During his last Farewell Dinner on board MS AmaViola we organized a surprise for Captain Achim Miertschin. After more than 10 years sailing as 1st Captain, Achim will enjoy his well-deserved retirement. We appreciated him as part of our organisation very much. On behalf the entire Rivertech team and all nautical crew we wish him all the best for the future!

''Vote for AmaWaterways Best River Cruise Line Many of the staterooms in AmaWaterways’ fleet of river ships feature a French balcony and a full outside balcony, providing guests stellar views of the passing scenery. Joined by no more than 163 fellow passengers, guests find plenty of room on board to spread out and relax. Shore excursions are included in the fare, and in many ports of call, guests can choose from several options. A fleet of complimentary bicycles on board allows guests to explore destinations in a more active, leisurely way.''

AmaWaterways announced that they will come with a new river ship in 2019! This will be the biggest ship on the Danube!
The name: AmaMagna. The ship will have the same length, height and depth as the other ships of AmaWaterways. However, the ship will be twice as wide, so there van be larger cabins. The AmaMagna will have capacity for 194 passengers. The ship will be the largest river cruise ship in Europe.
On Wednesday the 10th of May the AmaKristina was christened in Lahnstein!
