Amadeus Silver III
The elegance and romance of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s music was inspiration in the meticulous crafting of the deluxe Amadeus Silver III, which set new standards in design and technology and features the comforts of a floating five-star hotel.
Each exclusively chartered ship offers up to 84 river-view, air-conditioned, stylishly appointed suites (284 square feet) and staterooms (from 172 square feet), among the most spacious of any European river ship. Most accommodations feature a French balcony (floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors with iron railing). Each has two twin beds (convertible to one queen-size bed), a private bathroom with shower (suites have bathtub with shower), individual climate control, satellite telephone and television, writing desk, safe, and hair dryer.
Freshly prepared continental meals featuring local ingredients are served in single, unassigned seatings in the delightfully scenic Panorama Restaurant and include early-risers’ coffee, buffet breakfast and lunch, afternoon tea, four‑course dinner, and late-evening snack. Complimentary house wine and beer are served with lunch and dinner.
Public facilities are spacious and typically include the Panorama Bar, Lido Bar, Amadeus-Club with Internet station, library, beauty salon, boutique, fitness studio with massage services and early morning exercise classes, and Sun Deck with outdoor dipping pool, golf putting green, and walking track. Guests will also appreciate the complimentary audio headset available to all passengers for listening enhancement during shore excursions. Laundry service is available.
The English-speaking, international crew provides warm hospitality. The Amadeus Silver III meets the highest safety standards and is the only fleet of European river ships to have been awarded the “Green Certificate” of environmental preservation.
