New flagship river cruiser to launch for premium market

Cruising the Rhine and Danube, the brand new flagship river cruiser "Amadeus Silver" launches in 2013 to cater to the Premium market

April 2012: eWaterways (, the niche and river cruise experts, are delighted to announce a new river cruise vessel which will cater exclusively for the premium market. The flagship vessel will join the Amadeus fleet in April 2013 and her maiden voyage will be on the Dutch and Belgian waterways.

The famous Dutch "De Hoop" firm was commissioned to build the 135m river cruiser at its shipyard in Lobith, the Netherlands, where the keel has already been laid. The celebrated naval architects from "Art Line" have been entrusted with planning and designing the extra public spaces on board so that the best possible use is made of them. "Offering magnificent design coupled with guaranteed comfort this vessel meets with the customary high premium standards of the Amadeus fleet", explains Peter Smith, GM of eWaterways and sales partner of Lueftner Cruises for the past 4 years.

The AMADEUS SILVER will have a total of 78 enlarged standard cabins (16m²) and the 12 AMADEUS Suites (24m²), moreover, have 'walk-out' exterior balconies with their own seating groups, enormous panoramic windows and comfortable bathrooms with bath, separate WC and separate shower. The "River Terrace" open-air lounge in the bow will be a special feature of this ship. An unusual glazing solution offers passengers an open-air terrace on which to relax, offering good views of the river and scenery whilst still being protected from the wind. The new Café Vienna on board will tempt passengers with its Austrian coffee and 'Sachertorte' specialities, and for sports enthusiasts, the new design also has an unusual feature, as the AMADEUS SILVERS's spacious fitness studio spreads over two decks and thus has sufficient height to allow for the use of various training equipment.

Following her maiden voyage and for the rest of the 2013 season, the Amadeus Silver will operate between Amsterdam and Budapest with prices starting from $2999 per person for a 15 day cruise.


At full capacity, the Amadeus Silver will cater for 180 guests in a total of 90 luxuriously appointed cabins with flatscreen TVs and other mod cons to promise a memorable and refined cruise holiday. The Austrian hospitality and stunning décor is complemented with modern facilities including a deluxe salon, golf putting area, fitness room over two floors, onboard hairdresser and massage. Guests will enjoy exquisite dining, a convivial atmosphere and of course, Europe's most stunning vistas.
