We wanted to experience a river cruise. It was lovely and we enjoyed all ports we visited. The ship was very nice, the cabin satisfactory, dining excellent. However, the entertainment was very poor. Service was great. Ports were good choices and shore excursions good too. Excursion experiences should specify exactly how much physical activity is expected i.e, so many miles of walking etc. The Monograms experience in Nice was not good. The room at the hotel was not comfortable. In all our travels have never seen a shower like this one. The breakfast room, service and food were not up to par with the cruise. This hotel(can't remember name) was not a good choice. I know this does not pertain to the ship itself but needs to be addressed. Either Avalon or Monograms should have a section about off-shore experiences. I think this survey should be sent earlier since we forget some things that were important. Thank you.

The cruise in general was very good. The hotel in Nice was not satisfactory.
