AmaWaterways today announced that the company’s popular Wellness Program – tested earlier this year onboard AmaLyra – will be expanding to six ships in 2018. The first in the river cruising industry to offer bicycles onboard, 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.
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.
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.
