AmaWaterways will add a second double-width ship to its fleet, Kristin Karst, Executive Vice President and Co-Founder of the river cruise operator has said.

The company introduced its first extra-wide vessel, AmaMagna, in mid-2019. The 196-passenger ship is 72 feet (22 metres) wide compared to European fleet-mates which are 38 feet (11.5 metres) wide. While significantly larger in size, AmaMagna only has around 20% more guests than smaller sister-ships.

The new wider vessel is earmarked to launch in 2027.

AmaMagna features four restaurants, a cinema, a wellness studio, a heated pool, whirlpool and sky bar on the Sun Deck, and operates exclusively on the Danube River. It is likely the sister-ship will follow suit.

Speaking at the Travel Leaders Network Edge conference in Washington DC, Karst said the next ‘big ship’ will feature a number of refinements, but did not go into detail at this stage.

A few weeks ago, AmaWaterways announced it would add another two new ships to its fleet in 2026 AmaSofia on the Danube and Rhine, and AmaDara on the Mekong.
