My husband (33) and I (29) were looking for a unique and different honeymoon than the typical beach vacation. We found river cruising from our travel agent and felt it was the perfect option for us. We stayed 3 days before in Budapest and absolutely fell in love with the city. We got on the boat right at check in on Sunday and found the ship in absolutely beautiful condition. Our room was spotless and so welcoming. We were surprised with an upgrade from AmaWaterways to a bigger stateroom. We felt so comfortable in the space. At every turn, the ship was spotless and so inviting. The grand reception area was stunning, especially when decorated for the holidays. The dining was incredible; breakfast was a large buffet everyday with made to order omelets and several other options you could order from the kitchen. Lunch was something new and unique every day with a combination of served dishes, carved dishes and several options on the buffet. Dinner was a beautiful 4 course meal every single night. The service in the dining room was top notch. Every option was elevated yet approachable. There were several options that were offered at every meal including chicken breast, steak and salmon if you were looking for something simper. There was no shortage of snacks/food on the ship. There was a simple breakfast put out before and after the main breakfast hours for those that got up earlier/later. Where were small bites after lunch and again before dinner. Unlimited beer and wine was included with lunch and diner and sparkling wine with breakfast. There was also a sip and sail cocktail hour that included several cocktails including a specialty cocktail of the day. For a week straight, I felt like my wine glass was never empty. There are dedicated beverage servers in the dining room that generously fill your glass from the second you walk in to the moment you leave. One of the parts I enjoyed the most was to have a glass of wine poured right before we were leaving dinner and take the glass up to the sundeck or our balcony to enjoy. We thought the price of beer/wine/cocktails was fair outside of lunch and dinner. We found several activities that were perfect for us that included active hikes and bike rides through the cities. There were several types of tours offered throughout the cruise that included gentle or easy walking, a moderate and a fast/active walking pace. We never felt bored or held back on the tours. There was local entertainment at least 3 nights of the cruise that was so enjoyable. Local singers and performers we both enjoyed. We did experience low water levels on the 2nd to last day of our trip and ended up having to turn the boat around and sail away from our disembarkation place (Nuremburg). Our cruise manager, Camille, did a wonderful job explaining what was going on and I swear, she worked for 30 hours straight to ensure a smooth disembarkation for everyone. Overall, we were spoiled from the moment we arrived and felt like royalty for the week we were on board. The staff actually takes the time to get to know you and learn about you. All week, we had staff members come up to us and wish us a happy honeymoon and get to know us more. We were surprised one night with a special dinner set just for us complete with champagne and a beautiful cake to celebrate. Being on the younger end of the age spectrum of the ship, people kept asking if we were bored and we both can confidently say absolutely not. There was so much to do to keep us busy and exploring the entire time. We're already looking forward to our next river cruise with AmaWaterways! Read Less

This was our first river cruise. We explore Prague prior to the cruise and enjoyed the excursions offered to us there. We found the cruise highly organized, the staff were friendly and they tried to anticipate our needs. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly with the bus taking us from Prague to Nuremberg with a tour and stop along the way to stretch our legs. All the tour guides that took us on our variety tours were well versed and entertaining. We had one shore excursion cancelled due to the ship needing to sail due to receding water levels. But when we stopped at a new pier, our cruise manager quickly organized a shore excursion at the nearby town for those that wished to go. For unexpected change of plans, the cruise manager was quick to alter itinerary and kept us informed. They offered a variety of excursions for varying walking types. Food was great. Cabin was small but clean and lovely. I would recommend this cruise to others wishing to get a taste of some of the countries lining the Danube. Read Less

This cruise carried on for a second week with approx. 25 guests staying on for the second week. The trip started in Nuremberg and ended in Budapest. We're not regular cruisers and joined friends for their 40th wedding anniversary and his 60th birthday. We were in suite 330, category C and the room was fine (small but manageable). The shower was great (much better than our Azamara experience). We brought our work out clothes but the gym is so small and limited, we only used the bikes/treadmill/rowing machines a couple of times. There's a small number of hand weights available. Perhaps the hair dressing salon could be converted for the addition of a universal gym. There is a wellness person on board and he has stretching, yoga, pilates sessions. We thought the food was good (better than I expected), it's worth booking the chef's table for one night. Service on the ship was good. As with our other cruising experience, we don't find there's enough time at any of the stops to see much. We were disappointed by the size of the groups when we were on tours (had hoped for smaller groups). As with all river cruises you are subject to itin changes due to water levels. We had one afternoon of excursions cancelled as the ship had to move due to water levels. One other excursion was cut short & we had a longer bus ride due to the ship moving. Overall our itin was minimally impacted by water levels. The companies are not that forthcoming about this - it's interesting to experience. The cruise director Kata was excellent. AMA is not the least expensive option on the river, we felt all beverages should be included, at an absolute minimum non-alcoholic drinks should be complimentary. This was our third cruise and this trip confirmed for us that we are unlikely to cruise again (at least until we're much older and less inclined to be DIY travelers). Read Less
