AmaKristina wiki

  • The APT AmaKristina boat is among the newest generation AMA river cruise ships of the Concerto-class. Her sisters are AmaLea (2018), AmaViola (2016), AmaStella (2016), AmaMora (2019), and also AmaBellaAmaCertoAmaPrimaAmaReinaAmaSerenaAmaSonataAmaVerde and AmaVista. This is a new APT river cruise boat design featuring the "Twin Balcony" accommodations concept. It combines the traditional French Balcony with a second covered open-air verandah for all-weather use. Each of these riverboats is powered by two "Caterpillar" marine diesel engines (model "C32 DITA ACERT" V-12, total power output 1900 kW / 2550 HP).
  • Another unique feature of AMAwaterways AmaKristina cruises is the complimentary using of onboard bicycles on shore excursions/tours in each of the ports along the itineraries.
  • AmaWaterways' 20th riverboat was christened on May 10, 2017, in Lahnstein. The boat’s godmother is Mrs Kristin Karst - AmaWaterways company's Co-Owner and Executive Vice President. The naming ceremony coincided with the company's 15th-anniversary year.
