AmaWaterways Announces Sister Ship to AmaDahlia to Sail Nile River

On the heels of AmaWaterwaysAmaDahlia celebrating the close of its first season on Egypt’s Nile River last week, the luxury river cruise line this week announced it will launch a second ship in Egypt. The second ship, named AmaLilia (after the sacred blue water lily flower of ancient Egypt), will set sail in 2024 to meet the growing demand for this offering.

Like AmaDahlia, AmaLilia will sail the “Secrets of Egypt & Nile” itinerary, offering an 11-night cruise and land experience, including a seven-night roundtrip river cruise from Luxor, paired with three nights pre- and one-night post-cruise stays in Cairo. Similar to its sister ship, AmaLilia will be designed with regionally inspired décor, spacious staterooms and suites, and a specialty restaurant included in the river cruise fare.

The river cruise portion of the itinerary will take in locations along the Nile such as the Great Hypostyle Hall of Karnak, the Temple of Luxor, and the Valley of the Kings and Queens. Guests will also be treated to exclusive private access to the Tomb of Queen Nefertari and a Nubian village.

Based off AmaDahlia, it’s likely that AmaLilia will accommodate 68 guests across 34 staterooms (24 of which will be balcony suites measuring up to 430 square feet). Onboard amenities will include a sun deck bar and swimming pool, fitness room, hair and nail salon, two massage rooms and two restaurants: The Main Restaurant and The Chef’s Table, offering a seven-course tasting menu.

Additional details regarding the new ship and its offerings will be announced soon.
