We chose this cruise because of Backroads. We were doing the biking/river cruise trip and felt that unpacking once on a ship and not having to think of where to get meals, etc would be a good decision. Backroads and their guides were amazing and wonderful. The AMASonata and its crew were beyond our wildest dreams. I have never been more pampered, offered so much amazing food and drink, and been provided with every imaginable form of entertainment.
From the Captain right through to Ali our housekeeping staff member, we were impressed and incredibly pleased. Wei-Ler our cruise concierge was everywhere all of the time, doing anything and everything to make our trip more exciting and seamless. We recommend this trip, whether you do it with the Backroads biking or just do the cruise, very highly. In fact, it was the best trip we have taken in our entire lives. Thank you one and all on the AMASonata for this trip of a lifetime.
The facilities AMA Waterways offer are impeccable. Every part of the ship is in tip top shape and spotlessly clean. Our cabin was roomy, the bathroom was shiny clean and it was cleaned 2X a day, plus a turn down service in the evening. We have never stayed at a hotel as well kept and appointed as this ship. I loved our room and our balcony. We had amazing views the entire time.
