New Cruises On The Revolutionary AmaMagna
Only 12-months after her launch, the AmaMagna will cruise new waters, heading to the lower Danube for four departures. The innovative ship will cruise the seven-night Gems of Southeast Europe itinerary between Budapest, Hungary and Giurgiu, Romania. The itinerary passes through Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania with stops at Belogradchik Rocks and the UNESCO-designated Rock-Hewn Churches of Ivanovo.
Additionally, AmaMagna will join other ships in the fleet in offering the 14-night Grand Danube Cruise, between Vilshofen, Germany and Giurgui, Romania travelling to seven countries and offering scenic views through the Iron Gates between Serbia and Romania.
Stuart Perl, Managing Director commented “We are thrilled to be able to offer our guests even more choice for 2020. Our goal is to consistently offer the best range of cruises on offer and I have no doubt that the new additions will prove popular. The new product will of course be under-pinned by our unparalleled service, award winning fine dining, luxury accommodation and continued focus on offering wellness activities both on-board and on shore.”
Measuring twice the width of a traditional European river cruise ship, the luxurious AmaMagna allows for added personal space in the large suites, four tempting dining venues, including the Al Fresco Restaurant, Jimmy’s Wine Bar Restaurant, The Chef’s Table Restaurant and Main Restaurant; and new enticing amenities, such as the expansive Zen Wellness Studio and the innovative Water Sports Platform complete with the Sundowner vessel for complimentary tours of the Danube.

Prices for the new AmaMagna itineraries start from £2,754 per person for the 10 May 2020 Gems of Southeast Europe cruise from Budapest to Giurgiu.
