The Magna is Mega!

Here's 7 Things to Love

Ama's groundbreaking flagship, AmaMagna, is twice the width of traditional European river ships, offering the luxury of enhanced personal space, four unique dining venues, and a variety of leisure opportunities as you sail along the legendary Danube River.

Here are seven reasons why RiverCruiseKing.com guests love their award-winning AmaMagna!

1. The Suite Life Measuring from 355 to 710 square feet with full balconies, the suites aboard Ama's one-of-a-kind AmaMagna comprise more than 50% of the ship’s staterooms and are some of the largest accommodations on the river. Plus, with special included amenities such as a welcome gift with champagne and complimentary laundry, you’ll love the “suite life” on board. Get a glimpse of Ama's spacious suites with a 360° tour and join Godmother Samantha Brown on a video tour as she shows off the ship’s staterooms and more.


2. Four Unique Dining Venues You’ll always enjoy impeccable table service and exquisite multi-course meals across Ama's fleet as well as within AmaMagna’s Main Restaurant and The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant—where the usually hidden kitchen becomes part of the entertainment. However, only on AmaMagna can you savor fresh, masterfully prepared vegetable-forward cuisine within the new Al Fresco Restaurant. With retractable windows and roof, this popular new restaurant treats you to refreshing breezes and views of the ever-changing Danube. And, exclusive to AmaMagna, Jimmy’s Restaurant, named for AmaWaterways’ beloved late co-owner, Jimmy Murphy, offers a fun, convivial family atmosphere. All of these dining venues are included in the price of your cruise. So, go ahead—indulge!

3. A Focus on Wellness

AmaMagna’s expansive Zen Wellness Studio offers you the opportunity to participate in complimentary small-group classes focused on stretching, cardio and circuit training led by a professionally trained Wellness Host. You can also spin with a view on outdoor spin bikes exclusive to the AmaMagna; sip refreshing, infused detox waters at the juice bar; stop in one of two spas; or get a manicure and pedicure for a gentler approach to wellness.


4. Innovation With design details that enhance space, sunlight, fresh air and sustainability, AmaMagna is Ama's most innovative ship to date and her groundbreaking amenities and entertainment accommodate every kind of traveler. Whether you prefer to watch a movie or pass your time playing video games, the chic onboard cinema is a perfect place to spend a relaxing evening. To provide equal opportunities for guests of all ages, the ship’s complimentary bicycles include our fleet’s first child-size bikes. AmaMagna also ensures accessibility for all guests with its innovative glass elevator that reaches all the way up to the Sun Deck, where both a refreshing pool and whirlpool, as well as a walking track and pop-up sky bar, await your arrival.



5. A Pledge of Sustainability AmaWaterways is committed to minimizing their impact on the environment and protecting the precious natural ecosystems we all sail through. In addition to such features as solar heating systems and energy-saving LED lights found on their other ships, AmaMagna takes sustainability to the next level with an innovative 10-engine configuration that reduces fuel consumption by up to 20%. Biodegradable tetra-pak water containers are also distributed on board to guests to replace plastic water bottles during our included shore excursions.

6. Exclusive Concierge Golf Program AmaWaterways has created a match made in heaven—luxury river cruising and golf. Ama's exclusive Concierge Golf Program is available on select Magna on the Danube itineraries aboard the AmaMagna, taking you to some of Europe’s most prestigious golf courses such as the Diamond Course at the Diamond Country Club just outside of Vienna, Austria – host of the Lyoness Open. This exclusive program includes one round per golfer at each golf course, private luxury Mercedes transportation to and from the courses, concierge service including club care and cleaning and more.

7. Unparalleled Service From the moment you step aboard AmaMagna, you’ll be greeted by her warm and welcoming crew who always go above and beyond to ensure you have a wonderful experience. Whether it’s a special anniversary cake made by Ama's talented pastry chef or your morning coffee delivered to your table just the way you like it (without having to ask), these are just a few of the gestures you can expect when you sail aboard AmaMagna on Ama's Magna on the Danube, Gems of Southeast Europe or Grand Danube itineraries.
