I have done 13 ocean cruises, all in North America, but I love land travel to Europe and this seemed like a great way to see many different countries/cities. I was not wrong! The AmaMora is a gem of a small ...

Nice, but not our style

The travel agent selected this Rhine cruise on AMA Serena. It was expensive ($10,00) for our cabin, but it included 2-3 tours in each port, all the wine you could drink, and delightful staff. However, the meals ...
