AmaWaterways is currently hosting the inaugural voyage of its 19th ship,  AmaKristina

Named after AmaWaterways’ co-owner and EVP Kristin Karst,  AmaKristina joins the fleet as the company celebrates its 15th anniversary. The ship left Amsterdam on 1APR and will conclude her maiden voyage in Basel on 8APR.  The official christening ceremony – led by the vessel’s godmother Karst – will take place on 10MAY in Lahnstein.  

“The arrival of every new ship for AmaWaterways is incredibly special, but this ship notably represents 15 years of inspired design and innovation,” said Rudi Schreiner, president and co-owner of AmaWaterways. “Our guests will love the luxurious amenities and spaciousness and style of the public areas and staterooms as they experience Europe’s finest river cruise destinations.” 

Sister ship to AmaViola and AmaStellaAmaKristina accommodates 158 guests and features connecting cabins and triple occupancy staterooms tailored specifically to multigenerational family and group markets.

Guests onboard enjoy access to a greater number of AmaWaterways’ signature twin-balcony (French and outside balconies) staterooms, which provide panoramic views.

Outfitted in warm, colourful décor, the ship offers an array of communal spaces for socializing and three dining venues including The Chef’s Table, an intimate dining experience featuring a multi-course tasting menu paired with hand-selected regional wines at no additional cost.

Other AmaKristina highlights include: a sundeck with running track; heated pool and swim-up bar; elevator with enhanced access to the lower deck; expanded fitness center; hair salon and spa; free Wi-Fi throughout the ship; in-room on-demand entertainment system and complimentary beer and wine with lunch and dinner. 

AmaKristina will play host to a variety of Rhine River sailings between Amsterdam and Basel in 2017 including a Wine Themed cruise departing 11NOV and Christmas Market cruises starting 25NOV. 

The seven-night Enchanting Rhine itinerary offers guests a choice of 21-guided included tours with many escorted hiking and biking options for the active traveller. Individual exploration is made easy with a fleet of complimentary bicycles carried onboard and pre- or post-city stays in Lucerne and Zurich are also available.
