Review summary

Love Ama Waterways. Staff are kind and friendly and competent. Excursion options include excellent tour guides and first class buses. Least happy with final Marriott Hotel in Zurich. Location was good, but not all of us in the same building made connecting difficult.

Is there a way to have elevator go down to lower level? My arthritic knees would have appreciated less stairs.

Cabin / Stateroom
