AmaDagio Cruise Review by Ilenekoppel@msn.com
- Sail Date: July 2014
- Destination: Europe River
The cabins were tiny, as I expected, but I didn't expect a bed that was a torture device. The mattress was lumpy and we could feel the poorly placed slats below. Unfortunately, the water in the bathroom had a very unpleasant odor which added to the discomfort. I don't know if they can correct this problem. Overall, the "hotel" experience on board was that of an old hotel that was well passed its prime.
The food was less than mediocre. The meats reminded me of the university dining hall. I was served overripe fruit and the pastries seemed like they were packaged (in France!). I was surprised that the day before we left the boat we were asked to surrender our bathrobes so the crew could start washing them for the next group.
On the positive side the tours and guides were very good and the staff was attentive and pleasant. The trip ended in Barcelona at a good hotel in tourist friendly neighborhood. Overall, I feel the trip was a second class experience beginning with the hotel in Paris, the second class train ticket to Lyon, the bus with broken air conditioning from France to Barcelona, and the aged feeling on board the boat.
