Every generation travels a bit differently, with their value systems and expectations setting the tone for their well-earned journeys. While river cruising has been associated with older travelers, award-winning AmaWaterways has revolutionized the river cruise experience, expanding its appeal across generational divides. Innovations such as active hiking and biking excursions, as well as the introduction of AmaMagna—the most luxurious and innovative ship cruising the Danube River—have made AmaWaterways river cruises attractive to travelers of all ages.
Millennial travelers crave authenticity, and AmaWaterways leverages its heritage along the rivers to meticulously craft itineraries featuring genuine cultural experiences. The newly introduced Flavors of Burgundy itinerary in France goes beyond typical city tours, allowing guests to choose how they explore Eastern France. This itinerary features a plethora of food and wine tasting excursions, including visits to charming wineries and vibrant city markets. With overnight stays in nearly every port, guests can independently explore the cities and towns along the Rhône and Saône rivers to gain fresh perspectives on these destinations, enjoying an evening stroll along historic streets or savoring a drink at a café like a local.

For Generation X, fostering family togetherness during travel is a priority, whether they are traveling with their adult children or with younger grandchildren. AmaWaterways welcomes travelers of all ages, facilitating these multigenerational journeys. On the line’s Enchanting Rhine itinerary, ships dock in destinations that feature historic architecture and unique landmarks that captivate visitors of all ages. Excursions range from visiting charming fairytale towns like Strasbourg to more active tours such as guided bike rides through Breisach’s wine country. Furthermore, ships on this itinerary, including AmaLucia and AmaSiena, provide connecting and triple/quadruple occupancy staterooms and suites, providing seamless accommodations for families. The line’s new-for-2025 Imperial Danube itinerary makes travel to and from Europe simple, with this 7-night roundtrip river cruise from Budapest allowing families to arrive in and depart from the same city.
