You get talking, introduce yourselves, exchange pleasantries and - just minutes later - find yourself playing a game of chess or golf or having a companionable drink in the Panorama Bar. Shared pleasures when traveling simply doubles up the joie de vivre.

When all is said and done, getting to know other interesting people is one of the very special sources of pleasure that spring up for river cruise passengers who choose Amadeus. Not only is there so much to admire and talk about during the cruise but, again and again, moments when everyone joins in the laughter that keeps on breaking out.

After dinner why not take yourself to the Panorama Bar and Lounge. Entertainment from local musicians and a fully stocked bar where you will find your favourite tipple. With an elegant decor and floor to ceiling windows the Panorama bar and lounge allows you wonderful river views of the towns and cities of Europe.

Amadeus Club

Located at the aft on the Mozart Deck. The Amadeus Club is a comfortable space with plenty of chairs and tables and unimpeded views of the outside. The decor is nautical, with models of sailing ships and a replica bell. Self-service tea and coffee area is available, where passengers can help themselves to cappuccinos or espressos and choose from 16 varieties of tea.

Gift Shop

For those last minute souvenirs for friends and loved ones back home the gift shop provides a fantastic selection of gifts.

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.
