Enrichment

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.

The AMADEUS concierge service

Feel like discovering the regions we travel through on your own? In that case we recommend you take advantage of our exclusive onboard concierge service. Whether you just want to make a dinner reservation on shore, stroll around the shops, get tickets to a museum exhibition or plan a private city tour, our experienced and well-connected concierge is on hand to provide recommendations and assistance at any time during your planning and will always have useful addresses available.

Those who book excursions are provided a Quietvox system. Passengers wear earpieces and receivers, while tour guides speak into a transmitter. This means passengers can go at their own pace among the group without missing what the tour guide is saying.

À la carte – or in a well-priced set of excursions

When there's such a healthy variety of available excursions, it can often be difficult to choose between them – so on each cruise we offer up to four tailor-made and carefully composed sets of excursions that you can book in advance at favorable prices. You can, of course, still book all excursions individually, à la carte, as our aim is for you to select the shore programme that suits you and your needs best.

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.
