Can anyone give their experience with getting kosher food on an Avalon river cruise in Europe. We are having some trouble with them.

Credit Cards / Re: Starwood AMEX Master Thread

I hope this is the forum for this question as it pertains to the amex starwood card. Is it true you get 2 to 1 when exchanging from spg points into united miles points? The other airlines usually give 1 to 1, i think and sometimes you can get a 25% bonus? I am trying like everyone else to maximize my remaining spg points before august.
Also, Dan has recommended transferring into United points when using Marriott flights and nights program. Anyone know why this airline program is best ?

This is my first time putting a question in. I did it on the Marriott nights and flights thread.
I used this method over a year ago to get Southwest status and got a week in Rome at an amazing Marriott associated hotel. We want to do this again and I understand transferring thru to United is considered the best option and best to pick a higher hotel for nights.Therefore we are interested in the Ritz in Manhattan for a week which requires over 500,000 Marriott points ( and 1/3rd of that in SPG points) which would then transfer into a certain number of United points(132K). Before I do that I checked transfers of SPG points directly into United points and it looks like you would get 2 for one that way. It then seems that we wold lose a lot of potential united points doing this. Am I missing something?
