  1. When we went on our Rhine cruise on Viking (Amsterdam to Basel), we boarded about noon. There were quite a few people already there who must have arrived on early flights. We were already in Amsterdam, having spent a few days there pre-cruise. They provided a light lunch. While it was too early to get into our cabin, we had access to the public areas of the ship. We were docked on the outskirts and a shuttle bus was provided for those who wanted to go into central Amsterdam that afternoon. I imagine most cruise lines do the same.
  2. I know, right? We’re getting our first shot this coming week and are looking forward to it.
  3. I know, right? We’re scheduled for our first shots this coming week and are actually looking forward to it.
  4. I agree with you, Bake apple. More of the mutated version are surfacing and the vaccination process seems to be moving slowly in our area, so we can’t see ourselves booking a river cruise until next year at the earliest. ☹️
  5. As Daisi said, not all the river cruise ships dock near Centraal Station. Our river cruise (Viking) left from Coenhaven, which was a dock in an industrial area about a 15 minute cab ride from our hotel near the Rijksmuseum.
  6. We weren’t surprised at all. Actually, we’re relieved they canceled. Glad they didn’t wait any longer.
  7. Yes, they’re still offering the 125% credit.
  8. It’s official. We just got an email from Viking - all cruises canceled through March 31.
  9. It seems inevitable that spring cruises will be canceled. Our March cruise disappeared from My Viking Journey a couple of days ago. It makes me wonder if cancellations are imminent.
  10. Just a bit more local news re: Viking’s Mississippi venture.... https://www.twincities.com/2020/11/08/viking-river-cruises-from-st-louis-and-new-orleans-to-st-paul-sold-out-for-2022/
  11. Dear QofE - sorry. I just got caught up in the fun. Didn’t mean to break the rules. ☹️
  12. Right! We’re hoping we’ll get to Speyer again one day.
  13. I’m really enjoying this little challenge! Here’s my contribution to the fun. This was taken in one of our favorite stops, although we just docked there - no tours offered.
  14. I agree with the previous two posts regarding the heat and the crowds in the summer. We took a Rhine cruise in August of 2018. It was in the 90’s the whole time so made for some uncomfortable touring. Low water is another issue. There are lots of posts here from people whose river cruises turned into bus tours because of low water. Our ship made it all the way to Basel, but it was touch and go.
