2020 has caused all cruise and tour operators to pivot their marketing to stay in front of their customers. AmaWaterways has recreated their popular Sip & Sail Cocktail Hour held onboard each evening before dinner into a virtual experience. Included here are just a few that have been held this year featuring the many culinary delights along the rivers.
Celebration of Food and Wine Along the Danube and Rhine Rivers
Presenters: Co-Founder & Executive Vice President Kristin Karst and Award-Winning TV Host & Chef Joanne Weir
An exciting Sip & Sail celebration with Chef Joanne Weir, the award-winning television host of PBS’s Plates & Places, that takes you on a culinary journey along the Danube and Rhine rivers to some of Joanne and our Co-Founder Kristin Karst’s favorite destinations. For the first time ever during one of our virtual events, you will be treated to a live cooking demonstration, along with access to Joanne’s exclusive recipes so you can replicate some of the traditional food and drinks from the Danube and Rhine regions at home.
