    Best Rolling Backpack Luggage (9x14x22)?

    Thank you for the link that is very helpful. I did use last summer a 21x14x9 for a my Europe river cruise hard case and worked very well. However, this summer trip will be more one night stays and the group is recommending a bag.

  3. I hope I chose the correct thread for my post. Can anyone recommend a very lightweight rolling backpack that is 9x14x22? I like the idea of the backpack but am a little worried about my back. Therefore having a option to roll would be nice. This would be for a international travel.
  4. I was wondering what time the Viking Rhine Strasbourg tour ends and what time mass is at the cathedral (think 11)? I have read conflicting things.

    Rhine water levels 2018 and similar topics

    Next Tuesday I plan on being on the Viking ship going down the Rhine. I was wondering if there is any concern with water levels or guest having to switch ships?

    Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, baggage claim ATM

    To clarify I would like to go to the ATM before I get picked up by Viking so after customs. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  9. Can anyone confirm that there is Netherlands bank (ABN, ING) ATMs at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol baggage claim? Where are they located(can’t seem to locate a baggage claim area map)? Do these ATMs ask if you want certain denominations or do you put in a odd number and hope for the best? Are there restrooms near by? Sent from my iPad using Forums

    Ladies what clothes do you pack for your Europe river cruise?

    I purchased a great very light weight Capri skimmer https://mobile.kohls.com/product/prd-3205423/petite-sonoma-goods-for-life-poplin-skimmer-capris.jsp?prdPV=2&userPFM=capri%20skimmer%20sanoma These should go with my Keens and my croc sandals. I also purchased a lightweight dress on Amazon. I am going to pack one pair of shorts and a few lightweight tops. Sent from my iPad using Forums

    Anne Frank Tickets with Introductory program

    I got up at 3am to buy tickets. No tickets listed, the date is not highlighted and times are not listed at the bottom. I took 1 hour off (10:30am) and still no tickets listed. The 15th is in two weeks. I keep clicking the calendar as to not time out my session. I am wondering how many more hours of this I am going to have to look at no times listed. I wish they would say tickets are not for sale yet or we are sold out for a private event something besides just blank white space. The museum closes in four hours and I hope I don't have to do this tomorrow. Thanks for letting me vent.

    Amsterdam Food, Diary Free?

    I am looking forward to my visit to Amsterdam pre cruise visit. The Amsterdam food looks yummy. I will be traveling with someone who has a allergy to dairy. Does anyone know if the following can be bought dairy free and if so where? We are hoping to stop at Albert Cyprus market. -Bitterballen (i don't know if these have milk or not) - Stroopwafel - poffertjes Any others I have missed? Is there any food that I should bring home that would be OK with customs (besides chocolate as European chocolate does not have milk)? Sorry for the misspelling I wish you can fix title of the post but CC will not let you.
  14. Your post has me curious I have Global Entry and Mom does not. I was thinking of ditching the Global Entry and use the mobile passport as it would be easier for mom. My mother lives with me so we share the same address. Therefore would Global Entry work for both of us? Can't delete this post but just found out from the boarder protection page " My travel companions (children, spouse or co-travelers) are not Global Entry members; can they come through the Global Entry kiosk with me? No, only Global Entry members can use the Global Entry kiosk. "
