Itinerary: Christmas Time Cruis

This was our first cruise with AMA Waterways and it was an enlightening experience. Everything, from the cabins, to the service, to the meals, to the sightseeing and the on-board entertainment, just surpassed our expectations. In fact, we liked our cruise so much that we have been on two more cruises with AMA Waterways and are looking to book again for the fall of 2010. We found an on-line booking agency, which offers the cruises at very competitive prices. So we got it all, a memorable river cruise experience at a fantastic price.

Cabin rooms were spacious and well designed, comparable to Ocean cruises. Showers were very good.

Christmas time in Europe and especially in the area between Budapest and Prague is flavored with a certain magic, which is enhanced by the numerous Christmas Markets. The smell of ginger bread, the crisp air and the special Christmas punch to get warmed up after browsing and shopping the various outlets. Every morning AMA offered a sightseeing tour and afternoons were usually free to explore on your own the numerous Christmas markets - there are at least 15+ major ones in Vienna alone. I liked the one in Nueremberg the best. This is a truly memorable cruise if you can bear some cold weather.
