We ended our day enjoying the sun deck, tasting the local beer with staff, having another delicious dinner and listening to local musicians who were amazing!

Day 4 Started out cruising the Rhine and the Lorelei. We saw many castles, vineyards and cute towns. Perfect morning. Oh and they served an amazing hot chocolate!

Awesome day today cruising down the Main. The crew decorated the ship for the 4th. We sat outside watching as we entered and exited the locks and went under some very low bridges.

Just wanted to thank you for taking us all along on your sailing.

Really enjoying your photo's and your detailed reviews - 

was really surprised at the interior shots of the ship you posted above - such a spacious and expansive atrium - for a minute I was not sure it was of the ship! Having only sailed on one river cruise (so far!) on AMA Serena - it's atrium/lobby was much smaller. 

 

thank you again!

I’ll post a video of the ship once I’m home. Yes the ship has a lot of space. We only have 66 or so people onboard. Nice!

HBCruiser,   Great to see that you are having a great cruise.

 

i was wondering if you had to check out of your hotel, before you visited the Anne Frank Museum.  If yes, what did you do with your carryon/valuables?

 

thank you.

Did you have that glass blower yet?  If it's the same guy we had...he's not only amazing at what he does, but also really funny.

So glad you only have so few passengers....that's about what we had.  Did you get to the Mechanical Music Cabinet yet...being that you were in Rudesheim?  Being a musician, I was amazed at that place.

We did check out before we left. Tauck asked us to leave our luggage, including carryon luggage, in our rooms.  They gave us extra Tauck tags for carryon. We were told to meet back at the hotel at 3 pm to get on busses that took us to the ship. All bags were in our cabin when we arrived. Easy!

Dinner last night was the Chef’s special 6-course meal. So delicious! I’m glad I have stretchy pants!🤣🤣

It looked delicious.  Thanks for the pictures.  For this special dinner could you still come to the dining room at any time when it was open or did everyone need to start at the same time.
