I have done numerous ocean cruises in the past. I wanted to go on River cruise as I hear from other people who has experienced great trip on river. And I was so happy that I did with AMA Waterways Paris-Normandy trip with my friend from Switzerland. It was excellent in every which ways, great dining experiences, extensive menu with wonderful wines. It was the very best to compare with ocean cruises. I just came back from 2 weeks of Baltic sea cruise in May. River cruise is smaller numbers of passengers, crew were so kind and anxious to help us in every which way. I observed cruise manager helping passengers with physical needs with wheel chairs or make sure that everyone is well taken care of at shore excursions .AMA was so much like big family which made me feel very comfortable. There were several options of shore excursions at each stop to accommodate each ones ability and interest which was greatly appreciated. Accommodation was comfortable, bathroom was well equipped with wonderful shower wit glass door, not like big ocean cruise with plastic shower curtain. As soon as I came home, I wanted to take another river cruise at the soonest. It was such a wonderful experience. I want to thank AMA Waterways for their excellent service
