To celebrate National Nurses Week, river cruise line AmaWaterways has opened a selection of Europe sailings from October to December 2021 for eligible frontline medical heroes to receive a free river cruise with one paying guest in the same cabin.
Medical professionals enrolled in the program can now redeem their complimentary cruise certificate on a choice of 30 sailing dates in 2021. In addition, the free river cruise offer is re-opened for a limited time to active medical professionals and active first responders who may not have had the opportunity to enroll last year.
“Our frontline medical heroes have worked tirelessly over the past year to keep our communities safe, and they deserve so much recognition for their unwavering dedication,” said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-founder of AmaWaterways. “It is our honor to provide these selfless individuals with a much-needed break on a memorable river cruise vacation, where they can rest easy and enjoy leisurely days full of discovery in magnificent European destinations!”
