AmaWaterways released new renderings of their upcoming ship AmaMagna. Debuting in May 2019, the vessel will be in a class of its own. AmaWaterways AmaMagna will feature the most personal space per passenger of any ship sailing the rivers.
Double the width of most river ships, AmaWaterways AmaMagna will only carry 20 percent more guests. Over half of the staterooms will be suites between 355 and 710 square feet, and feature full outside balconies, seating areas, double sinks, and walk-in showers. Regular cabins, six grand suites, and an owner’s suite round out the accommodations.
Dining aboard AmaMagna
When it comes to dining, guests will have four unique venues to choose. In addition to the Main Restaurant and Chef’s Table will be the Al Fresco Restaurant or Jimmy’s Wine Bar Restaurant, which was named in honor of the late Jimmy Murphy, one of AmaWaterways co-founders.
“My father truly enjoyed sharing a glass of wine with friends; in fact, a favorite photo in my office shows Rudi, Kristin, my father and me together at a winery, all with joyous smiles on our faces,” said Gary Murphy, vice-president of sales. “Selecting ‘Jimmy’s’ as the official name of the new wine bar restaurant, brought a great deal of joy to the entire Murphy family, but particularly to my mother who said, ‘your father would be very happy with that; he loved those ships, and now he has his own spot on a very special one’.”
For fitness enthusiasts, amenities onboard will include the large Zen Wellness Studio, complete with an exercise area for group classes, a juice bar, and two massage rooms along with manicure, pedicure, and hair services. Also, a sun deck with heated pool, whirlpool, pop-up sky bar, and water sports platform for included tours at the rear of the ship round out the offerings.
Exclusive to AmaMagna is the new Concierge Golf Program, giving travelers the chance to experience four top-level golf courses in Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, and Germany. The ship’s itinerary includes Romantic Danube, Melodies of the Danube, and Christmas Markets on the Danube.
