Review summary

This was my 2nd trip with AmaWaterways and 4th River Cruise (Amazon, Mekong and Yangtze). The Rhine did not disappoint. Adding the pre-dates in Amsterdam and Post-dates in Lucerne and Zurich only added to the experience

As with any ship rooms are ready in the afternoon. We had an option of a cruise through the canals of Amsterdam to occupy the morning. Light lunch was ready when we boarded - rooms were ready quick

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Food was excellent. Took advantage of dining at the Chef's table. WOW! I had dietary concerns and the chef spoke direct with me and accommodated my needs. Only had one meal i did not really enjoy but that was personal preference

Onboard Activities

the wellness host Damien offered walks on the deck, works-outs and some educational classes. i participated in the walks and he was very knowledgeable.

ship was laid out well and easy to navigate. it was always clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Rhine River ships have to navigate multiple locks and this dictates the ship size and room size. the room was laid out like any other ship. the shower felt a little bigger. Closets were spacious and lots of hangers
