    It can be said that high-end cruise line AmaWaterways and legendary carmaker Rolls-Royce share similar values. As Kristin Karst, Executive Vice President & Co-Owner of AmaWaterways says of the cruise company, “luxury and top-of-the-line design have been pillars of our mission,” since its founding over a decade ago.

    So it’s only natural that the companies team up. AmaWaterways has just announced its inclusion in the Rolls-Royce Owners’ Club’s (RROC) official 2016 yearbook, “Strive for Perfection.”

    As part of this relationship, AmaWarterways was invited to the RROC’s 64th Annual Meet in Asheville, NC, a gathering of 1,000-plus Rolls-Royce owners and fans from across America.

    Interestingly, at this event, many RROC members approached Karst with inquiries about AmaWaterways, and she concluded these individuals “share our company’s pursuit of design excellence, attention to detail and top quality personalized service.”

    Already a partner of Rolls-Royce’s parent company, BMW, AmaWaterways conducts multi-day extensions that visit BMW World and BMW Factory in Munich. So the cruise line and Rolls-Royce are definitely acquainted, and there is the interesting possibility that a bona fide Rolls will meet cruise passengers on the dock.
