Taste the Region

We combine the love of travel with a passion for excellent cuisine. Every day, we spoil you with international classics as well as seasonal specialties from the region you are traveling to. Much of what delights your palate in the evening is delivered dewy fresh on board in the morning. Or selected by our chefs at the local markets. Regionality and seasonality are in the foreground with us, so that your curiosity also comes to the taste. Bon appétit.

OR: 

We combine the love of travel with a passion for excellent cuisine. The AMADEUS culinary team is dedicated to preparing every one of our dishes on board because it is as important to us that each and every meal is served fresh. Our chefs prepare food that reflects the season and incorporates the flavors of the regions we travel to. Devour the creamy decadence of a Rüdesheimer coffee in Rüdesheim, enjoy a cup of glühwein after a day spent shopping the Christkindlmarkts, or experience the pleasure of biting into a savory piece of apfelstrudel, or apple strudel, while relaxing in the Panorama Bar after a morning exploring Vienna’s rich history. The AMADEUS culinary experience is as authentic as its place of origin because these very places are a part of our own history. It’s our privilege to invite you to experience this journey with AMADEUS.

Tradition

The Perfect Slice of Heaven

Traditional art of baking

Every morning, before dawn breaks the horizon, bakers all over Europe begin their day by preparing bread dough and honoring age-old traditions that have been distinctly tied to their region’s heritage for centuries. Bauernbrot. Kaiser rolls. Pumpernickel. Croissant. Brioche. These recipes have been passed from generation to generation, and over the years, very little has changed. Onboard every AMADEUS river cruise ship, our bakers are hard at work doing exactly the same. Every day, with every course, a bounty of freshly baked bread and rolls are offered, representing our European heritage, customs and culture.

Inspires All The Senses: Market Experience

Food gives new perspective into a destination’s people, spirit and soul. It gives you a greater appreciation for customs and history. Food inspires passion and invites flavor. To understand a destination, is to experience how their cuisine is shopped for, how it is prepared and eaten, and how it inspires. Join an AMADEUS chef on a unique visit to the local farmer’s market while in some select ports. Get new perspective on how products are selected and enjoy sample tastings for some specialties on the Naschmarkt in Vienna, the flower market in Amsterdam, the market hall in Budapest and many more.

Masterful: Our Wine Selection

"Wine is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy," Benjamin Franklin already knew. We know it too - and invite you to travel with us to some of Europe’s top wine producing destinations; the rivers we travel on are a fundamental component in cultivating ideal conditions to produce memorable wines. AMADEUS’ head chef expertly selects premium wines directly from local vineyards to complement our region-influenced menus. Stunning red and whites are paired with each meal, and an à la carte collection is stored onboard for the passenger who prefers to choose a personal favorite, or try something exciting and new.

Shall we meet at the bar?

Whether you want to enjoy your favorite classic cocktail or give your curiosity a glass of inspiration, our professional bartenders will satisfy your every taste. In addition to fresh beer on tap and a wide selection of non-alcoholic drinks, you can always enjoy a good cup of tea or coffee at the bar.
