This was our first river cruise after 15+ ocean cruises, primarily on Celebrity, Seabourn, and Oceania.
Overall a great cruise, so much in fact we are planning to do another river cruise on AMA next year.
All inclusive (except gratuities)
no crowds/lines on board - about 150 passengers. Easy on and off every time.
very good food (we are food lovers!) Beef not as good as fish, however (Europe not known for their beef). Great deserts, baked goods, fresh fruit, plenty of choices.
The meal at Chef's table was fantastic.
Tours were groups of 10-15 and the guides were very good.
The scenery was spectacular and
The ship is beautiful and in great shape.
The service was a high point - just outstanding.
No real negatives to mention.
There are some differences between ocean and river cruising (none which I consider negative, just different), but we enjoyed the cruise tremendously - can't wait to do it again.
smaller than an ocean cruise line, but functional and comfortable.
