The excursions and local guides were excellent and AMA staff was professional and accomodative. We were disappointed by the quality of the food based on our past pre-COVID experiences with AMA. Not sure we would book another trip on AMA.

The staff was wonderful, always courteous and helpful. Loved all of the different foods served on board. The Chef's Table was a wonderful way of tasting new foods! The sites we saw were unbelievable! So much to learn and experience. I was a bit surprised with our cabin, I was expecting an outdoor balcony, we had a full length window instead. In the end it really did not matter, we were still able to see all of the beautiful views from our cabin and the sun deck.

we traveled with another river cruise line several years ago and much prefer ama waterways.

Our cruise was excellent. A perfect choice for us.

This trip with AMAWaterways was beyond outstanding from start to finish. The ship, crew, meals, and excursions were all excellent and exceeded my expectations. I loved it.

We were very well pleased with AmaWaterways, so much so that we made a deposit on a future trip with them. The ship was beautifully decorated for the Christmas market cruise. The tour manager and the ship's crew were highly professional and friendly. There were daily activities both off and on the ship to keep us entertained. The food and drink were wonderful. The itinerary was exactly as described.

AMA Waterways is indeed a first class operator. The shipboard staff were consistantly very helpful and courteous. The food was outstanding, plentiful and with many alternative dishes. Everything was very clean. The activities for the ports/cities visited were well planned with alternatives depending on whether one wanted a routine walking tour, agressive tour or biking tours. We enjoyed concerts, local entertainment, and scenic tours with local guides that were very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. We cannot say enough about the experience on the AMA Waterways ship. Every situation was anticipated and accommodated. We look forward to the oppportunity to take another cruise on AMA Waterways.
