  1. I am sure we are taking the train between the two cities and cars to and from the ship and hotel. Sounds easy enough.

    Just returned from AMASonata Tulip Time cruise

    May might be too late but you never know!!!!! All depends on their weather. We sailed March 25 and we at Keukenhof on the 30th this year and if was about 2 weeks too early. We saw beautiful tulips, inside, not out! As the above poster mentions, it is definitely not the prettiest cruise to take. But the ports are great! It was cold, dreary, dark and rainy on our trip. We knew that and were prepared for it. As to another question about laundry, it was great!!!!! Nicely folded and picked up around 9am and in our cabin before 3pm. Not as pricey as large cruise ships that I have used and done much better IMHO. We did not use the pool and we did not see anyone using it as it was cold on this trip!!!! I used the computer in the room a lot and my iPhone and iPad in the lounge and the wifi was fantastic, never a problem!!!!!!
  4. jpalbny----thanks for the info. We aren't positive if it is the Courtyard or the Munich Marriott which is a bit further. We will each have one roll aboard and tote along with just one medium beg between us. That makes my DH pulling 2 bags and me just 1, not that difficult. I guess a taxi to and from the station would work easier. I will research schedules. We have asked our TA to check with AMAWaterways to see if we can use their without their hotel pkg. Maybe.
  5. How far is the train station from the ship AND the Marriott? Do you have to schlep bags? Is there plenty of bag storage on the train? For us, it isn't the money, it is the difficulty and physical level with the bags.

    It is what I did the day after we made final payment and got a printout confirmation which I presented to the cruise mgr when we were on board and all 3 of our pre booked tours were indeed booked and confirmed.

    Hi Pat! Yes, there are limited edition tours----no charge, but pre-book and limited capacity. AND there are optional, charge tours offered that can also be pre-booked. Once final payment has been made, go on their web site (whether you booked with a TA or not) and log in and proceed through cruise check in and then there is an option for selecting tour options and reserving online. They make it VERY easy. Hope this helps!!!!!
  10. I apologize if this has been answered, but my search did not give me a difinitive answer. We will be leaving our ship in Regensburg and want to spend a couple of days in Munich at the city center Marriott. We are not mobility challenged and not taking too much luggage, but we really don't "do" too much train transportation. Are private drivers available, tour guides, etc for a resaonable price? Also if I understand it correctly, taxi to airport from said hotel in Munich is around 40-60 Euros???? Thanks in advance!!!

    On our recent cruise, we were offered a short morning tour and the afternoon options for both Brussels and Bruges. Many people did all!!!! We saw the Doubletree too, very nice location.

    Frank the Renaissance was nice, like all Marriott properties but I have to say the tub/shower was a bit high and tough to get in and out of for short legs. Very centrally located, breakfasts were great, we did menu, not the buffet and overall a great experience. Would return!
