Inaugural Voyage of the "Scenic Crystal"
18 April- Edmonton
Our adventure began today, a travel day to Amsterdam where we are on Air Canada (AC) to Toronto and then Lufthansa (LH) connecting via Frankfurt.
We found the leg room on this Lufthansa flight to have less room than the AC flight, this did surprise me as I was expecting something better than AC. Surprise. Total traveling time was 18 ½ hours , a little longer than the 17 ½ hours since AC was 1 hour late from Edmonton. We had to do some fast walking in Toronto to make the connection from the domestic to international flights. A good surprise was the complimentary wine and spirits on LH., now AC did not offer that.
This 9 Day Inaugural Voyage of the Scenic Crystal will leave from Amsterdam, a city of canals, and end at the cross roads of Switzerland, France and Germany , Basel. On this Scenic Tours European River cruise, we'll show you Europe at its most beautiful time. Extraordinary colours of spring along the spectacular waterways of the Rhine and Moselle Rivers.
