Cabin: Outside Stateroom with Balcony

Our trusted travel agent recommended this as our first river cruise. We did the pre-cruise tour of Istanbul and the post-cruise tour of Prague as well. The cruise and the pre-/post- were excellent. No concerns or complaints at all. We've done several ocean cruises and there are pros and cons as seasoned travelers will recognize. We especially liked the constant scenery and no "at sea" days plus excursions every day. Our cruise offered vigorous (often bicycle), regular and gentle tours at each port. Our cabin was very comfortable and so were the other ship amenities. The cuisine was excellent, and we enjoyed having regular seating with dining partners that we got to know rather than just "chit chat." The ship staff was across the board excellent with special kudos to our dining room waiter "David" and the Cruise Manager Monika. I had a haircut and two massages on the cruise, and they were great. We're already signed up for another AmaWaterways river cruise next year!

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with Balcony

AmaWaterways features the "French Balcony" with outdoor balcony space as well as balcony space within the cabin. I've heard some cruisers complain that they don't want cabin space taken up by balcony but we found this very enjoyable. The bed and bathroom were excellent. (Way more shower space than the ocean ships we've experienced.)

Port Reviews


We decided our first river cruise would be on the Danube River and our travel agent recommended AmaVerde by AmaWaterways. We did a full two weeks on the Danube starting in Bulgaria and ending in Germany near Regensburg. Our Cruise Manager the first week (to Budapest) was very good and then the Manager from Budapest to Regensburg (Monika Feher) was exceptional. The touring of Budapest was very impressive including Buda and Pest. The famous St. Stephen's Basilica was amazing and reminded us of the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul which we had seen on the 3-day pre-cruise.
