This was our 9th river cruise but our first on AMA. We have also been on more that 45 ocean cruises as well. It is advertised as a deluxe cruise line, but we did not find it to be that.

Portugal and the Douro River are beautiful and the tours for the most part were ok, but the food was not good, the breakfast buffet was good but the few lunches served on board and the dinners were not good. Our waiter would come to the table and ask who ordered what or brought food that was ordered on another table. There was plenty of wine and alcohol if that is what you wanted but the food left a lot to be desired. The afternoon tea was a few white bread cubes and a dry cake, not like on other cruises. Everything was done cheaply. The sun deck was never used for anything not like on other river cruises that do a barbecue at least once on a 7 day cruise.The entertainment was a piano player that played mostly recorded songs and twice they had a local group sing nothing special. We had a balcony cabin that was blocked three of the 7 days by docking next to other ships. We were very disappointed in this cruise line and would not recommend this line to anyone.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

cabin was ok, when we were not docked next to another ship it was nice to sit on our balcony, but unfortunately we were not able to use it much.
