  1. I have apparently posted this to the wrong board (River Cruise Ports) with a note that it was moved to forum River Cruising. I just figured out that I do not have to choose the sub heading and can choose the heading. I am excited to research those threads.
  2. I chose to stay in Bern for two nights. After we rent the car we would like to go to hotel Pilatus Kulm (if open) for late lunch and then to the hotel to check in. The second day we plan to go to Geneva. I would love to stay in Geneva but the drive back to the Basel airport for a 2:00 flight is too long. I have rented a car at the Basel Airport Switzerland side. We can take a cab from the port to the Hertz car rental. Unless anyone has a better idea☺️
  3. If anyone is still following - Is there a rental car agency close to the Basel port? Or that picks you up at the Basel Port?
  4. We will be on the Viking Ullur. We chose Viking for the Explorer Suites on the back.
  5. This made me laugh out loud. (No disrespect intended.) I live in the Atlanta area yesterday at noon our forecast was a solid NO RAIN before Saturday. At 5:30 we had flooding rainstorms.
  6. We are booked. Thanks for the advise about the docking situation. That helped us decide between an AA and an ES. Lots of pieces to the puzzle of this trip. Now I just need ideas for a hotel in Basel post-cruise. We are planning on a Vacation Rental for pre-cruise in Amsterdam with our daughter and grand daughter.
  7. We are booking a Rhine River cruise in June 2020 traveling Amsterdam to Basel. Traveling in that direction, is there a better side of the ship to be on for the best views?
  8. We were in a deck 11 aft Oceania Suite on the Marina. The suite itself is a little smaller than the Oceania Suite on deck 12, But the wrap around deck was a big plus for us. We entertained another couple or two in the suite on several occasions and there was plenty of room. The media room is quite small - just a love seat, end tables, and a coffee table. I did enjoy it for watching television while my husband napped. There is not a television in the living room. We enjoyed it so much that we are in the same aft Oceania Suite next month for New England.
  9. http://www.alltransfersinrome.com/ they were great. Nice autos, nicely dressed, very helpful with luggage, and a great price.
  10. Yes we did. Fantastic price. You can email me at heartfelttraveler@aol.com to discuss privately. We are actually traveling with another couple that we take several trips a year with. How about you guys?
  11. The Hurtigruten cruise is December 8, 2020 (EZE-USH). We are actually planning on arriving in Buenos Aires on December 6 for two nights pre cruise. What dates are you sailing?
  12. We just booked this ship for December 2020 and got a fantastic price. We sailed Hurtigruten on a Norway Coastal Cruise February 2016 for the Northern Lights. Looking forward to Antarctica.
  13. We did a tour with Bora Bora H2O in February 2019. I have already booked with him again for October 2020. He only took four. He is getting a new boat for six. http://www.boraborah2o.com/
  14. I may have answered you post on the Celebrity site. we did this on the Xpedition in July 2016. Both the Galapagos and Manchu Picchu were excellent. First class all the way. We had 14 (I think) for Manchu Picchu. We were in small very comfortable buses on land. The train was wonderful. We were 60 and 68 at the time. Some were older then us but very fit. We got to Manchu Picchu about 10:00 am and went with our guide until the buffet lunch. We then had about 4 hours to explore on our own. Then Tea in the Sanctuary hotel. Some continued to explore during teatime. Then the Hiram Bingham dinner train back. The whole experience in Lima, the Sacred Valley, and Manchu Picchu was outstanding. we have friends who own an adventure tour company in San Cristobal Galapagos Ecuador. We were able to see them for a few hours when we were on that island. We chose a cruise rather than their company to see more islands easier. This is a YouTube video of our trip. This video is about the travelers as much as the sites to document that we were “there.” https://youtu.be/2ctjPVgERjU
