My husband and I along with 10 other friends just returned from sailing 7 days on this ship. It was excellent in all ways. The food was great - especially the Chef's Table which was no additional charge for each of the guests to enjoy one ight onboard. The Cruise Director, Radostina (Radi) Markovic was fun, knowledgeable and tireless in ensuring that all the passengers had a good time and the entire staff was wonderful - including Victor, our tireless exercise guru. We started in Amsterdam with a pre-cruise 3 day adventure and loved every minute of this wonderful city. Embarkation was easy and we were allowed to go right to our rooms with luggage delivered within minutes. The stateroom/cabin was well appointed and roomy. We loved the outdoor veranda as well as the one that was glass from ceiling to floor in case the weather didn't encourage being outside. Bathrooms were roomier than usual and housekeeping did a great job two times a day. The ports were interesting and different and the shore excursions were available for all sorts of needs: gentle walkers, regular and high activity level. Most of the guides were excellent and in all the ports, we had enough time to enjoy the destination on our town. The only thing that could have been improved is that it would have been great to have some lunches on sunny days on the deck and also drinks service. There was a bar but I never saw anyone tending it. We could have used more lectures about ports and issues. Our small group got special attention which we loved and even had our own farewell reception on the last night with the help of Radi and the amazing F&B team. The entertainment after dinner we wonderful and high quality and we all had great fun each evening. We will definitely sail AMA again in another part of the world. Read Less

We chose this cruise to determine if a river cruise was a good fit for us. We have decided that for the money our bet is with the ocean cruises. If you are the type that can sit and enjoy a piano player or read. Then a river cruise is a good fit for you. We consider ourselves to be active and the River cruise just does not have enough activity. As for the rooms we upgraded to a balcony and found them to be very small. Not enough storage for your clothes and no place to put your luggage, As for the balcony, you had to walk sideways to get out there. Sometimes you are docked next to a cement wall or if you are one of the unlucky ones to be docked beside another ship, your balcony becomes useless. I would have liked to have more food choices since I enjoy simple food. The countries visited were very nice and I wouldn't mind seeing them again just not on a river cruise. Most of the staff were very pleasant but sometimes you can tell they were just being nice because they had to. Once again, this can be a great cruise for people that like to relax and like fancy food. Not for the active or the fussy eaters. Read Less

My husband and I were celebrating our 65th birthdays. This is our first river cruise. Our travel agent highly recommended AMA over any other river boat cruise. The ship, cabin, food, entertainment and service were outstanding. We particularly enjoyed the new "Wellness" program. Marcelo was an excellent fitness instructor. The shore excursions were very well planned. The local guides were excellent. We would have enjoyed all of the excursions. It would have been nice to spend more time in each port to enjoy more of their offerings. In general the time available for excursions (especially free time) was limited compared to time on the ship. In some ports, the docking locations made access to nearby cities/towns inaccessible. With regards to the staff there were some standouts. The Cruise Manager, Vanessa was delightful. She was very accommodating and approachable. Her Port Talks were very informative. We also enjoyed our Chef's Table Specialty Restaurant experience. In addition to the great food, the waitstaff made the dinner extra special. Alex, the Head Waiter was the perfect combination of charm, class and wit. The only dissapointment we experienced onboard was the coffee machine that dispensed instant coffee. We would have enjoyed freshly brewed coffee instead. Read Less
