Our group of six cruised on this ship from Chalon-sur-Saone to Arles in October, 2023. We were attracted to this cruise for a variety of reasons but especially because it cruised through two legendary wine areas of France (Burgundy and Rhone Valley). Given the cost of the cruise, the experience was above average but no more. Fortunately, we interacted with three employees who stood out for ...

We chose this cruise because I have always loved France and this trip did not disappoint. We flew directly into Nice and we were greeted by a representative from AmaWaterways as soon as we got through baggage claim. A driver took us directly to the hotel and our Cruise Manager, Heloise, was at the hotel to check us in. She was with us for the entire trip and was amazing. We had a welcome reception ...

We joined a wine cruise sponsored by a California winery. This was our fourth cruise with Ama. As usual, the crew was wonderful, from the sailors to the kitchen staff. The food was delicious, the wine free-flowing. All of the local guides we had on our various excursions were knowledgeable and showed a passion for their heritage. Our captain was always smiling and happy to answer questions ...

My wife, friends, and I have sailed on various AMA boats on different itineraries. This was my third trip in Europe with AMA. The boat this time was the AMACello. I will take it on faith that the boat was launched in 2008 but you'd never know it. The paint was fresh - everywhere! Even the winches. The brightwork shone... brightly! The carpets were probably not new, but they looked new. ...

The ship was fantastic all the luxury of a large cruise line but way less people. The staff are able and more then willing to cater to your every need. The wait staff is on point. I have also had some of the best meals and deserts on board. Although the rooms are small they are very clean and have everything you need to enjoy your stay. The cleaning service was great and was always on top of ...

It was my first cruise with the AmaWaterways, but it will not be the last. I chose it because it was the only cruise that offered exactly the tour I wanted to take, including the possibility of spending three days in Paris partly on my own, but always backed up by the AmaWaterways personnel in case of need; and talking of that, Sonja always kept me under her wings, whether I was a few meters or ...

Wanted to see Provence when chance to see lavender in bloom. Chose AMAWaterways based on price. Travel solo and while still paid single supplement the promotion going was the best deal for the time could go. Did not do pre or post cruise package. Cruise only. Did pre-cruise time in Paris on own. Purchased transfer from Paris to Lyon from AMA. Worked great. Met group at hotel for transfer ...

Background information: I picked this cruise because I wanted to revisit the places I had been on a trip I made in 1964, and I took my 18 year old granddaughter with me because she wanted to see France and practice her French. She had been on 2 cruises prior to this and I had been on 30 cruises. One of my prior cruises was on AmaViola which was a newer AmaWaterways ship with a pool. The ...
