We chose AMA because of the itinerary, The Romantic Danube. The ship was beautiful and the staff was amazing. There is not one thing we could say bad about this vacation. Every need of ours was met at every turn. The excursions were amazing with super fun, informative tour guides. Even when we had to disembark and bus from Vienna to Budapest, John, our cruise manager made this a smooth and easy transition. We still had time in Budapest to do the tours we had scheduled and the illuminations cruise we were all looking forward to. Any adversity that came about, John handled professionally and never let the passengers know there was any bump in the plans. The onboard staff was amazing and took care of our every need. The food was fantastic and there were always may options for all. We loved this vacation and can't wait to go on another AMA river cruise. Read Less

We chose this cruise because Dr. Frank Winery was hosting it for their wine club members and their wines were featured. This was an awesome cruise experience. The staff was extremely attentive. The food was excellent. It was a new ship with all the amenities. Most everything was first class. Three of the nights' entertainment was outstanding! John Riley, our cruise director, was fabulous. He could turn a disaster into an apple pie! Every attention to detail was given. He was on call probably 16 hours a day. He was always available and approachable. He became a friend to all on board. Because the river was low due to lack of adequate rainfall, the ship could not sail the last leg of the trip so John had to arrange for travel and lodging for a night for all passengers at our final city. It was disappointing to not sail the last day/night, but John made the best of it and made sure we all were comfortable and attended to. There are only two issues I believe that could be improved upon: First, the "in house" pianist was O.K., but not outstanding. He was fine for some light background pieces for lunch and late afternoon, but didn't really cut it for the night life. He was pleasant enough and personable, but just was not of the level we were expecting for this type of cruise. Second, it appeared there was no thought about lighting in the main bar/lounge area. Different lighting is needed for different functions/moods/situations. The lighting seemed helter-skelter. Whatever was on, was on. The staff didn't know how to adjust it and didn't seem to understand the differences in lighting moods. All in all this was an outstanding trip for us and we look forward to once again sailing with AMA in the future. Read Less

We chose this cruise as friends wanted to visit Prague, Vienna and Budapest, as well as the Wachau Valley in Austria, and we had lived in the area, so felt comfortable traveling with them. The service onboard was superb, from the trip manager to the individuals waiting on us. Everything was organized, with multiple options daily for each type of group, be they active or unable to do physical activities. The night cruise in Budapest was a highlight. A few quibbles: this was a wine cruise with Dr. Frank from the New York Finger Lakes region. We are familiar with Dr. Frank's wines and were hoping to have more interaction with Fred Frank, who was on the cruise. We found him introverted and uninterested in interacting outside of his small circle. Also, the wines were mediocre for a 'wine' cruise, especially since we spent a few days in the Wachau Valley, which is home to outstanding white wines. Linz is a boring city. I realize it's the place that enables passengers to see either Cseky Krumlow or Salzburg, but any activity there is not worth the time. Perhaps they can redesign this piece. One day in Vienna and one in Budapest are too little. Both cities deserve more time at the expense of Linz, for example. Last, the optional concert in Vienna should have been at the Opera House or Symphony Hall. I realize this would have been much more expensive, but how often do passengers get the opportunity to see world class music? A tourist trap option was a disappointment. Read Less
