Rising in the mysterious Black Forest of Germany and emptying into the Black Sea, the Danube River bridges medieval and modern Europe as it flows across ancient and present-day boundaries, with fortresses, castles and breathtaking cityscapes rising on its banks.

AmaWaterways is now offering three unforgettable FAM cruises along this fabled waterway.

With Magna on the Danube from Feb. 25-March 3, you’ll cruise from Vilshofen to Budapest aboard the AmaMagna, savoring the beauty of places like Vienna and the medieval villages of Salzburg and Cesky Kromlov, all with breathtaking landscapes and architectural masterpieces.

Experience a culinary wonderland along the way, sampling apricot brandy and chocolate in Durnstein and participating in special events like an exclusive wine festival in Spitz. On board, the AmaMagna offers a choice of dining pleasures, from the outdoor Al Fresco with its vegetable-forward menu, to the more family-style Jimmy’s.

Romance and Music on AmaWaterways Danube River FAMs

From April 8-15, Romantic Danube aboard the AmaVerde includes the port cities of Passau, Linz, Durnstein, Vienna and spectacular Budapest, with pre-cruise nights in Munich or Prague available. Awe-inspiring USESCO World Heritage Sites, including grand abbeys and fortresses, recall the regal and romantic splendor of the Danube.

The timeless music that has been echoing across the Danube for centuries takes center stage on Celebration of Classical Music: The Danube, sailing on the AmaViola from April 27-May 4. Included are Salzburg—birthplace of Mozart—as well as Vienna, Melk, Bratislava, Slovakia and Budapest. Along the way, you’ll be treated to a variety of live performances, while ground excursions include the Composers Walking Tour in Vienna and a recital at the Budapest Opera House.

All AmaWaterways cruises include complimentary tours as well as complimentary choices of wines and local beers with lunch and dinner each day.
