Frequently Asked Questions

    • 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.

    • Is wi-fi available?

      Wireless Internet access is available on all Amadeus ships and is provided in all public areas of the ship.

    • 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.

    • What languages are used onboard?

      The languages on board all Amadeus ships are German and English. Unless otherwise stated, announcements, notices and trips during the cruise are made in both languages.

    • What is it like to dine onboard?

      You will enjoy an open seating and will start your day with a generous continental breakfast buffet to which the staff will be pleased to add various freshly cooked egg dishes straight from the kitchen. For lunch you can choose between varied menus and buffet specialities in the Panorama-Restaurant or a light lunch alternative in the Panorama-Bar. For dinner, Lueftner offers a carefully composed 4- to 5-course menu and vegetarian dishes are always available if required. Complimentary hot coffee and tea are available all day for your enjoyment.

    • I have a special dietary requirement can this be catered for?

      There is always a vegetarian option for all meals on board the ships, however, if you have other special dietary requirements or suffer from food allergies, please inform your cruise specialist at the time of booking. On a request basis, Lueftner's chefs will certainly provide special dishes suitable for people with conditions such as lactose or gluten intolerance and will do their very best to offer an alternative to every guest where required.

    • What payment methods are accepted on board?

      You can make payments by cash, bank card with Maestro symbol and credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club and American Express) on board. The currency on board is the Euro; however, the following currencies are accepted to settle your on-board account if needed: Swiss franc (CHF), British pound (GBP) US dollar (USD) and Norwegian krone (NOK).
