Contact your preferred travel advisor to reserve your Danube River cruise aboard AmaMagna – and practice your backhand surrounded by breathtaking landscapes in Germany, Austria, Hungary and beyond – today!



For individual travelers, 30-minute reservations may only be made once on board on a first come, first served basis. The Cruise Manager and/or Wellness Host on board will review reservations to ensure equitable use of the court.

The pickleball court may be reserved in advance of the cruise for select groups; however, timings could be modified once on board dependent on water levels and sailing schedule as advised by the Captain.

A set daily schedule cannot be guaranteed. Open play times will vary by day and season and could be altered based on unexpected changes in weather or schedule.

As there are no lights on the Sun Deck, the pickleball court will only be open during sunlight hours.

Yes, the pickleball court may be open while AmaMagna is sailing – weather permitting and in the absence of passing underneath low bridges. It will also be open when the ship is docked during the daytime, weather permitting.

A maximum of four guests (two teams of two) may play on the court at any given time.
