  1. Just flew business Lufthansa in July. Not once were our bags weighed. Like others say, label all, consider mixing your clothing with your partner, always buy travel insurance for lost/delayed bags.
  2. Following, looking at this for 2020
  3. I know there is selection of included wines at dinner. Do they also have other bottles to purchase if you would like something other than what is offered?
  4. Which canal hop on hop off did you do? We will be in Amsterdam Sunday for precruise AMA Rhine cruise. I walk with a cane. Could you tell me if it will be difficult to board/unboard from the boats? Enjoying your report.
  5. Only the dividers in the deck 11 Aquaclass rooms can be opened, on M class, the other balconies on other decks cannot.
  6. Thanks for your review, photos, and videos. Love the look of the stateroom, but really disappointed to see shower curtains, no outlet by left side of bed and the uncomfortable balcony chairs and no footrests. What were they thinking?
  7. Perhaps instead of a specific date/ship, it might be just a thread with let’s say AMA Rhine cruises summer 2019, Viking Danube spring 2019, etc? Since ship/itineraries/ports mostly the same so those going could share tips and info etc before and after trip.
  8. Thank you for your postings! I am planning to cruise with AMA in Europe next year, when and where tbd. Will be going with my two sisters and our husbands. We can’t decide on late spring or a Christmas market cruise. Loving all your comments, pictures, etc. much appreciated, keep them coming!
  9. We currently have the 15,000 points offer on our Gold Rewards card. We successfully used the previous offer on our 2 gold cards for a cruise this past August. When I saw the offer last year, I booked directly thru HAL, and put $1k down ($500 each card) down, using Amex and promptly received the credit. Then, I transferred the booking to the big box store and received the full OBC. If I could save the $200 I might be tempted to book another cruise!
  10. Late booking this excursion, leaving in a week. Only times left are late in day 5pm. I know this gets cancelled lots of times. Will this be too late? Dogs tired, etc? Has anyone ever been this late? Thanks.
  11. Thanks for the review. Want to try Hop On Off bus in Vancouver. Was it worth it? Did you have to wait long for a bus and we’re they crowded?
  12. Looking forward to your reports! Sailing in August. Bon voyage!
  13. Sailing on NA Alaska in August, confused about the Sel de Mer "Pop Up". I know its in Pinnacle Grill but is it in the whole place offered on a few nights or just some tables? Thanks!
  14. Booked on NA Alaska, have early confirmed seating. Having second thoughts because we plan to eat 3 or 4 specialty dinners, maybe room service and might be out later in ports. Should we switch to anytime? Try to change to main seating on board? If we miss are fixed, to they let you dine anytime later?
  15. Having a drink/then dinner in Tamarind the first night. Quiet respite from the other venues.
