The first 8 days were changed to the AmaVenita because of low water levels around Nurenburg...and changed to the Ama Reina for the last half of the trip....no problem there. Day one...we entered our cabin 204, Catagory T+ which gave us an outdoor balcony plus a French Balcony. Very nice, except that another ship was moored right along side us. so - no view except of a neighbouring cabin about 10cm from our balcony. This was to happen frequently during the trip, sometimes with ships moored on both sides of us for hours. When you consider that we paid $22,000 for the 15 days (airfares extra) - anyway -I decided we were quite often a 5star club sandwich. We were told by staff members that this was only going to get worse as more ships enter the tourist market in river cruising in Europe! O.k day nine - first morning on the AmaReina, we are still sleeping, it is 6.45am and in walked the cleaners to clean our room!!!! I did complain and was told that they got the wrong room - not acceptable , by my standards. We had also been led to believe, from the T.V commercials, brochures etc that most days we would be able to walk into towns/villages in our leasure time - this does not happen....mostly we were moored too far from towns, even for tours etc we were taken by bus, sometimes up to two hours, to get to the advertised daily excursion. Budapest was a very welcome exception - we were actually moored very close to town. Meals were plentiful, and very good. BUT, you did need to eat on call, no time to relax -because the days events were so over organized, be back at a certain time, lunch is now! ship is sailing now! Nurenburg was advertised that we could VISIT the Nazi War Courts - not so - we had this building pointed out to us as we went passed on the bus!! Just one of many advertised mis-informations in the brochures. Back to day one - arriving at Amsterdam airport we were met by an APT driver, however he picked up 2 others as well as us so we did not get the promised porterage - and that airport is huge.... The good points...well, if we had not done the trip we would not know that organized, regulated holidays are not for us. We will stick to our usual fly/drive holidays in Europe Entertainment on board was very good. Staff were so attentive that is became quite difficult to say 'good morning' a few dozen times. There was a 'gentle walk' available with most shore excursions - we took advantage of them..... Oh, Well, now I wonder if you will print this. I also wonder at only good reviews, there were many people on board with similar complaints....... Read Less

Just got back off the Amareina after a lovely relaxing week on the Danube, ship is new and very clean, staff are very friendly, nothing was a problem and they were always smiling, what a good bunch, Kate the Manager was lovely too. The food was amazing, seen some fascinating places, met some lovely people, cabins spacious, we were #306 and it was a great location, never got disturbed, bed so comfy and bathroom great size, brill shower. The meals well what can I say ....... Beautifully presented, always hot and very tasty, plenty of choice, couldn't fault! No problem embarking or disembarkation, very well organised. 5 star from start to finish, I would recommend this cruise in a flash. Now for the down side, NOT a criticism at all, just how we felt, We would of liked to have cruised in the day time a bit more, we liked seeing all the cities, but the day we did Melk and Durnstein and cruised in the middle was the best, so relaxing....... I guess next trip we should check out the itinerary more! A bit too much coach trips for us Read Less

My husband and I just returned from a Xmas Market cruise on the Rhine River on the AMAReina. It was our first river cruise after 20 ocean liner cruises (the last one - Celebrity from Venice to Barcelona). We loved everything about the cruise, AMA and the ship. It was a wonderful time. The Cruise Manager John Riley was thorough, accessible and witty, handling all of our needs with follow-through and good spirit. The ship was magnificent with large cabins and the largest shower we've ever had. The schedule was relaxing with plenty of options for shopping the markets on our own coupled with tours meeting the needs of different pace-levels of passengers. I had read how excellent the food and wines were on AMA and was not at all disappointed. The special dining restaurant was icing on the cake. I especially loved the view from the cabins, always seeing the shoreline and the smoothness of passage. We had plenty of time to visit the markets but also tours were planned as another option. We really liked how many other passengers we met since interesting folks always seemed to be in the lounge. The whole trip was a very special treat and I would never consider another river cruise line to try - AMA was perfection. Read Less
