Europe’s Heartland: Connect with History. Discover the Flavor!

At Carefree Vacations, we continually look for unique vacation opportunities that are exciting and meaningful for even the most sophisticated travelers. We’ve been especially impressed with AmaWaterways and their luxurious river cruise ships, superb amenities and engaging itineraries.

Their luxurious river cruise ships will make you feel like you’re in a five star resort instead of on board a ship. Their small sized ships will bring your itinerary to life with on-board experts, lectures and terrific guides. With all the details handled, you’ll spend your time enjoying the magical scenery, included excursions and stimulating companionship.

AmaWaterways is introducing two unique variations on their European river cruises, a chance to (literally) taste the best of Europe and the opportunity to explore the history of Jewish culture.

Sampling the best pressings at the vineyard is nothing like pouring a glass at home. At the vineyard, inhale the fragrance of the earth that nourished the grapes, see the vines and meet the vintners who brought them to the peak of perfection. Following the Rhine, Mosel and Danube rivers, AmaWaterways Wine Cruises highlight Europe’s acclaimed wine regions. Each cruise features on-board lectures, wine tastings, special wine pairings at meals plus unique wine-themed shore experiences.


Explore the Heritage AmaWaterways ships get closer than large cruise ships

Visit the heartland of Jewish heritage, history and culture in Europe. Led by knowledgeable guides, visitors will be enchanted by Budapest‘s Dohany Street Synagogue and Oscar Schindler’s house in Regensburg. Centuries-old traditions, personal legacies and poignant stories unfold at the Jewish Museum, Judenplatz, Sigmund Freud’s House and the Jewish Quarter in Vienna. Explore vivid landmarks, such as Prague‘s new Jewish Cemetery, the Nuremberg palace of Justice and the tomb of Rabbi Chatam Sofer in Bratislava, and the second largest city in Austria, Linz. Each itinerary is surprising, enriching and relaxing.


All AmaWaterways European river cruises include many amenities that other cruise lines charge for. You will enjoy complimentary free-flowing wine, beer and soft drinks with every dinner on board, bottled water in your stateroom replenished daily, theme dinners, cooking demonstrations and many other value added experiences at no additional cost.
