Widest-Ever European River Cruise Ship Coming in 2019

River cruise line AmaWaterways has released details of the innovative design for the company's newest ship, the AmaMagna.

Set to begin plying European waterways in 2019, the ship will be the widest cruising vessel on the continent—in fact, it will be twice as wide as the typical European river ship. 

All that space will allow AmaWaterways to throw a bunch of restaurants on deck as well as the design's most intriguing feature: a first-of-its-kind watersports platform that will give passengers access to canoes, inflatable boats, and other equipment that can be used in the river.

The ship will be able to accommodate up to 194 guests in 97 staterooms, most of which have more than 300 square feet of space. Other features include a sundeck swimming pool, a spa, and a large fitness center.

AmaWaterways president Rudi Schreiner calls the design "a game-changer."
