Amadeus Princess and Silver River Cruise Ships



Ms Amadeus Princess river ship


Launched in March 2006, the MS Amadeus Princess is the most luxurious vessel in the Austrian  fleet. The unusually large passenger cabins and suites all have outside views and are beautifully appointed. Cabins on the Haydn deck have a large picture window and cabins on the Mozart and Strauss decks have French balconies. Suites have a lounge area with comfortable seating, desk, minibar and safe. All cabins and suites have a private shower and toilet, colour satellite television and video, individual climate control and direct-dial telephone. The well designed public areas are spacious and include a single-sitting dining room offering international cuisine, a lounge and bar, Lido bar, shop and hairdressers. On the top deck there are lounger-chairs and spacious observation areas.

The spacious passenger cabins and suites are on the outside and are very tastefully furnished.

The cabins on the Mozart and Strauss deck have, over their whole width, windows with sliding doors (French balconies).

The cabins on the Haydn deck have the same dimensions and equipment as those on the other decks, but their windows are smaller. If desired, the two beds can be made up separately.

The suites have, as well as a sleeping area, an additional lounge area with comfortable seating, desk, minibar and safe. The sofa bed can, if needed, be turned into a third bed

Ms Amadeus Silver
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 fruition.

“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 Cruises.

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 training equipment.

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.
