We chose AmaWaterways (Ama) because we have travelled with them before and know what to expect. We wanted something personal and intimate and taking a river cruise with Ama is just that. This was our third time traveling with Ama and each experience surpasses the last. The food and presentation is absolutely amazing, top quality and service was outstanding. Our Cruise Director, Sebastian Leroy was charming, hospitable and the staff from top to bottom were extremely friendly and efficient from captain to the the waiters, bartenders, housekeeper et al. We had a wonderful time at the Chef's Table Dinner whereby the Chef hosts guests every night with his speciality. This special event is open to everyone on board on various days. This trip certainly has been a trip to remember fun from beginning to end. Only problem is it ended too soon and went by so fast. It was perfect.

Exceptional service, food and experience

Cabin Review

Stateroom with French Balcony
Cabin A+ 302
Cabin was spacious, bed was very comfortable, especially the pillows and each time we left the room (which was at least 3 times a day) we came back to a spotless room and fresh towels. I loved the shower, it was powerful and the shower had many jets. I loved finding new ways that Alex our housekeeper would leave the towels in different shapes and themes.
