Amadeus River Cruises Ships
Guests flock to Amadeus from all over the world which makes for a vibrant international atmosphere when socialising with your fellow guests at the welcome cocktail parties and fun themed nights. With English and German used interchangeably onboard Amadeus river ships and guided tours, there is also a great mix of international appeal and home comforts.
Amadeus luxury river cruise ships are relatively small with between 120 and 180 guests and a crew-to-guest ratio of around 1:3 for attentive, dedicated service. However, Amadeus river ships are renowned for their spaciousness, with roomy cabins and suites, walk in wardrobes and bright and airy social spaces. In addition, all Amadeus staterooms and suites are all-balcony for great views from your private little haven as well as boasting a safe, en-suite bathroom, phone, aircon and TV.
Onboard Amadeus guests will also find plenty of space in the bar or lounge to socialise and watch the gorgeous views slide by, as well as deck games, such as giant chess or shuffleboard, and a pool. There are also fitness rooms, a spa and even a hairdresser onboard for a bit of pampering! Apart from evening dinners, no formal dress code is enforced either, allowing you to truly relax and unwind during your amazing cruise through the waterways of Europe.
Euros are the currency used onboard Amadeus while Wi-Fi is complimentary around all areas of your ship. The best of both worlds is also met for smokers and non-smokers alike with smokers able to do so on the sun decks of the ships. There are also lifts between the inside decks but none to the top deck. In this case, and when boarding and unboarding in some ports, guests should note that river cruising can be tricky for passengers with limited mobility.
Amadeus also provide fantastic river cruises for solo travellers, often with reduced or even no single supplements on many sailings. There’s also a great Amadeus River Cruises loyalty scheme for returning guests at the Amadeus Cruiser Club. Available for anyone after just one cruise with Amadeus, returning guests receive €30 onboard spend per guest as well as an invite to the VIP cocktail reception. Meanwhile, for those who’ve completed three Amadeus cruises or more, you’ll also get an invite to the captain’s’ table for dinner, possible cabin upgrade, limited offers and €50 spend per person.
