ms AmaKristina

For our cruise on the beautiful Rhine we will have the pleasure of sailing on the ms AmaKristina, which made its debut in 2017. This deluxe 158 passenger vessel will feature modern design elements along with all the fine amenities that we have come to expect from AmaWaterways. We will be travelling in spacious comfort in beautifully-decorated cabins that include private bathrooms, a small sitting area, a writing desk, a flat-screen television with complimentary Internet and first-run Hollywood movies, ample wardrobes, individual temperature controls, a safe, and a telephone. All cabins come with twin beds that convert to one large bed if you so choose. Enjoy spectacular views of the river and countryside through large picture windows in cabins on the Piano Deck, while all cabins on the Cello and Violin Decks offer French balconies with full-height glass doors that open and many with Outside balconies as well. Do step out of the luxurious comfort of your cabins occasionally, however, as the rest of the ship is equally inviting! Enjoy fine culinary creations in five separate dining venues, watch the scenery go by as you unwind in the entertainment lounge or wine bar, take advantage of the fitness facilities that include a heated swimming pool, a walking track and a fleet of bicycles (for the more adventurous), or simply indulge yourself in the spa with a massage, hair or beauty treatment. There is a small elevator with access to all decks except the Piano and Sun Decks. Smoking is not allowed within the ship. The ship operates exclusively in English.
