Amadeus River Cruises has ordered a ship for delivery in 2021.

The Amadeus Cara will become the 17th in the company’s fleet.

Amadeus said the ship is designed to offer more personal space and amenities, including an extended outdoor deck off the club lounge in the rear, a glassed-in River Terrace at the front, massage and hair salon, and modern fitness room.

It will have 70 cabins at 188 square feet and 12 at 284 square feet.

Amadeus executive vice president Marcus Leskovar said the Amadeus Cara “will not only serve as much-needed increased capacity for the great demand of our high-quality river cruises, but is also a promise to our passengers that we will continue to offer one of the most modern fleets in the five-star segment.”

The company said the name, derived from the Latin for valuable or precious, was chosen to represent Amadeus’ commitment to luxury river cruising.

The Amadeus Cara will sail its maiden voyage on the Danube to and from Passau at the end of April 2021. Then it will travel the lower Danube to the Black Sea and between Amsterdam and Basel on the Rhine. 

In April, the company will christen its 16th ship, the Amadeus Imperial. Last year, it welcomed the Amadeus Star.
