Like her award-winning sister ships, AmaMora (2019), AmaLea (2018) and AmaKristina (2017), AmaSiena will feature connecting staterooms, generous personal space, luxury amenities and a variety of dining choices such as AmaWaterways’ signature regionally-inspired cuisine in the Main Restaurant and the wine paired tasting menu in The Chef’s Table Restaurant.
“The popularity of river cruising continues to rise, and with the introduction of AmaSiena, we’re happy to be bringing more of our brand of personalized, luxury river cruising to our guests,” said

AmaSiena will feature 78 staterooms, the majority with AmaWaterways’ exclusive twin balconies – offering panoramic views from both a French and outside balcony. She also has four suites (350 sq. ft.), six pairs of connecting staterooms and 12 triple occupancy staterooms designed for multi-generational families. Additional amenities include a heated Sun Deck swimming pool with a swim-up bar, invigorating classes led by a trained Wellness Host, a fitness room, a fleet of bicycles and massage and beauty salon services. Guests also can enjoy complimentary Entertainment-On-Demand, high-speed Wi-Fi, and “Sip & Sail” happy hour.
“We are excited to have a beautiful new ship like AmaSiena with many cruises through one of my personal favorite areas along the Moselle river,” said Kristin Karst, the company’s executive vice president and co-founder. “AmaSiena will offer the perfect combination that our guests’ treasure – incredible food and wine served up alongside thoughtful tours and active adventures delivered in a relaxed family-like setting. We like to think of it as healthy indulgence delivered with a genuine smile allowing travelers of all ages to create long-lasting vacation memories.”
When she debuts in July 2020, AmaSiena will sail a wide variety of popular itineraries, but highlights include the 10-night Rhine & Moselle Delights and 11-night Rhine & Moselle Fairytales between Amsterdam and Basel which allow guests extended time to explore the Middle Age castles and spectacular vineyards that line the banks of the Moselle river.
