AmaWaterways announced it will launch a 2nd river cruise ship to sail in Egypt.
AmaLilia is scheduled to debut on the Nile River in 2024, where she will sail the 11-night "Secrets of Egypt & Nile" cruisetour.
The itinerary starts with a 3-night hotel stay in Cairo (Egypt) where are visited the Egyptian Museum along with historical sites including the Memphis pyramids, followed by a 7-night AmaLilia cruise (roundtrip from Luxor) prior to disembarking to spend the final night in Cairo.
AmaLilia will be constructed similarly to her sistership, AmaDahlia, boasting regionally inspired decor, a specialty restaurant, spacious staterooms and suites.
According to AmaWaterways, the move to launch another vessel in Egypt came from the increasing demand for the destination. AMA's first vessel to operate on Nile River in Egypt (AmaDahlia) was introduced in September 2021.
