AmaWaterways To Reposition Ship To Rhone River

Award-winning river cruise line AmaWaterways has announced it will reposition the 148-passenger ms AmaDagio to the Rhone River in Southern France, replacing the older ms Swiss Pearl. The ship will operate 7-night voyages between Arles and Lyon in late March 2012, as part of a larger 15-day Provence & Spain itinerary that includes 3 nights in Barcelona and Paris, as well as a visit to the medieval town of Perpignan.


Sailing along the Rhone River, ms AmaDagio will visit Avignon, Tournon, Trevoux, Vienne and Viviers enroute. Guests will be able to embark on a selection of shore excursions that include visits to the wineries of France’s Beaujolais wine country, Roman ruins and walking tours of medieval villages to take in the food, wine and culture of the region.


Launched in 2006 and one of several custom-built river cruisers for AmaWaterways, the ms AmaDagio is designed for comfort, convenience and luxury. Exquisitely decorated staterooms and suites feature all the amenities of a luxury hotel with 82 percent incorporating a large French balcony, while gourmet dining is accompanied by top class service at the onboard restaurant. A generously designed wellness area and well-maintained bicycles ensure guests are kept occupied on and off the vessel.


Since its founding in 2002, AmaWaterways has redefined river cruising in Europe with the fastest-growing and youngest fleet cruising the continent’s legendary rivers (Danube, Main, Mosel and Rhine). The line also offers destination cruises in Portugal’s breathtaking Porto River Valley, France’s Rhone River, Russia’s Volga-Baltic Waterways, Lake Ladoga and Lake Onega, as well as explorations of Southeast Asia’s Mekong River.
