  1. We are in US. In a quandary here. Moved our Danube cruise from last October 2020 to first week of June 2021. Final payment coming up next week. I really don't think cruising will start In early June (not enough vaccinated, lockdowns, new variants, etc). Didn't purchase the Travel Waiver Plus, but have trip insurance. We can either cancel (but lose deposit plus future cruise benefit purchased in 2019. Make final payment and if they cancel then get 115% fcc but they keep our money longer, or rebook and kick the can down the road!) We are a family group with 4 cabins. All but one couple have
  2. Anybody have any experience with their future cruise booking? We cruised last July. Purchased the future cruise booking benefit (deposit plus 5% off). Booked a cruise for Oct 2020. So my TA says if we cancel, we lose $200 each deposit. If we rebook, they will transfer funds to new cruise, but the price may be higher. Either way it sounds like we lose the FCC. I'm not happy about this. We should be able to reuse it on a future cruise. Anyone have this situation?
  3. We are booked for Oct 11. Trying to stay optimistic, but not sure how this will all shake out. We are going to decide early June to keep reservation or reschedule. Not sure what post pandemic tourism will look like.
  4. I just looked at our receipt. We (husband and I)sent everything we wore to the laundry every day! Averaged about $12 euros/day.
  5. Needing info about SA suites on Magna. Read a trip report and writer said that the music and revelry from the lounge at night could be noisy in tyhe front cabins. Has anyone stayed in the first SA cabins and was noise a problem? I’m looking at 304. Thx!
  6. AMA offers laundry services( no dry cleaning) for a fee, per piece. They did not have an option by the bag last year On the Kristina. But the prices were very reasonable, and we left it on our bed in the morning and it was returned by the afternoon or evening at the latest. We were very pleased and used it everyday.
  7. For the AMA cruises precruise is in Bilbao. Has anyone done this? Which airport do you fly into?
  8. 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.
  9. Following, looking at this for 2020
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. Only the dividers in the deck 11 Aquaclass rooms can be opened, on M class, the other balconies on other decks cannot.
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
