The event is a seven day European River cruise from Amsterdam to Basel, leaving Amsterdam on Saturday, August 10, 2019 on AMA Waterways ship AmaPrima. Rick, Jonathan Butler, and Richard Elliot will be on board the whole week for entertainment in the lounge each evening and to hang with during the day and at meals. This is an up-close experience you cannot have anywhere else! River cruising is VERY different from an ocean cruise and any concert you have been to before. The key words are intimate and unplugged. From who you cruise with, to the great music you will hear, to just hanging with the band and like-minded people while exploring the beauty of Europe as up close as you can get. The ship only has 82 rooms and you will only be with friends as we plan to charter the ship.

If you never have been on a river cruise, it is quite the experience. ALL of the amenities of an AMA Waterways river cruise will be part of this cruise – from world class food, complimentary wine and beer at lunch and dinner, complimentary happy hour for an hour before dinner, included excursions to see sites and cities along the river, staterooms with river view and almost 60% have unique twin balconies comprised of a French balcony plus a walkout balcony, a cruise manager for questions and assistance, AND an incredible staff to passenger ratio. See below for a list from the cruise line of what is included on their end.

Credit card prices will range from approximately $4300 to $6600 per person for cabins and approximately $8000 per person for suites (there are only four suite type rooms). This is an all-inclusive rate which includes cabin, excursions, meals, wine and beer with lunch and dinners, happy hour before dinner, tax, port charges, administrative costs and gratuities! This is an incredible deal that is only slightly above the normal retail rates on these cruises with FIRST CLASS entertainment!
