Amadeus Brilliant

The Amadeus Brilliant, launched in April 2011, is one of the newest additions to the growing Amadeus fleet. Measuring 110 metres in length and 11.4 metres in width this beautiful vessel complements the existing fleet perfectly. With a total of 4 decks, the ship features just 67 cabins and 9 additional suites, all with en suite shower facilities and most of which offer a French balcony. Other amenities include a spacious sun deck with sun loungers, international restaurant serving exquisite cuisine and an intimate lounge bar.




Amadeus Brilliant - Restaurant

Dine in style in the elegant Panorama Restaurant, with its panoramic windows. The open seating policy allows guests to choose their own table and the restaurant is large enough to accommodate all guests within one sitting. The onboard chefs will prepare a selection of fresh regional and international dishes which will please the most discerning of guests. For the early risers, breakfast will be served in the restaurant, and includes freshly brewed coffee and tea, a selection of yoghurts, cereals, fresh juices, freshly baked breads, pastries, cold cuts and cheeses. Hot options vary from day to day but tend to include eggs, bacon and sausages. The chef will also prepare omelettes and fried eggs to order and upon request. Lunch is typically buffet-style and waiter served (depending on the course) and includes salads, soups and a selection of substantial main courses, or lighter fish and sandwich options, followed by a wide choice of desserts, the most popular being the home made cakes and tarts. Afternoon tea is served in the lounge and dinner will be a four course menu, featuring regional specialities. Complimentary red and white European wines are served with dinner, and a Gala Dinner will round off your memorable dining experience on your last evening.

Lounge Bar

Amadeus Brilliant - Panorama Bar

The beautifully appointed lounge bar on the Amadeus Brilliant features floor to ceiling windows, offering amazing views of the passing scenery. During the day relax and watch the world go by, or participate in a quiz, foreign language lesson or listen to a lecture based on the area you are passing through. Enjoy a pre dinner cocktail as you chat to other guests. After dinner, retreat to the bar again and absorb the music as you sip a night cap, or even have a dance!

Sun Deck

Amadeus Brilliant - Sun Deck

The spacious Sun Deck features comfortable deckchairs for sunbathing, a walking track so that you can exercise while you cruise, a giant chess game and a bar. This is also the best vantage point for taking in the breathtaking scenery and capturing those truly memorable moments on your camera.

Fitness Room
