AmaWaterways Free Cruises for Key Workers

AmaWaterways is offering free cruises to key workers to show their support in the COVID-19 pandemic. The award-winning luxury river cruise company has announced a special offer inviting front line heroes from around the world to enjoy a complimentary river cruise. As a gesture of the company’s heartfelt appreciation for the selfless sacrifices made by so many amidst these unprecedented times.

Who is eligible for the AmaWaterways Free Cruises for Key Workers?

All medical professionals, key workers and employees of essential services are eligible to receive a complimentary Future Cruise Certificate. Offers are only applicable to medical professionals, key workers, and employees of essential services with valid ID.

These limited time offers cannot be combined with any other promotions. The Future Cruise Certificate must be used with one paying guest in the same stateroom. The certificate may be redeemed for any AmaWaterways Europe or Asia sailing through 31 December 2021 for reservations made within 90 days of the sailing date.  

“There are none more deserving of a river cruise holiday than today’s frontline heroes — the doctors, nurses, paramedics, police officers, firefighters and many other frontline professionals who are diligently helping others and inspiring hope during these challenging times.”

This offer can be applied to any destination for travel in 2021, including Egypt’s legendary Nile River, where the luxurious new AmaDahlia is scheduled to set sail beginning September 2021.

I was fortunate to experience my first river cruise with AmaWaterways on AmaMagna as part of a press trip in 2019. AmaWaterways is well known for offering active river cruises and exceptional dining experiences. For more details you can read my ultimate guide to dining on AmaMagna.

Amawaterways offers guests an inclusive river cruise experience with complimentary excursions in every destination as well as alcoholic drinks with meals.

AmaMagna is a double-width river ship, which makes it ideally suited to people who are more accustomed to ocean cruising and looking to try river cruising for the first time. With Amawaterways offering free cruises to key workers, this is a perfect time to try river cruising.
