This was our first river cruise. It was 7 nights from Amsterdam to Luxembourg City on the Rhine and Moselle rivers. The staff was very friendly, helpful and hard working. One day, I even saw the maid on her hands and knees scrubbing the carpet on the threshold to our room! We had a deluxe room in the middle of the ship, on what could be called the second floor. I had been concerned about the room being cramped, but it was not and the amount of storage was unbelievable. The closet was big enough for both my husband's and my hanging clothes and there was plenty of shelf space and even under-the-bed space. And the tiny bathroom had a rain shower that was better than the one we had in the Marriott!
The open seating arrangement in the dining room allowed us to easily meet other couples who were traveling, and we met many fun and interesting people. Each day offered two or three different tour options in port and all of them were good. There was entertainment each evening for an hour after dinner in the lounge. The entertainers were varied, all were good and left us wanting more. Although the weather was a little dreary most of the time, the staff and local tour guides made the best of the situation by always being cheerful. We will definitely do another AmaWaterways cruise.
