Watersports platform, well-being studio and ultra-spacious accommodation

Guildford, UK - (May. 14, 2018) - At nearly twice the width of traditional European river ships, AmaMagna is a revolutionary new vessel offering a watersports platform, choice of four restaurants, wellness studio and ultra-spacious accommodation. This week, AmaWaterways unveiled more details and images highlighting what this incredible ship will offer when she launches in May 2019.

AmaMagna is a distinctive evolution of AmaWaterways’ European river cruise fleet, with a daring design for those seeking a fresh, contemporary and dynamic take on river cruising, as well as ocean cruisers accustomed to the luxury of choice. Among the facilities on offer are:

More personal space for her 196 guests

Despite being double the width (and the same length) of other modern river cruise ships, AmaMagna will only accommodate an extra 40 passengers (in comparison to their already spacious fleet), giving those on-board an unprecedented amount of personal space. Guests will be looked after by 70 crew.

She will offer the most spacious and comfortable accommodation on the Danube with 53 suites ranging from an impressive 355 sq. ft. to a luxurious 710 sq. ft. - all offering full-width step out balconies. Each one will include a sizable marble bathroom, many boasting double sinks as well as a deluxe walk-in multi-jet shower and separate bath.

There are an additional 34 Staterooms at 252 sq. ft. with full balcony and 11 Staterooms at 205 sq. ft. with large fixed windows .

Fine dining at a choice of four restaurants

Fine dining remains a key part of the AmaWaterways’ experience and the AmaMagna is no different. All AmaWaterways’ ships currently offer a choice between the main restaurant and speciality ‘Chef’s Table’ where guests can watch a multi-course taster menu being prepared. The new ship will offer two additional options for those seeking even more variety:

‘Al Fresco’ will accommodate up to 35 diners. Located at the front of the ship and with retractable windows, the restaurant is expected to be a sought after dining option, whatever the weather.

‘Jimmy’s Wine Bar Restaurant’ has been named after the late Mr. Murphy, one of AmaWaterways’ co-founders. Wine connoisseurs will revel in the ambiance of this unique space where 65 guests can indulge in delicious cuisine paired with complimentary fine wines at high-top tables and in private wine rooms.

Fine dining will be offered in all the restaurants at no additional charge, with complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks also served at meal times.

Unique water sports platform taking guests even closer to the Danube

The AmaMagna will be the first river cruise ship to feature a water sports platform, complete with a Sundowner vessel offering a range of unique activity and excursion opportunities - at no extra cost.

A Wellness studio, juice bar and larger beauty salon

AmaWaterways recently introduced Wellness Hosts onto several of its ships and was the first company to offer a fleet of bicycles for use by guests. AmaMagna continues this theme with a large space allocated to health and well-being.

The ‘Zen Wellness studio’ is a new multi-functional Health & Wellness Studio complete with Juice bar and retractable windows, where guests will have the opportunity to participate in group classes focussed on stretching, cardio and circuit training – at no extra charge.

More space has also been made available for salon services. The AmaMagna will offer two massage rooms and as well as hair styling (currently offered on on AmaWaterway’s other ships), guests can treat themselves to a range of additional beauty treatments such as manicures and pedicures.

A relaxing split-level lounge

A larger, split-level lounge will create intimate areas where guests can relax as they watch the world go by.

More outdoor space

A double-width ship, means more space on the top deck. Guests can enjoy a large heated pool, while those looking to unwind will love the whirlpool and access to the pop-up sky bar.

AmaMagna will sail on seven night rotations along the Danube from Vilshofen to Budapest with prices from £1,811 for the Romantic Danube itinerary departing on 17 November 2019.
