  • Sail Date: May 2018
  • Destination: Europe
  • Cabin Type: Stateroom with French balcony and outside balcony

Sometimes when you cruise multiple times on a particular line, current expectations don't meet past cruise experiences. Not so with AMA. Each cruise is as good if not better than previous ones. Our 11 day Rhine & Moselle Fairytales cruise was no exception. Everything from the service to the food to the cabin to the ship and personnel to the itinerary was impeccable and first class. AMA is in a class alone and can't imagine ever cruising Europe's rivers on another line. Dejean is one of the hardest working cruise managers we have ever been involved with. He was always pleasant and ready to engage in conservation or discuss cruise details. Captain Gerd is the most accessible captain we have known. Bigger than life personality, he would welcome you in the wheelhouse and loved to talk boat and navigation stuff. We really enjoyed getting to know him. Hotel manager, Patrice always greeted you with a smile and wanted to know if everything was alright with our cruise. His staff did a wonderful job. Maitre'd Pawel greeted us at in the dining room with a smile and a hearty handshake. Thanks again for your help in the grocery store in Kues.

The variety and quality of food on the AMAPrima is awesome. Our cabin was perfect. We used both the balcony and the french balcony. A lot of room, storage space, big bathroom and comfortable beds.

We were a little disappointed with the variety of entertainment, but knowing that this was the first cruise on this itinerary, it could be expected. We, however, enjoyed listening to Norbert's piano each evening...sometimes singing along or dancing.

The AMAPrima has some of the friendliest staff we have experienced. All to a person greeted you with a smile, made each guest feel like family and wanted to make sure you were have a great cruise.

The excursions were well planned as always and interesting. AMA makes this process very easy and Dejean carried out the plans very well.

The AMAPrima as with all AMA ships is beautiful, clean and very functional. We regularly used the top deck lounges.

We would highly recommend AMA when cruising Europe's rivers. You'll love an AMA ship experience.

Thanks AMA for another fantastic cruise.

Cabin Review

Stateroom with French balcony and outside balcony
Cabin AA 311

Awesome. Large with a lot of space between the bed and the desk. More than enough storage. Large bathroom. Used both the sitting balcony and the french balcony. Gym and Chef's Table Restaurant are on this deck. Jovana did a fantastic job taking care of our cabin and our needs.
