This was a Rhine wine cruise and we sailed with another couple. We had Juliet balcony suites that were, for a cruise ship, roomy. Everything is included in this package, so need to worry about drinks during lunch or dinner, excursions are included, special dining, cocktail hour, and all meals and snacks. The crew was pleasant, thoughtful, and attentive. The cleaning staff was discrete and timely. It rained quite a bit during our trip, and the crew had umbrella's available for guests. The excursions were varied and fun. At one point, my husband was the only one scheduled for a tour - a hike, and they still held the tour. He went off with the tour guide and had a fabulous time. The food was varied and delicious. The main course reflected the region we were sailing through, there were options for vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free eaters. I highly recommend traveling with Amawaterways. I look forward to sailing with them again. The entertainment was basically non existent, there was a piano trio one night. There were several evening excursions.

Cabin Review

Stateroom with French balcony
Cabin C
The cabin was clean and a decent size for a cruise ship. We didn't spend a lot of time there.
