I recently had the opportunity of doing a river cruise on the Danube River with AMAWaterways. I traveled with my sister, who is a recent Amputee with a prosthetic leg. This was her first trip to Europe, and in her words she was "a little hesitant to go" because of her disability. She was so impressed by the staff at how accommodating and willing to do anything to help her enjoy her trip of a lifetime.
We flew into Munich 2 days prior and stayed at the Airport Hilton. I chose the Airport Hilton, because of the convenience of being connected to the airport. Normally I would recommend staying in the city of Munich. It was easy to hop on the train from the airport to Munich, to spend the day exploring the city. There are plenty of things to do while in Munich, such as Dachau concentration camp, or Neuschwanstein Castle. We choose to stay in the Marienplatz seeing the Glockenspiel and the Hofbrauhaus *a traditional German biker beer hall, with a dark past). Upstairs in the Hofbrauhause is where Hitler first started the Nazi party. Downstairs we enjoyed a Weisswurst sausage with sweet mustard and a pretzel. Oh and did I mention the bakeries in Europe? Yum!
We arrived on board the cruise in Vilshofen and were greeted by the amazing staff. That evening we were treated to a performance, of Bavarian folk music and dancing. This is a mini "Oktoberfest" that is held exclusively for the guests on board the AmaWaterways. Some of the stops along the Danube were Passau, nicknamed the "City of Three Rivers", Linz, Weissenkirchen, Vienna, Bratislava, and finally Budapest. Tours are included in every port. They separate the tours into active walkers and gentle walkers.
AmaWaterways offers a variety of onboard entertainment with exceptional performers and guest speakers. The ships are smaller and more intimate. AmaWaterways ships have fewer guests onboard and are never crowded. You make friends with people from around the world. I look forward to my next AmaWaterways river cruise!
