Amadeus Silver II Cruise Review by tobyscruff
- Sail Date: June 2016
- Destination: Europe River
As for the rooms.. my only complaint was that the twin beds were narrower than a standard twin bed and therefore I was fearful of turning over and falling out. The rooms could have had a better layout. ie.. getting rid of the build in desk and nightstand. The bathroom was clean and spacious with a walk in shower with both a shower head and a hand held shower. The features were very modern.
Food on board was delicious. Open seating for breakfast and lunch with assigned table for dinner. Two options for lunch.. either a light lunch in the panoramic deck or a sit down lunch in the dining room. Dinner was served around 7-730 with 1 seating. Some cruisers thought this was too late. For me it was just right most of the time.
Optional excursions that were included were in my opinion a waste of time. They hired local guides who really guided the group to what they thought was interesting. If you have a copy of Rick Steve with you, you will do much better on his walking tours. The optional paid for excursions.. well, what can I say... your $ gave you the transportation and price of admission...
On board activities were limited to a gym, shuffleboard and nightly entertainment (usually from the tour operator). The staff did put on a comedy show which was absolutely hilarious so Kudos to them.
We did run into a bit of trouble once leaving Austria headed to Prague... The Danube was too high to continue.. the boat was unable to pass under some bridges. Our captain made a great call. Unfortunately, we had to disembark in Austria and drive 4.5 hrs by bus to Prague. The tour operator paid for this as well as a group dinner.

BudapestWe arrived a few days early in Budapest and hired a private guide to take us around. The boat excursion seemed like it was just going to drive by all the locations.View All 373 Budapest Cruise Port Reviews
