Ama Sonata June on the Rhine by mikemnh

Verified Review
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Cabin was outstanding.  Food was excellent.  Breakfast and lunch buffet layout caused frequent semi collisions with wait staff.  Crew was excellent, but overall ship board operations seemed a bit disorganized.  Lounge entertainment could use improvement to quality of  excellent La Scala.  Tours on Rhine are not as good as Danube.  Overall, an enjoyable experience, though fairly overpriced.

Rhine Trip by Cruiser34323246

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The venue, going from Amsterdam to Basel down the Rhine River was beautiful.  The cruise and it's excursions we're well run.   The meals were good and the entertainment was OK. We enjoyed the people we met - it seemed to be a younger group of folks from similar backgrounds as ourselves.   I would recommend Amawaterways to others if they want to go on a river cruise versus some of the other options that are available.

AMAzed by AMAsonata by funtraveler

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The AmaSonata is a well appointed and beautifully decorated ship.  I was very impressed by the level of service received along with the strong attention to detail.  The cuisine onboard and the wine were by far superior to other products I have experienced.  I also found the Cruise Manager to be on point and consistently exceeded our expecations with regards to knowledge and overall level of service.

AMA Waterways Tulip Time by FirstRiver

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

I've just returned from a trip on the AMA Sonata on the Tulip Time itinerary. The ship is beautiful and the service was impeccable. I love the intimate environment where you get to know the staff and talk with so many other guests onboard. Its very different from an ocean liner. I especially loved how port intensive it was and that you could walk off the ship and mix with the locals at a nearby pub or market. The history was so interesting and the walking tour and biking tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. You can't go wrong with booking this trip but I would recommend adequate health in walking a few miles at a time, even slow. I will be recommending this cruise to my friends and family!

For unpredictable weather conditions, I would bring a waterproof raincoat or poncho. Umbrellas were difficult in the wind and cumbersome to hold on tours

If you're active, and waterways has the facilities. It has a small fitness center, running track and bikes are available to exercise on during some of the excursions. So if you're an active person this will be the river cruise find you want to go on.

River cruising is about the destinations, the cultures and the cuisine. There were plenty of activities to keep us busy while in port and always something to do or someone to connect with when onboard.
