Gift Shop

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.  

Excursions

As you disembark with a small group of no more than 24 guests each excursion is led by an expert local guide, to experience Europe at its most authentic.

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.

Bike Hire

Those who would rather explore on their own can borrow one of five cruiser bikes to take into that day's city. It is recommended by reserving them a day ahead of time but will supply them if they are available that day.
