A Day on a European River Cruise with Amadeus Waterways
On a typical day on board, your ship departs after midnight and cruises quietly through the night to the next destination. Early risers can watch the sunrise from the Sun Deck while savoring a cup of freshly brewed coffee or walk laps on the Sun Deck before heading to the restaurant for the delectable morning buffet. During breakfast, you will arrive in a charming town or a major city where local guides wait to show you the highlights of their hometown during the all-included sightseeing tours. Spend the entire morning exploring ashore before returning to your ship around noon and continuing to cruise to your next destination.
Refresh in your stateroom, then join your friends and fellow travelers in the restaurant for a delicious lunch, surrounded by magnificent scenery. Later, stretch out in a comfortable chaise lounge on the Sun Deck and let the world float by. Or play a game of giant chess, sip your favorite drink at the Lido Bar or listen to an interesting lecture presented in the Main Lounge. Why not treat yourself to a relaxing massage or take in the scenic view from the fitness area while working out on the treadmill. You may want to retreat to your stateroom, open the sliding glass door of your French balcony and take in the refreshing air of the European countryside. Your personal stateroom Infotainment System provides easy Internet and e-mail access, worldwide news stations in English, a large selection of great movies and music programs.
