There were few bigger winners in the cruise industry at the 2019 Travvy Awards than AmaWaterways.

In total, AmaWaterways earned gold Travvy Awards in four Best River Cruise Line categories, including Overall, Asia, Europe and Africa/Egypt. The cruise line also won the gold statuette for the Best Cruise Ship with the AmaLea.

“We are incredibly honored to be recognized by travel professionals who contribute so much to our success as a company,” AmaWaterways executive vice president and co-owner Kristin Karst told TravelPulse.

“Receiving these five gold awards that were voted on by more than 130,000 travel advisors is such a reward for our entire team who work together to ensure our guests have a memorable vacation,” Karst continued. “This is an exciting start to a record-breaking year for AmaWaterways, and we look forward to continuing the momentum throughout 2019!”

As part of the annual ceremony Wednesday in New York City, AmaWaterways co-owners Rudi Schreiner and Kristin Karst were on hand to receive the company’s five gold Travvy Awards.
