MS AMADEUS SILVER 5 Star
Built in 2013
The Amadeus Silver is the 11th
vessel joining the luxurious Amadues fleet.
Extending the traditional 110-m length of the AMADEUS ships to 135-m
creates not only space for more cabins but allows for quite a number of
innovative new features in the premium market segment to come to
“The AMADEUS SILVER is indeed our first 135m ship and has been planned
to fit in wonderfully with the rest of the fleet. All our claims to
offer magnificent design coupled with considerable comfort can now be
fulfilled even with an increase in the number of cabins. We briefed the
planners specifically not to build a floating “bed palace” with the
greatest possible capacity but to design a ship that would do justice to
the increasing demand from all over the world for superb river travel
facilities. And they have done just that – to our customary high premium
standards”, explains Dr. Wolfgang Lueftner, founder and CEO of Lueftner
The famous Dutch “De Hoop” firm was as usual commissioned to build the
135m river cruiser at its shipyard in Lobith, the Netherlands, where the
keel has already been laid. The celebrated naval architects from “Art
Line” have been entrusted with designing and planning the extra public
spaces on board so that the best possible use is made of them.
The AMADEUS SILVER will have a total of 78 enlarged standard cabins
(16m²). Those on the Mozart and Strauss decks will have an innovative
form of French balcony offering the option of making the panoramic
window front (which extends across the whole cabin width) automatically
drop-down so that the cabin becomes a balcony in itself. The 12 AMADEUS
Suites (24m²), moreover, have ‘walk-out’ exterior balconies with their
own seating groups, enormous panoramic windows and comfortable bathrooms
with bath, separate WC and separate shower.
The “River Terrace” open-air lounge in the bow is a special feature of
this ship. An unusual glazing solution offers an open-air terrace on
which to relax and have good views of the river and scenery while
simultaneously providing protection from wind and rain. The new design
also has an unusual surprise for sports enthusiasts, as the AMADEUS
SILVERS’s spacious fitness studio spreads over two decks and thus has
sufficient height to allow for the use of various items of professional
The enormous Panorama Restaurant accommodates all the passengers at the
same time and offers particularly fine views of the river through
windows that reach down to the floor. The “Highlight Dinner” gourmet
dining idea already established on the AMADEUS Brilliant (2011) and the
AMADEUS Elegant (2010) under which guests enjoy an excellent private
dinner in the AMADEUS salon on special occasions, can also be arranged
on the new ship.
The new Café Vienna on board tempts passengers with its typically
Austrian coffee and ‘Sachertorte’ specialities.
Over and above all this, the 135m ship has all the pleasant touches for
which the AMADEUS river cruisers well known. As well as the impressive
sun deck with seating areas shaded from the sun, comfortable deck
chairs, golf putting green and giant chess game, there’s also the
AMADEUS Club with its library and Internet-access and a comfortable lift
connecting all the decks.
Lueftner Cruises, which was awarded the “Green Globe Certification
Highest Achievement Award” for its sustainable measures and economic use
of resources aboard its AMADEUS fleet in 2011, will naturally also be
aiming for optimal reduction of energy consumption and air pollution
with this new ship.
Maiden voyage on the Dutch and Belgian waterways.
The AMADEUS SILVERS’s maiden voyage will take place in mid-April along
the canals of Belgium and Holland. For the rest of the 2013 season it
will operate between Amsterdam and Budapest.
