AmaWaterways new ship was christened in Vilshofen, Germany, by well-known travel expert Valerie Wilson.

The AmaPrima, a sister ship to the award-winning AmaCerto (2012), is a deluxe164-feet passenger vessel that incorporates such innovative design features as Twin Balconies (an AmaWaterways exclusive) and spacious staterooms that measure up to 350 sq. feet.

The AmaPrima will serve the Dutch and Belgium Waterways and the Danube and Rhine Rivers on 10 itineraries: Tulip Time Cruise ; The Romantic Danube ; Melodies of the Danube ; The Legendary Danube ; Blue Danube Discovery ; Black Sea Voyage ; Magnificent Europe ; Grand Danube Cruise ; Christmas Time Cruise ; and Great Capitals & Vintages of the Danube .

"Almost everyone in Vilshofen played some kind of role in the AmaPrima's christening ceremony today," noted Kristin Karst, AmaWaterways' executive vice president and co-owner. "We couldn't have asked for a more supportive or festive atmosphere, or for a warmer welcome for our godmother, Valerie Wilson. It's been a simply wonderful day for all involved."
