Your first river cruise

River Cruising - boards.cruisecritic.com
What was your first river cruise? Ship, date, itinerary? Was it what you expected?

My first river cruise was on the Uniworld River Queen in December 2005 on the Rhine, Basel to Cologne, doing a Christmas markets cruise.

That year there was low water on the Rhine around Basel, so Uniworld at the last minute changed the itinerary to Wurzburg to Cologne, making it a Main and Rhine cruise.

I was hooked right from the start. For me, I was surprised to find very active 55+ passengers onboard, most of them well traveled. I also found the Christmas markets to be addictive (been on three December cruises so far).

I loved all what was included in the fare and was quite pleased that there was no nickel-and-diming. Also was amazed at the attention to detail - wasn't expecting that.

How about you?
