  1. We are scheduled to leave Amsterdam and go to basil on 9/22 on Avalon Tranquility II. We have not received any changes to our schedule at this time. Leaving Friday so we are hoping to get our trip in.
  2. Thank you for all the updates. We fly into Amsterdam this Sat., September 22 to board the Avalon Tanquility II. This is our first river cruise and we appreciate all the info everyone has been sharing.
  3. We leave in 11 days on Avalon, Amsterdam to Basel. We arrive at 9:30am and we are to be on board the ship no later than 5pm. Avalon meets us at the airport and stores luggage. We plan on doing some touring while waiting to get on the bus.
  4. We just received this info from Avalon: Arrival Procedure: Upon arrival at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, please claim your luggage and after leaving the claim area proceed towards the central hall near the main exit. You will need to pass some small shops and little bars to arrive at the official meeting point of Schiphol airport. It is a big Red & White checkerboard structure. Here the AVALON WATERWAYS representative will meet you and take care of your transfer to the ship. Please look out for the AVALON WATERWAYS sign and AVALON flag. In the unlikely event that your luggage is missing you must make a "Lost Luggage" claim in the appropriate office within the luggage claim area. If possible, a member of your party should advise our representative of your delay. Your Cruise Director will be waiting for you at the ship with information on existing optional excursions. Official check in time to your stateroom is 4pm. Optional excursions will start from the ship. In the “contact information” section of this booklet you will find important information concerning your ship and your Cruise Director. We leave Sept. 22 on Avalon Tranquility II
  5. We are on Tranquility II on 9/22 Amsterdam to Basil. First time to River Cruise and hoping things improve before then. So sorry for all who have had their trips cancelled.
  6. We have our first River Cruise booked for September 21st, Avalon, Tranquility II. Amsterdam to Basel and 3 post days in Zurich and Lake Como. I would like to pack just a carry on. Any suggestions on what kind of clothes to take for that time of year? Stressful for me as i usually have a full size and carry on, but then again have never been to Europe. Any suggestions would be appreciated. We have taken several ocean cruises and I know the wardrobe is quite different. Thank you in advance.
