Review of AmaMagna

By length, this is Europe's absolute largest river cruise ship - having twice the width of a standard/traditional for Europe riverboat and surpassing even the Soviet-era Russian passenger ships on Volga River. Still, Europe's widest riverboat remains Crystal Cruises' double-hull designed vessel Mozart, which has width 23 m (75 ft) and LOA length 120 m (394 ft).
