River Cruising Through Europe Aboard Amadeus Riverboats
Join A&K for an inspiring Connections European River Cruise Journey along the Continent’s most scenic waterways aboard an elegant Amadeus riverboat. Spacious cabins and suites, most with French balconies, combine with an open and modern design, to make any vessel in the Amadeus fleet a perfect choice for exploring Europe in style and comfort.
All meals on board Amadeus riverboats are included and feature dinners prepared by an on-board chef and served with selected vintages from renowned wine regions around the world. Your Amadeus staff offers you genuine Austrian hospitality, blending superb service with the warmth of an Alpine country inn.
Making your boutique river cruise experience shine even brighter are the amenities and conveniences available only to those who book through A&K: pre- and post-cruise hotel nights, a small group of just 24 A&K guests, and best of all, private shore excursions accompanied by a dedicated A&K Tour Director.
Enjoy Morning on the River
Greet the day from the balcony of your cabin, watching your destination spring to life onshore. Make your way to your vessel’s Panorama Restaurant for breakfast, sampling their delectable Austrian pastries, sipping your favorite coffee or tea and chatting with fellow A&K guests about the day ahead. Your Tour Director is close at hand, already answering questions about today’s excursion.
Explore as a Group, Not With the Crowd
When it’s time to go ashore, disembark with your Tour Director to a waiting vehicle dedicated solely to your small group of 24. Relax and enjoy as A&K takes you to locations both renowned and off the beaten path. It may be an A&K exclusive experience at Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna that features an apple strudel-making demonstration or a tour of a World War II art bunker in Nuremberg.
Make an Authentic Connection
Wherever you go, enjoy the enrichment you find in the company of your expert local guide, who reveals the cultural significance and fascinating history of each new place you visit. Along the way, meet and speak with local Europeans, making a connection with them and getting a glimpse of life in Europe through their eyes.
Walk or Bike on Your Own
If the day’s itinerary leaves time for an unplanned excursion, ask your Tour Director for recommendations on the best local attractions to explore on your own. Visit a charming neighborhood on foot or by bicycle, compliments of your friendly Amadeus crew.
Return to Your Floating Home
As twilight gathers, reboard your riverboat, sharing highlights of your day over a dinner prepared by your onboard chef and served with matching wines. Before turning in, enjoy a nightcap with fellow guests or get in a brief workout in the fitness room. Then, retire to your well-appointed suite or cabin, arising the next day to start your adventure anew.
