The special itinerary includes excursions highlighting the region’s jazz, food and wine, as well as the region’s Black history. One such excursion honors Josephine Baker, the first Black woman inducted into France’s Pantheon mausoleum, while another is a “Black History of Paris” city tour.
Travelers who book the special itinerary can save $1,180 per person when booked by September 30, 2022, with the introductory package pricing offer. With the savings, the cruise and land package is $4,499 per person. Guests also receive a complimentary hotel transfer.
“Following ongoing dialogue between the AmaWaterways leadership team and our valued travel advisor partners in recent years, we identified significant demand for a curated experience that connects Black travelers both to each other and to international destinations rich with African-American history,” said Jazzmine Douse, director of national accounts at AmaWaterways and member of Northstar Travel Group’s Black Advisory Board. “We believe our Soulful Epicurean Experience on the River cruise is the perfect way to celebrate the heritage, traditions and cultures of our global family.”
