  3. AmaBella (APT)
We have travelled from Budapest to Amsterdam in September 2014. Prior to this we had a 12 day coach through the Balkans also with APT. The whole trip was wonderful. The ship was very comfortable, enough space and very clean. The staff on the ship was outstanding, they knew all our names on day one (including favourite drinks). The whole trip was great but the highlight was the food and the excursions (the choices). The food was from all the areas we were passing through, every region's delicacies, cakes, wine. I can not find the words to describe how good it was. Felt absolutely spoiled. My partner has never been to Europe before and he is now hooked, wanting to go for another cruise. All the excursions were great, the tour guides were full of interesting information and sometimes very funny. The only hiccup on the trip was, everyone on the ship was coughing by day two. Towards the end there was a doctor called and he was just giving people antibiotics, charging 150 euros. Yes, the insurance will cover this, but did not feel right. I had an issue with my ear, doctor did not help, sent me to a clinic nearby (where they could not help either) and still charged me. Thankfully, next day the tour manager arranged an appointment with a doctor in Amsterdam. They were great and very helpful. So this did not ruin my trip, just did not see much of Amsterdam. All in all, I highly recommend the river cruise. The coach tour was also fantastic.

Fantastic Cruise

Cabin Review

Cabin 227
Great room, enough space for everything. Bed very comfortable, good bathroom. We were on mid level, no outside balcony but big window that could be opened. We did not spent much time in our room so did not miss the sit out balcony at all.
