We arrived in Nuremberg at 2:00. Since we couldn’t board the boat until 3:00, we stopped at a little bistro in the train station for beers, sausages and pretzels. One hour later and fully tanked, we took a taxi to the port. There were only two river boats docked so it was easy to find ours, the Amadeus Royal.
We boarded and were shown to our room…#218….a nice sized room with a picture window. Storage was great! Our clothes were easily accommodated in the closets and drawers and our suitcases conveniently rolled under the bed. The bathroom was enormous (by boat standards)…..we could even turn around in the shower!
We met some of our traveling companions….a South African and Turkish couple who are starting a tour company and an Australian couple who’s young adult children rebelled and chose not to join them on the cruise…..already paid in full…..there’ll be two empty cabins this trip.
Then came dinner….shrimp and smoked fish with salad, mushroom soup with truffle essence, pike, duck in orange sauce, gingerbread & ice cream. Absolutely delicious!
The bed was turned down when we returned to our room….just as in Munich…..twin beds pushed together each with a duvet….but this time, the duvet was tucked in between the beds…..guess they frown on cavorting. But it was comfy…..and we fell into a sound sleep.
Schlafen Sie gut…..sleep tight
