Today, May 12th, AmaWaterways announced plans for AmaMagna, their biggest ship ever, to be launched in 2019. AmaMagna represents a new concept specifically designed to elevate the modern luxury market. Twice the width of traditional European river ships, the latest AmaWaterways innovation welcomes 194 guests and affords living spaces, multiple dining options including an al fresco glass-enclosed restaurant, more onboard activities and evening entertainment. The ship will debut a quieter and more fuel-efficient engine and – a first for river cruising – open-water sports platform, complete with zodiac boats, canoes and recreational equipment. Construction for the new vessel, destined to sail Danube itineraries, began March 6, 2017.
“As the luxury river cruise market continues to grow, we want to carry on as the leader in industry innovation. While this new double-width concept has been on the table for some time, we believe, given the unique demand that exists, that now is the perfect moment to introduce this style of ship,” said Rudi Schreiner, president and co-owner of AmaWaterways. “AmaMagna will provide guests with generous personal space, the freedom of multiple dining choices and exceptional stateroom comfort. Combining this with our award-winning cuisine, noteworthy shore excursions and remarkable onboard service, we feel this ship is a game-changer.”
In total, AmaMagna will feature 97 staterooms, the majority of which will be over 300 square feet. Additional amenities include a heated sundeck swimming pool with whirlpool and sky bar, a spa area with new treatments, a fitness room large enough for small group classes and common areas designed to accommodate a variety of onboard events.
“We’ve expanded the options for our guests by incorporating exceptional epicurean adventures, and new wellness offerings. Our guests deserve the very best and we are always thinking about new opportunities that will give them the vacation of a lifetime,” said Schreiner. “Now is the perfect time for us to introduce a new concept of luxurious European river cruising.”
