MS Amadeus

The MS AMADEUS is still quite new, but this early member of the AMADEUS fleet already exudes faint wafts of nostalgia and romance. Not only does she incorporate the history of the changes that have come about on Europe's rivers, but she has also witnessed the countless adventures and special moments of her many thousands of enthusiastic passengers. Whether it be lounging on the lovely sun deck, deep in a book in the ship's library, or sipping a class of wine in the Panorama bar - enjoy the special ambience of this splendidly elegant riverboat and enjoy the peaceful scenery along our continent's most important lifelines.

Elegant, friendly, comfortable – you’ll feel completely at home.

Aboard the Amadeus ships you appreciate the ease of travel without having to forego any of the elegant comforts of a 5-star hotel. Their main personal concern is to ensure you feel good on board and can enjoy your cruise on Europe’s most beautiful waterways without having to worry about anything at all.

You’ll feel at home right away when you see how stylish the luxurious cabins are, and how comfortably equipped. Absolutely all the Amadeus fleet’s cabins are outside facing and most of them have French balconies. The broad glass frontages provide spectacular views of the scenery passing by, of charming towns and fascinating cultural sights.

Travelling and living, revelations and relaxation – where are all these holiday features brought together better than on the very special Amadeus ships? Your floating 5-star hotel takes you right through Europe and the best thing of all is you only have to unpack your luggage once!


Step aboard an Amadeus vessel and taste everything that the landscapes, regions, and the adventurous head chef can offer you in the way of carefully composed menus and local specialities. The kitchen team combines its love of cooking with its goal to present you with modern haute cuisine tempered with a classical approach to food.

To this end, they recommend and serve you selected wines that go perfectly with each dish. You will see for yourself how each plate that leaves the Amadeus kitchen is a work of art that our waiters know just how to place before you with charm, cheerfulness, and panache. Dinner is the crowning glory of each day of the cruise.


Travel brings people together. You will enjoy traveling over land and water with like-minded people.

You get talking, introduce yourselves, exchange pleasantries and - just minutes later - find yourself playing a game of chess or golf or having a companionable drink in the Panorama Bar. Shared pleasures when traveling simply doubles up the joie de vivre.

When all is said and done, getting to know other interesting people is one of the very special sources of pleasure that spring up for river cruise passengers who choose Amadeus. Not only is there so much to admire and talk about during the cruise but, again and again, moments when everyone joins in the laughter that keeps on breaking out. 

Health and fitness

Exercise and relaxation, variety and calm. It is precisely these alternations that characterise each day you spend on an Amadeus cruise.

So you can, if you like, start the morning with a visit to the fitness studio or join an exercise class on the sun deck. But if you would prefer to relax completely, you can treat yourself to a massage or make an appointment with the hairdresser.

You might also like to lounge on the sun deck with a good book, appreciating the scenery floating slowly by, or get to chatting to other passengers over coffee and cakes. Whatever you decide to do, Amadeus life offers a perfect mixture of inspiring entertainment and beneficial relaxation.

Kids and Teens

Please note: There are currently no facilities onboard specifically for children or teens.


The vessel docks, and you disembark and discover new things...

You see Europe at its most beautiful - gliding through memorable riverside scenery and passing many different kinds of sights, small towns, and bustling big cities. An Amadeus river cruise has its own special way of showing you the most diverse sights of Europe and keeps on surprising you - whether on board or ashore - as you learn new aspects of Europe's complex history.

The impressions you gain along the banks of the rivers seem to be almost infinite - such that, however well you may know a stretch of country, you find yourself discovering it all over again.
