AmaWaterways is launching another new river cruise ship: the AmaSiena. Slated for a launch date of July 1, 2020, the 156-guest ship will sail seven-, 10- and 11-night itineraries in Europe along the Rhine, Main, Moselle and Danube rivers. 

Like its sibling vessels, the AmaLea, the AmaKristina and the upcoming AmaMora, the new ship will have connecting staterooms and a variety of dining choices, such as regionally inspired cuisine in the Main Restaurant and a wine-paired tasting menu in The Chef’s Table Restaurant

In a written statement AmaWaterways President and Co-founder Rudi Schreiner cited the continued and rising popularity of river cruising as a reason behind the introduction of the new ship.
