" This was our eleventh cruise but first river cruise. Christian, our cruise director, is the most knowledgeable cruise director we have had on any of the cruises. He anticipated everything that would be needed on the excursions, the post-cruise visit to Switzerland and the evening entertainment. We are already looking forward to taking another river cruise with AmaWaterways. "
" While we always heard wonderful things about river cruising, Ama exceeded all of our expectations on what the cruise would be. One could not find a more helpful, more courteous, more hard working staff throughout the ship. They made each one of us feel special. "
" My husband and I are just back from a wonderful Danube cruise on the AmaDolce and I want to tell you that it was the best vacation we've ever taken. The ship and the beautiful cruise destinations are certainly key to our experience. But I also want to mention the crew. To a person, we found the crew to be cheerful, helpful and genuinely interested in the passengers' enjoyment. I know there are a lot of cruise lines now, but after this cruise, I wouldn't trust our next vacation to any line besides Ama. "
" Last week we were fortunate enough to be on board the AmaVida on the Douro River. What a magnificent trip, made even better by the crew, weather and wonderful shore excursions. This was our third trip on Ama and it did not disappoint. Your shore excursions were truly amazing, and I found it very difficult to pick one that I liked best. You combined so much culture, history, entertainment and fun in each one. Our vacation is one to remember. "

Let the "Capital of Noël," Strasbourg, the oldest and largest Christmas Market in France, captivate you the way it has for so many others for centuries. Meander through Heidelberg’s majestic Christmas Market nestled idyllically amongst the historic squares of the Old Town. And while in Gengenbach, marvel at the world’s largest Advent calendar, where every evening at 6:00 PM, the brightly lit windows of the neo-classical town hall open and behind each one is a picture by a famous artist, such as Andy Warhol. Cherish all the glory of the season in grand European style as you cruise along the Rhine.
