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 Stella ship are the complimentary onboard bicycles used on shore excursions/tours in each port along the cruise itineraries.
