AmaLegro Cruise Review by Milliegirl229
- Sail Date: October 2016
- Destination: Europe River
We left Paris after dinner and sailed up the Seine toward the Eiffel Tower starting the cruise off viewing the Eiffel Tower at night with the spectacular sparkling lights, a special memory to start the cruise.
The captain and crew provided excellent customer service and always went above and beyond to make you feel like a special guest on their ship. The captain and second in charge were always at the door as we left for excursions and returned, even standing out in the rain to greet us. We were provided many extra special small perks that were much appreciated and it showed that they value their guests.
The excursions were excellent, especially Giverny and our day in Normandy. All guides were professional and provided great narratives and the perfect amount of historical information about the port and area. With the "vox box" and ear piece you could hear the guides throughout the excursion.
The room was comfortable and well kept. Limited storage space in the bathroom but it was manageable for the week. Overall room had enough storage space and there was enough room under the bed so large suitcases could be stored underneath and out of the way.
The food was excellent, always plenty of selections and variety for each meal. Snacks always available in the lounge with a hot drink self-serve machine as well as water and iced tea. There were several nights with a captain's event prior to dinner for nice social time prior to dinner. The lounge entertainment was enjoyable and added to the enjoyment of the time in the lounge.There was no assigned seating in the dining room and this allowed us to meet a variety of guests. One slight negative on our cruise was there were two groups, each appeared to be 10- 20 people and they did not mingle with other guests, the larger group frequently taking over sections of the lounge which created a cliche atmosphere for some gatherings, this is no fault of the cruise line but just an observation of groups being on board.
We had an outstanding time thanks to the great efforts of the cruise, from the captain to those behind the scene crew members. We recommend AMA and we hope to do another cruise with them.
