This experience was our first cruise and it was brilliant for a huge variety of reasons. All staff on board did an excellent job. It goes without saying that the ship was clean and the food on board was the finest I've ever had although for me, it was not the most important aspect of the trip because that's just how I am. To single out anyone would almost seem unfair on everyone else but I was the type of person who really appreciated the dedication that the cruise manager gave, it's like he was available 24/7. (Did he ever have time to sleep?) The fitness guy was fantastic but for all sorts of different reasons. His daily classes and his conversations with me have inspired me to help change my lifestyle and here I am, almost 3 months after the cruise, continuing to live a more healthy life. I have taken time to send this review so that I could find a moment to choose my words carefully and I didn't want to leave anyone out. The guides and entertainment professionals were all great characters and all had their charm and enthusiasm for what they were doing. They all had their own style and managed to convey a love for what they were doing which in turn helped me and my family to love the fun-packed, informative holiday through a number of interesting European places finishing in Amsterdam. Before travelling the overall cost sounded a lot to me. However, when you consider what we did and how there was such attention to detail by the staff, I am sure this represented excellent value for money. Read Less

I chose this cruise because I heard they cater to gluten free needs. They also catered to my dairy free needs. Much of the menus had foods I shouldn't eat, so they altered the food and made it special for me. Daily, they had gluten and dairy free deserts that were yummy and good looking. I had cookies, cakes, sorbet, and more. I feasted! They also had gluten and dairy free bread as well as afternoon cookies. They were very nice and accommodating. Also, I had a medical problem where I had to be taken to the hospital due to a contact lens getting stuck in my eye. Jeannette took me to the University hospital and stayed with me to translate. She was very helpful and nice. I would definitely choose to go with Ama again. My room was very nice, even though it was on the bottom floor. I had two big windows and could see out plenty well. I didn't feel claustrophobic at all. The tours had small groups from 4 to 15 each, rather than large groups of 40, which made it really nice and the tour leaders were great. Read Less

We have just completed an APT 8 day enchanting Rhine cruise and it was very ordinary from and activity and tour perspective, the ship, crew, food and cabins were all excellent however the cruising and on shore activities were badly organised and managed. Don't believe all of the marketing materials on these cruises as you only have about 2 days of good cruising and the rest is industrial and farm land in a very busy shipping channels, also the age group of most people is 60 plus. The on shore guided tours are poor as you are cattle in and onslaught of every ship arriving at the same time and there are many of them and lots of poor guides. If you have mobility issues I would say don't do it as it can be very tough and no one will look after you if you haven't got some good travellers with you. Our trip of a life time was destroyed by this cruise and I would hate it to happen to anyone else so please research carefully before investing. Read Less
