Take note, river cruisers. AmaWaterways has released new renderings of its new river cruise ship, the AmaMagna, including details on the ship’s public spaces, accommodations, multiple dining venues and expansive wellness studio. The new ship is set to debut in May 2019.
The images released showcase the ship’s Main Restaurant, which has a spacious layout with floor-to-ceiling windows offering guests views of the Danube’s riverbanks, as well as a first look at the Water Sports Platform at the rear of the ship.
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 square feet, AmaWaterways said. The suites have full outside balconies, open seating areas and bathrooms with double sinks and walk-in showers. Six Grand Suites (474 square feet) and an Owner’s Suite (710 square feet) 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.
