AMA & Europe Postcard Stamps

Recommended Posts

We are doing a AMASerena Christmas on the Danube cruise - starting off with five days in Prague before getting on the boat in Nuremberg to Budapest and then onto London for four days. Our traveling partners asked if we could buy stamps anywhere in the US for postcards we'll be mailing while we are gone?

Second question is while we are on the cruise I heard or read that AMA will put stamps on post cards and mail them for you. Can somebody confirm if this is true. Also they said this was a "free" service or is it they are just charging it back to your room?

I would never try to search out stamps either in advance or at your destination; it is not worth your time. Even if you pay for them the shop will look after stamps and mailing.

I mailed my postcard this afternoon. No one asked my name or room number, so there will be no charge.

Most hotels will be happy to help you with regards to mailing postcards.

If you use AMA's postcards (provided) they post them for free.

They will also sell them at the front desk for your own cards.

Good to know about AMA posting postcards for free. We have been on AMA twice and no one ever told us. We are going on Uniworld in June do they do the same?

Going to the post office in Europe can be a cultural experience- things are done so differently than they are in the US. I still recall interesting postal experiences in Bolzano, Venice and Garmisch.

As I read the OP's original question, the answer is that it is very doubtful that you can buy European stamps anywhere in the US

Perhaps at a Philatelic (stamp collecting) dealer -- but why?

Even if you have to pay, any hotel or cruise ship will mail postcards for you. If you are sending anything else, there is a post office in the center of almost any city to mail a parcel. Nobody in North America will know the cost of postage, because it changes from time to time.
