Regrettable Experience in "Cruising" All Around

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on AmaDante

User Avatar

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

"Cruise" dates: Apr 5, 2124 - Apr 13, 2024 Normandy to Paris, "Impressions of the Seine" Ships: AmaLyra and AmaDante Be aware that climate change is causing unusual extremes in the water levels of the Seine. Thus, we never got the "Scenic River Cruise" experience, instead being tied at anchor first in Le Havre then at Paris. All we got were bus rides ("Ama Busways"?). And we ...

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Panorama

Wonderful experience on Avalon Panorama for a Tulip Time cruise in Holland and Belgium. Wonderful crew, who said "of course" to every request, excellent food, nice vibe, and fellow passengers and a real treat all in all! Our only complaint was their heavy reliance on the line's "app" which had all the daily details but the "app" was hard to use, had seemingly no instructions and caused a ...

The Cruise That Wasn't

We experienced a very disappointing 7-day roundtrip between Paris and Normandy "cruise." It wasn't a cruise at all. It was more like a stay on a houseboat that didn't move. The Seine was at very high water levels and the ship could not leave Paris. Now the high water levels is certainly not the fault of AMA but the way they handled the situation was. We went through four captains, two cruise ...

Early misgivings over what to expect from recent reviews were dismissed as soon as we got to the Mayflower Cruise Terminal, boarding was seamless, from check in to a glass in hand was just 20 minutes, Our Deluxe Cabin starboard/aft was large with an extended non overlooked balcony. it was clean spacious with a lovely touch of Champagne and Chocolates, a welcome return of dressing gowns and ...

Despite cool damp weather the quality of the young boat and its staff was obvious. Our cabin, port side, going down river kept its view when alongside. The exterior and top deck are not well presented/decorated. Tour guides/coaches were excellent (we enjoyed the inclusive tours). Our cabin was most attractive, (with large shower cubicle) and so well serviced twice a day we left a tip ...

Great First River Cruise

Our first river cruise was an enlightening experience. With two ocean cruises in our past, we were skeptical of the significant cost difference between a river and ocean cruise but soon realized you do get what you pay for. Far more intimate service, better food, and attentiveness on excursions. AmaWaterways is top notch and we couldn't say enough positive things about our cruise manager, ...

Christmas Market experience

I went on this cruise as part of a travel group of 20. There were some hiccups at the outset due to high water levels on the Rhine. Avalon did an amazing job to make sure their guests were well cared for and accommodated and still provided all the tours. The local guides provided were top notch and the food provided by Avalon delicious and plentiful. The staff worked incredibly hard and ...

This was a Specialty Cruise- Festive Christmas Markets, which are a very important part of the European holiday tradition. This was our first time on Avalon and experiencing the markets. We arrived an extra day early in Amsterdam to be able to see the Van Gogh and Anne Frank Museums. This and the Zans Schans excursion and the 9 streets area, as well as the Winter Festival of Lights Cruise, were so ...

Better Than Expected From P&O

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We booked this pre- Christmas cruise to Portugal and Spain because it was as cheap as a B&B and we were missing the sunshine. From our previous experience with P&O, we had low expectations but the Ventura is a nice mid-sized ship and we had a good time. The crew were good and the entertainment was acceptable but it was evident that P&O had "cut everything to the bone". In particular, the food was ...

A very average cruise made worse

Beware of the spa! 2 treatments booked and paid for before joining the ship. During one treatment, the assistant said one aspect had been booked but I could have all 3 if I wished. No additional price was mentioned. Before leaving they apologised and said they'd made an error by adding the whole cost to my onboard account when I'd prepaid, and they'd need to reset my account, and needed a ...
