Calabasas, CA - (Sep. 21, 2017) - AmaWaterways today announced that it has received the top honor of being named Nexion’s Partner of the Year. The company has also been named Best River Cruise Line. The two awards were presented during the annual CoNexion Conference held this week in New Orleans. While AmaWaterways had received top honors in the river cruise category for the past three years, this is the first year that Nexion’s members have recognized AmaWaterways as their top partner across all product categories.

“We are exceptionally honored to receive this top recognition from Nexion members as it is a true testament to the incredible relationships we have developed over the years,” said Gary Murphy, AmaWaterways’ vice president, sales and co-owner. “I am so proud to accept this award on behalf of our entire AmaWaterways family that are in the field with our travel agent partners, in the offices in Calabasas and Basel and on board our 20 magnificent ships.”

“Being named Nexion’s Partner of the Year is so exciting for us as it not only recognizes the hard work of our teams but also shows the importance that river cruising has gained within the leisure travel industry,” said Kristin Karst, AmaWaterways’ executive vice president and co-owner. “We are very proud to receive both these awards and thank all the Nexion members for this recognition.”

These awards come on the heels of several other noteworthy wins for AmaWaterways. Most recently, the company received five Travel Weekly Magellan Awards and was named Best River Cruise Line by both ACTA and NACTA.
