I am going to be booking my own airfare and trying to get information on prepurchasing a shuttle bus from the airport to the docking area- does anyone know if the Viator site shuttle can drop off to where the River cruise leaves and exactly where this leaves from? Is it easy to see a museum or some sites nearby on the day the cruise starts?
I use Viator a lot for my transfers but I've never managed one to a ship. In Paris I found the docking points difficult to find, as do some taxi drivers. I would get an email from AMA with your exact location and/or email address to double check in case it's changed when you arrive in Paris.
Many ships dock by Parc Andre Citroen, on the left bank. We were docked there on Grand Circle last spring. Viking, Uniworld and others docked there, but I did not see AMA. For detailed location information on the location, including GPS coordinates, see http://jackthetravelingman-seine.blogspot.com.
We are sailing AMALegro in May. We are doing our own pre trip and air, however our travel agent was able to arrange transfers back to the airport. I would check with TA for AMA transfers from the airport to the ship. Cost was about $30 pp one way.
I am on the same RiverCruise and I am traveling solo so I hope to meet and say Hi- I did call Ama and they told me the transfers are 30 , still going to try and call Viator and see if they can drop me at the port.
