AmaLea Wiki

APT AmaLea boat is among company's newest river cruise ships of the modified Concerto-class, with sisterships AmaKrisitna (2016), AmaLucia (2021), AmaMora (2019), AmaSiena (2020), AmaStella (2016), AmaViola (2016). This is a new APT riverboat design featuring the "Twin Balcony" stateroom concept. It combines the traditional French Balcony with a second (covered, step-out) 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).

Ship's christening ceremony was on May 26, 2018, held in Vilshofen Germany. Boat's godmother is Filomena Andre (AAA executive). She started as a travel agent, and in 2010 joined "AAA Southern California" as a travel product manager. The event was organized as 7-day celebration cruise, attended by Filomena Andre, Rudi Schreiner (company's President) Kristin Karst (company's Executive Vice President), international media and travel industry representatives. Ship's Captain is Jan de Bruijn. The ceremony in Vilshofen also included a welcome speech by the city's Mayor Florian Gams, gala dinner and fireworks show.

During the inaugural cruise season, AmaLea had scheduled all six "Tulip Time" themed itineraries before starting the 7-day Danube River cruise program (Vilshofen-Budapest). Two of the 2018 voyages (in November) were wine-themed and hosted by Amelia Ceja (Ceja Vineyards Napa CA's president) and Frederick Frank (Dr Konstantin Frank Wine Cellars NY's president). The inaugural season also had scheduled four Christmas Market-themed cruises on the Danube.

Vessel's construction (hull and superstructure, ENI number 07002067) was done at the Vahali Shipyard in Zasavica (Sremska Mitrovica, Serbia). The 1923-founded Dutch shipbuilding company (Scheepswerf En Machinefabriek Vahali BV) owns and operates yards in Serbia (Belgrade, and Zasavica) and in Holland (Gendt). Vahali Shipyard Zasavica was officially opened in 2013. Following the construction in Serbia, the AmaLea ship was towed to Holland for final outfitting at Scheepswerf Vahali (Gendt).

 

All AMAwaterways ships provide complimentary bicycles (stored on the boat's sundeck) on shore excursions/tours in each port along the cruise itineraries.
