Family recommended the Amawaterways cruise company . We couldn’t of had a better trip. The ship was in excellent condition from brass bell down to the on board bikes to take ashore . We were wowed by the crew especially the cruise manager “Marcia”. The food was excellent and suited all types of tastes and appetites along with the abundant poured wines paired with all the meals .(except breakfast Thank God)! We saw lots of other cruise companies as we traveled up the Rhine and our ship always looked the best and had active guests and crews having fun on deck all the time . Others cruise ships seemed to not have the same energy . Our on shore activities were great especially the hired by ama tour guides in each port , turely amazing and so knowledgeable and fun to follow through village listening to all the history and amusing details of our visit .

I had cruised with Ama Waterways previously for a Christmas market cruise. That cruise was very nice and enjoyable, so I chose Ama Waterways again for my niece's cruise. I was expecting a nice cruise, but the crew and staff aboard the Ama Prima made this the best cruise ever! We enjoyed the food, drinks, excursions, entertainment and all the crew. It is a trip I will never forget. All the excursions were fun and informative. My favorites were the cable car in Rudesheim and Rhine Falls. The food was delicious. I enjoyed the lamb, and I usually don't care for lamb. My niece thoroughly enjoyed the cresants and cheesy rolls. Sebastian was spot on eith the wine recommendations. I enjoyed all the wines. I was content sitting on the sun deck soakung in the raus and cooling off in the pool. I looked forward to the wellness classes daily. One of the most enjoyable activities was the daily Sip and Sail! We had dinner at The Chef's table, and the experience wad amazing. I especially loved that they baked a birthday cake for my niece. Thank you Ama Waterways; especially the AMA Prima for making our holiday very enjoyable. I want to give a special recognition to our cruise manager, Dejan Stanic. He was the best!! Dejan went above and beyond to ensure the excursions went as planned, and Dejan worked tirelessly to ensure all passengers go to their destinations after disembarking. I could tell Dejan really cared about his job and the passengers. That is refreshing to see as many companies have forgotten how to provide excellent customer service. A big thank you to Catalin, Sebastian, Norbert and Nemanja for making this trip special and most memorable for my nieces. Thank you AMA PRIMA!!! Until next time.... Read Less

We had a marvelous experience aboard our first ever river cruise. The AMAWaterways AMAPrima is a comfortable, well-appointed ship with a friendly, welcoming, and helpful staff. We could not tell when the ship was under way except by looking outside as the scenery and other ships slipped by. On embarkation day, we rode the tram from Centraal Station to route 26 PTA (first stop) but had to walk back across the bridge towards the Centraal Station. We could have just walked the same 10 minutes east from the Centraal Station river side lower level along the sidewalk. The embarkation on the AMAPrima was wonderful. We were greeted by the ship's Captain, Ron Schuegard and the Cruise Manager, Uwe Nitschke. A staff member took our bags and carried them down to our room 107 on the Piano Deck. The ship's elevator does not carry cruise passengers down to the Piano Deck and traversing the narrow spiral staircase down to that level with baggage would have been very treacherous. Our first night, we had dinner in the Chef's Table Restaurant in the aft of the ship. It was unbelievably delicious and the wait staff were very attentive. The remainder of our cruise, we had our meals in the main restaurant on the lower forward of the ship. The food selection was always ample and delicious with Chef's recommendation or the always available steak, chicken, and fish. The evenings we enjoyed the lounge and the piano music by Hristo. During the cruise, they had "Rolf", a singer and guitarist come aboard and perform one night. Another night they had a classic music trio, "La Strada" aboard for entertainment. Other nights there was dancing events by the passengers. We enjoyed the many excursions offered. The headsets provided excellent ability to hear the tour guides. We had to opt out of some of these so that we could get some rest. Our most enjoyable excursion was the Belgian Chocolate Workshop where we made pralines in a small chocolatier's shop, "The Chocolate Shop Van Hecke's" and took away samples of the delicious treats. Other excursions we enjoyed were the Belgian Chocolate, Waffles & Beer Limited Edition tour, the Kinderdijk Windmills, and the Keukenhof Gardens. Disembarkation was as easy as embarkation. One of the ship's staff carried our rolling bags up to the Reception Desk where we wheeled them off the ship and walked to the Centraal Station. Read Less
