Most markets are open from the last week of November through December 22nd.

AmaWaterways' Onboard Holiday Experiences

In addition to the wonderful experiences and amenities available during your river cruise, both on board and ashore, our holiday cruise traditions help make memories you will savor forever.
  • Shoes for St. Nick
On one special night during each cruise, guests are encouraged to leave slippers we provide outside their stateroom door, just as children do throughout Europe on St. Nicholas Day. Upon waking up the next morning, they’ll find their shoes filled with treats by our AmaWaterways elves!
  • Tree-Trimming Party
Tinsel and garland and baubles, oh my! Guests are invited to help adorn onboard trees with festive décor. The first to find the glass pickle ornament within the tree wins a prize!
  • Christmas Cookies
A festive assortment of seasonal cookies awaits guests in their staterooms on Christmas Eve.
  • New Year’s Eve Countdown
Following a jovial gala dinner, guests will have the opportunity to attend a party on board and participate in a countdown to the new year, complete with champagne for the official “cheers.”
