The company said this is based on the success of its previous sailings with a Latin touch and growing market interest.
Rhine cruise with special elements
The March 24, 2022, ‘Enchanting Rhine’ departure will be hosted by a bilingual cruise manager, who will deliver briefings in English and Spanish. Additionally, the weeklong sailing from Basel, Switzerland, to Amsterdam will feature a daily tour with a Spanish-speaking guide, daily cruise programs in Spanish, Spanish menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and two evenings of Latin-inspired music to accompany the other on-board entertainment.
‘We want to ensure all our guests feel right at home and provide the most exceptional and memorable river cruise experience possible, always with tailored and personalized touches,’ said Kristin Karst, EVP and co-founder of AmaWaterways. ‘Our Latin touch sailing is the perfect example of this, and we are excited to offer this opportunity to our Spanish-speaking guests.’
The new AmaSiena
Debuting in 2021, the 156-passenger AmaSiena — sister of AmaLea and AmaKristina — will sport AmaWaterways’ signature twin balconies, a Sun Deck walking track, a swim-up bar, a sunny main lounge and a complimentary fleet of bikes.
