AmaWaterways’ newest ship, AmaKristina, celebrated its official launch on April 28 at Vahali Shipyard in Serbia

During the event, AmaWaterways Executive Vice President and Co-Owner Kristin Karst baptized her namesake vessel. AmaWaterways President and Co-Owner Rudi Schreiner then honored long-time shipbuilding partners and friends Koert and Marian Kamphuisen, presenting them with a memorial plate. After remarks by Karst and Schreiner, guests enjoyed a commemorative champagne toast, a spread of local specialties and farewell fireworks. 

AmaKristina is currently being transferred by tugboat on a three-week journey from Vahali Shipyard in Serbia to Vahali Shipyard in the Netherlands, where its interior will be completed. AmaKristina is modeled after the line’s newest ships, AmaStella and AmaViola, specifically designed to cater to the multi-generational and group markets with connecting cabins. Guests sailing aboard one of the new ships will have access to a greater number of AmaWaterways’ twin-balcony (French and outside balconies) staterooms, which provide panoramic views, as well as expanded fitness rooms and salon and massage areas on the lower deck. 

AmaKristina sets sail on its inaugural Rhine River cruise March 31, 2017.
