Review of MS Amadeus Star

MS Amadeus Star cruise ship is the 15th riverboat of Luftner Cruises (Austrian cruisetour company / shipowner). Launched in 2019, Star and the sistership Amadeus Queen (2018) were specifically designed for itineraries on Danube, Main and Rhine rivers, as well as on the Belgian and Dutch waterways.

The new Luftner vessel follows the award-winning model of Amadeus Silver ships but provides further innovative developments. The concept of the spaciousness of the cruise line has been maintained, including not only generous public areas but spacious cabins: a total of 12 large suites impress with outdoor balconies and cozy reading corners while the 69 standard staterooms mainly feature luxurious bathrooms and panoramic window fronts that can be automatically lowered to form French balconies.

Shipboard facilities

The Panorama Dining Room boasts unforgettable views whilst passengers enjoy delicious meals. A new onboard highlight is an indoor pool, with a roof that can be opened in fine weather. The area may be used for informative talks and cinema showings in the evenings.

Its specially designed glazing offers a great view of the passing scenery while also providing protection against rain and wind. Other popular onboard amenities are the Amadeus Club, Panorama-Bar and Lounge, Sun Deck with deck chairs, Hair Salon, Massage Room, Fitness Room. The Amadeus Club is the perfect spot in which to share day's pleasures with a glass of wine and relax to the gentle sounds of classics and jazz. Guests can also send their greetings to their loved ones at home from the Internet stations in the Club.

MS Amadeus Star Wiki

On March 9, 2018, Luftner Cruises confirmed the shipbuilding order for a second 164-passenger boat and its name - "Amadeus Star". The sistership Amadeus Queen was launched in April 2018. Both riverboats feature indoor swimming pool (located aft on Mozart Deck 3, with recessed outdoor sun deck) and the adjacent Amadeus Club (company's new "wine cellar bar" concept).

These new class ships were designed to target younger, millennial-generation cruise travelers. For the new project, Luftner partnered with Zaven Global (US-based incentive travel and promotion company) for creating / training brand influencers via "experiential events". On each voyage, a celebrity influencer serves as host while sharing the cruise tour experience with her / his social media followers. The influencer's job is also to organize a special onboard program focusing on trendy topics (nutrition, dieting, fitness, weight loss, healthy living, etc).

By this project, onboard dining times and food menus were changed, as well as the types of tours and excursions ashore. Among the changes implemented were the open-seating dinner (your-time dining between 6-9 pm), various healthy food menu items, mobile apps available for millennial passengers (to plan their own excursions), yoga instructors on the ships (leading outdoor / Sun Deck lessons, also acting as lifestyle guides), themed onboard activities.

Note: You can see the CruiseMapper's list of all river cruise ships and riverboats in the "itinerary" section of our River Cruises hub. All companies and their fleets are listed there.
