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.
