AmaWaterways on Wednesday unveiled the very first renderings of its newest ship, AmaMagna, scheduled to debut in May 2019. The ship is one of three new vessels coming to the river cruise line next year—the other two are AmaDouro and AmaMora.

AmaMagna is scheduled to be almost twice the length of traditional river cruise ships, though it will only welcome 20 percent more guests than normal, giving each guest more space both in and outside of their cabins.

“We believe that now is the perfect moment to introduce this very special ship,” said Rudi Schreiner, president and co-owner of AmaWaterways. “With more personal space, the freedom of multiple dining venues and exceptional accommodations, AmaMagna has been designed for those seeking a fresh, contemporary and dynamic take on river cruising as well as ocean cruisers accustomed to the luxury of more.”

More than half of its 98 staterooms will be designed as suites, all featuring full outside balconies, open seating areas, and bathrooms with double-sinks and walk-in showers. Six of those suites will fall under AmaWaterways’ Grand Suite category (474-square-feet) and one will be an Owner’s Suite (710-square-feet) that includes a separate seating area and bathrooms with a spa-like tub.

For dining, AmaMagna will offer three different venues aside from its main dining room—The Chef’s Table Restaurant, a staple of other AmaWaterways ships; Al Fresco Restaurant; and Jimmy’s Wine Bar Restaurant, which was named in honor of Jimmy Murphy, the legendary tour operator who was an original founder of AmaWaterways.

AmaMagna will offer four total restaurants onboard.

AmaMagna will also debut with a new Concierge Golf Program, a first for AmaWaterways. The program will allow guests to book tee times at four top-level golf courses in Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, and Germany.

Other features will include Ama’s Zen Wellness Studio, a sun deck with a heated pool and whirlpool, and a water sports platform at the back of the ship, which will offer access to the ship’s Sundowner.
