Review summary

Wonderful reception staff, Helene the cruise manager is engaging but not pushy, self effacing and fun and always aware of her guests and their needs

My connections made me uneasy but there was no need for angst. AMA personnel were at every juncture taking care of everything. Top marks for timing, baggage handling and courtesy

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Great chef. Amazing array of French cheeses, wonderful ice cream made fresh daily.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
The daily excursions were outstanding with good choices available. I didn’t really do onboard activities because my days were full and I was satisfied.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
My 4th AMA cruise. In the past 3 years since I cruised with them, I found marked increase in their attention to ensuring passengers are happy. Outstanding friendliness and great problem solvers for the little concerns that did arise. Great chef on board who had a “feeling “ for the food and delivered beautiful presentations.

Ship Quality

Midship, mid deck extremely well appointed cabin. The newly renovated shower tops the competition
