Danube Cruise, March 2023
Steve and Karen will return to the rivers of Europe in Spring of 2023! This AMA Waterways Wine Cruise sails from Vilshofen Germany along the majestic Danube eastward to Budapest, with stops in small UNESCO wine towns, Abbeys, castles and famous imperial cities such as Vienna. We finish in Budapest, with the opportunity to explore that amazing city as well as the famous Tokaj wine region, and then there will be options for a custom extension to Croatia and Slovenia.
As the Wine Host for the cruise, Steve will be presenting 3 wine tastings on the ship, exploring the famous wines of the area that might be unfamiliar to many of us. AMA Waterways will also create a dinner paired to Lenné wines, so we will have the best of both worlds on our week aboard.
We have been offered an amazing discount of $1,000 per person in a double occupancy cabin, but this offer is limited and currently only applies to bookings made before October 31, 2021. All that is needed to book and hold a cabin is a deposit of $400 per person. Please email our Travel Advisor and Lenne staffer Anne McGee for more information about the types of cabins available on the AMA Viola ship, and any other details.
Rhine Cruise, November 2021
You might remember that Steve and Karen were all set to take the Wine Club and friends on a Wine Cruise on the Rhine in the Fall of 2020. Of course, along with so much else in 2020, that did not happen. AMA Waterways was very kind and flexible and worked with us to move our group to what is the exact same time and location for 2021.
The Rhine, from Basel to Amsterdam, from November 11th to 18th. That gives us a week to get home for Thanksgiving on the 25th, or the opportunity to explore Amsterdam and other parts of Europe for the holiday.
We are also still planning an optional add-on to spend some time exploring the Alsace wine region before the cruise gets underway. So if you were talking with your friends and family over the holidays and decided to get away together when all this is over, please consider joining our Rhine Wine Cruise.
Reach out to Anne McGee to book your spot, or with any questions.
AMA is 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. 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.
We’d love for you to join us on what is sure to be a fantastic trip full of new insights and new friends. Click the images below to see the full sized brochure pages.
