  1. Hi Laura Macky, Thank you for your very informative post. We just returned home from our week with Viking from Amsterdam to Basil. We also had to do a ship transfer and completely miss Rudesheim. Fortunately we were able to meet our boat in Cologne & continue our journey on the Rhine to our final destination of Basil, Switzerland. Our ship also missed traveling down that part of the Rhine where all the castles line the shore (starting in Lorelei). They got us on a lunch cruise, wine & beer & lunch. Weather all week was phenomenal. I was a little disappointed that we couldn’t always dock at the towns it appeared we would dock (from viewing the video or looking at pictures). A bit deceiving I feel. Sometimes our French veranda view was the side of another longboat we were tethered to, other times a wall or a remote docking area outside the main port. Our cruise director was phenomenal! As was the staff. All in all we had a wonderful time! We did 2 bike tours that really made this trip. As well as a winery and a castle or two. Some included excursion—some guides were better than others. I would venture out on my own more next time. No time to do both! Will definitely do a river cruise again! suejeanette
  2. We are finishing up our Uniworld cruise Budapest To Amsterdam tomorrow. It allowed us to swap ships twice. We started on the River Empress went on the River Princess and then on to the River Queen. Each one treated us excellently. We saw places on the Rhine where you could actually walk to the other side.
  3. We were just on a tauck river cruise on the Rhine and it had to be modified and shortened due to the low water levels. It is really bad on the Rhine and a few locals said it hasn’t been that bad since 2003. At first we we wondered why the cruise even took place because the water levels were SO LOW and virtually unsailable in places. They said that the previous cruise, that came from Basel to Amsterdam, completed. The explanation we were given was that they forecast a 48 hr period which entails not only rain but other things such as water release from other places into the Rhine and other things I can’t remember. Rains were forecasted all week before our trip but as the days wore on, the forecast kept changing to sunny and warm. But on the flip side, I can’t imagine any rain would fill the Rhine where it needed to be within a week but that’s my perception. We docked in xantas I believe...sorry if I didn’t get the name right, and after the day trip by bus to Koln to see the cathedral, they had to bus us to another ship at Rüdesheim around a section of the Rhine that was almost dry...we saw small boats dry docked in the middle of it later during one of our bus tours! After we settled into the second ship, we did one trip by bus to see (I think Cochem) which was nice and then they had to move the boat because where we were docked was starting to become too shallow. They docked at a town they’ve never docked at called Nierstein (not much to see there) but it was deep enough to temporarily dock the ship. They did a day bus trip to Trier and back which we didn’t do because it was 3 hrs each direction so we elected to do a small winery which was fun but not what we had signed up for. At this point we decided to go home because the boat was not going to sail any further, and our trip was shortened by six days. Tauck did plan a last minute small boat tour of the pretty part of the Rhine to see the castle-lined area from the small boats since the riverboat couldn’t cruise that area; however after that they had planned to drive straight to Basel, Switzerland the next day skipping Heidelberg and Strasbourg ending the trip a few days early. We didn’t really want to do all that because it also meant we were looking for a hotel since they were getting in earlier than planned and there was a huge tennis tournament causing low vacancies in hotels. At this point it was easier for us to go to the Frankfurt airport a half hour away from Nierstein where our boat was docked to fly home to San Francisco. So so what did I think of all this? Very disappointing to say the least. Our cruise director was top notch though. Maggie worked her tail off to still provide tours for the passengers like the small boat cruise and the winery. I can’t imagine being in her position taking direction from corporate and still trying to satisfy all the disgruntled passengers. Some people can be very difficult during these types of events. We didn’t fly using Tauck air and in this instance I think that work to our advantage. We were able to easily change our flight to an earlier date and come home when we wanted. I think Tauck handled it pretty well so far, but I don’t have the final decision since we just got home and it’ll be a while before the financial aspects are settled. However, I do have faith that they will make it good. They even sent someone from corporate to the boat to explain to all of us what was going on. We are satisfied customers of Tauck in the past and I really do believe they did the best they could. The one thing I still think is that our cruise probably should’ve been canceled in the first place due to the low waters, but then I’m not in the business of making money on the river cruises. Oh and one more point....trip insurance is worth it!

    HAL FUTURE CRUISERS' LIST Updated October 19th, 2018 [/U] We all love to hear what cruises you are booked on. I post the Bon Voyage threads 7 days before sailing so, to be included in this, you need to post your details here to allow sufficient time to be on the updated Future Cruise Listing. It’s better to post earlier than later but if it is later please post THREE weeks in advance to make sure it doesn’t get missed. We would also be interested to know if this is your first cruise, your first HAL cruise or if you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary. Details needed are in the 2nd post of this thread. Please use REPLY and not QUOTE when posting to this thread. Using 'Quote' makes a very long thread and difficult for others to read. While this list is a lot of fun, please don't mistake it for a Roll Call thread. You can go to the Roll Call Section here on Cruise Critic and find your cruise to sign up there too. That's where your Meet & Greet planning, tour sharing, and other activities specific to your cruise will be happening.

  7. Just to close this one off, both ships (AmaVenita, AmaVerde) continued on straight back to Amsterdam where they are currently moored with no cruises scheduled for the next three weeks as their next cruises were cancelled.
  8. I agree with you. This "Nieuw" BS has to end, and hopefully after Statendam comes out.
  9. If you are planning a river cruise out of Amsterdam in the spring, you might consider flying-in a few days early to enjoy the city and its region. If your timing is good, a trip out to Keukenhof is an amazing day. That park has the best tulip collection on earth and is something not to be missed. You can Google the place. We do those kind of things on our own, but you can also book tours. Hank
  10. Perhaps we will get an announcement just before, or just after, Nieuw Statendam's launch at the end of the year.
  11. I wish they would build two more like the Eurodam and the Nieuw Amsterdam
  12. The Nieuw Amsterdam has the BB King Blues Club. That’s THE best show around. Don’t miss it!

