Golf enthusiasts will be pleased to hear that AmaWaterways will be debuting its brand-new Exclusive Concierge Golf Program with the launch of AmaMagna next year. The program will give travelers the opportunity to experience five top-level golf courses in Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, Czech Republic and Germany.
In addition to the standard selection of amenities and shore excursions that travelers can enjoy on an AmaWaterways cruise, guests participating in AmaMagna’s Exclusive Concierge Golf Program will receive the following:
- One Welcome Packet, which includes a dozen Titleist Pro V1 golf balls per golfer, one pitch repair tool, course guides and a leather shoe bag
- Concierge service, including club care
- Private luxury Mercedes transfers between the ship and courses
- A la carte lunch at each course with beer and wine included
- One round per golfer at each course
- One shared golf cart per round
- One range token per round
- Club cleaning after each round
As for AmaMagna, it is nearly twice the width of traditional river cruise ships, but welcomes only 20 percent more guests, allowing more space in the 98 staterooms (with more than half totaling at least 355 square feet). Onboard amenities include the Sun Deck with a large heated pool, 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.
Guests on board AmaMagna have the choice of dining venues: The Main Restaurant and The Chef’s Table Restaurant, plus the new Jimmy’s Wine Bar Restaurant and Al Fresco Restaurant. Wellness-wise, the Zen Wellness Studio will have a large exercise area and will offer group classes focused on stretching, cardio and core strengthening led by a professionally trained Wellness Host. There will also be a juice bar and two massage rooms, along with manicure, pedicure and hair services.
Pricing starts at an additional $2,399 per person on the seven-night Romantic Danube and Melodies of the Danube itineraries beginning in May 2019. Note: Czech Republic’s Albatross Golf Course is only available with the purchase of the Prague hotel/land extension. If purchasing the Prague land extension, guests can play the fifth course in Prague for an additional $500 per person (added to the land extension price).
