First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Much enjoyed our first ever cruise. Great boat, food, tours and staff. Heloise was an excellent cruise manager. Would definitely recommend AMA and the Amora. The balcony room accommodations were very nice and spacious. We really appreciated the staff to guest ratio and felt we were well watched after for any needs or desires. Meals included god options for dishes native to local area as well ...

Regrettable Experience in "Cruising" All Around

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

"Cruise" dates: Apr 5, 2124 - Apr 13, 2024 Normandy to Paris, "Impressions of the Seine" Ships: AmaLyra and AmaDante Be aware that climate change is causing unusual extremes in the water levels of the Seine. Thus, we never got the "Scenic River Cruise" experience, instead being tied at anchor first in Le Havre then at Paris. All we got were bus rides ("Ama Busways"?). And we ...

Great First River Cruise

Our first river cruise was an enlightening experience. With two ocean cruises in our past, we were skeptical of the significant cost difference between a river and ocean cruise but soon realized you do get what you pay for. Far more intimate service, better food, and attentiveness on excursions. AmaWaterways is top notch and we couldn't say enough positive things about our cruise manager, ...

Rhine River Cruise - Water is Unpredictable, The Best Crew Matters

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

After cruising on a private barge in Dijon, France, and on an Ama Waterways competitor's ship on the Danube in 2019, our traveling friends began to focus on upgrading to Ama for our next trip. We decided on an AmaMora Winter Market Cruise from Amsterdam to Basel. Water levels on the Rhine vary from year to year, and in 2023, there was high water cascading into the river from Switzerland. ...

We booked the Paris & Normandy Cruise on 4th November 2023 after attending a very professional presentation at our local travel agency. I was impressed by the Scottish Business Development Manager's assurances that AmaWaterways always delivers an excellent guest experience. Although disappointed that there were several fairly significant changes to the original itinerary published in the ...

Our travel agent, who has been assisting us on various vacations over the past twenty years, highly recommended an AMA Waterways river cruise. We sailed on the AmaLyra and had a wonderful time. The ship was beautiful, the staff could not have been more courteous and helpful. The food was fantastic and presented by a very talented wait staff. The excursions were well thought out and the ...

Our original intent was to see the Normandie Beaches and MT Saint Michel, but we decided to roll it all into one with a river cruise from Paris and the add on post extension. We are glad we did. To see Paris correctly, one would need a week, but we still got to see the major sights and the Eiffel Tower lit up at night. The cruise also took us to incredible sights of castles, chateaus, gardens, ...

Our group of six cruised on this ship from Chalon-sur-Saone to Arles in October, 2023. We were attracted to this cruise for a variety of reasons but especially because it cruised through two legendary wine areas of France (Burgundy and Rhone Valley). Given the cost of the cruise, the experience was above average but no more. Fortunately, we interacted with three employees who stood out for ...

We are just home from our 5th cruise with AMA, and it did not disappoint , We were a group of 40, and I was what AMA called the pied piper. We promoted the cruise with a local French chef here in Portland. Many in the group utilized the AMA pre tour in Paris, and a large group went on the post tour to Barcelona. All in all the cruise was equal to, or better than any of our previous sailings. ...

My friend and I shared a room (two twin beds) for the week cruise and had a terrific time. We spent the first night in Bordeaux at the InterContinental Hotel and boarded the ship the next day. The Hotel is fabulous! Our quarters were small for two people, but we managed. We were on the top floor and with the "balcony" which was not really a balcony, just a nice window that could be ...
