Sail Date: May 2017
Cabin: Stateroom with French balcony and outside balcony

We were directed to AmaWaterways by our travel agent, and was she ever right. The cruise from beginning to end was nearly perfection. The stateroom was lovely, with very nice linens and an outdoor private deck with chairs and a small table. The staff, from the waiters to the housekeeping staff to the sailors were friendly and helpful. The ship was immaculate in every respect, and hand washing was encouraged to minimize risk of infectious diseases. The food was excellent. We traditionally accepted the chef's recommendations every night and were never disappointed. The Chef's Table Restaurant was also a treat. The wine and beer served with meals was very good. We chose the historic walking tours at every city and enjoyed them immensely. The guides were all well informed, easy to understand and very pleasant. They were all willing to answer any questions we had. The "QuietVox" audio systems were so appreciated. During the tours we did not have to cluster around the guide and try to hear the words. We could wander in a loose group and hear everything that was being said. There were three lecture/talks on board and we thoroughly enjoyed every one. I cannot say much for the entertainment in the evenings, as we did not partake. We were too tired from taking every tour that was offered. Additionally, evening entertainment is not something we are interested in. We also thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the wheelhouse and the engine room. This is definitely not a cruise line for children. They cater to older (50+) people. We will definitely book another tour on AmaWaterways.

Port Reviews

Miltenberg

Lovely small town to wander in and just feel the ambiance.

Bamberg

The culinary tour was a delight. Learning about the specialties and tasting them was well worth it!

Nuremberg

Probably the most emotional day on the trip. Spent time at the Coliseum, the Parade Grounds and Courtroom 600. It was emotionally overwhelming.

Regensburg

Loved the old bridge and figuring out how they built it so long ago. Thankful it survived WWII. Loved eating in the old canteen that served the bridge workers that is still open.

Bratislava

Our guide had lived in the city before the wall came down and was very informative. Seeing the old part that was left as it was during communism, and then seeing the community pride that has improved the city was heartening.
