(French balconies are only featured on Amadeus Rhapsody and Amadeus Symphony.)

Each Amadeus cabin is equipped with bathroom facilities, infotainment systems and spacious wardrobes, making you feel at home whilst on-board. Suites also include a bathtub, mini bar and a comfortable seating area.


Each dish on your Amadeus river cruise has been lovingly prepared by ambitious chefs, providing sophisticated menus and international specialities which will leave you wanting another plate!

Amadeus offers full-board catering, providing everything from morning snacks to sumptuous five-course dinners, all with vegetarian alternatives. Soft drinks, beer and wine are all included with both lunch and dinner, with tea and coffee available at no extra cost, 24-hours a day.

Enjoy Amadeus’ fantastic Austrian hospitality, Austrian delicacies and a fine selection of European wines as sail to your next port of call.


Amadeus river cruises are both relaxing and remarkable, offering some of the most culturally enriching entertainment on Europe’s waterways. The Panorama Bar welcomes musical artists, fascinating talks and spectacular entertainers. 

Enjoy conversations with the Cruise Director, learn of the history and regions as you pass through them, and witness spectacular scenery from the Danube to the birth of the Rhine-Main-Danube canal.

If you find yourself dreaming of how to make speciality dishes such as the Austrian apfelstrudel, tarte flambée or even the famous French chocolate cake, attend a cooking demonstration and master the art of a local speciality to cook at home.
