Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
CALABASAS — AmaWaterways has just released new images of the AmaMagna, which set sail on its inaugural voyage from Vilshofen, Germany to Budapest, Hungary.
The first-ever photos of this revolutionary new ship showcase the design and décor of the multi-level lounge and main restaurant. They also provide a first look at the new dining venues, the Al Fresco Restaurant and Jimmy’s, named in honour of the late Jimmy Murphy who was one of AmaWaterways’ original co-founders and co-owners.
“The delighted reactions of our guests and travel partners when they embarked on this cruise is genuinely rewarding,” said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-founder. “With the choice of four distinct dining venues, five bars, elegant lounges and exceptional accommodations, 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 vacation.”
AmaMagna welcomes only 20% more guests than traditional river cruise ships, despite being twice the width. More than half of the 98 staterooms are designated as suites measuring between 355 and 710 square feet. The suites feature full outside balconies, open seating areas and bathrooms complete with double sinks and walk-in showers.
The ship also provides: enhanced entertainment offerings with an onboard cinema; a large boutique; a Zen Wellness Studio, complete with a large exercise area offering group classes led by a professionally trained Wellness Host; juice bar; massage rooms, along with manicure, pedicure and hair services; a sun deck with a large heated pool; relaxing whirlpool and a sky bar.
Exclusive to AmaMagna, guests can take advantage of a new Concierge Golf Program that provides them the opportunity to experience four top-level golf courses in Hungary, Slovakia, Austria and Germany.
AmaMagna’s itineraries include ‘Romantic Danube’, ‘Melodies of the Danube’ and ‘Christmas Markets on the Danube’.
