AmaSiena Wiki

APT AmaSiena boat is among the company's newest river cruise ships of the modified Concerto-class, with sisterships AmaKrisitna (2016), AmaLea (2018), AmaLucia (2021), AmaMora (2019), 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).

The name of the boat's godmother was officially announced in late-October 2019. Debbie Fiorino is the COO and Senior VP of World Travel Holdings Inc (2003-founded US company, headquartered in Wilmington MA) which is currently ranked the world's largest cruise travel agency.

AmaSiena's inaugural cruise was originally scheduled for July 22, 2020, with the christening ceremony planned for mid-August 2020. However, due to the COVOD crisis, the boat's inauguration was postponed for 2021. The naming ceremony of AMA's 26th boat was held on September 1, 2021, in Lahnstein Germany. The special event (led by Godmother Debbie Fiorino) was attended by the VIP guests Rudi Schreiner (AmaWaterways’ President) and Kristin Karst (AMA's Executive VP).

The vessel's construction (hull and superstructure, ENI number 7002135) 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 AmaSiena 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.
