ABOVE: The Amadeus Royal is one of 10 ships in the Lüftner Cruises fleet.

Lüftner Cruises is an Austrian company that operates a dozen modern river vessels under the "Amadeus" brand in Western and Central Europe. Cruising areas include the Danube, Rhine and Main, Rhne and Sane, and Dutch and Belgian waterways.

Lüftner's 2015 cruising season begins in March and runs through December, when it offers several Christmas and New Year's itineraries.

Unlike many river-cruising companies, Lftner doesn't just target American and Canadian travelers: It offers a European experience for passengers who don't want to leave Europe behind when they return to the ship at the end of the day.
