Covid has provided many perils for traveling these days, but we truly enjoyed the AMA cruise mainly due to the great expertise of the Cruise Director, whom we had done a cruise with prior. He is amazing at taking a problem and doing a quick solve with the guests not even being aware. There were lots of changes and unexpected challenges that he did work arounds for and the whole crew was fantastic. This cruise is one that is done infrequently compared to AMA's repertoire, but is most delightful and great little towns to see. Highly recommend!

This was my first river cruise, and my only regret is that I've waited as long as I have to do this. The entire AmaWaterways crew -- from the ship captain all the way to the housekeeper -- were outstanding. The ship itself was beautifully decorated for Christmas, and the cabin was well organized and extremely comfortable. I appreciated the variety of available shore excursions, and the local guides were excellent. I'm looking forward to cruising again many times with AmaWaterways.

AmaWaterways provided a wonderful experience - the food, the staff, the excursions and the ship were all top notch!

Food choices and flavors were excellent. Boat decor was upscale and clean. Staff was cheerful efficient and very pleasant. Shore excursions were well managed and local guides excellent. All in all a wonderful cruise experience.

Enjoyed this River Cruise -- will probably do another one!
