Life On Board

A river cruise may not be the fastest way to explore Europe, but it is certainly the most beautiful! Prepare to be spoiled by our renowned Austrian hospitality. Our goal is to do our best to ensure that you enjoy an unforgettable and stress-free stay on board our Amadeus ships.

Set your spirit free and unwind while doing exactly as you please! Discover magical, dreamy river landscapes and vibrant world cities, get to know new countries and cultures on our interesting land excursions, or simply relax on the Sun Deck and enjoy the magnificent view of Europe’s most beautiful rivers!

Custom-designed boutique ships

A floating luxury hotel that leaves no wish unfulfilled; wide panoramic windows, spacious magnificence  and timeless elegance – we want you to feel good with us in every possible way. Our top priority in designing our luxurious fleet of ships is to offer you inspiring enjoyment and uncompromising comfort.

Cordial, personal, attentive: our onboard service

We have almost turned our distinctive Austrian hospitality, which underpins all our cruises, into an exclusive trademark. Allow yourself to be thoroughly spoilt by our attentive staff members, who will do their best to serve you with what you want before you’ve even asked for it!

Maritime elegance from bow to stern

Our long-standing company not only manages its own ships, but is also responsible for the planning and building of the ships, which are consequently conceived from the start with a perfect mix of modern elegance and luxurious comfort. This is particularly evident in the public spaces such as the airy Panorama Restaurant, the generous and inviting bar and the pleasant, relaxing Amadeus Club
with its library.

Authentic & Immersive Exploration
Activities on shore

Exciting and fresh excursions

A river cruise offers you what is probably the most comfortable way to discover new countries, cultures and people. You can, for example, enjoy a choice wine tasting in romantic Burgundy, visit vibrant cities like Amsterdam, Cologne or Budapest, take a walk along the Black Sea or visit the Dutch Keukenhof during the tulip season. Whatever you decide, all our excursions are unique and are sure to be unforgettable!

À la carte – or in a well-priced set of excursions

When there's such a healthy variety of available excursions, it can often be difficult to choose between them – so on each cruise we offer up to four tailor-made and carefully composed sets of excursions that you can book in advance at favorable prices. You can, of course, still book all excursions individually, à la carte, as our aim is for you to select the shore programme that suits you and your needs best.

The AMADEUS concierge service

Feel like discovering the regions we travel through on your own? In that case we recommend you take advantage of our exclusive onboard concierge service. Whether you just want to make a dinner reservation on shore, stroll around the shops, get tickets to a museum exhibition or plan a private city tour, our experienced and well-connected concierge is on hand to provide recommendations and assistance at any time during your planning and will always have useful addresses available.

Experienced tour managers: ashore and on board

Our experienced cruise managers on board look forward to acquainting you with the highlights of the last two millennia of European art and culture and providing you with insights into the life and history of the regions through which we travel. Experienced local tour guides also accompany our shore excursions. With their regional expertise and genuine enthusiasm you can be sure they will take you on inspiring voyages of discovery so that you can gain a full appreciation for the region and its culture.

Amadeus Audio-Guides

You will be provided with feather-light, wireless AMADEUS Audio Guides during all of the land excursions. The receiver may be worn on the neck or kept in a pocket. Our practical headphones enable you to hear every word of your travel guide at absolutely all times. It provides maximum flexibility and convenience without missing a moment of fascinating commentary. Our AMADEUS Audio System is, of course, also compatible with hearing aids.

Complimentary bikes on board

Away from the normal routes there are also many wonderful sights that are worth the extra trek. What better way of getting to know a country and its people than hopping on a bike and gliding along at your own leisurely pace? You can borrow one of our onboard bikes, free of charge, if you wish to be independent ashore.

Gourmet Dining
A Feast for the Senses

Cultural delights

Send your taste buds on a voyage of discovery as you enjoy the region’s culinary delights, as well as its scenic delights. You’ll be surprised at the symphonic temptations that emanate from the kitchen!

Get your day off to a good start by tackling the magnificent breakfast buffet in our elegant Panorama-Restaurant. For lunch, there’s the choice between varied menus and buffet specialties in the restaurant or a light alternative in the AMADEUS Salon.

Our carefully composed 5-course evening menus provide taste buds with all sort of surprises. We serve regional specialties of the countries we travel through, sophisticated menus, classic favourite dishes and vegetarian alternatives. 

Regional Specialties

What would Vienna be without its famous Tafelspitz, France without coq au vin or Bavaria without Frühschoppen? Our mindfully composed menus offer plentiful choices of regional specialties prepared with only the freshest ingredients from the places at which we stop - which means you get to know our destinations in culinary ways as well.

Your spacious stateroom

Staterooms & Suites

Spacious elegance and a special ambience – the atmosphere in our cabins invites relaxation, joy and leisure. Your cabin is just the right place to unwind after an eventful shore excursion and review all you have seen and done during the day; broad, panoramic windows, stylish furnishing with delightful details and – not least – attentive room service, contribute to making your trip a memorable one.

Your window to the world

Take in the views: absolutely all cabins in the AMADEUS fleet are outside cabins and most of them also have large opening panoramic glass fronts with French balconies, giving you incomparable views of the wonderful riverscapes floating by. On AMADEUS Provence and the Silver ships, all the suites also have exterior walkout balconies with comfortable seating.

A place for day-dreaming

Your comfortable cabin invites you to relax and daydream as well as sleep well at night! Not least because of its comfortable furnishings – top quality beds on all our ships make for nights of sleeping well, leading to good next-day starts. The two beds can be kept apart or linked to form a double bed – you decide which.

Luxurious elegance

All staterooms and suites have a comfortable seating area, an Infotainment system with flat-screen TV, telephone, safe, spacious wardrobe and hairdryer. Each cabin has individually adjustable air-conditioning and a comfortable bathroom with spa-quality toiletries supplied.

The Art of Relaxation
Your Perfect Retreat

Public Areas on Board

Because our main priority is to help you relax, there are several places on board where you can let your spirit roam free. These include the spacious Sun deck with Lido-Bar, the Panorama-Bar and Lounge, the cosy AMADEUS-Club, as well as fitness and wellness facilities. On our Silver series vessels, there is also the “River Terrace”, a wind-protected outside lounge area.

A place in the sun

From our sun deck a distinctive view unfolds of the natural scenery passing by and of the lovely towns that adjoin Europe’s waterways. This is the perfect place for those who seek entertainment and relaxation at the same time: The best way to enjoy the sunshine can be with a cool drink from the Lido Bar, playing a game of chess or shuffleboard, or just simply taking in the view and letting your thoughts wander. You’ll be surprised how much can be seen from our top deck!

The perfect day – as you like it

Why not chuck your usual routine overboard and start a feel-good programme of your very own! You could best do this by booking a relaxing massage in our Vital club or arranging for a beauty treatment with our onboard hairdresser. An excellent way to make an active start to the day would be to join the early morning exercise group on the sun deck or visit our well-equipped fitness room, which is open for you round the clock.

Your personal retreat

The AMADEUS Club is the perfect place in which to share the pleasures of the day with a glass of wine in the evening and relax to the gentle sounds of jazz or classics. You can also easily send holiday greetings to all your loved ones at home from our Internet stations in the AMADEUS Club.

River Terrace

Summertime is best enjoyed with a cool drink, which is why you will find a new form of open-air relaxation on our AMADEUS vessels: the elegant River Terrace generates a great holiday atmosphere and provides spectacular views of the river while its extensive glass panels protect you from the airstream and rain.
