  3. Pearl Mist
Overall, this Pearl Seas cruise compared well with AMA Waterways' European river cruises, but on a more informal and less elegant basis. The food and table service were excellent, though they did an unsatisfactory job of accommodating a vegan diet. The free nightly full open bar in the lounges an hour before dinner and during entertainment was a decided plus and much appreciated. Rooms were spacious and comfortable, and the steward servicing our room was outstanding. Lounges were comfortable, though some furnishings were worn and tired, with stained and ripped upholstery Excursions, for the most part, were plentiful and entertaining, though using school buses for long rides by older adults is uncomfortable at best. Our itinerary had to be modified because of bad weather and Pearl Seas did an excellent job of rearranging port calls and making sure we saw everything "as advertised." As a concession, we were not charged for any shore excursions. Some otherwise would have cost $40-$75 per person.

Nice Change from European River Cruising
