AmaPrima - user reviews and comments

AmaPrima Wiki

The APT AmaPrima boat is the 4th among the newest generation AMA river cruise ships of the Concerto-class, with sisterships AmaBellaAmaCertoAmaReinaAmaSerenaAmaSonataAmaVerdeAmaVenita. 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).

Vessel's construction (hull and superstructure) was done at the Vahali Shipyard in Belgrade 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 AmaPrima ship was towed to Holland for final outfitting at Scheepswerf Vahali (Gendt).

The AMA cruise ship Prima was launched on August 6, 2013. It was christened in Vilshofen (Germany) by Mrs Valerie Wilson - founder, chairman and CEO of the "Valerie Wilson Travel" agency, based in NYC New York /celebration-leisure-corporate-cruise travel company).

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