River Ambassador Cruise Review by aklmt
- Sail Date: October 2012
- Destination: Europe River
- Cabin Type: Standard Stateroom with French Balcony
Without going into too much detail, we found the itinerary to be rather dull. While we loved PRAGUE, we found the Riverboat stops to be repetitive. We could not distinguish the towns. Wurtzburg Miltenburg, or Bamburg, etc. Each had their signature castle or cathedral, Cobblestone streets with similar shopping areas. Many shops do not accept plastic, so have euros in your wallet. The Optional Tour to Weikersheim Palace (45 euros each) was a waste of time and $$.
We made really nice friends on the cruise, and many felt the same. There is a fitness room on board, but it was very claustrophobic and not much air circulation. Food was good. and they went out of their way to satisfy any dietary needs. Although there is not much to do after dinner, we socialized in the lounge each night, and retired to our cabin by 11PM. We had a great time, but could not recommend the itinerary.
Casual clothes are all you need. For men, a sportjacket is appropriate for 2 nights, but a tie is not necessary.
