An Outstanding River Cruise Experience

Review for AmaLucia to Europe - River Cruise

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

After a two year delay due to the pandemic, my partner and I finally were able to take our long anticipated River Cruise. Having taken past cruises on large ships, it was great to be on a smaller ship with about 120 folks. We arrived in Amsterdam two days before sailing and the Ama tour of the city was very good. The hotel where we stayed ( Barbizon Palace), was very nice and comfortable with very ...

Although no stranger to cruising this was our first river cruise in Europe. We took up Ama's offer for a free cruise for Front Line Workers. We enjoyed every minute of this cruise and its ship, the Ama Certo. Upon arrival we were made to feel welcome. Our stateroom was excellent and we enjoyed sailing with the windows open at night. We were fortunate that the weather was comfortable and the ...

Once In a Lifetime Cruise - Such A Let Down

My sister and I chose this cruise to celebrate our 50th birthdays (both of which happened during COVID shutdown) and were so excited for this once in a lifetime experience together! We had both cruised larger ships (mostly Disney for myself and my family) over the past several years, but not together and thought this more intimate cruise style would suite us very nicely. This particular cruise ...

Beautiful Ship - Big Disappointment

We are still onboard and will disembark tomorrow. This is a chartered cruise, and we are with a group of 74. The ship is new and beautiful. The common areas and the cabins are impeccably clean. The staff, for the most part, are very nice, friendly and helpful. Several of the passengers became ill onboard, I’d say around 30-40%. This was brought up to the cruise manager, Jonathan, early on in ...

Not for families

Staff and ship exceptional- not doubt. However this cruise is really not geared for people under the age of 70. We brought our teens ages 15 and 17 and they were incredibly bored. Although AMA waterways does not market to families and are very clear that cruise intended audience may be older- my husband and I - in our 50's found it overall boring as well. No effort made to engage teens at all. ...

I am in my early 50’s. Have been lucky to travel extensively . Have done 6 ocean cruises, many all inclusives and city travel. This was our first river cruise. We chose AMA as our travel agent recommended them due to their level of service, amenities and included tours. We chose the itinerary as we were able to see the Netherlands, Germany, France, Switzerland in one week. Wanted to see the ...

We are long time cruisers and decided to try river cruising. Unfortunately we chose AMA for this canal sailing to Belgium and Netherlands. Checkin was easy. My first floor room was as expected, small but adequate. My only room complaint is there seems to be some mold in the room as I often had allergy symptoms only while in the room, my only allergy is to mold. The personnel was ...

We previously sailed from Amsterdam to Budapest on Ama Viola in 2019 and enjoyed it so much we wanted to take another cruise with Ama. Nikola was an excellent cruise manager for our trip. The ship's crew was consistently excellent with special kudos to Elena's beverage service. Cruise highlights for us included Keukenhof Gardens, Kolsch beer tasting, the Moselle River portion, and ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

Our first cruise of any kind could not have been a more enjoyable experience. Our river cruise set sail from Amsterdam and made stops in Hoorn, Middelburg, Ghent, Antwerp, and Rotterdam before returning to Amsterdam. The AmaSerena was beautiful, spotless, and comfortable. The crew was incredibly attentive ... always eager to help ... always with smiling eyes (masks were required in public places ...
