We had so much fun on our recent river cruise with the club that we have decided to do it again.We are thrilled to announce that Lenné and Steve is now the official host for an AMA Waterways wine cruise on the Rhine (Basel to Amsterdam) on November 9th, 2020. Yes, that’s a year and a half away,BUT the cruise line’s offer of $1000 discount per person ends on the 31st of August, 2019.
AMA is considered an upscale river cruise line, whose focus areas are wine, food and active travel. They do offer more comfort, the option of larger cabins and a separate Chef’s Table dining room where we are sure to have a dinner “just for us” on one night of the cruise. Also the price includes not only wifi, meals, excursions, beer and wine at meals, but also a cocktail hour each evening before dinner in their spacious lounge. Plus since this is a wine cruise, there will be more winery visits and tastings among the included excursions.
What will Steve be doing as a “wine host?” Presenting 3 tastings while on board (local wines, Lenné wines, and some fun games) plus Lenné wines will be featured during a special 5-course dinner during the cruise.
Since this cruise begins in Basel, we will be spending a few days touring Alsace prior to the start of the cruise, for anyone who is interested in joining us. (We will explore wineries, local culture and food, as we did in Beaune this year). We finish up in Amsterdam on Monday Nov 16th, which is a GREAT place to explore for a few days if you haven’t been there, and that will give you time to get home for Thanksgiving, which in 2020 will be on Thursday November 26th.
There will be a representative from AMAWaterways giving a presentation on Saturday, August 17th at 11am. We’ll have some door prizes and charcuterie for those who attend. You can also ask our own Anne McGee, the travel agent, any questions you have via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
$400per person depositsare neededbefore the end of Augustto capture that $1000 discount. These deposits can be made through Anne before or after the presentation. Cabins are not being held, so the earlier you book, the better cabin selection you will have. (Balances are not due until 90 days before the trip, or in this case, August of 2020.)
We’d love for you to join us on what is sure to be a fantastic trip full of new insights and new friends.
