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.
