Chose this ship because it was chartered by a classical music station. Plastic flowers in the hallways and in our cabin. If you can't use fresh, why bother? Chairs in dining room had tattered fabric that was fraying and hanging down underneath seats. Cocktails and "finger" appetizers were served without napkins. No decaf coffee at night served at dinnertime. Some of the staff were pleasant and efficient but others were not professional and rude. Corroded soap dish in bathroom.Ceiling in bathroom was so low that my husband who is 6' 1" tall could not stand up in the tub without hitting his head. Bathroom reminded one of a 1960's Wisconsin motel. Bath towels were worn and thin. Hard to believe this ship is only 7 yrs. old. It appears much older. No help from crew getting on or off ship in slippery, rainy conditions. In our opinion, one would be wise to avoid the Lueftner cruise fleet. Please note that our Enrichment Activities, Entertainment and Shore Excursions were all arranged by a land based company in the US. in partnership with the classical radio station and were independent of and not the responsibility of Amadeus Elegant thus the high ratings.

Tired ship

Cabin 304
Not a pleasant experience. VERY pricey for what one received.
