AMAWATERWAYS has released its 2011 brochure, the highlight of which are new ships in Europe, on Russia’s Volga River, and on the Mekong River in Southeast Asia.
“AMAWATERWAYS has experienced tremendous growth in the past few years, and 2011 promises to be our most successful year on record,” said Rudi Schreiner, president of AMAWATERWAYS. “More and more travelers are discovering that river cruising truly is the best way to experience Europe, Russia and Southeast Asia.”
These new 161-passengervessels feature staterooms that average 214 square feet each, with the majority of them boasting double balconies. The ships also offer several dining options, including an intimate private chef’s table restaurant that seats 24 guests, a wine bar and two restaurants.
The ships also house a library with a fireplace and a heated swimming pool on the Sun Deck. The exclusive “Infotainment” system offers complimentary high-speed Internet access and complimentary first-run Hollywood movies. All AMAWATERWAYS vessels have complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the ship.
Next spring will also mark the debut of the completely redesigned AMAKATARINA on Russia’s Volga-Baltic Waterway. Guests on the culture-rich Moscow to St. Petersburg “Russian Waterways” itinerary will have a choice of 10 different stateroom categories, including four different suite categories and accommodations up to 432 square feet in size. Seventy-six staterooms aboard AMAKATARINA feature balconies, and the lavishly appointed vessel will also include an alternative restaurant, conference hall, sauna and solarium.
In 2011, the new AMALOTUS will join LA MARGUERITE on the Mekong River in Vietnam and Cambodia, offering 7-night cruises from Siem Reap, Cambodia to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The 124-passenger AMALOTUS will feature 226 square-foot deluxe staterooms. More than 82 percent of the staterooms have balconies. Junior suites are 290 square feet of space and suites are 452 square feet each.
AMAWATERWAYS will continue to offer its popular itineraries throughout Europe on the Danube, Main, Rhine and Mosel rivers. Many itineraries will take advantage of the Koblenz Flower Show, which will take place from April to October of 2011. New for 2011 is a sweeping “From the North Sea to the Black Sea” for a grand tour of Europe and “Melodies of the Danube,” featuring a 7-night cruise from Budapest to Vishofen followed by a 3-night stay in Munich.
