AmaWaterways Welecomed Amadouro

AmaWaterways recently christened its newest river cruise ship, AmaDouro, with a festive ceremony in Porto, Portugal.

The christening put the final touch on AmaDouro’s inaugural sailing – which began in Porto and returned or the special evening event hosted by AmaWaterways co-founders Rudi Schreiner and Kristin Karst.

Honorary guest, Advantage Travel Partnership chief executive officer and AmaDouro godmother, Julia Lo Bue-Said was joined by respected travel industry partners, international media and other guests for the celebration.

Following a long-standing tradition associated with ship christenings that originates more than 4,000 years ago, a priest blessed the ship and crew, and Captain Pedro Sardo assisted as Godmother Lo Bue-Said broke a champagne bottle against AmaDouro’s hull, signifying good luck on the journeys ahead.
