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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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:
Here are the Asian itinerary:
The Russian boats sound quite intriguing
The new ship for the Yangtze tour is pretty spiffy
