We had the most incredible experience aboard the AmaSonata, and would highly Ama Waterways to anyone interested in river cruising.
This is especially the cruise for you if you have any special dietary needs. My husband and I are both vegan, and were blown away by the delicious, healthy food we encountered at every meal. We've travelled on quite a few ocean liners, and were used to only getting sub-par tofu or soy protein dishes, which often lacked flavor and nutrients. But, we were delighted to have an entirely new experience aboard the Ama Sonata. The chefs aboard took such great care of us, giving us new and unique dishes every day with a variety of healthy proteins ( lentils, quinoa, polenta, beans, etc.). The chefs even made us a delicious raw wrap ( with almond cheeze) one evening. The waitstaff always made sure we were taken care of and we never felt like we were a bother. We've never had such great food or service on a vacation and were so grateful!
The staff on the ship really went above and beyond to make our stay special. They were always so kind, fun, and helpful. And the ship itself is gorgeous with wonderful rooms. We especially appreciated the variety of tours offered, including bike tours! And, if you're lucky enough to get Dejan as your cruise manager, you will be very taken care of. His delightful, positive energy and hard work really made our cruise special.
If you want to river cruise, Ama Waterways is the only way to go, you will not regret it!
