We have had the Danube on our bucket list for quite a while. We chose the Magical Christmas Markets cruise because we knew our son--currently in graduate school--would be available between academic semesters to join us. Although we were excited about the trip and expected to see many wonderful sights, everything about our AMA Waterways experience exceeded our expectations. Every single meal--breakfast, lunch and dinner--was a five-star experience. But that's not to say it was stuffy or pretentious. It's just that the chef, baker, waiters, and other employers were amazing. There were always multiple options--eat a so-called "light" meal in the lounge upstairs, but the choices laid out were the types of hors d'oeuvres and finger food you might expect to find at an expensive wedding reception, plus assorted fruits, breads, and desserts. Meanwhile, in the main dining room, we could always choose to order off the menu or select items from a more extensive buffet. Or both, by which I mean that our waiters were quite fine with us mixing and matching anything we wanted. There was always a special table filled with a variety of fresh breads from the bakery chef, with desserts added to supplement what was featured on the menu. Local specialties were highlighted, as were local wines and beers. Our staterooms were clean and convenient. Towels were thick and spotless. Our housekeeper was friendly and honest to a fault. For example, we threw away an old pair of gloves that were falling apart. (We had found a new pair at a Christmas market and wanted to save space in our luggage.) The next morning, when she saw us in the hall, she expressed concern that if we were missing a pair of gloves, she had found a pair in the garbage. In fact, everyone on the AMACerto seemed to be concerned about our happiness and welfare. There were choices of tours at every stop--a "gentle" tour, a regular tour, a strenuous hike, and bicycle options. Bus tours to Salzburg, Melk Abbey, and other nearby sites were available, all most all of which were included in the price. Before, during, and after these tours, heads were carefully counted to ensure that nobody got lost. When it came time to settle the bill, everything was exactly as I had expected it to be. I could go on, but you get the point. Read Less

We really wanted to do a Christmas Markets cruise and selected AMA based on advice from our travel agent. The ship was well laid out and very comfortable. The staff from the cabin attendant, cruise manager and hotel manager, dining staff, front desk folks were all over the top helpful, caring and pleasant. The food and beverages were very good and offered a broad range in choices each day. The bar service was very good and very attentive. The excursions were broad enough to appeal to all types, very educational and we enjoyed them a lot. Made it really easy to enjoy the vacation as a whole. I was interested in the workings of the ship as well and spent a good amount of time with the Captain understanding it as well. Getting on/off ship before and after was very streamlined and they helped with everything. Will be booking another cruise with them in the very near future! Read Less

We chose this cruise for the reputation of the company, the destinations (Danube and Christmas Markets) and for the romantic time of year. We were welcomed with champagne and a toast by our Captain. We met our outstanding Cruise Director, Sebastian Leroy, and the fun began! Sebastian is professional, considerate, attentive to detail, hardworking, and funny! Our ship was clean, lovely, and welcoming. It was easy to get around the ship and enjoy the different amenities. The crew were warm and friendly. They made you feel like you are special, even though you know that six hours ago they said "goodbye" to the last ship full of guests. I did not bring work out clothes so missed the excellent fitness classes (stretch, core, balance were all held indoors due to cold weather) so learn from my mistake and take work out clothes. Laundry facilities are excellent (no dry cleaning) with a 24 hour turn around. For dining, we enjoyed local specialties at each port and there was always a selection of favorites (steak, chicken, cheeseburgers) for those who did not want the local cuisine. Buffets for breakfast and lunch were lavish with lots of options. Beware those who are trying to cut carbs: this is going to be difficult! The breads, cinnamon rolls and desserts are very tempting! (And worth every bite...you'll walk it off!) Service was excellent and the wait staff quickly learns your preferences. Shore excursions were well thought out+ and local guides provided insights that helped you understand the cultural differences of the county you were visiting. A big thank you to the Cruise Director and Captain that scrambled to adapt our itinerary to accommodate the low water levels of the Danube. They more than made up one missed port with additional destinations that met and exceeded our expectations. I know our Cruise Director had to work extra hard to schedule buses and guides to adapt our schedule. Disembarkation was a masterful plan that was well organized by Sebastian. We were impressed with his attention to detail. As busy as it was he saw every guest off to their taxi, or bus. A warm hug and/or handshake sent us on our way to our next adventure. In summary, I highly recommend AMA Waterways and the Magical Christmas Markets adventure! Read Less
