APT and partner company AmaWaterways have also just christened their newest European river ship, the 164-passenger MS AmaSerena, in Germany. It follows the earlier christening of sister ship AmaVenita. In a nod to the growing multi-generational market, the ship features the line’s first-ever connecting staterooms. Guests on board the new ship will also enjoy salon and spa services, multiple dining venues (including The Chef’s Table restaurant), an intimate wine room, fitness room and a heated swimming pool with swim-up bar on the expansive sun deck. AmaSerena will sail on APT’s Royal Collection cruises.

In other news, APT has rolled out its journeys in France for 2016, and there’s plenty that’s new and interesting, including five itineraries from its debut in the Bordeaux region and new combinations that link it to other cruises on the Seine and Rhône rivers or Spanish land journeys. Also new for 2016 is the 21-day ‘Charms of Southern France’ from Paris to Monte Carlo, offering a more in-depth cruise of the Rhône and Saône rivers, which take in the Burgundy and Beaujolais wine regions as well as Provence further south.
