You only celebrate your 50th anniversary once, and travel advisor Myra E. knew she could trust AmaWaterways to deliver something truly special for her and her husband aboard the AmaMagna. But then the wheels started turning. Her friends, the Mitchells, would be celebrating their 49th. Donna and Tommy would be celebrating their 50th. So was her old college suitemate. And then there were the newlyweds and the newly engaged. At that point the idea was unstoppable. Myra got in touch with AmaWaterways and began organizing the ultimate Vow Renewal group.
AmaWaterways’ Vow Renewal Packages not only include a symbolic Renewal of Vows ceremony led by a designated official, but they also offer ways to relax and look one’s best for the big day, with a certificate for two 1-hour massages plus one manicure/pedicure or hair salon service. When Myra’s group embarked, a crew member immediately booked their spa treatments to ensure they were all able to experience these services when they wished.
The Ultimate Vow Renewal
“It was more than I had expected,” Myra said of the package. “They gave everyone two spa treatments and then we had Champagne in our rooms and were given cute little custom-made cakes at dinner. It was unbelievable how wonderful the crew all were to us and how they remembered our names immediately. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience!”
The Hotel Manager even booked all members of the group at the Al Fresco Restaurant and Jimmy’s so the entire group would have a chance to try every restaurant on board. “At The Chef’s Table, they brought our four tables together. At Jimmy’s, we were at two long tables,” Myra recalled. “Our Hotel Manager had reserved the spaces for us so we could all be together. They went overboard for us — it was just fabulous.”
Myra also raved about a surprise guest on board. “There was a man standing next to us with his tea and breakfast plate and he asked to join us. Turns out it was the Co-Founder and President of AmaWaterways, Rudi Schreiner! He was very sweet to sit down with us. We felt really honored and pleased and can’t think of enough good things to say about him.”
A Beautiful Experience All Around
Donna and Tommy Dowling
“AmaWaterways rose to the top. The ceremony was made so special and unforgettable by the sincerity of the Captain, whose words were so carefully prepared and heartfelt. And sharing the experience with our friends, who had also reached this milestone, certainly enhanced our pride and happiness. Special menus prepared in perfect detail, individual cakes decorated beautifully, rose petals on our bed, Champagne in our room, loveliness all around us! AmaMagna was sparkling in cleanliness, efficiency, friendliness, meal preparation, and service. It was a beautiful experience all around.”
