ABOUT AMADEUS CRUISES: (*Previously Amras Cruises)
In the 1970s, a small, family-owned travel company hailing from the village of Amras, Austria, launched a new and different kind of European travel experience, featuring cruises on chartered ships sailing the Rhine, Main, and Danube Rivers. Not only was theirs the first travel company to offer chartered cruises along the waterways of Europe, they virtually invented modern river cruising with the launch of their first ship, the award-winning 'MS Amadeus'. Today, with 10 ships in the prized 'Amadeus' fleet, Amras Cruises Worldwide is proud to offer our premier collection of river cruises designed exclusively for English-speaking travelers through Amras Cruises.
