AmaWaterways has announced plans to add two new ships to its European fleet in 2016: AmaViola and AmaStella.
The new ships will be the third and fourth vessels in their class, and will be equipped with connecting cabins aimed at groups and families traveling together. Room configurations include:
- 12 staterooms that can accommodate up to three family members each
- Six sets of adjoining cabins that can be connected via an internal doorway, accommodating families of up to five
- Four suites with convertible sofa-beds that can accommodate families of up to four
In order to meed growing demand for cabins with Twin or French Balconies, AmaWaterways has moved the fitness room and salon to the lower deck, allowing for more balcony staterooms and suites. Other amenities include marble-appointed bathrooms, multi-jet showerheads, plush linens, salon and massage services, fitness rooms, refreshing sun decks and heated pools with swim-up bars. Staterooms will also be equipped with AmaWaterways’ Entertainment on Demand system, which offers travelers complimentary access to Internet, Hollywood movies, a music library and more. Complimentary unlimited wine, beer and soft drinks will continue to be available with lunch and dinner; and complimentary bottled water will be provided daily in all staterooms.
AmaViola and AmaStella will join AmaWaterways’ European fleet for Danube and Rhine sailings beginning spring 2016. AmaStella’s maiden voyage will set sail April 6, followed by AmaViola’s inaugural cruise on April 20.
