AmaWaterways Celebrates Launch Of AmaDahlia

AmaWaterways recently celebrated the launch of its newest ship – AmaDahlia – on the Nile River, sailing the Secrets of Egypt & The Nile itinerary.

In marking the occasion, co-founders Rudi Schreiner and Kristin Karst surprised the ship’s first guests by joining them for a cocktail hour at the five-star Four Seasons Hotel Cairo At The First Residence where all guests enjoyed their four-day pre-cruise land packages.

Guests then boarded the ship in Luxor where they were greeted by local musicians and an Egyptian whirling dervish performance before exploring the stunning AmaDahlia and embarking on an unforgettable 7-night river cruise experience.

Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-founder of AmaWaterways, said: “I am absolutely delighted to have our wonderful new AmaDahlia sailing the Nile River.

Karst continued: “It was truly such a joy to be with our guests as together we discovered the beautiful setting on board, reflecting the local culture and distinctive art of the region. Egypt has a very special place in my heart, and I am so excited to have many more guests experience the beauty of AmaDahlia and the unparalleled experiences that this itinerary offers.”

Featuring 36 staterooms including 16 suites between 370 and 430 sq. ft., the luxurious 72-passenger AmaDahlia offers an intimate atmosphere with an abundance of space for guests to relax and unwind after a day of awe-inspiring discovery.
