Magical Time on AmaMagna

Review for AmaMagna to Europe - River Cruise

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

When researching our first cruise, we wanted something that was kid friendly, and the first cruise ship that came up was the AmaMagna, and after seeing that they had Christmas Market cruises, we knew this was the one for us to choose. We didn’t know all of the perks offered, but after having cruised AmaWaterways, we will utilize them all in the future. Pros: * The AmaMagna is amazing. Tons ...

AmaMagna - Love At First Sight

Literally, from the moment our transport from Munich dropped us off right on the dock where AmaMagna was moored in Vilshofen, Germany I was in love. She was so regal and all decked out in her Christmas finery. I was there for an exciting Christmas Market Cruise. I had heard so many wonderful stories about Europe's Christmas Markets that when my travel agent from House of Travel in Lodi, CA said ...

Not worth the money and disappointed by poor customer service

While the ship was beautifully decorated and the crew was great, we were extremely disappointed with the value for the money that we received. Ama was totally unrelenting in refusing to give us 5, 10 or 20% off to account for the problems with out sailing; not even $1 refund. Chief among them was the the ship stopped at the Bratislava shipyard and only offered one time to get back to the ship. ...

The best customer service I have ever experienced

Our good friend, who happens to be a travel agent, recommended the AMA Waterways Danube cruise on the AMA Magna, the largest ship in the AMA fleet. The ship was magnificent but the real standout on this trip was the customer service by the AMA Waterways crew and staff. AMA Waterways were with us from start to finish. From the moment we landed in Prague and picked up our luggage, we were met by ...

I loved every minute of this cruise! From the beautiful surroundings to the warm and welcoming crew, the AMA Magna delivered a first-class experience. This was our first river cruise, after doing several ocean cruises, and it was better than I had hoped. I loved the size of the boat -- easy to navigate, enough people to be able to find friends. The crew was warm and friendly; the cruise manager ...

As we were searching for a river cruise in this region I discovered the AmaMagna. As the largest cruise boat on the river the public spaces aboard were larger and the top deck double the size of most boats. The gym looked incredible and the fact that they offered a wellness host, bikes at every stop and activities from gentle to active were all plusses. The ship did not disappoint. It was ...

Incredible river cruise on the Danube provided by the magnificent AmaMagna! Talking with fellow cruisers one day up on the observation deck, we all remarked how it would be difficult to better the river cruise offered by Ama. Everything was first class: service, food, tours, staterooms, transfers, etc. The post-cruise time in Prague was equally as impressive. The tour director, Nikola, was second ...

We picked the 14 day river cruise on the Danube to explore a variety of cities that we have never seen before. Vienna, Budapest, Bratislava Bucharest as well as smaller villages and towns along the way. We picked Amawaterways based upon feedback from friends and coworkers. The River, The Tours and The AmaMagna Ship all exceeded our expectations on terms of variety of daily tours to outstanding ...

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 ...

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 ...
