Reviews From Ama Cruise Customers

“We just returned from a Amawaterways Romantic Danube trip. From the moment we stepped on board everyone was so friendly. We did the pre cruise in Prague where we met our cruise director Nocoleta, she was fabulous. They are all about Health and Wellness so all the food was perfectly proportioned, they really made sure we were well taken care of. They hired really knowledgeable guides who covered ancient history and current economics for all these countries. Our ship the Amalea is well decorated, and comfortable. The staff, the wait staff the housekeeping, the Captain, Jerry our hotel manager and Chef Garrett were all very available, very friendly and super nice. Many of the different ships dock next to you, after seeing some of those ships , we were happy to have picked the Amalea.”

Edith Anstead, US

“Our needs were special – both of us use walkers or wheelchairs. Ama accommodated us well and lots of special attention. The tulip garden in Amsterdam was beautiful and we did that with one of us pushing the other in a wheelchair. Ama arranged taxis in places where walking was planned.

The Amacerto was a lovely ship; the service was beyond compare and our cabin with a patio was exquisite.”

Norma & Bob, US

“We felt the experience was outstanding. Unfortunately, we both came down with a virus for several days the second week. The crew was friendly, helpful and efficient.. The tour director did an outstanding job. We were very impressed with the itinerary. Also, we liked the atmosphere where the crew and passengers almost seemed like a family, unlike the cold feeling one gets on a large cruise ship. River boat is the way to go.”

Charles, USA

AmaWaterways River Cruises:
FAQs

Find answers to some of the most common questions about river cruising here.

What options are there for dining onboard for someone on a restricted diet?

AmaWaterways always offer vegetarian and vegan options on board all our vessels, plus our gourmet chefs will cater for allergies and intolerances for individual passengers – just let us know when you book.

Which rivers are the most popular for cruising?

That’s tricky to answer as every river is unique, and each passenger is looking for something different. However, our booking data suggests that the Rhine, Danube, Moselle, Nile and Mekong are the most popular river choices. Reading about other people’s experiences can help you make a more informed choice about which river cruise will be best for you.

If I get seasick on boats or ocean cruise ships, will I get seasick on the rivers?

Definitely not! The rivers we sail are calm bodies of water, and our ships experience no waves or rocking motions – the primary cause of seasickness. Our vessels also move along at a gentle pace, and you can always see land on both sides of the river, removing any additional anxiety for those who may get worried out on the open water.

What if I want to explore a port on my own – am I required to stay with the group on AmaWaterways’ excursions?

While we offer a wide range of interesting excursions, passengers are always welcome to explore on their own. We will be happy to provide you with a map of each port at our reception desk, and you will find the city’s highlights marked. Your Cruise Manager can also help recommend restaurants, shops, museums, bars and more. In addition, you may choose to reserve a complimentary bicycle to explore further along the river or in any port city. Just be sure to check your Daily Cruiser onboard newsletter to ensure you are back on board the ship before it departs for the next port. On very select rivers and itineraries, the Personal Audio Device we use for shore excursions can also be used for your individual exploration, as pre-recorded commentary may be available based on your current GPS location. Your Cruise Manager can explain more about this.

What should I bring to wear for my river cruise? Do I need formal attire?

Plan to pack casually elegant attire; and something a little dressier to wear to the Captain’s Dinner or an evening concert. Bring comfortable walking shoes for shore excursions and one pair of formal shoes. You may travel through different climates and altitudes, so layering is advisable. Europe can be quite warm in the summer, so short sleeve shirts, shorts, skirts, sundresses and a wide-brimmed hat are good items to pack. Bring a raincoat, a warm sweater for chilly evenings, especially in spring and autumn, and warmer clothing and a heavy coat for winter cruises. If you plan on participating in our complimentary wellness activities, remember to bring comfortable workout clothing, such as yoga pants or bike shorts. If it rains on your river cruise, each vessel has complementary umbrellas available onshore.

What is the best time of year to go on a river cruise?

The best time to go on a river cruise depends on the destination. Generally, summer is the most popular season for European river cruises, as temperatures are mild and attractions like castles and churches are open to visitors. Check with your booking adviser about the climate and weather for your travel dates.

On Which Rivers can I book an AMAWaterways River Cruise?

AMAWaterways offers cruises on a variety of stunning rivers around the world that you can find and book right here with Crui.se, including the Danube, Rhine, Nile, Rhone, Seine, Duoro, Moselle and Mekong Rivers.

Is there WiFi Onboard an AMAWaterways River Cruise?

On an AMAWaterways cruise, you’ll be delighted to know that complimentary Wi-Fi is available onboard. So, fear not about staying connected while you embark on your unforgettable river adventure. Share the magic of your journey with loved ones and capture every cherished moment as you sail along the beautiful waterways. Happy cruising!

Cruise with Confidence – All Aboard!

Experience the very best river cruising experience and visit some of the most famous locations in the world with a unique form of travel that never dates or loses its lustre.
