This cruise was exceptional. This cruise line thought of everything, our guides were well informed and kept a caring eye on their daily wards. We discovered pottery villages, lacquer basket making, hand woven silk textile mill... the ... Read more

I chose this cruise because I was travelling with my elderly mother and we liked the idea of unpacking once. Our travel agent assured us that APT would organise a wheelchair for mum to use for the excursions and the staff/crew were ... Read more

This was our first, and definitely not the last. Been on the big ship cruises many times, and did not know if we would like this type of cruising. We now prefer it. The ship is immaculate, comfortable and has everything you need. The ... Read more

This was our first river cruise. It was luxurious in all the right ways. Ama gave us features that we needed and used, without others (like climbing walls) that we haven't used on ocean cruises. We would love to take another cruise with ... Read more

The trip down the Rhine River with stops at 2000 year old German cities along the way and too many castles to count was stimulating and beautiful. The ship was new, extremely comfortable, food healthy and light ( although one could eat ... Read more

Everything about this cruise and ship was perfect. The ship is amazing. The accommodations are wonderful, the dining is out of this world and the service is second to none. The crew to a person seems to be truly interested in you having ... Read more

While my husband has never been on a cruise, I have been on several ocean cruises. Cruising on AMAWaterways beat them all. Because there are only 140 passengers, you get to know each other and the staff and crew. All of the staff and ... Read more

My husband and I are veteran ocean cruisers, but this was our first time on a river. There were many differences, most of them wonderful--in fact, we enjoyed our Amadolce experience so much, we were reluctant to turn in our keys! The ... Read more
