Cruise was okay, but getting there, Ama was horrible!

Wanted to cruise the Douro River with a pre-cruise three day in Lisbon. Ama cancelled our flight, and rescheduled another one without telling us. I even had my boarding pass printed. Horrible customer service. ...

We have done several river cruises up and down the Danube with different providers and APT was by far the least luxurious. A pleasant experience but not the luxury cruise we were expecting for the price charged and ...

Room for improvement

We had to change from the AmaVerde to the AmaBella on this APT cruise half way through our cruise because of low water on the Danube. This involved a four hour coach journey. This transfer was only revealed to us ...

Expected better, good in part, could have been better though

Some Australian friends had told us how good APT river cruises were, so we went with high expectations. Sadly, not all were met. Perhaps we are not the right folk to do this type of cruising, we are used to ...

Ship of Faulty Towers

I was expecting a 5 star luxury river cruise similar to a Seaborne ocean cruise. How wrong was I. River cruising is similar to bus touring. There is very little time to do your own thing as you have to leave the ...

Great Cruise, shame about the food.

We are on this cruise now, half way through in fact. While so many things are excellent, there are aspects of our experience that are not so good. The ship’s clientele are mostly Australians and to say they are a ...

MS Island Sky Adriatic & Aegean Odyssey

We chose this ship due to it's small size, and the advertising from APT that the nature of Small Ship Cruising is flexibility to take advantage of opportunities as they arise" as it can go where larger ships cannot. ...

Great Intro to the opening of Myanmar - disappointed by three factors.

We sought the opportunity to explore Myanmar before the western world changes it forever. APT's Irrawaddy cruise on RV Samatha looked like a great option to achieve the objective. Apart from three detracting matters ...

Amaprima River Cruise-not my ideal trip

My boyfriend and I eagerly anticipated this Danube River Cruise, Vilshofen to Budapest on the Amaprima. We did a lot of homework for it with our travel agent and on our own. We spent 2 days in Prague on our own, ...

Did Not Meet Expectations

The ship was fantastic. Best shower on any cruise line. The ship was very elegant. This was a Xmas Market cruise so we mainly sailed in the evening. The excursions to the port cities was laborious. Long walks to ...
