River cruising is a very pleasant way to spend a holiday. The video below is a tour of my cabin on the Mozart Deck of Amadeus Silver II which sailed from Budapest to Passau along the River Danube. The cabin was luxurious and beautiful, like a hotel room, no sailor’s bunks here with a small porthole! Electric window opening the full width of the cabin meant lots of fresh air and the chance to hang out and take photos. If you prefer a more closed environment, the cabins are fully air-conditioned.
Cabin fixtures and fittings
Like a comfortable hotel room, my cabin had a television which also displayed the view from the cameras on the bow. A well-supplied mini-bar had lots of things to drink, though I didn’t access it – I had enough at meal times and in the cocktail lounge to keep me going. Telephones from cabin-to-cabin made it easy to call my new best friends to meet me on deck to watch the sunset.
The shower was a surprise because I was expecting a small cubicle. No, this is roomy with good hot water and shower head. The toiletries included were generous – that amount would last me a month at home. And great towels – thick, soft and plentiful like the pillows on the bed. No stingy flat objects here that you have to fold in half to sleep.
Even a luxurious cabin like this one can’t contain an adventurous spirit and the lovely thing about cruising on a river is you get to see so much of the countries you are passing through. When you tire of watching the scenery, you can go ashore and explore the villages and cities and ports of call.
