Godmother of the AmaVida announced

Luxury river-cruise operator AmaWaterways have recently announced who will become godmother and christen their newest ship, the AmaVida - which will launch on March 22.

Popular actress Sharon Stone will serve as the godmother of the new 106-passenger vessel, which is set to sail on a series of voyages through the beautiful Douro River Valley. Stone has starred in a variety of films, including "Basic Instinct" and "Casino" in addition to working with a variety of non-profit charitable organisations around the world.

The tradition of christening a ship originated more than 4,000 years ago. A respected and well-known woman is carefully selected to serve as the new ship's godmother, entrusted with blessing the vessel at a special christening ceremony. The blessing for the safety of the ship's passengers and crew typically concludes with the time-honored ritual of breaking a Champagne bottle against the ship's hull.

The AmaVida features an array of staterooms and suites that measure up to 323 square feet and guests can enjoy free-flowing wines and beers with their evening meals. Located in Portugal, the Douro River Valley has been designated as one of the world's top sustainable destinations and is becoming an ever-popular river-cruise destination.
