Experience the Wonders of a European Wine River Cruise

Be treated to enriching wine tastings, visit historic vineyards and more on these specially curated AmaWaterways river cruises.

AmaWaterways’ more than 70 annual Celebration of Wine River Cruises invite you to immerse yourself in a world where rich flavors flow freely across Europe, allowing you to savor these storied libations on a deeper, more intimate level. Each Celebration of Wine River Cruise is hosted by an enthusiastic wine professional who leads you through tastings and interactive discussions, accompanies you on select shore excursions to vineyards and cellars, and helps curate a special food and wine pairing dinner on board. Guided by their passion and expertise, you’ll delight in discovering one of the world’s most perfect blends: travel, wine and elegant cuisine.

Along your river cruise, you will be doing more than savoring the taste of these impressive wines – you can also enjoy excursions during which you hike through vineyards or delve into their fascinating history that has been interwoven with the regions you are exploring.

If your travel partner is not interested in wine, they can still join you on board these specialty journeys! With itineraries offering up to eight included excursions per day to choose from, there are plenty of alternative excursions and activities you and your companions can experience. For example, on AmaWaterways’ Gems of Southeast Europe Wine Cruise, you can enjoy a tasting with your experienced Wine Host in the heart of Belgrade while your partner explores Serbia’s capital city on a guided walking tour or hikes to the majestic Belgrade Fortress.

Find Your Favorite Flavor in France

When many imagine the perfect destination to explore wine, France is the first that comes to mind. AmaWaterways’ French river cruises can take you to any of the six world-famous wine regions that the country has to offer. Visit iconic vineyards and historic châteaux as you sail aboard your own personal floating château featuring beautiful French balconies.

One such journey with immersive experiences and exquisite wine is AmaWaterways’ 7-night Flavors of Burgundy Wine Cruise itinerary! With four wine tastings in beautiful destinations such as Seurre, Tournus, Mâcon and Lyon, you will enjoy a diverse array of the region’s crisp flavors included in your Saône River cruise.

Discover the Danube River’s Wines 

The legendary Danube River is also home to a variety of rich wines, from Austrian Grüner Veltliner in the UNESCO-designated Wachau Valley to sweet Rieslings. Savor the unique tastes fostered along these riverbanks on itineraries such as AmaWaterways’ Melodies of the Danube Wine Cruise. With journeys specially curated by AmaWaterways Co-Founder and President Rudi Schreiner, who grew up in Vienna, you are sure to experience the best of the hidden gems along the Danube River. For example, attend an exclusive wine festival in Spitz, Austria on a Magna on the Danube river cruise aboard the flagship of AmaWaterways’ award-winning fleet, the innovative AmaMagna.
