Update on River Cruises in Europe

Deutsch: Ein Binnen-Kreuzfahrtschiff auf der D...

I wrote last year about a great idea for a river cruise in Europe this year. http://www.regnordman.com/2011/05/20/very-good-value-for-a-fall-european-river-cruise-package-for-two-is-going-going/

Here is a comment from a friend who took this cruise

  • The trip was great.
  • We were impressed with the boat, the crew & staff, the tours and the tour guides.
  • Rating  4 out of 5.

Europe is getting lots of attention  these days for travel , ( Strong loonie, Mexico uggh, growing desires for a bit more luxury in a trip – our backpacking days seem behind us) .    These trips are full usually 12 months in advance.   As  a result river cruise firms  do not often offer incentives.  One came by today to my wife (anordman@cruiseshipcenters.com) for next year  where Viking are offering some  shipboard credits  on a new boats cruise bookings to Russia, Ukraine and China Itineraries.( If you book by June 30, 2012.)

Here are the Russian itinerary:

The Russian boats sound quite intriguing

The new ship for the Yangtze tour is pretty spiffy
