AmaWaterways to bring Black heritage itinerary to Egypt

AmaWaterways is adding a new destination to its Black heritage river cruise series in 2024.

The Soulful Epicurean Experience will expand to Egypt beginning on May 17, 2024, exploring the African and Black diaspora while sailing on the 11-night Secrets Egypt & the Nile itinerary onboard the AmaDahlia.

Guests may opt for a three-night pre-cruise or one-night post-cruise land tour in Cairo on this itinerary.

This version of the itinerary will shine a light on Egypt’s Black history through visits to local communities, focusing on regional cuisine and offering curated shore excursions, such as a visit to a Nubian village where guests will meet the locals who continue to carry on the traditions of their Egyptian ancestors.

Guests will also see the classic wonders of Egypt’s ancient civilization, with the cruise sailing roundtrip from Luxor, visiting the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Valley of the Kings and Queens, and Karnak and Luxor temples.

In addition to the new destination available in Egypt, AmaWaterways has added two new 2024 dates to the Soulful Epicurean Experience cruise series in France due to high demand.

Guests will have the option to set sail on the 10-night Colors of Provence itinerary on June 13, cruising from Arles to Lyon and finishing with a three-night stay in Paris, or on the June 17 departure, which does the same itinerary but in reverse, beginning with the three-night stay in Paris before boarding the cruise.
