European river cruise advice on land, logistics and lines

Jump to last reply

I'm taking my 80 year old father on a Danube river cruise this fall. I had a few questions I'm hoping others can help with:

1) we're going to start in Prague on our own and then make our way to meet the ship and embark in nuremberg. Is there really only one train per day and is that the best way to get between the two cities?

2) it seems as if uniworld and AMA are somewhat interchangeable. I like the idea that AMA starts in Nuremberg and you go over the continental divide and through the locks. Is this worth (seems as if uniworld starts further downstream).

3) AMA seems to split shore excursions for active and less active people. Does uniworld do this as my father isn't a great walker.

Appreciate any other thoughts on the lines and itinerary (Nuremberg to Budapest) as food/service as well as ship comfort matters to me. I was also looking at the castles on the Rhine cruise from Basel to Amsterdam but the itinerary seemed a little boring. This will be our first river cruise so appreciate any thoughts.
