Modified Itinerary on Rhine not what we expected by mgsarcione

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: AmaStella / Destination: River Cruises - Europe

We spent considerable time on a bus (6 hrs) transferring from Strasbourg to Antwep with a stop in Luxembourg on the way. We also were scheduled to sail Mon night to Breisach our first night, but didn't leave until Tuesday morn. Between the transfer and delayed departure from Basel we lost excursion time that was originally scheduled. Did enjoy seeing places we hadn't been before, but would have rather continued to Cologne area. We can cross river cruise off our bucket list, if we did another we may try another company based on discussion s with folks on board who've cruised with others and could compare.

AMA Waterways is a great way to cruise the Danube by SJB1962

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: AmaStella / Destination: River Cruises - Europe

The entire experience AFTER the air travel portion was great. Our cruise manager was just that. Nicola was not the typical "entertainer" that you get on an ocean cruise. He truly manages the whole experience and shows up during many of the excursions to verify all is going well.


The food was great and the staff was wonderful.


Ours was a wine cruise and thus was busy all the time between the normal excursions and the tastings added in.


The cabins on the third deck are subject to noise from the sun deck/walking-jogging path. Even though the cruise paper work said it should not be used between 10 pm and 8 am.


You will meet a few new friends as with only 170 passengers maximum you will have the chance to meet almost all your fellow travelers. 


Before booking any river cruise check the age of the ship. AMA Stella was new in 2016. We saw lots of other ships from other lines that were much older and a few that just looked warn out.


RE: "After the air travel" comment above. We were booked on British Air for most of the trip. Their "business" section is NOT the same as business on Delta, KLM or American. Much smaller seats, same higher cost. Get your travel agent to show you the seats BEFORE you pay extra for this when you will be on British Air. It was not worth the cost to me.

"A" plus, top notch, fantastic! by Cruiser5157162

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: AmaStella / Destination: River Cruises - Europe

In every category, AMA exceeded expectations.  The ship, AmaStella, was beautiful.  The food was world class, the crew, to a man, were happy, friendly and helpful.  Our waiter, Milen, was professional, friendly, funny, experienced and caring.  It was a dream trip!

Relax and enjoy your trip.

Bring spandex clothing. You're going to enjoy the food so much you are sure to gain weight, but it'll be worth it!

Leave your formal clothes at home. Pack light. We always seemed to dock in the perfect spot to allow easy access to the city/village we were in. Stop in at the bridge and watch the captain handle the ship. Also, if offered, take the engine room tour. Book the Captain's Table restaurant EARLY.
