Amadeus River Cruises
  • Overview

First founded over 30 years ago, Amadeus River Cruises is a leading operator of luxury river cruises known for their high standard of comfort, expert service and great enthusiasm towards river cruising and the environment. As a family-owned business, it is a core principle of theirs to make sure guests are feeling comfortable onboard and to promote a sense of familiarity and companionship. They ensure the time you spend on your river cruise keeps you relaxed and satisfied, no matter what you choose to do and where you sail.

Amadeus Health and Safety

As they welcome guests back onboard, Amadeus have enhanced their hygiene measures to make sure that all passengers and crew are safe.

Crew and Guest Health

Prior to boarding, all guests will have to complete a health questionnaire, as well as a contactless temperature check at boarding. Crew will undergo medical examinations before boarding and health checks throughout, as well as only being allowed to embark if they have a negative Covid-19 test from the past four days. Should anyone show symptoms onboard, they will be immediately isolated and given a rapid test, with local health authorities informed if needed. Where necessary, crew will be provided with PPE.

Check-in and onboard

At check-in, social distancing will be maintained with staggered check-in times and more waiting areas to avoid crowding. This will be continued onboard with a 1.5 metre rule, or mandatory face coverings where this is not possible, such as in lifts. In addition, table sizes in restaurants will be smaller and there will be waiter service in the bars.

When it comes to cleaning, the frequency of surfaces with a high touch rate, such as door handles and handrails, will be increased, and there will be hand sanitizer stations in the busiest areas, including restaurants, lobbies and crew areas. Throughout the ship guests will find information on appropriate sneezing, coughing and handwashing etiquette.


Tailored from top to bottom with Austrian hospitality and quality, each of Amadeus' ships are designed with luxurious and rich furnishings and décor, and fitted with an excellent choice of amenities. Designed to create a boutique hotel experience on the water, you'll find yourself relaxing and unwinding from the moment you step onboard.


Onboard an Amadeus ship the dining reflects the luxury experience found throughout your cruise. With carefully curated menus showcasing the best cuisine of the regions visited, as well as dishes geared towards dietary requirements, every guest can sit down for meal after meal of delicious fare.

Panorama Restaurant is the main venue onboard, serving up an impressive selection of dishes at breakfast and lunch. However, evenings are the star of the show, where guests can settle down for five courses of fine dining. Alternatively, light bites and sweet treats can be found throughout the day at Amadeus Salon or Café Vienna.


Carry on your enriching shore excursions onboard with Amadeus' entertainment. For those who like to dance, the onboard musicians are guaranteed to get you up on your feet and moving. Meanwhile, folklore shows and themed evenings will help you find out even more about the regions you visit during your cruise.

If you're looking for somewhere to enjoy a drink with friends in the evening the Amadeus Club is the perfect spot for a glass of wine, while a cocktail on the River Terrace complete with river views won't disappoint.


As you make your way along some of the world's most beautiful waterways, make the most of the slower pace of life by enjoying Amadeus' onboard activities. Head out onto the Sun Deck where you'll find everything from chess to shuffleboard, as well as the ideally located Lido Bar for refreshments. What's more, if you want to truly unwind and relax during your holiday, Vital Club is on hand for luxurious massages, while the onboard hairdresser will be sure to give you the hairstyle of your dreams. There's even something for those who like to stay fit, with a fitness centre and classes on offer for those of any level.


Designed to be a spacious, elegant and peaceful place to head back to for a great night's sleep, each stateroom and suite onboard Amadeus' ships are guaranteed to delight. Every room is an outside cabin meaning you'll never lose sight of the views, while many also boast a French balcony so you can make the most of the fresh air. Inside your room you'll find all the amenities you need for a luxurious stay, including a flat-screen TV, air condition and spa-quality toiletries.


With Amadeus you'll be sure to find exciting itineraries sailing down whichever beautiful waterway you choose to explore, including:

  • Dutch and Belgian Waterways

  • Rhine, Main and Moselle

For those looking for an even more memorable voyage, Amadeus offer themed cruises, including music and golf, while Winter Cruises will get you in the festive spirit as you visit Christmas Markets.
