AmaWaterways is set to launch the ‘biggest river cruise vessel’ in Europe in 2019, which will be able to accommodate 194 passengers.
The ship’s official itinerary will be released at the end of May but plans are in place for the AmaMagna to sail the River Danube – Europe’s second-longest.
Already boasting 20 ships, AmaWaterways is expected to launch another five by 2019, including the AmaMagna, which will be twice as wide as a standard river cruise vessel.
The company runs cruises around the globe to destinations across Africa, Asia and Europe, and has a partnership with APT to charter the luxury expeditions.
The AmaMagna will have a range of dining options on board, including an al fresco glass-enclosed restaurant, as well as an open-water sports platform, with recreational equipment and canoes.
Other amenities on the ship include a large heated swimming pool with a sky bar and whirlpool, spa area with new treatments, and a multi-functional fitness room.
Construction began on the vessel in March this year, and it will feature 97 staterooms when complete, many of which will be over 300 square feet.
President of AmaWaterways, Rudi Schreiner, said: “As the luxury river cruise market continues to grow, we want to carry on as the leader in industry innovation.”
The ship’s design had been in the planning stage for some time, but it was only given the go-ahead at the start of 2017.
“AmaMagna will provide guests with generous personal space, the freedom of multiple dining choices and exceptional stateroom comfort,” added Mr Schreiner.
“Combining this with our award-winning cuisine, noteworthy shore excursions and remarkable onboard service, we feel this ship is a game-changer.”
