AmaWaterways to make July 3 comeback in Portugal

AmaWaterways is to resume European sailings in Portugal from July 3.

The line will restart operations in other destinations throughout the month, with Danube sailings beginning on July 21 and Rhone and Seine operations on July 22.

More Portugal sailings will be introduced alongside Spain from July 27, with more French itineraries starting on July 29 and Rhine sailings beginning on July 29.

The line’s executive vice-president and co-founder Kristin Karst said: “We are so excited to see the situation in Europe evolving in a positive direction. We are proud to announce a selection of sailings starting the first week of July in Portugal with other restart dates throughout July.

“On a personal note, being born in Germany, I could not be happier about the announcement that Europe will be opened this summer to safely welcome back tourists to assist with the much needed economic and social recovery.”

President and fellow co-founder Rudi Schreiner added: “As we proceed with our return to the rivers, we will continue to monitor the updates from global health authorities, local governments and airlines with regards to the entry requirements.

“Having successfully operated river cruises during summer 2020, our teams are experienced with enhanced health and safety protocols and are ready and eager to safely welcome guests back on board.

“Our team is committed to ensuring our guests have a wonderful experience as they return to the rivers, visiting the world’s most beautiful destinations.”
