Welcome to Amadeus

Cruising the waterways of Europe is an experience you won’t forget. River cruising delivers a unique perspective on beautiful landscapes and historic ports, allowing you to reach deep into the heart of the Continent, but also to explore some of its more remote regions, all at a leisurely pace.

At Journeys by Van Dyke we have been offering river cruising since 1988, and over the past 31 years, we have cultivated the knowledge, partnerships, and discernment needed to craft truly exceptional river cruises complete with exclusive Journey moments. As experts in European river cruising, we are continuing to evolve and offer new and exciting journeys alongside timeless favourites, having mastered the art of pairing each destination to just the right vessel. This care in our craft ensures that your journey will be simply perfect!



As part of our mission to deliver exceptional experiences, we are excited to announce two new itineraries for 2020 in collaboration with Amadeus, a leader in European river cruising. Like Journeys by Van Dyke, Amadeus has a long history of excellence sailing elegant and understated ships along Europe’s most exquisite waterways.

Loyal guests can rest assured that we have chosen to work with Amadeus because they offer the exceptional service you have come to expect when travelling with us, as well as the state-of-the-art features that will define cruising for the future.



When you embark with us on Amsterdam to Budapest aboard the MS Amadeus Queen or Bucharest to Vienna aboard the MS Amadeus Silver II, you will be pleased by the many features that make the cabins on these vessels comfortable and inviting. The first distinct difference is the unobstructed view of the sights of Europe you will enjoy, thanks to the walk-out balconies and automatically lowering panoramic windows. You will be inspired by the many sights of medieval towns passing by from the serenity of the indoor pool on the MS Amadeus Queen. When it comes time to turn in for the evening, both vessels deliver comfort in spacious beds, with your choice of double or twin configuration.



For our first-time cruisers, you are certain to be in awe of the incomparable access to the authentic communities we visit on shore. Our private excursions are designed so your local encounters are rich and meaningful. Back on board, discover the living history of Europe from the river terrace on the upper-deck, offering unobstructed and expansive views of the Lorelei or the Iron Gates. The light colour palette and subtle appointments of these ships are the perfect complement to the visual delights of the passing landscape.



Offering the perfect blend of authentic experiences and luxury finishes, these Amadeus vessels capture the essence of our mission, to offer you travel that is memorable from start to finish. Embark with us in 2020 and let your professional Journey Manager, signature inclusions, and new friends form the memories that will stay with you for years to come.
