  1. Standard cabins are larger than the french balcony. so for space purposes the standard or veranda are larger. We go standard and like everyone says you go to sleep and shower. I've found the beds very comfortable and yes there is noise going through locks, but that is the fun of it. One year on another cruise line we were on the main and then on the danube and it was late in the season, we could see ice chunks floating by. We felt like we were on an ice breaker, now that was noisy but interesting!
  2. Entshuldige! We like Munich too! My husband loves the coffee shop at Dahlmyers. He has the Kannchen of Kaffee.
  3. And now Steamboats you are in Passau, another of our favorite German cities. Several years ago a travelling companion got sick on the cruise and wouldn't see a doctor, then we arrive in Passau go to our hotel and then she wants the Rote Kruez to get her and go to the Hospital. The Klinikum in Passau treated her very well. She was there for 5 days, then well enough to fly home. We thank the staff at the Passauer Wolf Hotel and the Hospital, they were caring and excellent in treatment. And I might say it only cost $2400 for 5 nights in the hospital with infusion, xrays etc--all paid by travel insurance including our hotel rooms. As to how things are in Texas, I finally got my hair done after a good 6 months. Still not at Church maybe next week. Numbers are down, but we are still very cautious about going out too much. All face masks used. Still have not been to a restaurant, but maybe next week too. Hope things start improving everywhen and stay improved. Certainly this is a year we all can forget.
  4. And don't forget Karlstadt am Main, a mere 15 min drive or train from Wurzburg. Lovely small walled town. Great people. We stay in rooms above a Restaurant at Zum Fehmelbauer -- a farm house from the 1500's. Lovely proprieters, the food at the restaurant is Franken, but oh so good. Especially during Spargel season. Wonderful Eis Cafe (ice cream shop), although they serve drinks too, the best Irish Coffee outside of Dublin, Cafe Venizia.
  5. Just got the e-mail and vouchers from Viking cancelling our Nov. 2020 Romantic Danube cruise.
  6. Just went on Viking Web site and all 2020 cruises are gone. Also went to my Nov. 22, 2020 Romantic Danube and cannot access my booking. It looks like a major announcement from Viking is coming today. 2020 has been a travel waste for us. I sure hope 2021 is better!!!
  7. Yes, the Danube Waltz.
  8. Which ship were you on. We have booked the Prestige in Nov. 21 and all sailings now say sold out. That ship had a few single cabins.
  9. Deine Reise brings back so many memories of our November Trip last year. We had Mittag Essen at Quinta da Avessada and can never forget the Mr. Bean, one of the highlights of our trip. We have a Danube trip scheduled in November, however, it is not looking good for us here in the US to travel to Europe this year. I am enjoying your trip report.
  10. We had a Globus Polish escape with airfare in March which was cancelled by Globus, and they would not honor the desk we got. If we re booked for next year we would end up paying a couple thousand more for airfare. So good luck on Avalon. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  11. I"ve been to Lohr and the Schneewittchen Castle/House. Quite an interesting museum, and of course the famous mirror. Nice town.
  12. This is interesting. We are booked in Nov. of 2020 on the Romantic Danube and everything is fine on MVJ. However, we are also booked Nov.2021 on the Danube Waltz-Viking Prestige--the booking is now locked. I wonder what that means---------
  13. Since we had been to Paris before and just spent 2 days in Paris, we quite enjoyed LePecq. We went to the grocery by the docking place and Post Office. We then walked up the hill to another little town, I forgot the name. Had a very quaint Christmas Market with a booth that sold Fois Gras, and free samples--heaven. Nice castle to look around, Starbucks if you must--good bathroom place. After the hustle and bustle of Paris this was very nice.
  14. We just got off the Freedom, has lobster choice, lamb chops, probably something else you may be able to download the menu from the Carnival web site or app. The art dessert is fantastic, also if you like cheesecake it is a biiiig piece. I believe there is chicken too.
  15. We were on the 1-12-20 Carnival Freedom 7 day cruise. The Meet n Mingle was only offered by invite on the 5th day of the cruise after the Nassau stop. It was scheduled at 6pm, most everyone had dinner at 6 so at least half the meet and mingle including myself did not attend. We found that Carnival should have had it the first sea day so we could all meet. I wonder if it was intentional on Carnival's part. On the first day I did ask at Guest Services when it would be and was told they will be scheduling it. Oh well.
