Open Jaw

AmaWaterways has launched its 2019 Europe, Asia & Africa Extensive brochure, which features the addition of three new ships, more than 60 wine cruises, enhanced wellness activities, and a new Exclusive Concierge Golf Program for AmaMagna guests.

“We are so excited to introduce some incredible new ships, amenities and programs in 2019, providing even more opportunities for our guests to personalize their river cruise vacation,” said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-owner of AmaWaterways. “All our teams on board are whole-heartedly dedicated to the complete happiness of our guests and are committed to providing the most authentic and luxurious river cruise experience available today.”

The AmaMagna

In 2019, AmaWaterways will add three ships to its European fleet: AmaDouroAmaMagna and AmaMora. The AmaMagna will begin sailing the Danube river in MAY 2019. At nearly twice the width of traditional European river cruise ships, the ship features generous personal space, expansive suites (most over 355 sq. ft.), enhanced dining options, and more activities such as a Zen Wellness Studio and Water Sports Platform, where complimentary tours will be offered on the Sundowner vessel.  

AmaWaterways’ new Concierge Golf Program, exclusive to AmaMagna, will provide guests with the opportunity to golf at five of Europe’s most prestigious courses in Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic during their cruise. The program is available on both the Romantic Danube and Melodies of the Danube itineraries from May to mid-October.  

Expanding the company’s presence in Portugal, AmaDouro, which will accommodate 102 guests, has been designed to showcase the UNESCO-designated Douro River Valley where she will join sister ship AmaVida. In addition, the 156-guest AmaMora, sister ship to AmaLea and AmaKristina, will sail itineraries on the Rhine.

Also new for 2019, AmaWaterways’s Wellness Program has now been expanded to feature on all European ships (excluding Douro River cruises). Led by professionally trained Wellness Hosts, guests can join group exercise activities complemented by healthy eating options and relaxation techniques taught on board.

Additionally, AmaWaterways will offer more than 60 hosted Wine Cruises that feature North American Wine Hosts. Onboard wine tasting and discussions, plus specialty shore excursions to celebrated cellars and wineries, will be available at no additional cost.

The company will also offer an optional pre-cruise land extension for every 2019 cruise. Available in a range of cities such as Amsterdam, Budapest, Lucerne, Munich, Zurich and Reykjavik, the new, included excursions range from tours of Prague and Paris to the Romanian countryside. In addition, AmaWaterways is adding new pre-cruise extensions in Bilbao and San Sebastian, Spain prior to embarkation on its Taste of Bordeaux itinerary, as well as a post-cruise option in Rwanda, Africa, which may be added to each of its five Zambezi Queen itineraries on the Chobe River. The four-night Rwanda extension gives guests the opportunity to experience Kigali and Volcanoes National Park, which is home to Silverback Mountain Gorillas and Golden Monkeys.

“As our future and returning guests begin to make their travel plans for 2019, I can’t help but be excited on their behalf,” said Karst. “With three new ships, new additions on board and on land, we are offering the perfect immersive experience, customizable to deliver exactly what each guest is looking for in their vacation.”
