A Good Trip But Not Up To The Expectations Set

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on AmaVida

This was our first AMAWaterways cruise. We typically ocean cruise with Seabourn and when we decided to try a river cruise we asked our travel agent, Which river cruise company is closest to Seabourn? Without any hesitation she said AMAWaterways. We choose the Flavors of Portugal & Spain because we had never been to Portugal and the website touted great food and wine while sailing the Douro. Based ...

I needed a specific date so chose AMA after previously enjoying three river cruises with Tauck which is tops and a good recommendation from my travel agent. I did not expect things to be as nice as Tauck and I was pleasantly surprised. The ship (built in 2019) was lovely, the staff was outstanding, the itinerary wonderful, the food delicious and the scenery more beautiful than I had imagined. I ...

We chose this cruise after recommendation and I have say we were not disappointed with the Douro Valley. It was breathtaking., However, although the cruising experience was wonderful, the trips involved lots of coach travel and my partner does not travel well in a coach. Also most trips involved wine tasting which, after a while, become a little repetitive. Unfortunately, if one chose not to ...

Very disappointing as we were told to expect a 5-star experience

We chose this cruise as it was our first time on AMA Waterways and were told it was 5-star all the way, Several people told us it was better than Uniworld (our only other river cruise experience). Halfway through the cruise former AMA customers told us NOT to judge this cruise as it is the smallest of the AMA ships; so much for their initial 5-star assessment. We booked a A-stateroom (just ...

A Wonderful Cruise Experience

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This cruise was recommended by our Travel Advisor. The entire experience was wonderful. I'm glad we did a short river cruise (220 Km). We were in port every night which allowed us to sightsee, dine off the ship if we wanted. Every day was an event by bus to see the many different sights each city or town presented. We saw a varied things on our day trips for Cathedrals, Castles, Wineries. ...

This was our fifth Ama cruise and the first since Covid; I'm glad we went, but there were some issues that made me drop my rating to four stars. Let me start with the things that went right: the ship was comfortable; our room was big enough and had storage in the right places (and bedside power, for which we were grateful). Most of the crew was great to interact with, especially our room ...

After not traveling for 2 years we were eager to go. We did other amacruises in the past ( Danube, Vietnam). The experience was amazing, the experiences they gave us visiting quintas and gardens were very well organized and interesting. We also enjoyed Salamanca. Entertainment onboard was not great and the food mediocre. The worst was the service in the dining room, we never knew what our ...

This was our 9th river cruise but our first on AMA. We have also been on more that 45 ocean cruises as well. It is advertised as a deluxe cruise line, but we did not find it to be that. Portugal and the Douro River are beautiful and the tours for the most part were ok, but the food was not good, the breakfast buffet was good but the few lunches served on board and the dinners were not good. ...

The AMA staff from pre trip to post trip were great. Everyone on boat was very nice and accommodating. We loved the tours, loved the people, enjoyed the boat! Many passengers lost luggage and had to go shopping in Madrid for new outfits! The luggage finally made it but one passenger had to wait eight days. Unfortunately SO many people on our trip came down with Covid... We were never ...

My wife and I purchased a river cruise on Ama from Madrid to Lisbon departing April 5, 2022. The cruise was titled "Flavors of Portugal and Spain". The cruise featured the Douro River and the wine growing region on the river in Portugal. Our cruise included a pre-cruise Hotel stay in Madrid for three days and a post-cruise Hotel stay in Lisbon for three days. Our cruise vessel, AmaVida, ...
