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.



Welcome onboard

Experience outstanding comfort and quality aboard the AMADEUS BRILLIANT accompanied by perfect service in an elegant atmosphere. Discover our unforgettable river cruises on the most beautiful European waterways within the comforts of a floating luxury hotel.

Amadeus stands for cruises that are culturally and environmentally aware, and combined with Old Style Austrian hospitality, the staff are devoted to satisfying your every wish and need. You will be made to feel on top of the world and you’ll enjoy enjoy every moment, whether on water or land, to the full.

On the ship you will enjoy the comforts and superb service of a five-star hotel and you will visit the enthralling cities of Europe without having to pack and unpack along the way.

All of the cabins face out and allow for uninterrupted views of the river and landscapes through their large glass fronts. Thus, in a truly wonderful way, living well and travelling well become inextricably entwined.


Sharing great moments

Travel brings people together and on an Amadeus ship you will be cruising with like-minded people.

Sharing highlights of the day over a companionable drink in the Panorama Bar, exchanging pleasantries and –minutes later – you might find yourself playing a game of chess or golf or having a rubber of cards with your fellow voyagers.


An oasis for the mind and body

Exercise and relaxation, variety and calm. It is precisely these opposites that characterise each day you spend on your cruise.

So, if you like, you can start the morning with a visit to the fitness studio or by joining in on an exercise class on the sun deck. If you prefer to relax completely, you can treat yourself to a massage or make an appointment with the hairdresser.

Equally you might like to lounge on the sun deck with a good book, appreciating the scenery floating slowly by, or to get chatting to other passengers over coffee and cakes. Whatever you decide to do, AMADEUS life offers a perfect mixture of inspiring entertainment and beneficial relaxation.
