AmaWaterways will always have my future business

| Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary
AmaWaterways sets the standards for river cruising. They have the top ships in the business and the service and food was unbelievable. I would rate this ship and crew a 10+. Make sure to book the land options if you want to really see and fully experience some of the cities. We booked the Romantic Danube and fell in love with the Czech Republic.

Amaviola

| Danube
All was great

X-Mas Cruise

| Hungary Austria Germany
The only really bad experience was the X-Mas Market In Vienna It was so packed you couldn't move around We hit a long Catholic Holday weekend along with Christmas and the market was flooded with eastern European shoppers. Now the is not AMA''s fault but they should have known about this and warned us. All the passengers that went were upset

Fantastic Christmas Markets Cruise on the Danube

| Danube...Prague, Nuremburg, Resenburg, Linz, Passau, Melk, Vienna and Budapest
Everything was "top cabin" on this cruise line. I had not heard of it. Our travel agent recommended it and we are glad she did. We will definitely cruise again with AMA. The Christmas Markets were spectacular.

Tulip Tour

| Netherlands and Belgium cities and villages via various waterways. tulip time.
Professional service in all respects. Most tour guides knowledgable and helpful. AmaWaterways a competent cruise company. Food was good and evening meals were very good. Soups were outstanding. The cabin was small but nice. Balcony small. shower was a bit larger than others we have experienced. Television and WiFi very good. Enjoyed the smaller number of people aboard. Met some enjoyable fellow travelers.

Cruising the Danube

| Budapest, Austria, Slovakia & Germany
We had a wonderful experience on the AmaViola for one week with our cruise on the Danube River from Budapest to Munich. Beautiful river to cruise seeing fantastic villages, towns & cities from both the ship and shore. Many great excursions that are very well planned. The Viola crew are 1st class and very well trained and it was a pleasure getting to know these young people from all over the world.

Marvelous

| Melodies of the Danube
We biked one day- about 10 miles and was very doable - mostly flat terrain along The Danube- We biked in Vienna. We weren't certain if it was going to be too strenuous but we managed well. We would certainly sail with Ama again. Great blend of ages on the ship as well. From Budapest to Germany showcased a beautiful countryside with many beautiful towns, cities and landscapes

Melodies of the Danube

| Danube River
The only thing I don't like about riverboat cruising is when another boat parks next to you so you can't see the river. It's not so bad when you are on the wharf side.

Fantastic Trip

| Switzerland, Germany, France and Netherlands
This was our second time with AMA. Can't imagine any other company could do it any better.

The Danube River Cruise

| Wurzburg, Regensburg, Passau, Linz, Salzburg, Vienna, Budapest, Bratislava
This was an outstanding cruise. The ship was new and the staff was friendly and welcoming. The food was outstanding and plentiful. The tours were informative and the choices of activity level appreciated. Overall, I would highly recommend this cruise line.

Great experience

| Budapest / Passeau
