SS Antoinette Day 6

Day 6 on the SS Antoinette

We arrived early this morning in Koblenz, a lovely Medieval town where the two rivers Rhine and Moselle converge.

Our guides were waiting as we left the SS Antoinette at 9am and again using the Quiet Vox we had a tour of the little narrow alleys and streets. There are whimsical statues and fountains throughout the old part of the town which add to the uniqueness of this place.

Koblenz

Preparing for Christmas in Koblenz

Following our tour we took the cable car to the Fort overlooking Koblenz where we enjoyed a panoramic view of the town.

We returned to the boat for a German lunch which of course included sausages and saurkruit before making our way back into town to explore a little more and enjoy the opportunity to do some shopping. As we were not leaving Koblenz until 10pm this evening it was nice to have the opportunity for a relaxing visit.

During pre dinner cocktails in the lounge, the Cruise Director provided information about the disembarkation procedure. Each person or couple is treated as individuals and the transfer arrangements are provided by taxi or shared bus, either to the airport or a hotel in Amsterdam. If guests require train information then Uniworld will do the research and provide this information. In reality guests will be departing the boat as early as 5am and some not until 2pm. For the early departures breakfast will be provided and the guests staying later are given lunch before they go. All part of the excellent attention to detail provided.

The head of housekeeping then explained about the settlement of guest’s on board accounts and the payment of gratuities.

Dinner this evening was followed by some guest entertainers who provided a ’songs from the shows’ performance which the guests from America particularly enjoyed.

We visited the Leopard Lounge and had a look through the various board games provided for guests to use, there is a wide variety together with playing cards. A useful way to while away the time spent on deck during summer cruises.
