Joanne Weir Testimonial
AmaWaterways proudly welcomed James Beard Award-winning cookbook author, international cooking teacher and renowned chef Joanne Weir on our Enchanting Rhine itinerary. See why she describes an AmaWaterways river cruise as a magical experience.
Introducing the Incomparable AmaMagna
The AmaMagna would not exist as she does today without the expertise of hundreds of construction workers, electricians, engineers, and other professional tradesman who put forth their passion and skill to create this complex feat of engineering. Watch how, in a meticulously coordinated months-long process, the extraordinary AmaMagna came to fruition in Serbia’s Vahali shipyard.
Journey from Romania to The Netherlands
The extraordinary new AmaMagna has such grand dimensions that she could not sail narrow waterways to get from the shipyard in Serbia to her temporary home in Rotterdam—so she took an epic ocean voyage! Now in Rotterdam, AmaMagna is receiving the finishing design touches in such venues as her expansive Zen Wellness Studio and Jimmy’s Wine Bar Restaurant.
