Following the launch of the 162-passenger Amabella next May, AMA Waterways plans to launch a sister ship, the Amaverde, later in 2011 at an undetermined date.
Both ships will primarily be chartered for the Australian market, but departures for the North American market will be available October through December 2011.
Just like the Amabella, the Amaverde will feature staterooms averaging 214 square feet and balconies, multiple dining venues (including a restaurant that seats just 24 and has its own private chef), a library and a swimming pool. There will also be room service for select cabin categories.
The vessels will also feature AMA's new infotainment system, offering complimentary high-speed Internet access, complimentary first-run movies and classic films.
All AMA vessels have complimentary Wi-Fi throughout; French balconies; complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks with dinner; and a fleet of bicycles onboard.
The Amabella will be AMA’s eighth company-owned ship in Europe. AMA also charters ships in France, Portugal, Russia and on the Mekong River in Southeast Asia.
