The AMADEUS Queen, the 15th river cruise ship of the Austrian ship operator, will tour the Danube, Rhine and Main rivers as well as Dutch and Belgian waterways from spring 2018. Similar to its prominent predecessors, this ship will also continue the company’s orientation to high quality river cruises in Europe.

This new vessel follows the award-winning model of the AMADEUS Silver ships but offers even further innovative developments. The popular concept of spaciousness has been maintained. This includes not only generous public areas but also spacious cabins: 12 large suites impress with an outdoor balcony and a cozy reading corner whilst the 69 standard cabins mainly have panoramic window fronts which can be automatically lowered and luxurious bathrooms. A new on-board highlight is the indoor pool, the roof of which can be opened in fine weather. In the evenings, this area may also be used for informative talks, functions and cinema showings.

Malcolm says: Amadeus Queen will be 135m in length and carry 162 passengers.

I’m quite a fan of Amadeus. My first two river cruises were on-board their vessels – See HERE for my reviews. Amadeus represent good value compared to many other river cruise lines.

Amadeus boats are made in the same boatyard as ‘Emerald Waterways’ fleet. However although similar, in the past the Amadeus boats did not have the indoor pool as Emerald did, that can also convert into a small cinema-space. The new ‘Queen’ will this feature.

Maybe you should think about taking a river cruise in 2018?
