The pandemic made the cruise better

Review for AmaMagna to Europe - All

We had an Oceania cruise cancel so we replaced it with this one. We signed up for the pre and post extensions. Our Cruise Director, Vanessa, was really great, perhaps the best we have had. There were lots of last minute cancellations due to the lockdown in Austria and all the COVID political things going on in this part of Europe, but almost all the lockdowns lifted, many markets opened, and we ...

This was my first river cruise and it definitely won't be my last. Despite the Covid challenges AMA and the great crew of the AMASerena did a fantastic job. There were lots of added touches to make the holiday cruise extra special! The ship was decorated beautifully! They even managed to have Santa Claus join us one night! They went above and beyond at every turn! The ship was always spotless and ...

Wonderful cruise to the Christmas Markets

My sister and I wanted to celebrate her 60th birthday on a river cruise. We started planning right after COVID broke out, figuring that planning 18 months out would not be a problem. Little did anyone know that COVID would still be an ongoing issue. After pondering cancelling our trip, we are THRILLED we did not! Ama Waterways, the crew (specifically Cruise Manager- Betti Keese, and the Ama ...

My husband and I chose this cruise in hopes that “by now” COVID would be over. Sadly, still not the case. We liked the fact that AmaWaterways didn’t require final payment until 90 days prior to the trip, and had Alliance’s travel insurance with a COVID rider, so after vaccination and a booster, we got ready to go. We used vouchers from cancelled 2020 flights to book our own flights and was ...

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if a nursing home and an Olive Garden could produce offspring? Well, wonder no longer: the AmaSiena is the floating progeny of this partnership of geriatrics and mediocrity. Unlike others on this venerable site, as a first-time river cruiser, I am unable to compare the foibles of multiple cruise lines or routes. So, this review will not help you ...

We chose this cruise as we’d had such a wonderful Danube cruise on Crystal Mozart in 2019. Unfortunately this AMA waterways cruise was not quite in the same league, but as it included travel and transfers we decided to give it a try. We found the ship reasonably comfortable with very helpful staff. Included excursions were good , but many geared to the active, involving hikes and biking. We ...

There was absolutely so much to love, I am not sure where to begin. Cruising during COVID? That's a good place to start. I felt comfortable that the health of every person on the ship was of paramount concern. Guests complied with mask policy and the staff all wore masks properly at all times. The staff. The staff was just incredible. Hospitality is their specialty and they are experts. It ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

This was our first river cruise. We have cruised on many different lines over the years and the last few have been mainly Silversea and Seabourn. We were not sure what to expect and were surprised with the level of service on the Ama Magna and the quality of the ship. Joking referred to as the "double wide" it made for a very spacious feeling on board. The staff were extremely attentive and ...

I wanted to experience the AMAMagna and it was impressive! The size and the appointments were all beautiful! Everything ran smoothly and it was highly enjoyable. I cannot say enough about the service onboard!! Most excellent! Special shout out to Sophia (beverages), Alex (dining) and Raul (cruise director). With the COVID situation still an issue, they handled it very well. Masks were ...

We did the 14 days cruise from Giurgiu to Vilshofen. It was a great experience, we met nice people and the on board personnel was exceptional. I want to mention, particularly, Dajana Jakovac our first cruise manager; Sergio, the front desk; Boris the dining room director, Djivko, the Hotel manager; Rui, the sport director, the captain and all the staff that was really incredible. We spent ...
