  3. River Ambassador
We landed in Cologne on Sunday afternoon and were met by a UniWorld representative. There were about 20 of us (mostly senior citizens). We were told to follow her carrying/pushing our own luggage and carry-ones. The walk turned out to be from one end of the terminal to the next, and then outside a few blocks to a waiting bus! If I ever take another uniworld cruise, I will arrange to take a cab (which were lined up right outside the area where we met the uniworld rep) to the ship. We chose this cruise because of the Jewish Heritage component. We got on the ship in Cologne on Sunday afternoon, and hoped to visit the Ludwig Museum on Monday, but all museums are closed on Mondays. The rest of the cruise was good, for the most part. We would have liked more time to explore on our own, but we were on a tight schedule. The food was excellent, and the wait staff were very professional and friendly. One of the nicest touches was the Friday night Shabbat candle lighting ceremony held outside on the sun deck. After the cruise, they took us to a nice hotel for our post cruise days. The last day they took us into Munich to see a synagogue and Jewish Museum - but it was Monday, and they were CLOSED! So the guide told us about them while we stood outside in the rain! The activites on Sunday and Monday could have been switched. The state rooms were very small, but clean.

Good Cruise -But...
