Disappointing

Chose this SAGA cruise for the right duration and destination. Ship crew , including the captain , very surly on the whole . Housekeeping had to be asked to supply things like toilet rolls and box of tissues . Sewage smell in the lower corridor most of the time , although it did not penetrate the cabin . Had the feeling that the serving staff were on piece rate , next courses left on the table ...

Cruise was part of a 19 day trip but was glad we only had 9 nights on this ship. My own fault for not reading the fine print - was on the Haydn Deck with only a VERY small window (expecting a panoramic window) with NO view and water lapping outside. The cabin was small and stuffy with only basic amenities. Rooms were clean but had to ask for the bed linen to be changed after 4 nights. The ship ...

Booked 21 day tour of Balkans through Trip A Deal Australia which included 9 day cruise on Amadeus Royal. From the time we stepped on board crew were very welcoming & friendly from then until the end. Food & service were 5 star and amenities in the ship were fantastic. We visited some great countries and optional excursions were great and very reasonably priced. All the crew were extremely, ...

Substandard and Low Quality

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I would never sail on a Lueftner Amadeus cruise again. No hot water for the shower for 4 of the 6 mornings. Rooms unbearably hot - several of us had to leave the dinner table to cool off outside during meals, despite repeatedly begging for them to turn down the heat. Always late into port, which meant that our land tours were rushed and cut short. The "hotel" manager was absolutely rude about ...

We chose this cruise because we needed a place we had never been and had used the same college to arrange one for us in the past. We embarked in Fiteste, Romania, and disembarked in Vienna for a 9 day, 1200 mile Danube trip in October 2016. The staff was superb. The rooms comfortable, large, and perfectly maintained. The bathrooms were much larger and easier to use than any boat I had been on. ...

My wife and I decided to start our vacation with the Luftner option to visit Prague before our cruise. We arrived at the Luftner selected Prague Hotel and was immediately disappointed that there was no Luftner representative. Instead, the hotel staff told us to read the message taped to the desk in the hall way. The message told us that we would have dinner catered by the hotel later in the day. ...

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 ...

The Amadeus Royal is an old cruise boat that has been recently renovated. However it falls short of being described as luxurious. The cabins are small. It was good to be able to get fresh air, but the "French balcony" was only a small sliding window less than a metre wide. The main lounge had very uncomfortable seating. There were some armchairs but not enough for all guests. The restaurant was ...

We travelled with a Gate 1 arranged river cruise on the Amadeus Royal on the Danube from Nuerenberg to Budapest this year. Gate one arranged cruises are cheaper than others, and there is a reason for it. The ships they use (from Lueftner, in our case) are older, in need of modernization, not as attractive an interior, old carpet, tired looking cabins, almost no space for your clothes, etc. This ...
