Today we leave the beautiful city of Prague and travel to Regensburg, Germany to board the new Monarch Empress to begin our Danube River Cruise. We left at 12:45 for the 3-1/2 hour drive. It was an uneventful drive with commentary by Soma and time for a nap.
We arrived at the ship, checked in right away and had a chance to unpack before our orientation meeting and then dinner afterwards. Three different groups came together for the cruise portion of the trip for a total of 129 people. The ship is very comfortable and although our room is small we were able to.find a place for everything.
Tomorrow is a walking tour of Regensburg. The Internet went down and could be spotty from here on out. I am doing this on my phone, thus the brevity. I hope I can post some pictures tomorrow. We set sail at 3:00 p.m.
