The quality and selection of dinners was a disgrace for 14 nights.
We just completed this APT cruise in Amsterdam. Our cruise was changed due to low water of the Rhine river, so we could not go after Passau . APT arranged a flight for the second half of our Rhine cruise and flew all 110 people to Rotterdam where we did a replacement 7 day cruise of Holland and Belgium which was brilliant and well organised.
My 2 star rating is purely due to the terrible dinners on both the AMA boats - the Amereina from Budapest to Passau for 7 days, and then the Amavenita from Amsterdam for 7 nights.
We were not the only ones disappointed by the meals, we are paying top prices expecting 5 star dining and we got meals below the standard of a leagues club !
We have taken 13 cruises over the last 15 years - to name a few, Cunard, Uniworld, Princess, Oceania, Avalon, Norwegian, etc. and every dining experience was superb.
I have never bothered to write reviews of them as they were all good. But I am drawn here to write this negative review.
The boats were nice - cab8ns, crews, cruise director, itinerary, fantastic guides at every port and good bus tours , but it is a shame the shocking dinners completely spoiled our experience !
2 years ago we took an Avalon river cruise from Arles to Lyon, it was brilliant and we remember commenting that every meal was a delight.
So, sorry APT we will never use you again because of 14 days of terrible dinners !
Excellent cabin, good bed, good size and nice bathroom.
