What is the connection (if any) between Amadeus Waterways http://www.amadeuswaterways.com and Lueftner cruises http://www.lueftner-cruises.at/en-index.shtml
All of Luefner's ships have the name "Amadeus" in them but the only ship that seems to be in Amadeus fleet is the Amadeus Symphony which I assume is the same ship. Does Luefner own the ship and Amadeus is leasing it or vice versa?
I don't understand the connection between the two companies - or maybe there isn't a connection.
Anyone know any details?
I did a quick search of this forum and found that on June 6 Steamboats answered a similar question. She said:
"The Amadeus Princess is owned and operated by the Austrian cruise company Lueftner:
Lueftner also owns a boat called Amadeus Symphony which looks identical to the MS Symphony operated by Amadeus Waterways. As the Lueftner website doesn´t show any cruises of the Amadeus Symphony and - as far as I remember - the brochure doesn´t either I assume that this is the same boat and Lueftner has chartered it to Amadeus Waterways.
But the Amadeus Princess and the Amadeus Symphony are definitely different boats."
