AFAR Media Partners With AmaWaterways For 2020 Sailing
Following the program's launch this year, AFAR Media has announced a second AFAR Sailings itinerary for 2020, this time sailing Europe’s Rhine river with AmaWaterways.
“We’re very excited to partner with AmaWaterways to launch the second year of AFAR Sailings, which enables travellers to experience cruising through the lens of AFAR,” said Ellen Asmodeo-Giglio, AFAR’s EVP and Chief Revenue Officer.
“The 2020 itinerary supports our mission to travel deeper into the destinations, connecting our guests with the local people, culture, and flavours.”
AFAR Sailings guests will travel on board the award-winning 156-guest AmaKristina, sailing from Basel to Amsterdam from 2-9NOV, 2020. The cruise will pass through Switzerland, Germany, France, and the Netherlands, with a choice of 22 excursions, plus exclusive events and activities reserved only for AFAR guests.
Curated in partnership with AmaWaterways, 2020 AFAR Sailings experiences include:
A cocktail reception to meet the host for the trip, Ellen Asmodeo-Giglio, AFAR’s EVP and Chief Revenue Officer
A meet and greet with the captain
A welcome dinner just for the group at the ship’s intimate Chef’s Table restaurant
A private tasting of world-class wines in the German village of Rudesheim
A speech by a surprise guest on the last day of the cruise
Plus, AFAR Sailings will include free round-trip economy airfare and a $300 onboard credit per stateroom.
Guests can also book an optional one-night pre-cruise stay in Basel (for an additional cost) that includes a private tour of this historic city with its medieval old town, a cocktail reception with canapes along with fellow Sailings guests, breakfast the next day, and a transfer to the ship.
