One of the benefits of working with Connections Family Travel for your vacations is knowing that the companies I use to create your trips have been vetted and match my standards for service and responsible travel. One of those companies is AmaWaterways; at their core is a commitment to make a positive impact on the world by celebrating diversity, giving back to local communities and reducing their impact on the environment.

Right now, AmaWaterways is offering all medical professionals, first responders and employees of essential services a complimentary Future Cruise Certificate, which can be used with one paying guest in the same stateroom. The $1,200 CAD certificate and prepaid gratuities may be redeemed for any AmaWaterways Europe or Asia sailing through Dec. 31, 2021 for reservations made within 90 days of the sailing date.

“There are none more deserving of a river cruise vacation than today’s frontline heroes—the doctors, nurses, paramedics, police officers, firefighters and many other frontline professionals who are diligently helping others and inspiring hope during these challenging times,” said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-founder of AmaWaterways. “To express our deepest gratitude, we hope to welcome these very special individuals and their loved ones on an unforgettable river cruise as soon as we resume sailing.”

This invitation is only for medical professionals, first responders, and employees of essential services with valid ID and isn't combinable with any other promotions; terms & conditions will apply. In the same spirit, I'll be waiving my professional fees for all frontline responders who take advantage of this AmaWaterways offer.

Not a first responder who’s eligible for a complimentary river cruise? AmaWaterways currently has an option for you to reserve a 2021 journey, with savings of up to $1,800 CAD per stateroom, plus complimentary pre-paid gratuities. This offer can be applied to any AmaWaterways destination for travel in 2021, including Egypt’s Nile River, where you'll sail aboard the stunning newly designed AmaDahlia on an unforgettable 11-night river cruise and land itinerary.
