As we cruise along storied waterways and immerse ourselves in
culture throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and South America, it is
of utmost importance to us that we not only support the local
communities, but that we also minimize our impact on the
environment and the precious natural ecosystems we sail through.
Here are a few of the ways we are accomplishing our mission of
making a positive impact on the world.
In early 2020, our award-winning
became the first river cruise ship in the industry to be
honored with the prestigious Green Award* certification for
industry-leading safety, quality and environmental
performance. Soon after, 19 additional ships in our European
fleet were also recognized. To earn this award, our river
cruise ships were evaluated on the environmental impact of
such things as our engines, fuel consumption, waste and
maintenance, pollution prevention.
Our river cruise fleet has been thoughtfully designed with
eco-friendly elements. These include energy-saving LED lights,
special insulated windows that reduce energy needs for heating
and cooling, power locks to plug into a port’s power supply
instead of running generators, solar heating systems, water
treatment plants that provide microfiltration and recycling of
all water used on board. AmaMagna also has an innovative
10-engine configuration designed to reduce fuel consumption
and solar panels have been installed on all stateroom
balconies. In addition, the Zambezi Queen uses a water jet
propulsion system that protects the Chobe riverbed,
water-saving taps and showers, biodegradable detergents and
soaps, and a five-stage water purification plant.
To reduce overall plastic consumption, we use paper straws
(upon request), refillable glass water bottles in all
staterooms, and hand out biodegradable tetra-pak water
containers for excursions across the fleet (where available).
We have lessened unnecessary food waste from large-scale
buffets by serving a la carte lunches on board our European
fleet. For our personal audio devices used on excursions, we
are proud to partner with Quietvox, which utilizes
biodegradable rice paper bags and rechargeable batteries. In
addition, our luggage tags and handy travel wallets are both
made from 100% recycled plastic bottle material and are now
delivered to guest staterooms on board our ships in Europe,
reducing our carbon footprint. The usage of our innovative
myAmaCruise app and electronic travel documents has also
significantly reduced paper consumption both pre-cruise and on
