Built in 2006, Amadeus Princess is one of the oldest ships in Amadeus Cruises by Lueftner's fleet, but it is well maintained and shows little sign of aging. Princess is smartly designed, with huge windows and warm spaces that make it ideal for interacting with fellow passengers without missing the beautiful scenery.
A favorite spot for passengers is the Amadeus Club, located at Princess' aft, which combines comfy chairs, adequate space, hot beverages and games. On cool days, it's a popular spot, where passengers can be found relaxing, playing games and putting together puzzles.
Ditch the diet before sailing: Food onboard Princess is a highlight, where special attention is paid to both presentation and variety. The ship gracefully integrates traditional passenger favorites with regional cuisine, which means there's something for every palate.
The ship is a great option for nearly any budget and travel style, as excursions can be booked a la carte so passengers who would rather explore on their own don't feel obligated to take ship-provided options. With prices at the lower end of the river market, the value-for-money of Princess is extraordinary -- the high-end touches are still there, but the experience is quite customizable.
Passengers on Amadeus sailings tend to book through travel agents, so partial ship charters are the norm rather than the exception. That means provided amenities, especially those in cabins, might change depending on how the cruise was booked.
