Multiple Choice Poll.
Voters: 495. You may not vote on this poll.
Although we have never cruised with Tauck, I agree how a line handles problems, both from nature and the mechanical ones show how a line really cares about the customer. Feel this poll will bring out the cheerleaders in full force. Pat
Carolyn, thanks for taking the time to read these posts. We experienced first hand excellent proaction from AMA during the "winter of low water" in 2012. The only boats the weeks we sailed that made the entine trip were older AMA boats. We were warned in advance that there would be a slight chance and it was just that. While underway, we lost a thruster--informed promptly and part driven from Rotterdam to Regensberg and fixed with a loss of 3 hours sailing. AMA and Uniworld rank neck and neck at the top of our list for customer satisfaction, attention to detail and crew. We are running out of rivers and DH is not one to repeat trips. This June we sail with Road Scholar on the Gironde--getting there before many others. Thisis the most pleasant of all the boards I have read---chherleaders and all. Pat
We sailed AmaCello on a Rhine cruise a couple of weeks ago and I cannot imagine a better line. We were satisfied with all aspects of the experience and the service and quality exceeded our expectations.
Ours is Vantage, but there was not a place for them in your poll
Why is there not an option - "None of the above" or "unsure"? or "cant decide"?
Because I messed up! Again, apologies. But I'm curious -- you have done a few river cruises. Do you not have a favorite? Or is it you can't decide? Tell us why in either case!Carolyn, I agree with Nippy Sweetie. I have been on 11 river cruises (Viking, Uniworld, AMA, Gate One and Grand Circle) and I don't have a "favorite". I really don't care who I cruise with as long as I get to see things and have fun. I have only been on one cruise where the water level impacted the cruise, been on two where larger groups have kind of taken over the boat, but neither situation impacted my vacation.
