Cruising Greece's Aegean Treasures | tempt your taste buds in Greece | Vantage Travel

Opa! This Greek word doesn't exactly have an English translation, but excitement can be interpreted in any language. Adventure throughout the ancient world and magnificent beaches of the Greek islands, where the crystal seas and blue domed roofs and white cliff-side homes will spark your wanderlust. Particularly after a tasty treat of baklava.

Italy: Diverse Culture, Diverse Culinary Scene

Don’t come to Italy if you’re on a diet — unless it’s a diet of hearty carbs, heavenly desserts, and artisanal wines. Actually, Italy is equally renowned for its selection of healthfully grilled and sautéed vegetables, fresh seafood, and exquisitely prepared meats and cheeses. So, whatever your culinary tastes, prepare your taste buds for the vacation of a lifetime — and buon appetito!

A Foodie's Dream

AmaWaterways was inducted into La Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, a prestigious international gastronomic society dedicated to fine cuisine. As a result, the onboard cuisine is visually stunning, locally inspired, and decadently unforgettable. Plus, your journey takes you to some of the world's most renowned culinary capitals in the world, such as Lyon, France.

Set Sail On A Wine Cruise

Have you ever wanted to learn the differences between a Moselle Riesling from Germany and an Alsatian Riesling from France? Or taste for yourself the divergences of Left Bank wines from Right Bank ones while sailing through Bordeaux? Then your questions will be answered, and your palate will be dazzled, on an AmaWaterways Wine Cruise.

The Hills of Heidelberg

Next your eyes will be drawn to the Ottheinrich Building, where more eyes will be staring back at you. Elaborate sculptures on the four-story façade still stand, memorializing German rulers, figures from antiquity and Roman rule, even Elector Otthenreich himself, who felt he was important enough to be placed among such historic celebrities.

Simply Stunning

Thermal baths, imperial architecture and a magnificent skyline that illuminates at night, Budapest is a city with something for everyone. It is home to several UNESCO World Heritage Sites - the iconic banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter, Heroes' Square, the Millennium Underground Railway and Andrássy Avenue among them.

Palace of Wonders

When you first walk up to Portugal's Mateus Palace, it feels like an old, familiar friend, but you're not sure why. A stunning Baroque masterpiece-the work of famed architect and artist Nicolau Nasoni from 1739-1743-it's lavish in every detail. Elegantly formal flowerbeds are mazelike in appearance, rivaling those of more prestigious palace gardens throughout Europe.

The Cake That Started A National Holiday

The crème-de-la-crème of cake wizardry here is the iconic Sachertorte, available at the renowned Hotel Sacher. Rich dark chocolate, apricot jam and utter deliciousness to send your taste buds spiraling into sensory overload.

Truffle Treasure Hunting in France

Sprinkled over handmade pastas, elegant risottos, flavorful bruschetta and hearty omelettes Truffles have long been a treasure find in dishes from Michelin rated restaurants around the world. Of course, many of the best hail from France where, along with fine wines and chocolate, they are one of the country’s most highly prized epicurean delicacies and aphrodisiacs. And no, these aren’t the chocolate kinds sold in Godiva.

Wishing Upon A Star in Rothenburg | AmaWaterways™

A visit to the Old Bavarian town of Rothenburg is a delightful, real-world romp into your favorite fairytale classics. Indeed, the city has inspired not only the village in the Disney classic Pinocchio but also centuries of other artists and filmmakers.

AmaWaterways Website
The Lifeblood of Transylvania

Have a wickedly good time as you take a bite off your bucket list, visiting the castle that inspired the story of Dracula in legendary Transylvania.

A Napoleon Complex | AmaWaterways™

A secret staircase for Napoleon. A vibrant garden for Josephine. The iconic "Napoleon Crossing the Alps" painting by Jacques-Louis David. Grand chandeliers, elegant checkerboard tile floors and a painted vaulted ceiling in the library.

The River of Dreams

Where else but the incredible Chobe River can you see the mighty hippo frolic alongside you in the water, spouting water from its nostrils. Stare wide-eyed as the largest concentration of elephants in all of Africa freely swim and splash about. Feel yourself becoming humbled as you spot the graceful giraffe bow his elongated neck to quench his thirst at a watering hole.

The Life and Diary of Anne Frank | AmaWaterways™

Six million other Jewish people were killed in the Holocaust, six million other stories - and yet it is Anne Frank's story which has remained seared into the world's collective conscious.

All Aboard Adventure | AmaWaterways™

Once upon an elegant time, wood-paneled coaches, white-gloved staff and Victorian-era style greeted adventurers ready to be whisked off on the safari of their dreams.

Something Good Brewing

No need to adjust your beer goggles: when you visit Pilzen, you’re sure to be seeing (and drinking) beer just about everywhere. Why? Because Pilzen is the proud birthplace of the pale-gold blond lager known as Pilsner beer -- the world’s most popular style brew.

Dancing On Water | AmaWaterways™

Think you know everything about puppets? Think again. While finger puppets, sock puppets, handheld puppets and the entire Jim Henson family (think Sesame Street, The Muppets and Fraggle Rock) have long been delighting audiences, the Vietnamese have enjoyed their unique water puppetry (called Múa Rối Nước) for centuries.

A Swiss Classic: Veal Zurich

A busy day in the Swiss Alps, yodeling atop one of the legendary mountains or taking in the magnificent waterfalls will surely whet your appetite.

Move Over, John Wayne

Cowboys. A staple of the American Old West, Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns and… Hungary??? Indeed, for centuries the vast, sweeping plains of the Hungarian Puszta have been managed by cowboy-like csikós -- but with a distinctive flair neither Will Rogers nor Annie Oakley ever mastered.

Once Upon A Time... Or A Castle!

“I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream.” Upon seeing Germany’s legendary Neuschwanstein Castle, you may find yourself with a bit of déjà vu, whistling these familiar lyrics to Walt Disney’s classic film, Sleeping Beauty.

Coffee With a Kick: Rüdesheimer Coffee

Why just settle for a regular cup of joe? Or even a specially whipped up espresso or caffé macchiato when you can indulge in a classic Rüdesheimer kaffee (aka Rüdesheimer coffee).

Beer'ing It
