'The vast majority of our guests are already vaccinated and they, along with our travel advisor partners, have expressed support of this new policy,' Rudi Schreiner said
AmaWaterways is now requiring travelers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, effective immediately.

The decision was made following recent changes in certain European countries that now mandate up to a 10-day quarantine for unvaccinated travelers upon entry. Many countries have implemented procedures that strongly encourage travelers to be vaccinated and, in some cases, restrict access to certain venues unless they are vaccinated or can provide a negative COVID-19 test result valid for 24 hours.

'AmaWaterways acknowledges that vaccination is an important tool in mitigating the health risks associated with COVID-19 worldwide,' President and Co-founder Rudi Schreiner said.

Most travelers already vaccinated

He added: 'The vast majority of our guests are already vaccinated and they, along with our travel advisor partners, have expressed support of this new policy as an added layer of protection to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all guests and crew on board.'
