Last year we used AMAWATERWAYS for our first "real" river cruise, Budapest to Prague. We had previously been on a Nile River land / cruise tour, but it was only 4 nights on the water.
We knew that river cruising would be different from the ocean cruises that we were used to doing, but we didn't really expect to like it as much as we did. AMAWATERWAYS provided absolute top notch service before, during, and after the cruise. In fact, we are doing their Europe's Heartland cruise next year.
For anyone who might be interested, Mike and I did an in depth review with loads of pictures at www.thepreismans.com
In researching our cruise beforehand, we had not found a lot of information about what to actually expect on a river cruise. Therefore, we tried to write our review in detail so the reader might feel what it is really like to take a river cruise. Enjoy!
