  1. My April 18 cruise has been canceled. According to my TA, I, as one who booked with an interliner discount am not able to choose the option of a full refund of monies paid to Windstar. This doesn't seem right. I am not going to bother Windstar today.....yes, I was offered Future Cruise Credit, but NOT the option of a full refund. Does anyone have any info on this? INTERLINE PEOPLE ONLY.
  2. I was on an Ama cruise in late October 2019, and was given a two category upgrade when I arrived because they had a large group cancel. It was a twin balcony room that was awesome!
  3. NOTE: on the final day, you will be given suggested gratuities to add to your bill. They will recommend that you tip the cruise director separately; I believe it's 25 Euros/person.
  4. JOHN, I didn't do the post-cruise with Ama, as I like to ad lib after my cruise. I can tell you that Ama hotels are always top-notch. As it turned out, the weather was crummy in early November, so I just took the train from Basel to Zurich. Very easy to do. If you're seasoned travelers it is easy to take train to Lucerne, spend a few days, then take train back to Zurich. For me, it's a matter of budget as those pre and post cruise tours are expensive! But you can be sure Ama will give you your money's worth.
  5. I've been on the AmaKristina twice this year. Just finished the Rhine in November. I highly recommend that ship. Absolutely an outstanding crew and named after one of Ama owners. It is very new and the balcony cabins are almost all twin balconies. The Rhine gorge is gorgeous, so be sure you get up early enough that morning.....don't want to miss any castles!! Captain Jan is such a pro we never once bumped against the locks! All Ama crews are wonderful but I believe these are the creme de la creme! Hope you enjoy your cruise!
  6. The scenery on the Danube cruise is stunning, so anytime is good. I went first week of June. I also did the Tulip Time cruise which was nice, and am leaving soon for the Rhine gorge cruise. For what it's worth, Rick Steves thinks that cruising the Rhine Gorge is one of the top scenic cruises or train trips in Europe. Ama is fantastic. Just call them and I'm sure they'll help you decide.
  7. I suggest you book one of their Christmas Market cruises, which begin in later November. They go down the Rhine or Danube. The Danube cruise from Vilshofen to Budapest is one of their most popular routes......absolutely beautiful. Once you've experienced Ama, you'll never go back to Viking. They are stellar in every way.
