The next group trip for patrons of Travel With Chardoul, Inc is in the north of Europe. This is a great cruise up the Rhine River, beginning with an optional extension in Amsterdam for two nights and ending with an optional four nights in Switzerland, split between Lucerne and Zurich.
Where did this trip come from and why does it sound familiar? I had originally scheduled this trip for August 2020, but with the Coronavirus pandemic, moved it to August 2021.
I chose AmaWaterways because of a past experience. I used this river cruise company for a very successful group trip in Portugal; not only the one-cruise up and down the Douro River (with all of the great wineries that we visited) but time in Lisbon, a royal palace in Sintra, and the trip to Porto to board our innovative cruise ship.
But why? You ask why promote a trip that begins in 12 months? Because AmaWaterways has provided a deal where the shipboard costs are reduced by $250 per person as we have secured a group rate. However, as we are dealing with a river cruiser with limited number of staterooms, the availability and stateroom selection dwindles day by day.
In addition, the optional pre-cruise two nights in Amsterdam and the four-night post-cruise in Lucerne and Zurich are less expensive than they were for the 2020 version.
