AmaWaterways co-owners Rudi Schreiner and Kristin Karst will be hosting two founder's cruises on the Danube this November. 

Schreiner, the company's president, will be hosting a seven-night Danube cruise on Nov. 17, and Karst, who is executive vice president of AmaWaterways, will be hosting a seven-night Danube cruise on Nov. 18. The two will come together for one evening on each other's ship.

The cruises take place during Thanksgiving week, the official launch of the festive season on AmaWaterways ships. Guests will be hosted to a traditional Thanksgiving meal on cruises during that week. 

During the founder's cruises, guests will have the opportunity to get to know the leaders of AmaWaterways and hear about what's on the horizon for the company. Additionally, Schreiner will tell stories about the early days of river cruising, including about his first river experience, a raft trip along the Amazon, and Karst will discuss her journey moving from her home country of Germany to the U.S.

Both of the founder's cruises will sail AmaWaterways' "Danube Serenade" itinerary, departing from the German city of Nuremberg and visiting towns along the Danube in Germany, the Czech Republic and Austria, before ending in Vienna where the destination's Christmas markets will have just opened.
