Introducing the AmaMagna, AmaWaterways new ship for 2019

There’s a new revolutionary ship that will be sailing the Danube river in 2019.  AmaWaterways is debuting the extraordinary AmaMagna.  AmaWaterways recently released some new pictures of the river ship that will be sailing the European rivers and they look magnificent!

The new river ship is almost twice as wide as a traditional ship.  With a ship almost two times the size you’d expect twice the number of guests, but that is not the case on the AmaMagna.  There will be only about 20% more guests.  The extra space will go towards larger staterooms and more space in public areas of the ship.

The rooms will be super spacious measuring between 355 to 710 sq. ft. and have full sized balconies.  AmaMagna also has larger bathroom, many with double sinks and deluxe walk-in showers.

The AmaMagna will include multiple dining venues.  Along with the Main Restaurant, there will be 3 others to choose from:

  • The Chef’s Table Restaurant
  • Al Fresco Restaurant
  • Jimmy’s Wine Bar Restaurant – named after Jimmy Murphy, one of the original founders of AmaWaterways.

AmaWaterways will introduce a new Concierge Golf Program, this program will allow guests to book tee times at four top golf courses in Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, and Germany.

There will be a variety of activities on board:

  • Swimming pool on the sun deck
  • A whirlpool to relax in
  • A fitness center and Wellness Studio
  • A water sports platform at the back of the ship.
  • Fleet of complimentary bikes on board
  • Of course, you’ll have a hair salon and 2 spas on board.

The AmaMagna will sail on the Danube river throughout the year on the following itineraries:

  • Melodies of the Danube
  • Romantic Danube
  • Christmas Markets on the Danube
  • And wine themed cruises

Since this is a new ship and one that is extraordinary, sailings on the AmaMagna in 2019 are selling out fast.

If you have any questions about the ship or the itineraries, please feel free to call us or send a question here.
