My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our cruise, Vineyards of the Rhine & Mosel. We stayed at the Pullman Montparnasse Hotel in Paris for 3 days. It was across the street from the metro and had an abundance of restaurants in the neighborhood. We enjoyed the tour of the city and the ambiance of Paris. The only problem encountered was not the fault of the cruise line. Our TGV train was canceled because of a strike; our cruise director scrambled to get buses, so it worked out. She was fantastic.
The ship was very nice. Our French balcony was much enjoyed. We just turned our chairs around and enjoyed a glass of wine while watching the river go by. The ship was wonderful, the meals fabulous, and the free wine, beer, and sodas during lunch and dinner were much appreciated.
There were a variety of excursions to choose from. My spouse was not able to do strenuous tours so most of the time there were more gentle options available. The crew was just exceptional! Always smiling and anxious to please. There were buffets for breakfast and lunch but also items from the menu available. One dinner sitting and no set seats gave you an opportunity to meet different guests. There were no children nor any activities for children. The disembarkation was seamless as was the embarkation. I would give the cruise 5 stars and hope to travel with AmaWaterways in the coming year.
Our cabin on Deck 3 had a French balcony which we really liked. The bed was large and very comfortable with nice linens. The walk in shower had a variety of water flows and directions to choose from. Robes and bedroom shoes were provided. Wi fi was provided in the room as well as throughout the ship. Several TV channels were available. We were in the rear of the ship. It was nice being able to open the French door and have fresh air come in at night. On the last night we had another cruise ship alongside so we had to keep the curtains closed but that is just part of river cruising.
