AmaWaterways’ Co-Founders and Owners Rudi Schreiner and Kristin Karst believe in the motto “under promise and over deliver,” and that desire to “over deliver” translates into actions throughout the AmaWaterways’ fleet. Here’s what’s going on with AmaWaterways right now.
First-Ever Founder’s Cruise with Rudi Schreiner or Kristin Karst
For both repeat and new guests of AmaWaterways, the Founders’ Cruises are opportunities to experience the Danube River this fall, alongside Rudi Schreiner and Kristin Karst. In a special limited-time offer, those who book before July 31, 2018 will receive the best available stateroom for $2,999 per person on Danube Serenade cruises.
Guests have the choice of joining Schreiner, the company’s president and recognized “godfather of river cruising” on the November 17 departure or the Executive Vice President and champion of AmaWaterways’ Wellness Program, Kristin Karst, on the November 18 departure. Each will host their seven-night cruise, both of which include a traditional Thanksgiving feast, and the two will come together for one special evening on each cruise.

Unique Experience: Danube in Flames Festival
Every year since 2002, the Donau in Flammen (Danube in Flames) Promenade Festival has illuminated the Danube River with displays of fireworks choreographed to music. Thousands of people flock to Danube shores to witness this event and sample local culinary delicacies. This year, AmaViola will take part in the procession of vessels along the river during the festival on July 7. This experience will allow her guests to stand on deck mid-river as the fireworks festivities unfold around them.
