Why AmaWaterways?

Post date: Author:

Family owned and operated AmaWaterways is at the forefront of river cruising. "AMA" means love... and love is at the heart of everythig they do, including their name. Celebrating 19 years on the river, family-owned and operated AmaWaterways was founded in 2002 by three families; however, our river cruise story began well before that. Co-Founder and President Rudi Schreiner was born in Vienna, at the heart of the Danube. His love of design drew him to architecture, but his even greater love of travel drew him to places far and wide. In 1975, he traveled to South America for a journalism assignment on the Amazon. It was here he designed his first ship, using what he could find to build a raft that would take him up and down the river during the next 7 months. Soon thereafter, he started working in travel, creating unique tour experiences in Europe. Offering delicious all-inclusive food onboard, a variety of on board activities, plus a plan to follow all the most up-to-date health and safety protocols so you can relax and enjoy your much-anticipated river cruise vacation.
