We have done several ocean cruises but at the end of November last year we decided to take our first river cruise to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday. We have both always fancied doing the Danube, Budapest and Vienna were on both our "bucket lists", so we booked our first river cruise! We chose Ama Waterways because we wanted the luxurious river experience and we got just that. The ship was stunning although a lot smaller than an ocean cruise liner that we were used to every fine detail was there. Our cabin was spacious and the balcony was well worth the extra money especially when sailing past the stunning scenery. The beds were super comfortable, the shower worked great (some ocean cruises we have been on had naff showers!) and the rooms were cleaned and made up on a daily basis. There wasn't a great deal to do on board like a casino or "nightclub" but it was river cruising not ocean! There lounge/ bar area was cosy and we met some really lovely people. The musician on board was great entertainment too! The staff on board were all very friendly and worked so, so hard! The food onboard was to an extremely high standard, im not sure what I did expect but it was above and beyond anything i could of imagined! However, with river cruising it wasn't all about the ship and whats on board. The main attraction is each of the destinations that you visit along the way. the tours and daily excursions were so fantastic and we both felt like we really got the best out of each place. It was quite full on but we kind of expected that, but some of our friends who weren't as active as ourselves chose to do their own thing sometimes and this was not a problem at all. Overall we had a fantastic river cruise and we would 100% do it again maybe somewhere more adventurous like Vietnam & Cambodia!
