Sail Date: Dec 2014
Cabin: Outside Stateroom with Balcony

My wife and a friend of hers thought a "Christmas Market" cruise would be a great idea. While I disagreed, my martyr complex compelled me to go. I have not been on a cruise of any kind in over 30 years and was happy to keep the record in tack. Needless to say the cruise exceeded my expectations in almost every way. The crew from the captain to our housekeeper were courteous, friendly, and efficient. Everyone associated with Amawaterways could not do enough to make the experience pleasant. The food and service were very good, with a varied selection. Though most passengers were American, we also had German, British, Australian, Canadian, and a few other nationalities. The planned activities on board and at each port-of-call were entertaining, interesting, and well organized. The stateroom was lovely with a both a French and standard balcony which provided great views.

Wi-Fi was slow to non-existent based on volume use and location of ship. Since most passengers were not of the "my face is stuck to my smartphone" generation, this was likely not a big problem.

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin BA

Brochure and online photos provide a good representation of stateroom look and feel. Reasonable amount of storage with luggage storage under bed. Very nice bath with full size shower. Plenty of water pressure and hot water. Outside wall is all windows for great views. Little to no corridor noise. Could here joggers on roof which is floor of sundeck. Suggested that track be eliminated as there is plenty of time for onshore jogging.
