I loved this cruise--Nuremberg to Budapest on the Danube. Natalijia the cruise director and the crew were great. Solo female Traveller here (millennial too) so wasn't sure what it would be like. It's my first river cruise and was thoroughly impressed. Excellent excursions and tour guides, time to myself, great food and wine, and the onboard shop was lovely too! Highly recommend. Will do another Christmas market tour in 2020 but on the Rhine next time. The Danube was a bit low so the Captain had to maneuver around slower locks and we did get into Budapest a bit later than anticipated. But the tour guides styaed flexible and we still had plenty of Budapest time in the markets and on our own. Had dinner on the Danube at a great restaurant (Dunbarry restaurant) and got several Krampus dolls. The daily wellness program was great too--Alex was thoughtful and expert with strength training and cardio on board and off. AmaWaterways will be an annual trip for sure!!!

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with Fixed Windows

Roomy, great bathroom and shower. Just enough cabinetry and desk area that could hide my suitcases.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Great city...great tour. Guide linked history to modern era, good markets and the town is very accessible. Religious but not overtly so.


Favorite major port... Nuremberg is a favorite of mine so I'm not the best reviewer. I'd live here if I moved to Germany.

St. Stephen's Cathedral

Very good but most things were closed by the time we were free to walk on our own. VERY Catholic so be aware for conservative philosophy.

Walking Tour

Great tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and thoughtful. The fog was thick but she explained things and would like modernity to history.
