  1. Thank you for the explanation. We’re using EZ Air for the first time next year and want to make sure we understand.
  2. Is the benefit of using the Early Ticketing option to be able to select seats? Or to protect the price from going up? Or? Thank you
  3. It looks like a lovely way to travel! Thank you for sharing your photos and experience.
  4. I’m so sorry to hear the ship is still having engine problems. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for you.
  5. Good news! I’m glad your sailing is looking promising.
  6. Brandybit, We weren’t told when the ship would be repaired. I read on another site that Gate 1 had also cancelled the sailing after ours. I hope you have a better experience than we did.
  7. We’ve been told by Gate 1 that the ship is now in dry dock to receive a new engine. We and at least 14 others opted to leave the group. The proposed land/bus tour was a different itinerary than we’d see on the ship and no reimbursement was mentioned for any who decided to stay with the group.
  8. We’re currently onboard Gate 1’s Monarch Princess On Day 3 of our 7-day Danube cruise from Budapest to Regensburg. Our departure from Bratislava last night didn’t occur due to an engine problem. Gate 1 brought a technician onboard this morning while we were touring Vienna with an 1 1/2 bus ride in each direction but he could not resolve the issue. We just received an update from cruise director to let us know a repair team is on the way and will arrive sometime tomorrow. Our tours have been modified to still allow us to see Melk Abby tomorrow afternoon but we’ll have a 2 hour bus ride in each direction and shortened time in Melk. We now have a 16-hour boat ride and passage through locks to get caught up with our schedule after/if the technicians complete the repairs so it’s looking doubtful. This is our third river cruise but first time with Gate 1. We are enjoying the crew and passengers but aren’t sure if this company is the one for us in future. We understand issues can occur but are disappointed right now as are others. Hopefully anyone scheduled to board the ship in Regensburg on June 16 will have smooth sailing.
