"The cruise Jim and I took on the Oceana line this past summer through UAMS is at the top of our list of several cruises on several lines. Everything was first rate: our room was lovely, comfortable in size with a veranda and bath with a normal sized shower. They took beautiful care of our room with service timed when we were not there. The food was excellent and there were several gourmet restaurants - with a guaranteed reservation at each for no additional charge. They all could stand on their own as Michelin starred restaurants."
~ Flo Deer (Mrs. Phillip J.)

"We had a fabulous visit in Istanbul at the Neorion. Also loved the tour service UAMS recommended, Istanbul Walks. Our guide was Serhat Kalay and he was outstanding."
