Bucket list cruise to see the Amazon River. The whole experience far exceeded all expectations. First time with Fred Olsen Right from the start everything was very well organised. The staff were all very attentive and it was service with a smile through out the whole cruise. Nightmare journey home not good having to fly from Manaus to Barbados to chance crew and refuel as we couldn't get off ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

My first ever cruise which was a trip with my parents and brother as a special family trip and despite my reservations I really enjoyed cruising. Infact I would go again. We had an inside cabin which was actually not too bad. I missed having no natural light but storage was fine and beds very comfortable. The ship, crew and trips were all excellent and I found very little to criticise. The food ...

We chose this cruise as a means to pursue something different. Having boated on rivers for many years we thought cruising the Amazon would be a good extension of the activity. We looked forward to seeing the cities, wildlife and the notion of seeing piranha fish. Embarkation was very smooth and they lived up to expectations. Our room was clean and well stocked with fruit and beverages. Out ...

We wanted to try a more upscale cruise line. Everything was more than we had expected. The food was excellent and all the staff everywhere on the ship were friendly, learned ur names and were eager to help. Our Butler was at our service and our room was always very clean and in order. We met some nice people from around the world and made some new friends. I must also mention there were no ...

We sailed from Barbados to Barbados on the Silver Spirit from 20th November to 8th December 2016 to the Amazon. Silversea is our favourite cruise line and we are loyal Venetian members. However standards have fallen considerably despite there being only 153 passengers on board. Silversea was known for staff who addressed passengers by their names. No more. A fellow passenger proved it after ...

My wife and I have just returned from 2 months on Adonia. Initially for the 28 Amazon cruise then 28 day western Caribbean countries followed by the Leeward Islands. The ship is getting very tired now, The paintwork, or lack of it, on the hull means when there is more than one ship in port we crept away with shame. It really is that bad. Fixtures and fittings and general accommodation ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Our arrival at Barbados was handled smoothly an the tours and port stops in Grenada and Trinidad were very good. We thought the ship was looking its age and not suprised is was due a refit.The food quality was average but service very good. The trouble started when we headed for South America. We were late arriving in Surinam due to Tides. I would have thought the tides would have been known ...

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

It was our first trip on a SeaDream cruise ship... and it was the company's first time (maiden voyage) visiting 'The Amazon.' First, it must be said, the absolutely BEST part sailing with SeaDream are it's wonderful passengers. They are by far the company's greatest asset, and some of the nicest, most fun-loving folks you will encounter on ANY cruise ship. And SeaDream crew members (on the ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

My husband and I have cruised 25 weeks primarily on windjammer tall sailing ships. We love the adventure and ability to get to know the other passengers and crew that a tall ship allows. We also have enjoyed cruises on small OAT ships and Grand Circle river boats. We started hearing about Azamara and all reports we read were positive so we decided to give try it thinking that it was a onetime ...
