Fodor’s Expert Review
Named after Kristin Karst, AmaWaterways co-founder and executive vice president, AmaKristina launched in 2017. Accommodating 156 guests and cruising the Rhône River between Lyon and Avignon, she is the only-twin balcony ship in France. This floating boutique hotel is filled with natural light from the large floor-to-ceiling windows in the public spaces and guest accommodations. Combined with ample outdoor spaces, this provides plenty of opportunities to enjoy panoramic views of the French countryside.Read More
Each ship in the AmaWaterways’ fleet is designed with a unique set of colors and patterns that show up in the fabrics and furnishings. AmaKristina’s palette is a mix of rich chocolate brown intertwined with pops of coral, teal, and gold.
AmaKristina has four decks, including the spacious Sundeck on the top level with a heated pool and swim-up bar, an abundance of lounge chairs in the sun, and under a shaded canopy, plus several comfortable couches which provide a perfect perch for gathering outdoors with other passengers. The lower three decks are a mix of staterooms and public spaces where you will find the main lounge and bar, an observation lounge, a restaurant, and a small gift shop. A fitness center along with a hair and massage salon can be found on the lowest level.
