Ship Facts: AmaLyra Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Our second cruise on AmaLyra

After a wonderful cruise on AmaLyra in 2012 to see the tulips in the Netherlands and Belgium we were enthused to go again on the same ship to travel on the Rhine River from Amsterdam to Basel, Switzerland.We traveled both times with a large group of folks from the midwest.

Uwe was the Cruise Manager and did a fantastic job organizing all our tours and making sure all was going well, keeping his friendly spirit all along the way.

Our room was just right, lots of room for storage, plenty of hot water in the shower. We had a french balcony so a lovely window to look out of , though most of the time you are not in your room.

We loved the tours each day, led by well educated guides and the VOX devices made listening easy while photographing the sights.

All the staff on the boat were friendly and willing to help in any way. We especially enjoyed being greeted when we returned from touring by warm towels to cleanse our hands and cups of lovely tea!

The food was served very attractively and there were many options like having a light meal in the lounge instead of the dining room . I enjoyed the 'tea' in the afternoon :) .

We took the post cruise option of 4 days in Switzerland and Uwe accompanied us on that portion as many took advantage of it. The weather was not the best, cloudy, rainy but we were glad we went anyway...loved the cities and the small towns in the countryside were beautiful.

Hope to travel again with Ama Waterways!
