Enchanting Rhine Riverboat Cruise by Cruiser11794332

Verified Review
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

As with my previous experience on the Danube cruise with Amawaterways I had a wonderful cruise.  The ship was always clean, meals were absolutely fantastic with a wide variety of things to eat and even the health conscious had a large selection of foods to choose from.  The staff were always helpful and courteous, always smiling and friendly, answering questions.  The itinerary was great and the local guides were very nice and knowledgeable.  Our tour manager was absolutely wonderful, Friendly, Caring, helpful, great sense of humor, on top of everything during our tours as well as on board and very down to earth which was appreciated by everyone.  The Captains, Hotel Manager and crew working on the ship to get us around were all hard working and very efficient in their jobs.  The top deck with some covered lounge chairs, regular chairs and lounge chairs in the sun, pool, Jacuzzi, walking track and free WiFi was a treat.

A memorable 8 days! by Jamie1975

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

From embarkation in bicycle-crazy Amsterdam until disembarkation in Basel, we had a wonderful week cruising the Rhine.  The entire staff of the Amalyra seemed totally focused on making the trip enjoyable.  The excursion guides were all terrific.  By the end of the cruise passengers who had been strangers were good friends!  

Really a great experience!

This is one of the... by LAlovesToCruise

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group
This is one of the finest river cruise experiences! This vessel carries a max of 150 passengers and the staterooms are roomier than I expected , the french balcony allows you to lay in bed and watch the castles go by as you sail down theDanube River. The dining and lounge area is exquisit but not stuffy. They have specialty coffees, teas and sweets throughout the day in the front lounge. There is a rear lounge on the cello deck that offers good internet connections except while you are traveling through the locks on the Danube. This 7 day cruise began in Budapest and ended in Vilshofen but you could continue on a land tour to include Prague for 4 extra days. I highly recommend to land portion. I plan to return in a year with a group but I believe we might be doing St.Petersburg, Russia ,and the Baltics.

Visiting Europe by Riverboat is the best way to see places. You have a leisurely ride down the rivers where you can see varied landscapes and places as you go along. The ship docks in the center of town which is great for walking around. The top deck of the ship has WiFi, pool, etc.

If you would love to see Europe, the best way is by river cruise. Fabulous ship, great food including wine. Nice quiet lounge in rear of second deck where you can receive free internet! This ship seems to have a slightly younger demo than most river cruiselines.
