Black Sea cruise

| Black Sea cruise
We have been on other cruise ship lines but we are now going to be regulars on AMA as they seem to be a notch above Food was attractive, well presented and varied. One of our group had dietary needs and it was very well addressed. Keep up the good level of service AMA

4 stars out of 5

| Christmas Markets on the Danube
This was my first trip with AMA. Even though I enjoyed myself thoroughly I found my self comparing to Uniworld. The Prima is a fairly new ship and it still looked like it. I thought my stateroom was much better than the ones I had previously on Uniworld. I really hated the layout of the dining room. It was very chopped up and I felt it was the layout actually contributed to a higher noise level. I really like the fact that the cruise director traveled with us to Prague on our post cruise package. This added a nice continuity. The thing that impressed me most was that the cruise director met us in our hotel lobby at 4:00 am for our 4:30 transfer. When we arrive at the airport in Prague another AMA rep was there to assist with luggage and check in. We definitely ended on a high note.

Christmas Cruise Extraordinaire

| Danube River Cities
We have taken many cruises but this was by far the best. The staff did everything possible to make us feel pampered. The food was fabulous, the entertainment a tad campy but incredibly fun and the tours were both informative and extremely interesting. We appreciated that all tours offered the same venues but could be done at various paces (regular walkers, easy walkers, etc.) Can't wait to go again.

Accommodating

| Austria, Danube, Istanbul
Great itinerary, captain, staff, food!!!!

River cruise on the Danube

| Danube
Thoroughly enjoyed our river cruise with AmaWaterways. The crew was outstanding, the places we visited met our expectations. Definitely would recommend this company for your river cruise.

Would do it again in a heartbeat

| Budapest to Prague
We had a wonderful time on the ship. The crew was just amazing. Words cannot explain how accommodating they were. The food was delicious. We wish we would have had a day of just being on the river, cruising, would be our only comment.

Christmas market on the Rhine

| Rhine river Christmas market
Only negative was the noise in our room - coming from the ceiling area near bathroom - notified the hotel manager. He thought it might be due to weather but it still needs to be fixed room 216. By chance a pair of walking sticks were returned to boat on the 14th by taxi person as he failed to put with our bags. Any chance they can be mailed back to me. Willing to pay for cost. These are Nordic walking sticks in a black bag. Might have my name in side - Carol Lee Owens

AMA

| Switzerland, Germany, and Amsterdam
The only negative was that food was not available 24/7 so when we arrived and were not able to sleep because of the time change, some of us were hungry so we learned to keep snacks in out rooms. Local guides were very informative....which was ok except that some gave so much of a guided tour of the city that we had less time for the Christmas Markets which was a primary interest to most of us. It was an enjoyable trip in spite of the COLD temp, but we were fortunate that it did not rain or snow so weather conditions were perfect. It was the first time on the river so the voyage was calm....interesting going through the locks.

AmaPrima Cruise

| Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, Germany.
It was better than expected. The ship and crew were fabulous. Very organized. Never felt rushed or overcrowded. Day trips had options for everyone. The buses were all new with plenty of room, we were impressed with the knowledgeable tour guides as well Food was fabulous. Can't wait to book another river cruise. Can't say enough about how much we loved it.

AmaWaterways excels

| Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, Germany, The Netherlands
The crew members were truly committed in their efforts to ensure that every passenger had the best possible experience. We loved every minute of the Magnificent Europe Cruise. The Cruise Manager was very helpful in helping passengers tailor any custom outings, and was incredibly gregarious, thorough, and professional.

Great Vacation

We enjoyed everything about this cruise. We had a great time socializing with others as well as enjoying time on our own. The ship was lovely. The staff was great. Good food, interesting excursions, beautiful views. We will definitely book another AmaWaterways cruise.

Amsterdam river cruise to see the tulips and windmills of the Netherlands

| Amsterdam, Antwerp,Bruge, Rotterdam and back to Amsterdam to see theKeukenhof gardens.
Fabulous cruise manager and staff that aimed to please every need. Various options for tours which were very good. Tour guides very knowledgeable, pleasant and all but one could handle a group quite well.

Great Tulip Time Cruise

| Amsterdam, Netherlands, Belgium
Overall food excellent, especially chaine de rotissere dinner.

Danube Cruise

| Budapest, Vienna, Bratislava, Vilshofen to list the major sites.
This was a very nice cruise, made all the more pleasurable by the included tours and options provided. I would definitely recommend this line and intinerary to anyone desiring a taste of the Danube River and it's surroundings.

Melodies of the Danube

| Budapest, Hungary to Prague, Chech Republic
We were very pleased with AmaWaterways, the AmaPrima and it's outstanding staff as well as the itinerary offered on the Melodies of the Danube tour. The optional Folklore Dinner in Prague was one of the highlights of our trip. We also thoroughly enjoyed the trio who performed one evening on our ship. It was a trio of 2 violinists and a guitarist from Bratislava who were incredibly accomplished!

Christmas Time

| Hungary, Austria, Germany
Very narrow spiral staircase to lowest deck.

Budapest to Prague with AMA Waterways

| Budapest, Bratislava, Vienna, Duernstein, Melk, Linz, Passau, Vilshofen, Regensburg, Prague
The staff was very friendly and courteous. The layout and design / dcor of the ship was luxurious. The quality of food exceeded any cruise line we have experienced. The combination of menu and buffet choices were appreciated, as was the wonderful specialty restaurant. Our Cruise Manager, Ornulf Johannessen was fantastic and genuine. Tour guides were very knowledgeable, had a great sense of humor, and could draw comparison to the U.S. sites and customs. Champagne and white wine was excellent. Red wine was a bit light or rough - but it did reflect the specialty of the cruise area. Housekeeping staff kept the ship immaculate and were very considerate. On-board music could be a bit more up-to-date. Hungarian dancers brought aboard were excellent, and excursions to the Vienna wine "heurigen" and the Prague folk dinner were very enjoyable.

Best vacation ever!

| Amsterdam to Budapest
Would travel with AMA again and highly recommend it.
