I loved this trip! It was clearly NOT as beautiful of a river as the Danube but we visited so many beautiful little towns. There was only the small portion of the Rhine that was beautiful and the remainder was industrial--which was a disappointment after being able to hang out on top during the sailing days to enjoy the scenery. The tours were great and very informative with excellent guides. Guides were knowledgeable (sometimes maybe a little too much) and enthusiastic about their town and spoke English proficiently. Isaella was superb and on top of everything. The reception staff was very helpful (Dia) and friendly as was the food service personnel (Gary).
the stateroom was smaller than our previous Avalon room but was satisfactory. the bed was comfortable and I love the amenities. The food was okay--sometimes great and sometimes not so great.
