AmawaterwaysAmaWaterways today announced that its ships have taken the top ten spots in the second annual edition of the Berlitz: River Cruising In Europe travel guide.


Written by Douglas Ward, cruising expert and author of the popular Berlitz: Cruising and Cruise Ships, this year’s river cruising edition evaluated 310 river vessels. AmaWaterways’ ships outranked the competition in the categories of accommodations, facilities, cuisine, hospitality and miscellaneous.


“On behalf of the entire AmaWaterways team, I must say that we are truly humbled to once again be recognized as a pioneer in river cruising, with top billing yet again by Douglas Ward,” said Kristin Karst, Executive Vice President and Co-owner of AmaWaterways. “It has been an exciting year for AmaWaterways thus far and these incredible accolades underscore our focus on innovation, and our mission to deliver award-winning service and cuisine aboard the most advanced ships in Europe today.”


In the guide, which will be released in the U.S. in June, Ward praised AmaWaterways for its innovation, stating, “AmaWaterways has helped to redefine European river cruising. The company fully owns, operates and markets its own river ships, all of which are new-builds.” Ward also goes into detail saying, “AmaWaterways spends considerably more on high-quality food ingredients and wine and on hotel crew service training than any other river cruise company.”


In addition to earning the top ten spots overall, AmaWaterways’ European fleet secured two additional spots in the top fifteen. Receiving the highest possible accolades in the book were AmaPrima, AmaReina, AmaSerena (pictured above), AmaSonata, AmaVida, AmaVerde, AmaVenita, AmaCerto, AmaBella, AmaLyra, AmaDante, AmaDolce and AmaCello. AmaStella and AmaViola, AmaWaterways’ newest European vessels, joined the fleet this year and have not yet been included in the Berlitz reviews.
