Tour Details



Our Smithsonian tour was amazing. It was educational, scenic and fun. All the guides were exceptional and truly gave us insight into our destination. 

Gail M.

The tour "Waterways of Holland and Belgium" was a truly wonderful, joyous experience - the places visited were interesting and often awe-inspiring; the ship was a lovely "base" and the leaders all were marvelous - and, I might add, we had a thoroughly delightful group of fellow travelers!

Amadeus Elegant

The elegance and romance of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s music was inspiration in the meticulous crafting of the deluxe Amadeus Elegant, which set new standards in design and technology and features the comforts of a floating five-star hotel.

The exclusively chartered Amadeus Elegant offers 76 river-view, air-conditioned, stylishly appointed suites (up to 236 square feet) and staterooms (from 161 square feet), among the most spacious of any European river ship. Most accommodations feature a French balcony (floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door 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 seating in the delightfully scenic Panorama Restaurant and include early-risers’ coffee, buffet breakfast and lunch, afternoon tea, and four-course dinner and late evening snack. Complimentary wine and beer are served with lunch and dinner.

Public facilities are spacious and include the Panorama Bar, Lido Bar, Amadeus-Club with Internet station, beauty salon, boutique, fitness studio with massage services and early morning exercise classes, shuffleboard, chess board, and Sun Deck with shuffleboard and chess board. 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 Elegant meets the highest safety standards and is one of the only European river ship fleets to have been awarded the “Green Certificate” of environmental preservation.
