Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin: Stateroom with French balcony

We chose the Magical Christmas markets to see Vienna, Salzburg, and Nürnberg, to enjoy some Christkindlmarkts, and to acquaint ourselves with river cruising.

Ama has work to do.

The cruise administration as we approached our travel date was disrupted by the Woolsey Fire in the San Fernando Valley, where Ama is headquartered. Ama needs better contingency plans if they are going to stay in the Valley. Fires in Calabasas, from my youth in Woodland Hills, are NOT uncommon.

Cabin Review

Stateroom with French balcony

Cabin C

The cabin is bloody small! It was worse that we spent four days nested at the Vienna Handelskai, so we could not open our curtains. At 170 sq feet the cabin is downright tiny, with low ceilings.

One bed seemed to have something under it, so we had to put our luggage under only one bed. That was tight for two bags.

The head was good, with a shower falling down from the roof. Water was generally hot.

Plenty of drinking water available. A fridge, but no minibar.

Our housekeeper was SUPERB. Over and above the gratuity in the final checkout, she was worth 20 Euros for herself!

Port Reviews


Bypassed for low water. Only got here because this was our departure city.
