AmaWaterways AmaPrime

AmaWaterways announced it's expanding its popular on-board wellness program to six ships in 2018; the program was tested aboard AmaLyra in 2017. The wellness program includes morning stretches, jogging, yoga, cardio/core strengthening, resistance band workouts and circuit training. The wellness activities are complemented by discussion groups with a focus on healthy eating and relaxation techniques.

The river cruise line will add the program to AmaCerto, AmaPrima, AmaSonata, AmaDante and AmaDolceAmaLyra will remain a host of the program as well, for a total of six ships. Guests booking a voyage that offers the program are encouraged to pack a bathing suit, comfortable exercise clothes and appropriate shoes to take advantage of the special facilities and events.

In addition to the wellness program, AmaWaterways offers healthy food options on its breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus. Guests also have access to hydration stations, breakfast vitamin shots, fresh fish, cage-free eggs, and crate-free pork along with gluten-free, low-sodium and vegetarian options.

Kristin Karst, the executive VP and co-owner of AmaWaterways, said the cruise line’s health-conscious approach to cruising is a response to a growing demand for healthy, active travel options. Along with the wellness program, AmaWaterways’ European ships provide complimentary bicycles available for independent use and guided excursions, as well as hiking excursions to accommodate this increased interest in healthy travel.

AmaWaterways offers river cruises with 19 ships that sail Europe’s Dutch and Belgian waterways, plus the Danube, Rhine, Moselle, Main, Rhone, Seine, Garonne, Dordogne, and Douro rivers, Southeast Asia’s Mekong River, and Africa’s Chobe River. In 2017, it was awarded “Best River Cruise Line” by the AFAR Reader’s Choice Awards.
