Insider Focus: The Incomparable AmaMagna

Posted July 12th, 2018

Exploring Europe by river is one of the hottest trends in travel, but the newest destination on the Danube isn't a port at all — it's an extraordinary new ship — the gorgeous new AmaMagna.

At almost twice the width of traditional European river cruise ships, AmaMagna will romance you as you sail the Danube in style enjoying world-class service, 5-star dining, the finest amenities and truly authentic experiences both on board and on shore.

Debuting in May 2019 but open for booking now, the AmaMagna is designed to elevate river cruising to a whole new level. As the nicest, newest and biggest ship in AmaWaterways’ already exceptional fleet of river cruise vessels, here's why we think the AmaMagna will change how you view river cruising:


River ships are not necessarily known for expansive space, but the AmaMagna’s "double-wide" breadth is ideal for discerning travelers and frequent ocean cruisers who love the added luxury afforded by additional space.

From the ultra-spacious suites – most featuring full balconies – to the generous common areas boasting beautiful panoramic views, the AmaMagna will allow you to stretch out and relax in style anywhere on the ship.


On board AmaMagna, you'll enjoy a variety of dining venues at no additional cost, all featuring exquisite, locally inspired cuisine. Healthy, freshly prepared meals are available throughout the ship, as are flavorful vegetarian and gluten-free dishes.

AmaWaterways is a member of La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, the exclusive international culinary society, so you'll savor fresh, masterfully prepared meals in each venue including the new Al Fresco Restaurant, AmaMagna’s Main Restaurant and The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant—where the kitchen, usually hidden, becomes part of the nightly entertainment.

Insider TipYou won't want to miss having a meal and a glass of wine at Jimmy’s Wine Bar Restaurant, a very special venue named for AmaWaterways’ beloved late co-owner, Jimmy Murphy.


Whether it's enjoying AmaMagna’s expansive Zen Wellness Studio, swimming in the Sun Deck pool, indulging in a spa service or pedaling through fairytale cities with their fleet of complimentary bikes, AmaMagna offers a variety of activities both onboard and on shore to accommodate everyone’s tastes.

For water lovers, you can participate in a new river-bound activity exclusive to AmaMagna. Board a private Sundowner boat accommodating just 14 adventurous guests for an intimate excursion departing from AmaMagna’s groundbreaking Water Sports Platform.


From the moment you step aboard AmaMagna, you’ll be greeted by the warmest and most-welcoming crew on any river. Whether it’s being met with champagne and flowers on arrival, personalized latte art in your morning coffee or an invitation from the Captain to help steer the ship, you can expect unparalleled service aboard the AmaMagna.


AmaMagna has created a one-of-a-kind excursion combining luxury river cruising and world-class golf—a true golf lover's dream! Imagine teeing-off at the very best golf courses in Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary and Slovakia all on one trip. You won't have to worry about making tee times, transportation to and from the course, meals at the turn or even bringing golf balls, as everything is included. Your only decision will be which club to hit next (and what to write on your scorecard.)

Insider TipThe exclusive Concierge Golf Program is available on select Romantic Danube and Melodies of the Danube 7-night cruises aboard the AmaMagna, taking you to some of Europe’s most prestigious golf courses.


AmaMagna will feature four magnificent journeys taking you through the very of heart Europe along the legendary Danube River. Experience the timeless wonder of classic cities such as Prague, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest. Enjoy the flavors of Austria’s renowned Wachau Valley wine region. Explore incredible UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Escape to Europe’s most storied Christmas Markets and celebrate the holiday season in style.

No matter which itinerary you choose, you’ll be dazzled by the incomparable AmaMagna as you're delighted by the iconic Danube.
