise will commence on August 24, 2023 from Paris, France and conclude on October 9 in Giurgiu, Romania.
“Our Seven River Journeys have generated such an amazing response from our guests, and we are delighted to offer yet another opportunity for travelers to immerse themselves in the beautiful regions of Europe during one of my favorite times of year, the delightful autumn season,” said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-founder of AmaWaterways.
“From exploring fairytale castles and storybook villages enveloped in brilliant fall colors to enjoying seasonal wines and the autumn apple harvest, Seven River Journey – Autumn Edition takes place during the perfect time of year for guests to spend extended time in some of Europe’s most-sought after destinations.”
Sailing aboard three ships, guests who book on the itinerary’s autumn edition will be able to enjoy the amenities, cuisine, and service that AmaWaterways is known for.
Guests will sail from Paris on AmaLyra to sail along the Seine River, before transferring to AmaCerto in Amsterdam to experience the sites along the Scheldt, Maas, Rhine, Main, and Moselle rivers. The journey will conclude with two weeks aboard AmaVerde sailing the full length of the Danube River.
Here’s an overview of the itinerary:
