My sister and I had talked about taking a river cruise like this to see the Christmas Markets in western Europe for a number of years and we finally turned "someday" into December, 2022! To say it was an OUTSTANDING trip for us is an understatement! AMA delivered a great experience for us and exceeded ALL of our expectations. The ship was beautifully decorated for Christmas, we had a very ...

Our trusted travel agent recommended this as our first river cruise. We did the pre-cruise tour of Istanbul and the post-cruise tour of Prague as well. The cruise and the pre-/post- were excellent. No concerns or complaints at all. We've done several ocean cruises and there are pros and cons as seasoned travelers will recognize. We especially liked the constant scenery and no "at sea" days plus ...

Seriously, not sure why you would river cruise with any other company. They. Were. OUTSTANDING! We left feeling like we left our family onboard. Plus, the port stops were beyond lovely this fall. I really prefer land-only travel, but this cruise completely sold me on River Cruising. I am already booking my next. The attention to detail in the cabins was perfect. The customer service and ...

We did the 14 days cruise from Giurgiu to Vilshofen. It was a great experience, we met nice people and the on board personnel was exceptional. I want to mention, particularly, Dajana Jakovac our first cruise manager; Sergio, the front desk; Boris the dining room director, Djivko, the Hotel manager; Rui, the sport director, the captain and all the staff that was really incredible. We spent ...

This trip has been on our bucket list for a few years. The only thing that held us back was the price. But let me tell you. It was so well worth it. Everything was 1st class. From the transportation after the pick up at the airport, to the cabin, to the food, to the entertainment they brought on, to the shore excursions. One draw back I found was no place to put your luggage. The closet had 2 ...

After spending three days in Singapore and two days in Amsterdam which we thoroughly enjoyed my friend and I hailed a taxi and headed for the wharf to embark on our river cruise. We sailed on the Amabella from Amsterdam to Budapest and had an unforgettable voyage full of wondrous experiences, discoveries, taste sensations and much more. I read the review by Lovable and Daisy and agree with ...

My husband and I have enjoyed numerous ocean cruises, but thought we would try a European river cruise for a change. Luckily, his vacation days line up for a magical "Christmas Market" cruise from Prague to Budapest on the AmaWaterways Amabella. We began our holiday with four nights in romantic Prague in the Czech Republic. We also took an excursion to the lovely Cesky Kromlov. The cruise ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

My wife and a friend of hers thought a "Christmas Market" cruise would be a great idea. While I disagreed, my martyr complex compelled me to go. I have not been on a cruise of any kind in over 30 years and was happy to keep the record in tack. Needless to say the cruise exceeded my expectations in almost every way. The crew from the captain to our housekeeper were courteous, friendly, and ...

My 80+ mother and I were on the Romantic Danube cruise, our 2nd AmaWaterways cruise. Last year in October we did the Enchanting Rhine. We did our own pre-cruise in Prague so that mother could see things at her pace. Stayed at the Hotel Lippert and enjoyed Prague. We missed our transfer bus from the Hilton Hotel to Vilshofen. Got there late. However the Cruise Director Veronika -who was on the ...
