AmaWaterways expanding onboard Wellness Program in 2018

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

AmaWaterways wellness onboardAmaWaterways’s popular Wellness Program – tested earlier this year onboard AmaLyra – will be expanding to six ships in 2018. AmaWaterways continues its leadership in active cruising through its new Wellness Program, which includes morning stretches, jogging, yoga, cardio/core strengthening, resistance band workouts and circuit training. Activities are complemented by discussion groups with a focus on healthy eating and relaxation techniques.

“Staying active has always been an important part of my lifestyle and it has become essential to so many of our guests, as well, who are looking for ways to remain healthy during their travels,” said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-owner of AmaWaterways. “We have seen an increasing demand for healthy, active options and we’re excited to be able to offer our new program on six of our 20 ships next year.”

Led by AmaWaterways’ Wellness Hosts, the Wellness Program will be added to AmaCerto, AmaPrima, AmaSonata, AmaDante and AmaDolce. AmaLyra will remain a host of the program, as well. Guests booking a sailing that offers the Wellness Program are encouraged to pack a bathing suit, comfortable exercise clothes and appropriate shoes. All exercise equipment will be provided on board along with bikes, helmets and Nordic walking sticks.

In addition to the Wellness Program, AmaWaterways continues incorporating healthy food options into breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guests have access to hydration stations, breakfast vitamin shots, fresh fish, cage-free eggs and crate-free pork along with gluten-free, low-sodium and vegetarian options. “We now offer plenty of ways for our guests to burn off those extra calories, but we know many of our guests simply enjoy adding some healthier options to balance their meals,” continued Karst. “Whether enjoying a hearty Goulash when sailing in Germany or opting for a lighter, tasty vegetarian meal, our guests will take great satisfaction knowing that the choice is theirs.”

Separate from the Wellness Program, AmaWaterways’ European ships provide complimentary bicycles available for independent use or as part of guided excursions, as well as hiking excursions. Each ship in the award-winning European fleet is equipped with a massage room, fitness room with a treadmill, stationary bike, elliptical and more, whirlpool or swimming pool and a walking track – showcasing AmaWaterways’ passion and commitment for maintaining a healthy lifestyle when away from home.
