Amadeus River Cruises christens new flagship Amadeus Cara

Lüftner Cruises

Amadeus Cara was christened on the banks of the Rhine against the backdrop of Cologne Cathedral

Amadeus River Cruises christened its new five-star flagship vessel, Amadeus Cara, in Cologne, Germany, on 29 June.

The 135-metre-long vessel was officially inaugurated by godmother Anna Lüftner, director of digital marketing for Amadeus River Cruises. Following the ceremony, Lüftner and other invited guests enjoyed a short cruise on the Rhine onboard the ship.

Built at the TeamCo Shipyard in the Netherlands, Amadeus Cara can accommodate a maximum of 163 guests in cabins with expansive windows. Onboard highlights include the River Terrace bar at the bow, the Amadeus Club at the stern, the Café Vienna in the lobby area and the Panorama Bar with dance floor. In addition, the ship has a wellness area with massage and a fitness room, as well as a sundeck with a lounge that can be used at all times, even on stretches of river with low bridge crossings.

In addition, Amadeus Cara features Green Award-winning technologies and systems, including an engine that significantly reduces carbon dioxide output and an air filter system to improve onboard hygiene.

Amadeus Cara will sail under the German flag, offering cruises on both the Danube and the Rhine. The ship’s inaugural voyage departed from Cologne on 2 July, taking guests to Rüdesheim, Wertheim, Würzburg, Bamberg and Nuremberg, as well as Regensburg to Passau in Bavaria.
