River cruises continue to be the rage especially among veteran seafarers who’ve been there and done that and young, more adventurous travlers. Many people have eschewed the genre because well river boats didn’t use to be too luxurious. But now there are lots of deluxe ones to experience such as the new AmaSonata, which is being promoted by Premier River Cruises, a travel agency for river cruise vacations, with the Los Angeles-based company’s recently launched Spotlight Series.
With the new series passengers can do a 17-night cruise on the AmaSonata from Budapest to Amsterdam on December 17th for fares from $3,689 per person for a window cabin. If you book this cruise through Premier River Cruises (PRC) by May 31, 2014 you can score a special group price, a free hotel package in Budapest, prepaid tips [$800 value], a private dinner at Rezkakas in Budapest, special private tours in Budapest and two extra [free] nights on the ship in Amsterdam for New Years Eve. Not too shabby considering this would normally cost $7,000 for two. This holiday river cruise package also includes premium stateroom, gourmet meals, complimentary fine wines, beers and free sightseeing in each port, in addition to all transfers.
To get this deal you must book and prepay for it by May 31, 2014 at 855-255-1200 or Premier site.. Fares are based on double occupancy and do not include airfare or taxes of $322 per passenger.

The AmaSonata is a sister ship to the AmaWaterways’ AmaCerto and offers state-of-the-art features such as Twin Balconies in most staterooms, which measure a spacious 210-235 sq. feet, with four suites measuring 350 sq. feet. While we haven’t sampled it yet, AmaWaterways is known for gourmet dining with free-flowing fine wines at multiple onboard dining venues. The boat boasts a heated sun deck swimming pool with a ‘swim-up’ bar; fitness center and spa; guests get complimentary ship-wide Wi-Fi and in-room Internet and Infotainment; and a fleet of free bicycles to use ashore on your own or guided tours.
