By ,   April 5, 2018 ,   Cruise Industry

Corina Luftner, daughter of company's founders Dr. Wolfgang Luftner and his wife, Martina, smashed the champagne bottle against the newest riverboat of Amadeus River Cruises on Wednesday, April 4.

The 162-guest Amadeus Queen is considered the most stylish addition to the 14-ship fleet of Luftner family. While the ship falls into company's Silver class, its interior design is midcentury modern with a variety of shades of brown and gold along with pops of turquoise.

Also unlike the other ships of the class, Amadeus Queen boasts a lap pool with retractable sun roof situated at the aft and atrium-style central staircase allowing public areas to be flooded with light.

The 443 ft long Amadeus Queen has unique 188-square-foot staterooms that have a walk-in closet, uncommon feature in river cruise cabins; along with a drop-down window which functions as a kind of balcony if lowered. A number of lower-deck cabins can serve as connecting rooms for families sailing together.

A salon room and massage room are available on the lower deck; a bar & lounge area with outdoor seating and a fitness room at the ship's bow on the 3rd deck, and a restaurant on the 2nd deck. An elevator connects the 3 lower decks.

A highlight making the vessel distinct from its predecessors is its pool area that also serves as a bar & lounge.

Amadeus revealed it will add another ship to its fleet in 2019, 162-guest Amadeus Star. Both Amadeus Queen and Amadeus Star cruise on Rhine, Main and Danube rivers.
