Travel Advisory

Updated: June 21, 2022

Our European river cruise season, Egypt land and river cruise programme and African Safaris & Wildlife programmes are currently operating and our 2022 Mekong river cruise season will commence in October.

The safety and wellbeing of our guests and crew are at the centre of all our decisions and AmaWaterways will only sail if we can deliver a safe experience for our guests. Our experienced operations team is closely following the situation in Ukraine, and if necessary, we will make adjustments to our Eastern European itinerary and advise our travel partners and guests. We have a 20-year proven track record of safely adapting our cruises to ensure that unexpected events have a minimal impact on the guest experience so that those wishing to still cruise can do so, safely. Travel during these times remains a personal choice, and we have kept our flexible policies in place to best accommodate the evolving conditions.

AmaWaterways Vaccination & Testing Requirements

Until further notice, AmaWaterways will only be welcoming guests fully vaccinated against Covid-19 on board our ships. This also applies to accompanied minors.  The criteria for being considered “fully vaccinated” may differ from country to country and can impact your ability to enter the country as well as to access restaurants, trains or tourist sites.  

Travellers are responsible for ensuring they meet the travel entry requirements of each country visited during their trip. Please refer to the Travel Entry Requirements page for important details.

Suspended Sailings

At this time, all Mekong River cruises through Vietnam and Cambodia have been suspended until October 2022.

Guests affected by this decision should contact their travel agent for more information.

Flexibility Policy

We understand the importance of flexibility when making your travel plans and have designed special programs to provide additional peace of mind. Visit our Peace of Mind page for more information.
