We chose our individual tours while on board, so each of us chose only those tours in which we were interested. The Amadeus Queen was beautifully appointed and the crew was top-notch!!

    We were promised English however English was a second to German by a big margin. Wi-Fi was expensive. Some senior staff less than helpful.

    We loved the atmosphere on the boat. It was friendly, accommodating, and professional. The passengers and crew felt like a community. A good deal of this was due to Arno’s attitude, which was consistently positive. His organizational skills were also... Read more

    All very good. The staff were amazing. Food fabulous. Room very adequate. However, we were disappointed that we did not have a window that we could look out of though. We would have paid more if we had known, so that we could have been on the next floor up.

    Great service, great ship, great food! It was really good. Internet was too expensive for us: that's my only negative, but a very small point.

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.

    • 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.

    • 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.
