Beautiful scenes in towns along the Rhine River

I had an opportunity to cruise with AMA Waterways on the Rhine River in December.  We traveled from Basel, Switzerland to Amsterdam visiting towns and Christmas Markets along the way.  It was a beautiful time of the year to visit the cities and markets.  Everything was so festive with all the decorations, Gluhwein (hot wine), roasting chestnuts and the stalls with handmade gifts, food and chocolates.  Our weather was quite nice, beginning with warm days in Basel and turning cooler the further north we traveled.


The cruise line was wonderful.  The staff was very friendly and attentive.  They did an excellent job in all of the areas of the ship.  The guests on board were extremely friendly and we met so many people from all over the US.  It was a great experience and very relaxing.  With being able to sit wherever you would like for meals, you met new people and joined people that you met on the cruise.  


What a great way to prepare for the Christmas Holidays!
