  2. Bordeaux & Loire with friends on AMA in June. Anyone out there on this cruise? Carole

  10. Never saw this on 2 prior AMA. Were these men from a group of buddies that booked a special group rate? I've noticed on ocean cruises that groups appear to set up their own others be dammed rules. Any response from AMA?
  11. Beautiful photos. Leaving next June for Bordeaux.I'm drooling already Carole
  12. Chef's Table - Have done this on our 2 prior cruises. Its a fixed menu with wine pairing. The portions are "tastings" size and there are usually 3 of each course- except soup. Service is excellent. You can watch the chef prepare your make- he is in a glass enclosed kitchen.NB: I have a nut allergy and AMA was scrupulous in making sure nuts were omitted from all of my meals Have a great trip Carole
  13. Vienne- we had a fabulous guide (Jean). He had a great sense of history. This is an under appreciated city- Roman ruins that you can walk up to. Avignon- I did the city tour & then walked around. Interesting & fun. DH wen to the Pont du Garde( & 2 yrs later still can't get over it) Tournon- Did the wine tasting & then walked around the town. Enjoyable. We are not into hiking . Enjoy Carole
  14. Did AMALYRA Normandy last June. Fabulous cruise itinerary. Monet's House & gardens- beautiful gardens, nice walking area. Gift shop a little pricey but then again when is the next time you will be there. Normandy cemetery & beaches- very emotional (dgt & niece of WW2 vets) very moving Taps ceremony at noon.Read your history for a full appreciation. The small towns along the way are very photogenic-get out and walk- you will be rewarded with wonderful sights & memories Have a great cruise Carole
  15. Coffee, tea, cocoa and snack all day -machine next to bar. Finger sandwiches, soups, cookies-more food than is humanly possible to ingest also by bar. Do not fill up on snacks the food is excellent Carole