  15. I'm getting pretty good at tracking ships. There are six Viking ships downriver from the Rhine Gorge. Three ships are supposed to depart from Amsterdam in the next two days; two for Basel, the other for Budapest. There is only one ship in Amsterdam (Eir). She appeared to stick to the proper schedule from Cologne with a four hour stop in Kinderdijk today (Thursday). Two ships are heading north. One just left Dusseldorf (Mimir), which is where it arrived this morning from the north. I assume traffic slowed her down so she couldn't reach Cologne or Koblenz in time to disembark passengers in those locations. Or perhaps that bomb had something to do with it. Another ship just left Koblenz (Hlin), which I guess means she'll have to move fast to arrive in Amsterdam by Saturday. Hope they don't find another bomb. None of these ships are the ones that were scheduled to pick up passengers this weekend. Hurrah for Viking and their identical ships.
  16. It's the Amsterdam HAL roll call. Aug 26-Sept 9, 2019 Seattle Anchorage Round Trip - Great Alaskan Explorer cruise It appears about a third of the way down. There are now just three subscribers. It was never an overly active thread of probably a dozen or so following and posting. Mine was the last post. I suspect you have skills I've never acquired or even know I needed. Thanks Ruth
  17. Not to confuse things with the Sommelier dinner but there was a Master Chef dinner on two of my last cruises. (NA in March and Zuiderdam in September) - Nieuw Amsterdam was in the Tamarind with Andy Matsuda ($89/pp) - Zuiderdam was in the Pinnacle Grill with David Burke ($120/pp)
  18. Hello there, I am due to sail from Amsterdam to Basel, departing Sunday the 21st. Was curious if there is any hope of Not doing the ship swap I was notified may happen. 🤞🏻🤞🏻 Kathie Sailing VR-Kara, now Hiln
  19. JP and Notamermaid, Thanks for the notes. Yes, the Royal Emerald is the old Scenic Emerald. I agree with JP that there’s a LOT of the Netherlands. Also, there are some very long days. What does one do in Hoorn after arriving at 2:00 a.m. and not departing until 9:00 p.m. There are similar all-day stays in Middelburg Haarlem, and Nijmegen. I suspect that the Ghent day will include the Brugges excursion. The thing that really sold us on the Teeming cruise was the match-up with Nicko. We’ll get off the ship in Amsterdam and catch a train at 8:08 that will get us to Saarbrucken at 2:15 p.m. (one change in Mannheim). Also the prices are incredible. Cabins for a 10-day cruise start at $1,299 per person for a 160 sq. ft. standard cabin and go up to $2700 for the 325 sq. ft. Panorama Suite on the back corner of the ship with a balcony at the back and windows on the side. We were also looking at a post-Nicko 8-day Deggendorf to Budapest cruise on Avalon, and a top-deck 200 sq. ft. cabin was $3,500. I don’t want to sound too decadent, but we went ahead and reserved one of the two Panorama Suites. The Nicko cruise will be something of a contrast. We’ll go from a large cabin to a small one (130 sq. ft.), but we’ll also go from flat Holland and Belgium to the gorgeous Mosel and Neckar valleys. We’re also looking forward to seeing some of the Saar. The cruise will include a tour of Stuttgart after disembarking, ending at the train station. I talked to DW about spending the night in Stuttgart, but three weeks is a long time to be away from grandchildren, so I suspect that we’ll get on a train to Frankfurt and fly home the next morning. I'll try to post from the trip. Any advice before leaving would be appreaciated.
  20. Thank you for incredibly clear instructions, lighthouse mum, which I followed faithfully, step by step. I suspect the Amsterdam roll call is still under revision/construction. Some threads have pale blue numbers showing while the majority do not. And my thread of interest is one of the 'do not' ones. I'd like to see those earlier threads all posted within this year. I've printed your instructions which might work at a later point. Ruth
  21. As of today; there are three Pinnacle-class vessels planned; Koningsdam, Nieuw Statendam and the unnamed coming out in 2021. That's not to say there won't be more in the future as Prinsendam and the last two "S"-class ships are leaving
  22. I am booked on the Viking Saga on the Rotterdam in June 2019. Oslo was a must-stop for our group of 6, as my maternal grandmother was born there. I am so excited and can't wait to explore Norway. We splurged on a Neptune suite since we are going for my (small milestone) birthday. Which is also how we chose the Rotterdam over the Nieuw Statendam, we couldn't get a Neptune suite when we were looking.
  23. Patty, No, I haven't received my docs, but in the past I didn't get them until 2-3 wks. beforehand, so I haven't thought much about it. I was previously booked on the Oct. 28 Basel to Amsterdam and got switched, so everything had to be changed. Thanks for the reminder. I'll call my TA tomorrow. She had put together a little pre-cruise pkg. for me, so that also had to be changed. I was going to stay after the cruise in Amsterdam, but now I'm spending an extra day before the cruise. Roz P.S. Things could be worse - locusts and boils?
  24. Was told by an officer on previous Nieuw Amsterdam in the early 80's that there would never be another ship named Prinsendam. He had served on the original Prinsendam.
  25. Let me mention that on Sunday our other sailawaymeister, Boytjie, will be sailing from Cape Liberty. I hope to follow both the Nieuw Amsterdam and the Summit that day. I have Baltimore Symphony tomorrow so I'm not sure if I'll make the Volendam or not. Roy
