REVIEW:      I am back from my May 23rd, AmaDolce Taste of Bordeaux.    Lets just say I'm glad I sailed on AmaStella and AmaPrima previously.  If this was my first Ama sailing I would never have sailed her again.    The bad:  The food offerings were far different from my previous experience.  There were two main entrees in the evening to chose from, one fish and then one meat.  Then had ...

If you read this review, you should also read the reviews by ChrisChicago June 2016 and disappointed traveller October 2016 regarding the Scenic Diamond Bordeaux cruise. ChrisChicago, was in the same premium/ over priced cabin as we were. This was our fourth Scenic holiday, the first three were wonderful experiences, close to faultless and we have recommended all three to others. This cruise, ...

A Burt Wolf hosted cruise

We specifically chose this cruise, as we watch him on PBS, and because this cruise was billed as a hands-on cruise with Burt Wolf, who would be with us in some of the towns and host special events in some towns. However, the itinerary changed after we boarded and although Burt Wolf was there, he only gave short, 15 minute or so talks on his upcoming show plans, before the dinner hour. On three ...

This was the third holiday we have had with Scenic and overall it was the most disappointing. Whilst the Scenic Diamond was to the usual high standard and the crew helpful and accommodating we were happy to disembark. We felt that Scenic had misrepresented what we could expect. The river was dirty and muddy and there was little or no scenery along the banks. Our main complaint was the low ...

Excursion Confusion

We knew going into things that this was a difficult itinerary because of the tides on the river. We found the ship to be clean and comfortable, and the staff were very good. Service most times was excellent, but there were constant issues with service in the dining room. Several nights were seated by the staff, and the rest of the time it was seat yourself. It was very confusing. We often didn't ...

First, this was our 3rd cruise with UniWorld. Last September we did the Avignon to Lyon on the SS Catherine. It was fabulous! The ship had only been in service 5 mos at the time and everything was terrific. I reviewed that cruise as well. The second cruise was part of the Majestic of France two cruise package. We began on June 14 in Paris to Normandy on the River Baroness--very small cabins, ...

We took our first river cruise on the AmaDolce Bordeaux cruise. I should have checked the amount of cruising because there was very little scenic cruising on this route. To me, this river cruise is just assisted living on a ship. Your meals are prepared for you at specific times and you go on excursions on large buses. We're not quite at that age, yet. If you like river cruises, then I would ...

We were on a wine cruise. The ship is lovely, the staff fabulous. We enjoyed the cities and tours we took of wineries and sites. The cruise director Chris was very good. I generally enjoyed the food but after a few days the food started to taste the same. My last meal of a white fish and risotto was not very good at all. My biggest issue, food handling. I was surprised upon arrival on the ...
