AmaWaterways Reviews


AMA's AmaCerto was fabulous. It was the best looking boat on the river. The cabin was lovely; the food excellent; the staff attentive without being intrusive. But the best was the attention to detail in the excursions which balanced well organized tours with unstructured time that was well matched to the diverse activity levels, interests, and travel experience of the passengers.

AmaWaterways was just perfect without any single bug. The cruise Director, a Vietnamese, was outstanding.

Sailed on AmaLotus to Far East


AMAWaterways is an excellent cruise provider. The ship was beautiful, and the staff was beyond my expectations. I would have rated them a 10, except for a problem that was not appreciated on our last day of the trip. But, aside from that (and they said they would correct that so others need not suffer from the same problem), all was great. From beginning to end, the ship was phenomenal, the food was a delight, and the people on the ship serving us, helping us, and entertaining us were, without exception, among some of the most superior service providers I have ever had the privilege to encounter! - and I have literally traveled the world.
