This is a special cruise program with many unforgettable highlights, including seven countries (Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania) and five world famous capital cities (Vienna, Budapest, Bratislava, Belgrade and Bucharest). A particular scenic highlight of this trip is the cruise through the “Iron Gates”, the imposing gorge where the Danube breaks through the Carpathian Mountains.
The journey to kilometer zero, at the estuary of the Danube where it meets the Black Sea, and the visit to the Danube Delta with its amazing wildlife and scenery will remain unforgettable experiences. The trip is rounded off by a stay in Bucharest, the legendary Romanian capital full of history and tradition. The cruise can be booked either from Vienna to Bucharest or in the opposite direction, from Bucharest to Vienna.
The AMADEUS Riva is designed to offer our guests an effortless combination of the vibrant energy of a river cruise day with an increasingly calm and intimate ship experience.
From spring 2023, the AMADEUS Riva will offer guests a choice of 12 suites and 67 exterior cabins across four decks that feature mostly walk-out balconies or lowerable panoramic windows. The newbuilt follows the progressive design and top-level standard that the AMADEUS fleet is famous for, accompanied by generously designed public spaces, as well as numerous luxury outdoor and dining venues: guests can look forward to the elegant Panorama-Restaurant, the intimate dining lounge with highlight menu, the Panorama-Bar with dance floor, the classic "Café Vienna", the glazed open-air “River Terrace” bar on the ship’s bow, the wellness area with massage, hairdresser and fitness room, as well as the spacious sun deck with relaxed lounge and outdoor restaurant.
The AMADEUS Riva will incorporate the very latest technologies in sustainable travel. The innovative ship’s engine not only enables highly efficient energy management but also significantly reduces CO2 emissions. The ship’s newly developed air filtration system with two-stage purification is equally innovative and modern.
The AMADEUS STAR, a masterpiece of engineering and ship design, joined the fleet in 2019.
The ship offers a total of 70 spacious deluxe cabins and 12 AMADEUS Suites. Similar to our other ships, the AMADEUS STAR cabins on the Mozart and Strauss Deck also feature lowerable panoramic windows which extend across the entire cabin front and have been specially designed for the AMADEUS ships. All deluxe cabins and suites offer comfortable, spacious bathrooms, infotainment systems, flat screen television, telephone, cabin safe, minibar and air conditioning which can be individually regulated. Furthermore, the suites feature a comfortable corner sofa, luxurious bathroom and walk-out external balcony.
