River boat cruising

Jump to last reply

We are looking at a river boat cruise on mid sept pn the Danube from budapest to nuremberg with a stay in Prague at the end. The cruise line is Avalon waterways. The ship we would be traveling on was built on 2006. I have many reservations about this mode of traveling. I'm concerned I will find it boring eating at the same dining room every night
and having the routine of the ship. I like the idea of having river views of towns but there must be long stetches of just land. Can anyone offer advice...I have done a European small ship cruise on the wind star, an upscale cruise line. I didn't love being on the ship every night. The ports were Interesting. Is river cruising that different? What does anyone know about Avalon?
I've also never been to Provence, fr or the Amalfi coast and Sicily. These are the other trips we are considering....by bus tour. Not sure we are comfortable driving on narrow windy roads. Any thoughts on which of these destinations might be the most enjoyable, including eastern europe? Thanks
