AmaWaterways christened its newest river cruise ship, AmaLea, over the weekend in Vilshofen, Germany.

Godmother Filomena Andre of AAA Travel christened the ship with the traditional breaking of a champagne bottle against the ship’s hull in front of 200 guests. The ceremony also featured the raising of a traditional Bavarian maypole and a dockside cocktail reception.

The event concluded a weeklong celebration, during which guests onboard were joined by AmaWaterways’ President and Co-Owner Rudi Schreiner and Executive Vice President and Co-Owner Kristin Karst.

The 154-guest AmaLea features AmaWaterways’ twin balconies – offering panoramic views from both the French balcony and the outside balcony. The vessel also has four suites with connecting staterooms and triple occupancy staterooms designed for multi-generational families.

Onboard amenities include various dining venues such as The Chef’s Table; a heated sun deck; swimming pool with a swim-up bar; fitness center and spa; complimentary WiFi throughout the ship; and a fleet of bicycles for guests to enjoy on their own or on guided tours.

Sister ship to AmaViola, AmaStella and AmaKristina, AmaLea will sail seven-night cruises on the Danube between Vilshofen and Budapest during the summer and fall before concluding her first season with four Iconic Christmas Market Cruises.

Tip of the Day

I do think there are possibilities for traveler advisors to make money doing domestic trips. I charge a planning fee for my time and expertise, and then book commissionable hotels and activities that meet the client’s needs.
