  3. Avalon Tranquility II
First river cruise -- wanted to see Rhine. Was extremely pleased with attentive and pleasant staff, the calm and leisurely schedule and the absence of rushing crowds. We have done 14 ocean cruises and plan to do more on the rivers. It came down to a choice between Viking and Avalon and we are very happy with our final selection and will try Avalon again.This was a surprise 48th wedding anniversary present to wife.We truly enjoyed the shore excursions -- particularly in Strasbourg and Cologne at the cathedrals. Was also pleased with Cruise Director's daily briefing and great information. The ship was very nice and atmosphere was comfortable and casual. The dining experience was excellent at every meal. The complimentary selections of regional wines were also a very nice addition to cruise. We did come home to Colorado with many wonderful memories, lots of pictures and a terrific cuckoo clock from the Black Forest. Thanks..

Cabin
We booked late and upgrades were not available on desired date. Cabin was small, but comfortable.
