Picture yourself leisurely cruising aboard a river boat, exploring fascinating ports aboard a deluxe ship or private yacht, or experiencing the old world glamour of a luxury train.

The AMADEUS Royal, launched in 2005 and completly renovated for 2015, is a premium passenger vessel fitted out with all imaginable refinements. The cabins on the Mozart and Strauss Deck, for instance, feature generous French balconies providing incomparable views of the breadth of the river. The superiority of the AMADEUS Royal is discernible down to the tiniest detail. Be it in the gastronomic delicacies that appear from the kitchen or in the fine wines emerging from the cruise ship's cellar, in the appointments of the luxurious Panorama Bar, or in the enjoyment of a relaxing massage or the sipping of a gloriously cream cocktail accompanied by the tinkle of mood-matching piano playing.
