Are you looking for something “a little extra”? Something beyond the specifics described on your cruise itinerary? Maybe you’d like to spend a few days, or a week, enjoying the city or countryside. Perhaps you’d like to meet a friend, or take an excursion or enroll in a cooking or painting class that’s not on your itinerary. 

With our unique Hotel Program and exclusive privileges, we offer you access to hundreds of fine hotels, resorts, lodges, spas and unique travel experiences in destinations worldwide.

Another option is to reserve a river cruise that includes a pre- or post-cruise hotel stay.  Below is information about Uniworld's and AmaWaterway's hotel programs. 

As your travel experts, we can help you with every detail of your pre- and post-cruise travel. From arranging transportation and tours to booking accommodations and recommending restaurants, we put the world at your fingertips.

Uniworld Pre/Post Hotel Program

All Uniworld land programs are fully hosted and include daily breakfast, transfers, and porterage. Most feature at least one (1) special sightseeing program. Your on-site Uniworld representative will host a welcome briefing the evening of your first day to familiarize you with the scheduled program and to provide additional information about optional excursion programs, dining recommendations, and shopping tips. Details of your pre-/post-cruise land stay or optional extension are included with your final documents.

Please note that every effort is made to ensure that your hotel room is available and ready for occupancy upon your arrival at the hotel. This is not always possible due to differences in hotel check-in/check-out times and scheduled airport-to-hotel or ship-to-hotel transfers. A short wait for your room to become available may be necessary.

AmaWaterways Pre/Post Hotel Program

With AmaWaterways, you experience a seamless transition from luxurious river cruise vessels to land programs.  AmaWaterways selects fine hotels that meet the high standards of their cruise ships, providing the same accommodation, central location and service levels as their river boats.  With an AmaWaterways land program, you are always accompanied by the same professional Cruise Manager who traveled with you on the ship.  If your land program takes place before the cruise, you will meet your Cruise Manager at the Welcome Desk in the hotel, and get to know him or her before embarking on your river cruise journey.  The fact that an experience, professional Cruise Manager is with you every step of your river cruise vacations allows AmaWaterways passengers to relax and enjoy themselves as soon as they arrive in Europe.  It's another reason why AmaWaterways leads the way in river cruising.
