  1. I did wave as I drove past this afternoon. Don't think anyone was at home. Have a great cruise.🍻
  2. Oktoberfest 2019 has now opened its portals. Now the real rafting can begin: 🍻🍻🥨🍻🍻
  3. Linz, just outside Passau? I think you mean Lindau, abot two miles down river from Passau.
  4. There are luggage lockers available at the central (Hauptbahnhof) station in Nuremberg: https://www.bahnhof.de/bahnhof-en/Nuernberg_Hbf-3813378 https://community.bahn.de/questions/1803511-are-there-luggage-lockers-at-nuremberg-station-and-what-are-the-sizes-and-cost-of-them
  5. Best if you ask Rhine questions on the Rhine Thread:
  6. Go back and read original message, all your questions are answered there.
  7. I had a look at the river levels in Austria, everything seems OK. Even during the worst conditions last year there were not many (if any) boat swaps between passau and Vienna. I do not think it is to do with the river levels. Why do a swap Straubing - Grien, Viking of all cruise companies would have enough boats much nearer to do a swap. Also this is the only swap tghat has come to light. Austrian Levels: http://www.doris.bmvit.gv.at/fahrwasserinformation/pegelstaende-und-prognosen/grein
  8. Heard a rumour that river cruisers could be subject to freight surcharges if their BMI is above 28. 🍻
  9. Along the German Danube, expecting a week long rain session - starting Monday.
  10. FYI the US Department of State do NOT make the immigation rules for the Caribbean destinations. Most of the islands are independent and make THEIR own rules. The "Passport" is the recognised standard fir international travel, the US Passport Card is just one step up from being useless.
  11. Hope you are not flying British Airways. Suggest you post on the Brits forums, always best to get local information from the natives: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/544-uk-cruisers/ https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/545-the-pub/ https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/148-british-isleswestern-europe/
  12. You will be perfectly safe in Dubai taxis - just take the usual precautions, don't show your overflowing wallet, leave jewelary on the ship. There are women only taxis, driven by women I think they are pink in colour.
