  1. Thanks for the good news! We are sailing from Budapest to Vilshofen departing August 16.
  2. I forgot to mention, we are doing a post cruise tour as well. Renting a car and driving to Berchtesgaden (Hitler’s Eagles Nest) and Fussen, Germany ( Neuschwanstein Castle) and returning from Munich.
  3. Of course the deck is open while you are docked. It is while sailing it is closed. The outdoor area on the front of the ship is open. You will love the Moselle. We are heading out next week for Budapest for a Danube cruise on the AMALea. I think you will really enjoy your trip.
  4. We did this cruise in 2015 on the AMALyra. LOVED the Mosel and the Rhine. In the Main and the Canal, the upper deck was closed. A lot. It was really hot during our cruise, so it wasn’t much of an issue, and there wasn’t a pool on our ship, but it was definitely closed. Sailing the Mosel is so beautiful, and of course the Rhine has all the castles. If your husband is interested in WWII, don’t miss the American cemetery in Luxembourg where General Patton is buried. And Nuremberg as well.
  5. Good news about AMA. We are on the AMALea 8/16. Was looking forward to the illumination cruise, but our documents indicated they would not be doing one. Since receiving the docs, the government has lifted the ban. I really hope we can do this.
  6. Received our documents for our upcoming AMALea cruise. In the booklet it says due to recent events AMA has made the decision to suspend the illumination cruise in Budapest until further notice. Very disappointing but understandable. I’m hoping they provide access to one of the local illumination tours.
  7. We are doing the reverse route of this cruise, from Budapest to Vilshofen in August. I recently was able to sign up for our shore excursions on line. I noticed that there was no evening concert option offered for sign up in Vienna. Does this mean that AMA won’t offer this optional tour, or do they have it, but you sign up once you are on board?

One thing I forgot to mention in the review was the timing of dinner seatings. Early dining was at 5:30. Late dining was at 7:45. Part of our group switched to late dining as 5:30 is just way too early to return from ports, enjoy happy hour, get ready for dinner, etc. I thought the 7:45 was perfect as many lines have the later seating much later. The staff on the ship was wonderful. As you you will see, my review is mixed. It’s a good thing there are many cruise lines to sail. Something for everyone. HAL, while nice, would not be our choice for another cruise.
  9. Park N Go Ft. Lauderdale Cruise. As opposed to Ft. Lauderdale Airport. Used them 3 times. Just excellent. If you book on line and prepay, there is a nice discount. Leave your car, immediate shuttle to the ship. On return, exit cruise ship and shuttle directly to your car. Cold water and a newspaper given to you on your way out.
  10. Don’t stop now! Love your pics! Just printed boarding passes yesterday for our cruise next month. This is our first HAL cruise. So your descriptions are so appreciated.
  11. Loved your posts! So looking forward to our Zuiderdam cruise in February. Against my better judgment, our group has decided to do the early seating dining. Do you recall what time it is? I didn’t see the times on any of the daily programs you posted.
