River Cruising on the Rhine 2012

I apologise for my delay in contacting you in writing to thank you for all the arrangements you made for our holiday. It was really relaxing and enjoyable. The changeovers at Frankfurt Airport were rather a hassle (inevitable when moving between buildings and their system for security) but we did get through.

The Amadeus Elegant  is a wonderful boat with excellent service from the crew and delicious meals. We had good table companions too – a couple of Australian ladies, of similar age to us, who had played as a doubles pair for Australia in the 1950’s and were due to at Wimbledon (as spectators) during the first Wimbledon week as guests of Frank Sedgeman (a former singles champion). Such is one of the delights of a cruise.

After a very wet start in Amsterdam the weather improved to be warm and sunny so we could enjoy sitting out on deck and joining in some of the excursions.

I’ve attached just this one photograph as a sample of some of the wonderful scenery we saw; this was in the Rhine Gorge just by the Lorollei Rock.
