Fabulous cruise! We cruised from Budapest to Vilshofen on the Amaviola, from the crew, cruise manager, food & wine, to the shore excursions - everything was absolutely flawless! The cabin was roomy, great bed and nice linens, with good storage space; bathroom was generously sized and even had a line to hang laundry in the shower
This new ship has included more electrical outlets and charging stations to accommodate the electronic devices most of us use today. The bathroom was also equipped with LED lights to softly illuminate the room in the night, to allow you to use it without the blinding glare of turning on the overhead light: a small, but thoughtful inclusion. Warm cosy robes and slippers are also provided.
The housekeeping staff did an exceptional job of keeping our cabin and the ship spotlessly clean. The culinary staff ensured every morsel of food offered was delicious, with eye-pleasing presentations. The fresh local foods were well-complemented by very nice wine pairings. The servers in the dining room and bar were warm, friendly and very professional and efficient in the performance of their duties, helping to keep us all relaxed, comfortable and very well-fed.
Thank goodness for all the well-th ought out excursions with knowledgeable, English-speaking local guides, to accommodate differing interests, activity and mobility levels, allowing for all to enjoy as much or little exercise and sightseeing. We very much enjoyed the opportunity to explore our embarkation city of Budapest, it was a delight, as were each of those we toured on our cruise. The on-board briefings regarding the areas through which we were passing were interesting and the entertainment enjoyable. The cosy, ship atmosphere encouraged more social interaction among the guests, allowing for friendships to develop. Great job AMAwaterways.

It's a 1 1/2 hour drive each way BUT well worth it. A Unesco Heritage site and a must to experience.
