    3.5 - Good

    The food buffet had exactly the same choices at breakfast and lunch each day, so since I didn’t care for any of those, this was an issue. There was always the option to order something off the menu though. The food overall was of average quality... not bad,... Read more

    Tourradar needs to ensure that cabin selection is better understood by prospective clients. We expected from your web site a cabin with a panoramic view or a sliding window. We were totally disgusted with the cabin allocation at the start of the cruise... Read more

    Arrived in towns often too early in the day. Only went on one excursion (Strasbourg) with good guide but it included a canal cruise which was a waste of time- boat was too low in canal to see much, reflections on boat meant couldn’t take photos. It was boring. Read more

    Due to the technical problem, the Cologne stop was cancelled, and we missed one of the most important stops. Then, instead of sailing down Mosel river we were bussed to the next port, we were also bussed to Speyer, while original itinerary implied that the... Read more

    The Rhine river cruise on the Amadeus Royal was lovely. The ports of call were all very interesting and beautiful. The ship staff was wonderful.

    Unprofessional staff starting from check-in and lasting for the duration of the trip. Same goes for the amenities – they are certainly not up to the standards set by the prices charged by Luftner. Deceiving cruise description on the company web-site,... Read more

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Is there a dress code on board?

      There is no strict dress code on board as Lueftner like their guests to feel comfortable, however, they do recommend elegant clothing for dinner and for special occasions.

In regards to what clothing to pack here are some recommendations: 

Comfortable, casual clothing is appropriate both onshore and onboard and we suggest lightweight clothing that can be layered. Shorts are appropriate for most tours, however long pants may be required for inside visits on some excursions. Your cruise manager will advise when and if this is required. Mix-and-match color schemes work best to help keep baggage light. You will find a significant amount of walking over uneven terrain during your time ashore. We recommend comfortable walking shoes with good ankle support. Sturdy sandals are another good option.

Don’t forget to pack a lightweight, waterproof jacket (preferably hooded) or even a heavier-weight wind-breaker for cooler temperatures. Also, keep in mind that the ship, motor coaches and other venues visited on our itinerary are air-conditioned and may be quite cool. We recommend you that you pack a lightweight sweater or long sleeve shirts and carry them with you on excursions.

    • How much luggage can you take on board?

      On Lueftner cruises there are no restrictions with luggage in regards to the number of bags each guest may bring on board the ships, however, please bear in mind storage space is limited, and it is recommended that each passenger brings only one checked bag and one piece of hand luggage.

    • Do you have laundry services available?

      Lueftner have an onboard laundry service which would be happy to take over the washing and ironing of your personal clothes for an additional fee. Please note that there are no dry-cleaning facilities on board.
