AmaWaterways celebrated the christening of its newest ship, AmaSiena, with a joyful ceremony in Lahnstein, Germany recently.
The company’s co-founders, president Rudi Schreiner and executive vice president Kristin Karst joined Godmother Debbie Fiorino, senior vice president and COO of Owned Brands for World Travel Holdings, for a day of festivities officially commemorating the company’s newest edition to its fleet of 26 river cruise ships.
Sister ship to AmaLucia, AmaMora, AmaLea and AmaKristina, AmaSiena features 78 staterooms, the majority of which boast AmaWaterways’ signature twin balconies, offering panoramic views from both a French and an outside balcony.
Guests can enjoy gourmet dining onboard at the Main Restaurant and The Chef’s Table, as well as a new al fresco area in the Main Lounge that is perfect for casual dining from a bistro-style menu.
Hand-selected regional wines and beer are offered during each meal, and guests are invited to savour a complimentary daily Sip & Sail cocktail hour as well.
Wellness enthusiasts are invited to join the ship’s dedicated Wellness Host for guided group fitness classes and hiking and biking tours, while those looking to relax can enjoy massage and hair salon services.
In addition, AmaSiena features an inviting Main Lounge with spacious seating areas and a heated pool and swim-up bar perfect for enjoying the stunning views along the river while soaking up the sun.
AmaSiena will sail a variety of seven-night itineraries on the Rhine river including the Enchanting Rhine, Captivating Rhine and festive Christmas Markets on the Rhine. Starting in 2022, she will also sail the Dutch and Belgium Waterways on the Best of Holland & Belgium itinerary.
