2018 has been a busy year for AmaWaterways with the spring launch of AmaLea and the finalization of plans to launch three new ships in 2019 including the one-of-kind, AmaMagna. Launching in May 2019 and defining contemporary elegance, AmaMagna features a total of 98 elegantly-appointed staterooms, the majority of which are spacious, full balcony suites measuring between 355 and 710 sq. ft. At twice the width of traditional river cruise ships, she offers various culinary options, including two new dining venues to entice guests: Jimmy’s Wine Bar Restaurant, named for AmaWaterways’ late co-founder Jimmy Murphy, and the Al Fresco Restaurant, with retractable ceiling and side windows for guests to indulge in the views of the picturesque Danube and the towns that dot its shores.

Additional features include a large heated Sun Deck swimming pool; an expansive Zen Wellness Studio with massage, hair and nail salon services; and an innovative Water Sports Platform complete with the Sundowner boat for evening river excursions at no extra charge. Exclusive to AmaMagna, guests may also take advantage of the new Concierge Golf Program, providing the opportunity to experience five top-level golf courses in Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic while enjoying the magic of river cruising.
