We are doing the Rhine on AmaReina in December and it will be our 5th AMA cruise.

We have been pleased overall with the excursions (we stick to active level or Limited Edition when we participate). The food and service on AMA is consistently very good. Wine is also of good quality overall and generously poured.

Staff and crew have been wonderful on each of our AMA cruises and attention to detail evident.

We have 3 more booked with AMA.
142 cruises since 1964, 14 on the river.

This was our first river cruise, in September 2013. We loved it and have booked the AMA Provence cruise for next year.
