The beautiful ms Amadeus Silver III, built in 2015, is one of the newest member of the Amadeus Cruises fleet.

Purpose-built to sail the safe scenic waters of Europe’s rivers, she has three decks with cabins and public rooms plus a spacious Sun Deck for viewing the countryside.  All cabins are outside and each features twin beds (which can convert to a large bed), a private bathroom with shower, telephone, TV, hairdryer and air conditioning (the ship operates on 220 volts). Cabins on Haydn Deck (lowest) have a picture window while cabins on Strauss and Mozart Decks have a panoramic window that extends across the entire width of the cabin which automatically lower to make the stateroom become it’s own balcony.  The 12 balcony suites on the Mozart Deck also offer outdoor seating.  On the Haydn Deck you will also find the fitness room, and massage area.  On the Strauss Deck is the Restaurant (seats all passengers at once), Reception and shop. On Mozart Deck you will find a panorama bar and Café Vienna. The open Sun Deck features deck chairs, walking track, Lido Bar and chess boards.
