We wanted to try a different river cruise line and selected Ama, sailing on the AmaCerto from Basel to Amsterdam. The crew really made the cruise special. They were very accommodating, and always placed guest enjoyment as their top priority. They were quick to learn our names and our meal preferences. Speaking of meals, the food was wonderful. Ama ships also have an included specialty ...

I saw an add for an October sailing of the Bordeaux Wine Region and booked the October cruise from the city of Bordeaux. It was a great value, especially since daily excursion options were offered and included in the cost, as well as free flowing wine/beer at lunch dinner, plus a daily happy hour! After many ocean cruises from US to Caribbean, Alaska, and in Europe, this was our first river ...

We chose Avalon Panorama for our first ever river cruise. We flew from the UK to Basel, stayed the night before in St Louis & joined the ship next day. The staff were super friendly & within a few minutes of arriving we were told our cabin was ready for us. We unpacked & quickly returned for the lunch being served in the upstairs lounge. We had a very tasty lasagne, a vegetarian rice dish was ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We chose the the Taste of Bordeaux trip with AmaWaterways after significant due diligence on numerous websites, including many you tube accounts by Travel Advisors and non-travel advisors. I had originally zeroed in on another company for the same cruise due to their truly "all inclusive" policy, i.e. tips, 24 hour premium drinks, etc. In this particular case, I could not find availability on ...

We chose Viking because of their reputation. Our experience with the service, food, & excursions exceeded our expectations. The cruise director, Marie, kept everything organized for the excursions and made the onboard evening activities fun. We were briefed each evening on the next day's agenda so there were no surprises. The food prepared by Chef Max was delicious and the ability to mix and ...

POOR VIKING RIVER CRUISE

We would not recommend Viking river cruise. Dealing with Viking Air was cumbersome and time consuming. Nickel and dime air charges: $100.x2, $166.50x2, $24x2, $50x2, $20.x2. And no refund on any, some being Viking mistakes, some just illogical rules. Food was poor, most guests we ate with agreed. Customer blogs before this cruise commented on poor food and Viking chose not to fix this ...

It was chosen on the recommendation of a friend and also our travel agent. We learned a great deal of European history, the devastation caused by World War II, and the resiliency of the European people. We were amazed by all we saw and the amount of territory we traveled. We also enjoyed meeting people from all over the world and sharing the experiences with them. The excursions were very ...

We were originally on the Amsterdam to Basel 8/21. This cruise canceled, due to historic low water levels. I had been calling and emailing Uniworld to ask if the trip was going. We were informed that there was rain forecasted and that the sailing was a "go". We flew to London a few days prior and decided to take Eurostar, as we had heard of the horror stories of the Amsterdam airport. The night ...

We chose this cruise because we wanted to do a river cruise and to see France up close and personal. We went with Avalon because they are very highly rated and had the perfect itinerary at very attractive fares. Our package was northbound and included two nights in Nice which was well worth seeing. It can also be done from Paris heading south. We then transferred to the ship, which was ...

Not enough time in ports, too little control over your day

We chose this cruise because we had never tried a river cruise before and Viking seemed to be a popular option. They provided an included excursion at each city they stopped in, and we felt it was nice not to pay for every excursion. Finding the Cruise - Call for Better Pricing Our experience when we got to Amsterdam was really mixed. We were not provided with the exact location of the boat, ...
