APT and US partner AmaWaterways will launch its new river ship the AmaMagna in May next year which will be biggest vessel to cruise the Danube.
At 22 meters, the AmaMagna will be twice as wide as the line’s existing river cruise ships and other traditional European vessels. The AmaMagna will sail on the wider stretches of the Danube River.
The added space will allow for larger cabins at 355 sq feet to 474 sq ft with full balconies. The owners suite is at 710 sq ft.
There will also have several restaurants, a new alfresco dining area with retractable windows and outdoor seating and a wine bar. This is in addition to The Chef’s Table and main restaurant. There will also be a heated pool with a whirlpool on the sundeck, a wellness and fitness centre, two spa treatment rooms and a hair salon. There will also be an innovative water sports platform with zodiacs, canoes and a Sundowner boat for intimate water excursions. A fleet of complimentary bikes will be available for guests to explore various destinations on guided bike tours.
Itineraries have been specially designed to discover timeless cities like Prague, Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Vilshofen. There will be a wine cruise to Austria’s renowned Wachau Valley wine region and another itinerary to experience Europe’s famous Christmas Markets.
Seven-night itineraries from Budapest to Vilshofen and vice versa have been scheduled.
The AmaMagna can accommodate 194 guests, with 98 staterooms, 53 suites and 70 crew.
“Imagine staying in a top suite at a luxurious five-star hotel that delivers you to a different, stunning European city or town every day – that’s what sailing on the AmaMagna will be like,” APT group managing director Chris Hall said.
