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 boasts a sumptuous collection of accommodations with stylish furnishings, plus panoramic windows that mean the stunning views of picturesque ports and river banks form an ever-changing backdrop. All Amadeus cabins are placed on the outside of the ships, so every guest has a room with a view. Cabins located on the top two decks can throw open their windows and step out onto French balconies to enjoy the breeze as they travel to their next destination. (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. Book an Amadeus suite and you can even enjoy your very own bathtub, as well as a minibar and a comfortable seating area where you can admire the passing views.


Amadeus river cruises are both relaxing and remarkable. Enjoy some of the most culturally enriching entertainment on Europe’s waterways as the Panorama Bar welcomes musical artists, fascinating talks and spectacular entertainers. Enjoy conversations with the cruise director, learning of the history and regions as you pass through: from the scenery of 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.

Discovering Amadeus

Experience effortless travel on Amadeus river cruises as you pass port after beautiful port, each framed by panoramic windows. Enjoy the journey as much as the destination, with ship amenities and open spaces allowing you to socialise, relax or take in exciting entertainment. With no request too small, let the professional staff and crew take care of the finer details – from those little luxuries to exceptional service. Hospitality is the Amadeus crew's passion, with all on-board staff trained to the highest standards.

Amadeus river cruises are also unique in their commitment to sustainable cruising; making a conscious effort to use as few natural resources as possible. This allows the cruise line to save energy and water while maintaining a social and ecological sense of responsibility for Europe’s waterways. As a result, Amadeus has received the ‘Green Certification’ seal of approval, awarded by the world’s leading association, Green Globe.

Amadeaus’ river cruise ships are unique. Both environmentally and culturally aware, all nine ships are designed to offer the utmost respect to their natural surroundings and local life. But the innovation doesn’t stop there – take a look at what you can experience on-board each vessel as you explore Europe.

MS Amadeus Brilliant

 MS Amadeus Royal

Completely renovated for 2015, MS Amadeus Royal is elegant and refined. Sip a cocktail in the luxurious Panorama Bar accompanied by the tinkle of a mood-matching piano, or enjoy a relaxing massage in the Wellness Club and Salon.

Five-star epicurean excellence and sparkling sunrises await on-board MS Amadeus Diamond. 40 crew members offer welcoming Austrian hospitality while you play golf on the Sun Deck or enjoy a cup of coffee in the elegant Amadeus Club.

MS Amadeus Silver

Named ‘2013 River Ship of the Year’ by the prestigious German Kreuzfahrt Guide, MS Amadeus Silver offers a tranquil Wellness Club and Salon, a two-story gym, a professional hairdresser and, of course, gourmet cuisine.

MS Amadeus Queen

Touring the Danube, Rhine and Main rivers as well as the Dutch and Belgian waterways, this river cruise ship is, indeed, Queen of the Amadeus fleet. The highlight is undoubtedly an indoor pool with a roof that opens up fine weather.
