About Amadeus River Cruises

Amadeus River Cruises is a family-owned and operated company founded more than 40 years ago and we recognize the importance of having space, where people can feel at home and completely relaxed, so each year when we launch a new ship, we refined the layout, to ensure we keep offering clients the best ships on the European Rivers.

The Amadeus fleet features 14 multi award-winning ships offering spacious outside cabins, which are some of the largest in the industry. A majority with an outdoor balcony, or drop down panoramic windows. The ships also provide an abundance of public areas, so clients can enjoy the wonderful landscapes, as they cruise along the European rivers no matter where they are.

Our Amadeus family is comprised of thoroughly trained crew who work around the clock to make your clients trip an unforgettable experience.  Aboard all of the Amadeus ships, hospitality is more than just a tradition, it is a passion - a passion your guests will experience in every detail. With English speaking staff and crew trained to the highest standards of service, the ambience on board is relaxed yet impeccably gracious, designed to make your guests feel right at home in the heart of Europe.

With loving attention to detail, the head chef on all our AMADEUS ships will create new and imaginative menus for your clients every single day. Drawing inspiration from the regions they travel through as well as the season, our chefs will produce fresh and authentic symphonies of flavour to tempt your customers away on a culinary voyage of discovery. While on board guests are always free to choose between classic favourite dishes, vegetarian alternatives and delicious gourmet treats.

The onboard gourmet dining experience will include buffet breakfasts, multi-course lunch and dinner menus, afternoon tea and midnight snacks. Free-flowing local wine, beer and soft drinks are included with lunch and dinner, as well as complimentary tea and coffee at the 24 hour coffee station and bottled water in the cabin. The ships feature modern technology, including complimentary Wi-Fi.  Amadeus offer a choice of fascinating river cruises for every season and occasion, including itineraries that span the breadth of Europe from Amsterdam to the Black Sea.

Offering over 20 different itineraries along the Rhine, Main, Moselle, Danube (including the Danube Delta), Rhone and Saone, as well as the Dutch and Belgian Waterways, there truly is a wealth to explore with Amadeus. From UNESCO-listed cites and fields of endless tulips, to stunning river valleys lined with fairy tale castles, your guests can experience the rich heritage of Europe through its art, architecture and culture on board our award winning luxury ships. Guests can choose from 3 to 15 night sailings and also have the opportunity to enrich their holiday experience with a choice of fascinating excursions.
