AmaWaterways Details Family Staterooms on New Ships

AmaWaterways’ two new European river ships set to debut next year will offer a variety of family-friendly staterooms and suites.

The 158-passenger sister ships AmaViola and AmaStella will have 12 staterooms that can accommodate up to three family members each, six sets of adjoining cabins that can be connected via an internal doorway, and four suites with convertible sofa-beds that can accommodate up to four.

Also, the fitness room and salon will be moved to the lower deck, opening up space on higher decks for balcony cabins and suites.

“These new ships have been developed in a way that will bring added comfort to groups and families seeking the beauty, history and culture of a European river vacation,” said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-owner of AmaWaterways. “They were designed in part with feedback from our new partners at Adventures by Disney, and we are confident that the final result will broaden the appeal of our product to new types of travelers.”

Adventures by Disney is offering seven family river cruises on the AmaViola in 2016.

Both vessels will feature marble-appointed bathrooms, multi-jet showerheads, plush linens, sun decks and heated pools with swim-up bars. Fares include complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner, and complimentary bottled water provided daily in staterooms.

The new ships will start cruising on the Danube and Rhine rivers in the spring. AmaStella’s maiden voyage will depart April 6, followed by AmaViola’s inaugural cruise on April 20.
