As newcomers to river cruising we were a little apprehensive before our trip but now cannot imagine that any other company could beat Amawaterways for the standard of our holiday. The ship was beautiful, the crew attentive and welcoming and the cruise manager an absolute delight. The trip went smoothly right from the chauffeur driven transfer to the airport and the welcome at the other end to the excellent care shown to us on board (little touches such as supplying gloves for us on a particularly wet bike trip were much appreciated). Everything was of a high standard and the programme of excursions was varied and well organised.The cabin was very well appointed and had the benefit of both a full balcony and a French style one so was very light. We were on the Cello deck as the Violin one was fully booked but we couldn't see any disadvantage in that. We will definitely go on another river cruise and would choose Amawaterways again and would recommend others to use them also.

Amaserena successfully converts novices to river cruising!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Bratislava
    This is a very beautiful city and very compact so a good feel of the place can be achieved with a relatively short walking tour. We were fortunate to have the most engaging and informative guide which enhanced our experience of the city.

  • City Tour
    We enjoyed a very comprehensive tour of the city which has much of interest from the market hall of downtown Pest to the beautiful views from the fishermans bastion over the river in Bude.

    Good bike ride around town with well informed guide but unfortunately pouring with rain.

    Unfortunately a thunder storm curtailed our walk but otherwise it was good but described as an "active" walk and we found it a little slow paced.

    A great introduction to this truly beautiful city and stayed on to have a good wander on our own after the tour finished as a shuttle bus service was conveniently arranged to ferry us back to the ship.
