  3. Amadeus Royal
The Amadeus Royal is a mid-sized riverboat that has been kept in amazing shape. Everything was clean, recently painted and the crew was very attentive and fun to be around. The ship holds approximately 120 passengers and has a crew of 40. She has a 1.4 meter draft and was able to make it up river to Passau when the larger boats (1.6 meter draft boats) had to turn back or transfer to a smaller boat. The only port we could not make to was Regensburg and Lueftner Cruises chartered a bus and bused us upriver (1.5 hours) and bought us lunch. The Amadeus Royal is available for charter and the tour group we were with, chartered the entire boat, so the tour company (Alki Tours) took care of all shore side activities (and did a great job!). The weather was perfect so most people spent a lot of time topside. But during evening the lounge could accommodate all 120 of us but it was a bit crowded. The food was good, but dinner usually took 2 hours to complete. The breakfast buffet was pretty much the same everyday but you could order off the menu for some variety. The whole crew and especially the cruise director (Andrea) did a great job making sure everything was to our liking. It was a wonderful cruise.

Cabin Review

Cabin 303
This is one of the four suites on the boat. It had lots of room and a great location on the boat. But keep in mind, when in port, these boats do raft up next to each other - so you may end up having your view blocked by another boat.
