We were not disappointed with your river cruise in and around Holland. The choice of excursions was excellent: we were stunned by the Airborne Museum/Cemetary at Arnhem. The guide was very informative. The flower garden visits were spectacular and at the height of their glory. The ship was in top shape. The state rooms were very carefully attended to. The dining staff were great. Our Cruise Manager, Sonja, was very helpful and accommodating.
Altogether, we have a great vacation - despite the very cold weather - but that, unfortunately, is beyond your control!
The cuisine was amazing. My cabin was comfortable and attractive. Crew members were friendly and helpful. The excursions were well organized and interesting. The ship itself was a jewel - and the cruise smooth and memorable.
We enjoyed our first river cruise experience very much. AmaCerto was an excellent ship and had a great crew. Everything was first class from the food and services to the excursions. It was a very pleasant trip. We would highly recommend Ama Waterways and the AmaCerto.
The staff were wonderful and very helpful. The stateroom was very nice. The trip was relaxing and stress free. The food was very good. I tried some foods I had never tasted before. The evening entertainment was enjoyable. The informational talks helped making the various tours more meaningful.
When I did my evaluation on board for AMAWaterways, I commented that the expected attire needed to be clearer. Two days before the conclusion of the cruise, it was announced that the next evening's attire would be formal. They must have received some negative responses for the next afternoon it was announced for women to wear their little black dresses.
While Gerri and I were on the cruise, we decided to extend on optional tour for another day. We asked the cruise manager if he had received the needed material from Doug. He said that he had and that evening we would get the update. That was a day before we disembarked. We asked the next day and were told we would receive it that night. We finally received the material the night before we flew out the next day. I did not like knowing the time of our flight until the night before we left.

Don't over pack and enjoyt the afternoon Tea
While the double balcony rooms have an inside and outside balcony with approximately 40 square feet more than the French balcony, if you are on a budget the additional cost for the upgrade may not be worth it. Seriously, the itinerary is such that you spend little time in your room during the day/early evening. Also, the Ama Certo may be somewhat older(i.e 5 years) than some of the rest of the ama fleet, the amenities and the staff make this boat a pleasure
