Video Preview: AmaWaterways’ New AmaMagna


AmaWaterways has released a 3D rendering video preview of its newest luxury river cruise ship, the AmaMagna, which is set to make its debut in May 2019. The video shows off a number of features of the new ship, including a specially designed pop-up elevator that offers access to the ship’s Sun Deck, as well as the way in which the water sports platform opens to reveal the ship’s Sundowner boat and leisure platform. Watch it here:

Although AmaMagna is nearly double the width of traditional river cruise ships, it welcomes only 20 percent more guests, allowing generous personal space with more than half of the 98 staterooms designated as suites measuring between 355 and 710 sq. ft., AmaWaterways said. The suites have full outside balconies, open seating areas and bathrooms with double sinks and walk-in showers. Six Grand Suites (474 sq. ft.) and an Owner’s Suite (710 sq. ft.) also have separate seating areas and sizable bathrooms with spa-like bathtubs.

AmaMagna has four dining venues. In addition to the Main Restaurant and The Chef’s Table Restaurant, guests can also choose to dine in the Al Fresco Restaurant or Jimmy’s Wine Bar Restaurant (named in honor of the late Jimmy Murphy, one of AmaWaterways’ original co-founders).

The ship will also provide enhanced entertainment offerings and onboard amenities, including the Zen Wellness Studio, which has a large exercise area offering group classes focused on stretching, cardio and core strengthening led by a professionally trained Wellness Host;  a juice bar and two massage rooms, along with manicure, pedicure and hair services;  a sun deck with a large heated pool, relaxing whirlpool and pop-up sky bar, as well as a Water Sports Platform at the rear of the ship, where complimentary tours will be offered on the Sundowner vessel.

Exclusive to AmaMagna, guests may take advantage of the new Concierge Golf Program, providing the opportunity to experience four top-level golf courses in Hungary, Slovakia, Austria and Germany. AmaMagna’s itineraries include Romantic Danube, Melodies of the Danube and Christmas Markets on the Danube.
