There’s the Amadeus Club, where you can sit back and take in unforgettable scenery with a refreshing cup of tea or coffee – which is available 24 hours a day – in hand, browse a small selection of books and newspapers, or play cards, games and puzzles. You can even catch up on your emails and social media on one of the desktop computers.
When the weather's fine, you can grab a drink from the Lido Bar out on Sun Deck before retiring to one of the many sun chairs to soak up the scenery and sunshine.
The Panorama Bar and Lounge is always a great place to relax, enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple and socialise, however it’s in the evenings when this stylish venue on Mozart Deck really comes to life.

Facilities & Amenities
The time you spend on board Brabant should be relaxing and carefree from the moment you embark, which is why the river boat features everything you need to refresh and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul and make the most of your well-earned time away from the stress and strains back home.
The Sun Deck is a great place to enjoy fresh air, top-up your tan and take in breathtaking scenery on one of the many sun chairs perhaps with a drink from the Lido Bar in hand. For the ultimate indulgence, you might want to treat yourself to a soothing massage or luxurious bath experience at the Vital Club on Haydn Deck. Next door to the Vital Club is the Hair Salon, where you can perfect your current look or perhaps try something new at the hands of the expert stylist.
If you want to ensure you stay in shape during your river cruise, you can do so at Brabant’s on board Fitness Room. It’s open around the clock, so you can work out to your heart’s content and at a time that suits you. You can also use one of the boat’s complimentary bicycles for a leisurely bike ride ashore – it’s a great way to keep fit while exploring the charming towns, cities and villages on your itinerary.
With so much time in port, river boats tend to have less activities on offer than ocean ships. However, despite Brabant being little smaller than many other river boats, that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to keep you entertained throughout the time you spend on board.
During the day you might choose to relax at the Amadeus Club, where you can play cards, games and challenge yourself with brain-teasing puzzles; lose yourself in a good book; and browse the internet to catch up with the latest news, or friends and family at home. Or of course you could simply sit back and marvel at the ever-changing countryside scenery with a cup of tea or coffee in hand.
Alternatively, you might prefer to spend your time out on the Sun Deck, where you can take in spectacular views over a drink from the Lido Bar; top up your tan on one of the many sun chairs; or even try your hand at shuffleboard and giant chess.
In the evening, be sure to take a seat at the stylish Panorama Bar to enjoy gentle live entertainment from a host of talented performers. Whether you’ve spent the day sailing along beautiful rivers or exploring ashore in a captivating town or city, you’re sure to savour soothing sounds of singers, pianists and other musicians here.
