AmaWaterways Celebrates Christening Of AmaSerena

AmaWaterways celebrates the christening of its new 164-passenger vessel AmaSerena in Vilshofen, Germany.

AmaWaterways co-founders, Rudi Schreiner and Kristin Karst, were joined by the ship’s Godmother, Michelle Fee – CEO and Co-Founder of US travel agency Cruise Planners– for a series of festivities at the conclusion of the ship’s Melodies of the Danube sailing. Local dignitaries, including Mayor Florian Gams and 2nd County Commissioner, Rainmund Kneidinger, helped officially welcome the vessel to the fleet.

It was a festive occasion complete with live music, local entertainers and authentic Bavarian cuisine. Traditions including the signing of the ship’s guestbook, a prayer by the abbot, and the ship’s official christening preceded a closing ceremony with fireworks.

AmaSerena joins the AmaWaterways fleet alongside her sister ships AmaReina, AmaPrima, AmaCerto and AmaSonata.

She offers spacious accommodations - as expected with AmaWaterways - that feature the line’s first-ever connecting staterooms. Guests sailing aboard AmaSerena will enjoy the comfort of signature twin balconies, salon and spa services, sun deck, multiple dining venues, including The Chef’s Table restaurant, and intimate wine rooms, as well as fitness rooms and heated sun deck swimming pool with swim-up bar.

Twin Balconies, which are exclusive to AmaWaterways are available in most staterooms aboard AmaSerena, which measure a spacious 210-235 sq. feet, with four suites measuring 300 sq. feet. In total she features 82 staterooms and 3 suites.

AmaSerena also offers more than two dozen bicycles which are free for guest use. The bicycles give you the freedom to venture out and explore the riverside bikeways. Or, meander through quaint cobblestone streets. The bikes are set up and ready for use as soon as the boat docks.
