We chose this river cruise to celebrate our Ruby wedding anniversary. We wanted a big of luxury and the opportunity to meet like minded people, have good food and to visit interesting places. This cruise certainly delivered all of that and more. We chose a balcony suite on the top deck - to be fair, it was just about all that was available when we booked. The only real negative was that it was smaller than we had visualised, so we didn't spend much time in there. Being on the Diamond deck afforded us an invitation to the Table La Rive restaurant which we really enjoyed, however the food in all restaurants was excellent. We loved the Chef's description of his menu delivered every evening before dinner. The Maitre D' then informed us of the wines he had chosen to compliment the food. The suite itself was well equipped and had a luxurious feel. We loved the coloured lighting in the shower. The GPS system was really great for learning about the places we visited. We didn't spend much time in the suite though, so didn't take advantage of the TV entertainment and computer. We really enjoyed the excursions and found the tour guides entertaining and informative. We loved the fact that the coaches left at the time discussed, so no hanging around for stragglers. One evening there was a young German violinist playing onboard, which was absolutely fabulous. So talented. We also had a musical quiz evening and a farewell disco evening. The crew were excellent, from the lovely Katie, our butler and the housekeepers who did a great job. We were greeted by name all the time and were made to feel special. I can't finish this review without mentioning Silvia, the Cruise Director. She was brilliant. She was so funny, informative and helpful, a true asset to Scenic River Cruises. We were recommended Scenic and I'm so pleased we booked with them. We will definitely travel with them again. Thank you for a really memorable cruise. Read Less

Our recent 7 day river cruise on the AMAdante included the Moselle, Rhine and the Mein rivers. When traveling on the Mein river the upper deck was closed for most of last 3 days of the cruise. It appeared to be because of the low bridges, but there was no explanation nor was upper deck opened in between the bridges. This greatly limited the outdoor space for the passengers and forced the smokers to encroach on what little outdoor space there was for the 100+ passengers. Not being able to be outside and enjoy the river from this perspective compromised the cruise experience for us. We are disappointed that AMAwaterways does not disclose this type of information ahead of time. If we had known we would not be able to use the outer deck for almost half the cruise, we would have selected a different cruise. The only other disappointment was the quality of the food. There was very little regional cuisines and often the entree was overcooked. Many other aspects of the cruise were great and we had a nice vacation but really wished we could have been on deck more.
