Last evening we had the opportunity to learn much about the river cruise industry with a visit to AmaWaterways whose headquarters is located in Calabasas. This company has taken river cruising to new levels with custom built ships and the best culinary reputation
Calabasas is our next door neighbor since we live in the west San Fernando valley but we were unaware of it being the headquarters for AmaWaterways which offers river cruises in Europe, Africa. Cambodia-Vietnam and Myanmar
We learned about what Ama has to offer with a briefing by Rudi Schreiner, president and Co-Owner. His wife, Kristin Karst, Executive Vice President and Co-Owner was our guide as we viewed the work areas and facilities at Calabasas.
One of the things that has brought fame to Ama has been its emphasis on culinary and wine experiences on its cruises and in fact offers wine cruises in Europe. It has also been recognized for its culinary excellence by the La Chaine des Rotisseurs, a world culinary organization.
For us it offered a new prospectus on river cruising and what it can offer the traveler.
AmaWaterways is located at 26010 Mureau Road in Calabasas. To learn more about the cruises check out the web at www.amawaterways.com.
