This cruise includes a trip along the Rhine-Main-Danube canal (a masterpiece of engineering), and along the Danube River.
Pass through four of Europe’s most important countries (Germany, Austria, Hungary and Slovakia), three world-famous capital cities (Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava), and through diverse landscapes such as the “Schlögener Schlinge” below Passau, the picturesque, myth-enshrouded Wachau region, and the Danube-knee at Visegrad (the Hungarian Wachau), with imposing architectural buildings along the banks of the rivers, such as Melk Abbey and the Esztergom Basilica.
The 5-star-vessel AMADEUS Cara, which entered service in 2022, made once again the AMADEUS fleet one of the youngest and most modern river cruise fleets in Europe. The new ship offers space for 162 guests on a length of 135 meters and will be deployed on the Danube, the Rhine and its tributaries. In addition to the Panorama Restaurant, the Panorama Bar and Lounge, the "Café Vienna", the Amadeus Club, the open-air "River Terrace" lounge and a fitness and massage room each, guests can expect an inviting, newly designed sun deck with a lower sun deck lounge. The very spacious interior concept is based on the multiple award-winning design of the AMADEUS Silver series, that allows for the highest level of living comfort: the staterooms on the Strauss and Mozart decks feature panoramic window fronts which can be lowered and extend across the entire breadth, while the 10 suites feature a walk-in balcony.
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.
