River Cruise Newsletter Dated May 16, 2019

Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Rhine River cruises are among our most popular itineraries, and AmaWaterways has some terrific offers for departures along this fabled river, as well as other waterways that its ships sail.

The following deals must be booked by May 31:

Fly for free from select gateways on select European river cruises, including Captivating Rhine and Treasures of the Main and Rhine.

Companion flies for free in business-class on select departures of itineraries like Magnificent Europe, which traverses the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers.

Save up to $1,500 per couple off select sailings in Europe (including Rhine wine cruises and Christmas markets departures) and along the Mekong River in Cambodia and Vietnam.

Save up to $3,000 per couple off select 2020 river cruises in Europe and Southeast Asia.

Save 50% off pre- or post-cruise hotel packages on select Mekong cruises.

Plus, receive a free $300 onboard credit per couple on select 2019 cruises on European rivers and the Mekong. This deal can be combined with select offers.

The upfront price of your AmaWaterways vacation includes sightseeing, meals and unlimited wine, beer and soft drinks at lunch and dinner, plus a "Sip & Sail" cocktail hour. It also includes AmaWaterways' Wellness Program, where wellness hosts lead a variety of fitness classes and lectures. Join a morning yoga session on the sundeck or a heart-pumping cardio class. You can take part in guided hiking, biking and jogging excursions, or borrow one of the onboard bicycles.

And so you'll never miss out on the views as you're cruising the Rhine, AmaWaterways ships have staterooms with twin balconies: a French balcony with glass doors that open to a railing and a full balcony that you can walk out on.

The Rhine cruises of AmaWaterways sail into a scenic panorama of storybook castles, terraced vineyards and medieval towns. Routes go through Germany, France and the Netherlands.

Guests have a choice of complimentary excursions in port. In Rudesheim, ride a gondola above vineyard-carpeted hills and then sample riesling wines, or go on a guided bike ride through the town and along the Rhine to Schloss Johannisberg, a castle and winery.

From Ludwigshafen, you can travel to the impressive, red sandstone castle of Heidelberg; join a guided hike up the Philosopher's Path for panoramic views of Heidelberg; or visit Speyer, one of Germany's oldest cities.

See the picturesque half-timbered structures of the pedestrian-only Petite France district of Strasbourg in Alsace, a region incorporating French and German cultures. Or, bicycle through Strasbourg and its Parc de l'Orangerie, the city's oldest park.

Your port call in Breisach provides a jumping-off point for several intriguing excursions.  Go to pretty Riquewihr in eastern France, one of two Alsatian towns said to have inspired the animated settings for Disney's "Beauty and the Beast." Travel to the storied Black Forest, or see the Gothic cathedral of Freiburg, built more than 800 years ago.

Every AmaWaterways ship on the Rhine takes guests through the Rhine Gorge. A UNESCO World Heritage Site dotted with castles and vineyards, it's one of the most scenic stretches of the river.

On board, enjoy meals that feature local ingredients and recipes. Lunches and dinners are paired with complimentary wines, including selections from Germany's Rheingau and France's Alsace regions.
