Get ready for an unforgettable European experience which fits the wonders of Dutch waterways, the Rhine, the Main and the Main-Danube Canal, all into one cruise.
Highlights of the itinerary are the capital city of Amsterdam with its many canals and bustling streets, the cathedral city of Cologne, the Upper Middle Rhine Valley and its incredible wealth of castles and winegrowing villages, the historic university city of Würzburg and the medieval town of Bamberg in Bavaria. Along the way, pass the Main-Danube canal, an engineering marvel completed in 1992 connecting the rivers through the heart of Europe.
Due to low clearance heights at bridges and locks on the river route between Frankfurt and Nuremberg, access to the sun deck might be restricted for safety reasons.
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.
