After completing a college research expedition in Nepal, Rudi ventured to Peru, where, in 1975, he built a raft and set sail along the Amazon River. Meanwhile, our Executive Vice President, Kristin Karst, was discovering the magic of travel in her hometown of Dresden, Germany, sailing with her family along the Elbe River. A thousand miles away, our beloved late Co-Founder Jimmy Murphy was realising his passions for people and travel in Ireland, planting the seeds for his future career. Little did they all know they would one day lay down roots in the United States and follow the rivers back to Europe. With roots throughout Europe and along distinctive Austrian and German waterways, a passion for river cruising is a part of our very DNA. OUR HERITAGE ON THE RIVER
1975 - Amazon River, Peru OUR STORY CONTINUES From our earliest memories in Europe, to our first itineraries on the Danube River, to our fleet of 26 ships sailing 16 unique waterways through Europe, Asia, Africa and soon South America, we look forward to sharing our heritage and showing you the world – one river at a time. THE BIRTH OF A FAMILY In 1992, the Rhine-Main-Danube Canal was completed and Rudi’s visionary leadership later earned him the industry title of the “Godfather of River Cruising.” Twenty years later, Rudi joined forces with Kristin, who had emerged as a leader in river cruising, and Jimmy, the owner of Brendan Tours, to start their own California-based company: Amadeus, soon to be known as AmaWaterways. A DREAM WAS BORN In 2006, we launched our first fully-owned and operated ship, the AmaDagio – designed by Rudi – on the Danube River. “It was the realisation of a lifelong dream to build my own river ship,” said Rudi. A LASTING LEGACY After helping fulfill the dreams of tens of thousands of guests, Jimmy passed away in 2014. Staff unanimously decided to name one of AmaMagna's new dining venues – Jimmy’s Wine Bar & Restaurant – in his memory. Today, our Co-Owner Gary Murphy carries on his father Jimmy’s legacy and warmth of spirit. AmaWaterways.eu | 5
