AmaWaterways’ latest ship has set sail on its inaugural voyage on the Danube.
AmaMagna – which is twice the width of traditional river cruise ships – is sailing from Vilshofen to Budapest. The line’s president and co-founder Rudi Schreiner said the ship was a “labour of love for so many people” and paid tribute to the “hard work that was done by the team to bring my dream project to reality”.
AmaMagna features six Grand Suites and an Owner’s Suite and improved public spaces, including a cinema and the Zen Wellness Studio, complete with a large exercise area offering group classes. In addition, the sun deck features a large heated pool, whirlpool and sky bar.
The ship’s itineraries include Romantic Danube, Melodies of the Danube and Christmas Markets on the Danube sailings. Prices start from £1,875pp for a seven-night Romantic Danube cruise from Vilshofen to Budapest, departing 29 December 2019.
“The delighted reactions of our guests and travel partners when they embarked on this cruise is genuinely rewarding,” added the line’s executive vice president and co-founder Kristin Karst. “With the choice of four distinct dining venues, five bars, elegant lounges and exceptional accommodation, AmaMagna has been designed for those seeking a fresh, contemporary and dynamic take on river cruising.
“This beautiful ship has a direct appeal to ocean cruisers who are accustomed to the luxury of expansive personal space and a wide variety of leisure activities during their holiday.”
AmaMagna will be christened by her godmother, Emmy Award-winning television host, Samantha Brown, during a ceremony in Austria on 11 July.
