The longest-ever river cruise will whisk travellers away on a 46-night getaway from France to Romania

Luxury cruise company AmaWaterways has today announced it will be offering the longest-ever river cruise itinerary in the world. The new “Seven River Journey Through Europe” will take guests through 14 different countries, including visits to 17 different Unesco Heritage Sites, on a premium 46-night experience.

While it may be record-setting in length, the groundbreaking cruise will host just 144 guests on what is considered to be the highest-rated ships in Europe, creating an intimate experience for its maiden voyage and beyond.

“At AmaWaterways, we continually anticipate the needs of our guests and always strive to provide innovative experiences that push industry standards. With the pent-up demand for travel we are seeing and the increase in requests for our longer cruises, we feel this is the perfect time to introduce our incredible, all-new Seven River Journey,” AmaWaterways Co-Founder, Rudi Schreiner, said in a press release.

The Seven River Journey will feature some of the most sought-after destinations in Europe, including the city of Paris, the historic D-Day landing beaches of Normandy, the Lahneck Castle in Germany, and various other destinations across Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, and beyond.

Guests will also have access to over 130 complimentary excursions to choose from while on board, as well as fine dining and a curated wine list, a wellness host offering yoga, core strengthening, and stretching classes, and a myriad of other amenities you’d expect from a luxury riverliner.

“The initial response has been remarkable since we first teased the news of this experience, and I am confident that we will exceed expectations when we set sail in June 2023, creating unforgettable memories for all of the 144 adventurous guests on board,” added Schreiner.

Further details, including booking information, will be released to the public on the official AmaWaterways website next Tuesday, March 16, 2021. The journey, which is expected to set sail on June 1, 2023, will cost approximately US$25,999 per person for a base level stateroom.
