  1. No just a few times throughout the cruise. Definitely not for every drink.
  2. On our last river cruise, which was a 7 day, we paid $326 for both of us on our invoice as we prepaid our gratuties. We like to tip extra to bartenders, our room attendant and some waiters from time to time for the excellent service. We also tip the tour guide/bus driver who usually share the tips.

  3. We had our travel agent add them to the bill and paid in Canadian funds. We tipped extra to wait staff during our cruise.
  4. John, we did Medieval Treasures last year. We live in Nova Scotia, Canada. We flew to Montreal and then had a flight to Zurich.

On the Medieval Treasures cruise we did we stay overnight and it was in Rudesheim and we had a wine tasting after supper and then had the morning to explore the town. In some cases we sailed during the night but anywhere there was great scenery we would sail in the daytime sometimes arriving at noon or 2:30 or 3:00. It really depends on your itinerary. On
  6. We took a van from the train station to our hotel across the river and it was well worth it. We were able to get the van taxi's business card and we arranged with our hotel to book him to take us to the ship. Worked out well and was very reasonable. We did the Medieval Treasures cruise as well and it was wonderful on the AmaDante. Enjoy your cruise. We stayed on the boat from Miltenburg to Wertheim and it was a lovely cruise. We walked into the town for a very quick stop and then went back on the boat and cruised with it. Only 20 of us onboard and it was a great afternoon and quite scen
