Thank you so much, I have no doubt that I would miss big busy ships. I may end up wanting to do a lot more River Cruising. I do love it all! I was not sure about AmaWaterways, it seems Uniworld and Viking you read about all the time, they are out there but I know little of AMA. Uniworld seems to have the most beautifully decorated cabins! It will be fun to try them all :OD. Have you been on all of them? I forgot I did see Avalon too. I am not sure how they fall in line of ratings. You have me even more excited !
