  1. Avalon Waterways per their website (March12) states that they are temporarily suspending operations through April 30, 2020.
  2. Fog, WWII bomb remnants, thank goodness it’s not cruising season! Thinking of cruising and spring, many posts talk about Christmas markets, but I have to mention the not so publicized Easter Markets which I stumbled upon on our April 2019 cruise up the Rhine. Depending on your cruise company’s itinerary you might be able to experience one. On Avalon when the boat is docked in Breisach, Germany, you have the option of an all day excursion to the Black Forest or a half day to Colmar. My wife and I along with our friends chose the 1/2 day to Colmar instead of the long bus ride to the Black Forest. Colmar is gorgeous and the Easter market was really special with all the decorations. Would say Colmar was my favorite town on the trip. Easter falls on April 12 this year so if your cruise falls before that, consider that excursion if available. Also it left us the afternoon to explore the German countryside around Breisach via the bikes that are available onboard. Having the opportunity to get off the beaten path and explore is a great experience. Steerage Club
  3. First...thanks notamermaid for the informative information you provide! As a river cruise junkie it is great to get all your updates here. Now that 2020 is here, looking forward to another cruise in October, this time starting in Nuremberg and ending in Remich with Avalon. My wife and I have done a section of the Danube in 2017, and the Rhine from Amsterdam to Basil this past April. Love the service and accommodations on the boats while seeing so much beauty throughout Europe. We have met new friends along the way to the point we are all meeting up again for the October trip. I will be watching your posts throughout this year paying special attention to the levels at Kaub. Seems like that is the “pinch point” when levels are low. I hope if we can make that, then clear sailing to and on the Moselle. Prost! And to a good year ahead!
