Sail Date: Sep 2019
Cabin:

We have done several river cruises up and down the Danube with different providers and APT was by far the least luxurious. A pleasant experience but not the luxury cruise we were expecting for the price charged and from our prior experience.

AmaBella is badly in need of refurbishment, some of the upholstery in the lounge is dirty and the dining room and lounge are dingy, with poorly placed seating. The “silver butler” we were expecting wasn’t actually a person, in order to get the silver butler service we had to call reception and they then sent the housekeeper to see what we wanted. We got the impression we were being annoying when we used the service so stopped.

Many times the drink mixers were flat because the bar uses large plastic bottles of fizzy drinks rather than having a proper soda mixer and once opened they went flat fast, and don’t expect to have an Aperol Spritz on board, the whole of Europe might be drinking them but not on the AmaBella.
