Amadeus River Cruises Coming to Canada


Exclusive Tours is bringing Amadeus River Cruises (formerly known as Luftner) to Canada, giving travel agencies additional river cruise options for clientele looking for a luxury onboard experience through the rivers of Europe.

Amadeus, which has 10 ships in its fleet, is a newly formed brand of Luftner Cruises, a family owned organization, established nearly 40 years ago and considered one of the most respected lines in the European river cruise market. Amadeus sails through all of the European rivers with English speaking staff offering “outstanding service levels and exquisite dining experiences.” Benefits to Canadian travellers include Canadian dollar pricing, luxury amenities and onboard experience, and new ships.

“We are absolutely thrilled with this new partnership with Amadeus River Cruises,” said Lori Copeland, director, Cruise Programming and Marketing. “The Amadeus product is outstanding, from the elegant and well-appointed ships to the exquisite cuisine and excellent service levels. With more than 30 years of experience in the European river cruise market, Amadeus comes to Canada with an exceptional product, and a very competitive price point.”

In the coming weeks, Exclusive Tours will offer agent training for those less familiar with the brand.
