AmaStella - user reviews and comments

AmaStella Wiki

APT AmaStella boat is among company's newest river cruise ships of the modified Concerto-class, with sisterships AmaKrisitna (2016), AmaLea (2018), AmaLucia (2021), AmaMora (2019), AmaSiena (2020), 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).

On June 14, 2016, in Vilshofen was held the vessel's christening ceremony. Boat's godmother is Mrs Carole Smethurst - owner of Bicton Travel (Perth Australia based agency). The naming ceremony was attended by AmaWaterways co-founders Kristin Karst and Rudi Schreiner, also by shipbuilders, crew, local politicians, travel agents, media representatives. On June 15 (also in Vilshofen) was christened the sistership AmaViola.

Vessel's construction (hull and superstructure, ENI number 07002031) 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 AmaStella 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.
