After a two year delay due to the pandemic, my partner and I finally were able to take our long anticipated River Cruise. Having taken past cruises on large ships, it was great to be on a smaller ship with about 120 folks. We arrived in Amsterdam two days before sailing and the Ama tour of the city was very good. The hotel where we stayed ( Barbizon Palace), was very nice and comfortable with very helpful staff. From the moment we boarded the ship, the service was exceptional. Radi, the cruise manager, was very friendly and well organized. She was always available to answer questions. Our room was always perfectly cleaned and kudos to the staff. How can I describe the meals? All were prepared perfection and DELICIOUS. I want to give a very, very special thanks to our waiter Ron. He was so friendly and filled any requests from us with a smile under his mask. I give him and 10++ rating. He learned our names quickly and warmly greeted us at each meal. In the early morning, I would go to the lounge and have a cup of coffee and read enjoying the views. The Captain's Table was a most memorable experience. Each dish was so carefully prepared and presented, we felt as if we were in one of top rated restaurants in Europe. To work off the calories, the sessions lead by Tiago were fun. The guides for our selected excursions were the best. They provided much information to participants and I learned a lot. Another highlight was the Dessert Buffet. One could not get enough of the delicious treats! I will long remember this wonderful trip and will continue to enjoy telling my friends that they should experience an AMA cruise.
