We chose this cruise because primarily because it fit our schedule. We flew to Amsterdam Sunday night, arriving around 5:30 Monday morning. We cleared Immigration, got our bag, and had a quick bite to eat and a coffee at the airport. I didn't find any AMA reps that early, but I asked a Viking rep and she showed me on Google maps exactly where the AmaMora was docked that morning. We took the train from the airport to Central Station. 25 minutes and 11 Euros for two people and then walked the 15 minutes to where the ship was docked. We boarded around 8:15. Boarding was a little chaotic since the previous cruise passengers were still on board. But we dropped our bags offs, washed up a bit in a restroom on board, and went out exploring and returned to the ship around 3pm when our stateroom was ready. We showered and got ready for the Captain's reception which started at 6pm. Learned a little about the ship and the crew and settled in for dinner at 7pm. Most evenings, cocktails were served at 6 or 6:30 and dinner at 7 or 7:30. The food was excellent though the portions were small. We were always told that ordering a double portion, or even three was acceptable and a few nights, I found myself doing just that. After dinner, we had an onboard musician who played the piano or there were guest musicians we would pick up and drop off during the evening. All were fantastic. Breakfast and lunch were more buffet style meals and my only complaint was having to reach over food items to get to the back food items. It didn't seem hygienic and most things didn't have the glass shields on them I have seen on larger cruise ships in the buffet areas. People were coughing and sneezing and that was all taking place in close proximity of the open food containers. We enjoyed all the excursions though we wished we had more time at each stop. We did acancal cruise in Amsterdam, a walking tour in Cologne, a Gondola ride in Rudesheim, the Philosopher's Hike in Heidelberg, a walking tour in Strasboug, and the Black Forest Hike for the last day. We chose all our excursions about two weeks before departure but there was an opportunity to change your choices on board. All in all, the cruise was fantastic. The ship was beautifully designed and well appointed and as a runner, I was happy to see a small running track on the sundeck. Even though it was 12 times around for a mile, I enjoyed not having to run on the treadmill except the last day when the sun deck was closed because of us going thru locks with low doors. We will definitely return to AMA for a Douro and Danube cruise in the future. Read Less

Ama Waterways came highly recommended. It bit more pricey than others (including Viking). The was one of the newest ships, small number of passengers. We had such a wonderful experience, met great people, crew, captain, and cruise director were so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed all of our excursion, well planned and timed. When we did use a bus for transportation or for a tour, excellent bus lines. Tour guides for all of the excursions were very knowledgeable, many were locals! Modifications were made for those with mobility limitations. For those more active, bikes and hikes were offered. On board life was excellent! Food never stopped with great menus. Lunch time homemade ice cream was offered every day, at least 3 or more flavors, many that never repeated! You can eat as light and health or as heavy and unhealthy as you like! There is a special dining room in the back of the ship with a fixed menu. All guests were offered to make a reservation - Chef's dinner! Really enjoyed that evening! Most evenings there was some entertainment, although after a full day we didn't always have the energy to participate! If you like to work out, there is a gym, track up top on the deck, and a fitness director with classes. I personally didn't participate but my husband did most days, attempt to offset the eating and drinking calories! River cruises seem more expensive then ocean cruises but that is because it is all inclusive, all of your excursion (sort of prepaid). Every day their was cocktail hour, hosted. Not the best cocktails but I think we are used to our crafty local places with amazing drinks! Wine and beer is included with meals. Sparking wine with breakfast. Most of the wines for us were just okay. We live in California with many wine clubs and are a bit picky when it comes to wine. That is the one thing I would do differently next time, buy wine at the various stops and enjoy on our own. But many seemed to drink the wines and enjoy. Beer was the better staple over all! We definitely plan to do another river cruise with Ama in the future! Read Less

We had been on many ocean cruises, but never a river cruise. Booked a Baltic Sea cruise that ended in Amsterdam and decided, since we had made the trip across the Atlantic anyway, let's try a river cruise. We knew nothing about river cruise lines, and, in fact, looked for a Viking river cruise simply because we had traveled on Viking ocean cruises. Viking had nothing available, so the travel agent convinced us to try AmaWaterways. The AmaMora happened to be available on the dates we needed. In other words, we lucked into a great experience. I can only rate our experience on this ship and have no other river cruise to compare it to, but don't know how any other ship on any other line could have been as nice. The food was great; there was a choice of included excursions, and our choices worked extremely well for us and were great. We knew the ship was new, but when we booked the cruise and got the itinerary, nothing was included about a christening cruise. AmaWaterways ownership apparently decided the cruise we took was at the right time to christen the ship, so that found its way into our itinerary. A bonus for us. The food was much better than on the ocean cruise we had just left. The ship was immaculate, the service was perfect, and the staff all wore a perpetual smile on both their faces and in the voices. (You can read my review of our ocean cruise on the Holland America Rotterdam and find that I don't always offer rave reviews.) This was a truly exceptional experience. Read Less
