I went on this Rhine River Christmas Market cruise with a few friends. I had my own stateroom with a balcony and French balcony. The bathroom is positively huge and gorgeous, particularly compared to large cruise ships I’ve been on. We began in Amsterdam and had enough time to explore the city the day before we embarked. Each stop was beautiful and full of Christmas markets, castles, and ...

This was a Rhine wine cruise and we sailed with another couple. We had Juliet balcony suites that were, for a cruise ship, roomy. Everything is included in this package, so need to worry about drinks during lunch or dinner, excursions are included, special dining, cocktail hour, and all meals and snacks. The crew was pleasant, thoughtful, and attentive. The cleaning staff was discrete and ...

This cruise was a classical-music themed charter, sailing from Amsterdam to Basel. Having sailed on a river cruise before with another company, I had a good idea of what to expect. The AmaSerena crew certainly lived up to expectations in terms of service at the front desk, housekeeping service in the cabins, and the all-important role of the Cruise Director -- Bojan did a marvellous job of ...

My husband and I along with 10 other friends just returned from sailing 7 days on this ship. It was excellent in all ways. The food was great - especially the Chef's Table which was no additional charge for each of the guests to enjoy one ight onboard. The Cruise Director, Radostina (Radi) Markovic was fun, knowledgeable and tireless in ensuring that all the passengers had a good time and the ...

We chose this cruise to determine if a river cruise was a good fit for us. We have decided that for the money our bet is with the ocean cruises. If you are the type that can sit and enjoy a piano player or read. Then a river cruise is a good fit for you. We consider ourselves to be active and the River cruise just does not have enough activity. As for the rooms we upgraded to a balcony and ...

We cruised on the AmaSerena in July 2019. Our embarkation was very smooth. We were allowed on board early and had a light lunch available. Our room was excellent. We were in room 306 - we had a nice balcony and a very roomy bathroom. The dining experience was excellent. The food was great and plentiful. Plenty of options for a vegetarian in the party. We enjoyed our shore excursions, ...

Wanted to sail on the Rhine River. Great ship, service and scenery! Food was delicious and service impeccable! Cabin was so nice, small but great balcony and a place for everything. Our Cruise Manager, Marcus, was the best! He took great care of our group and made sure we were all where we were supposed to be. Entertainment was super as well as lectures about our destinations! Will certainly look ...

This was our second cruise with AMA and we cannoy imagine a river cruise with any other line. The service and amenities are top-notch. The quality of food surpassed even our previous cruise. Unfortunately we had terrible weather throughout our 10 day holiday, but AMA still made the cruise very enjoyable. The daily walking tours, though hampered by the weather, were interesting and informative. ...

We chose AmaWaterways Melodies of the Danube river cruise to celebrate our 42nd wedding anniversary, and we could not have made a better choice. We were to embark in Budapest, but unfortunately, due to low water levels on the Danube, Budadpest closed its ports, and the ship was in Vienna. This was at no fault of AmaWaterways. Although we were disappointed, AmaWaterways and our cruise manager, ...
