AmaMagna - new details revealed of the largest river ship
At nearly twice the width of traditional European river ships, AmaMagna is a revolutionary new luxury river cruise vessel, offering a watersports platform, choice of four restaurants, wellness studio and ultra-spacious accommodation, and will be the largest river cruise ship when she sets sail on her inaugural voyage in May 2019.
AmaMagna is an evolution of AmaWaterways’ current European river cruise fleet, with a revolutionary design for those seeking a new take on river cruising, as well as ocean cruisers accustomed to the luxury of choice.
Personal Space on AmaMagna
Despite being double the width (and the same length) of other modern river cruise ships, AmaMagna will only accommodate an extra 40 guests (in comparison to their already spacious fleet), giving those on-board an unprecedented amount of personal space. AmaMagna’s 196 guests will be looked after by 70 crew.
Verandah Stateroom on AmaMagna
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.
AmaMagna will also feature a large, split-level lounge that will create an intimate area where guests can relax as they watch the scenery of the Danube go by.
AmaMagna Top Deck
A double-width ship means more space on the top deck. Guests can enjoy a large heated pool, whilst those looking to unwind can indulge in the whirlpool and gain access to a pop-up sky bar.
Dining on board AmaMagna
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. AmaMagna will offer fine dining at a choice of four restaurants, with the new ship offering 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
‘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.
Water sports platform and Sundowner on AmaMagna
Water sports on AmaMagna
The AmaMagna will be the first river cruise ship to feature a water sports platform taking guests even closer to the Danube. The ship will also feature a Sundowner vessel (a small speed boat), offering a range of unique activity and excursion opportunities – all at no extra cost.
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 and guests can treat themselves to a range of additional beauty treatments such as manicures and pedicures.
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. Contact us for details.
