Any commets on river cruises? Are they worth the expense?
US River Cruises
I was just watching a show that highlighted a river cruise boat. Not sure if my BF would go for it because he has this notion he will get sick on a small boat (anything less than 3K passengers)...
I have not been on a river cruise yet. I am looking into them. I look forward to some opinions.
I like the idea of a river cruise, but the prices (especially for the Mississippi cruises) are way out of my league.
It appears to me that the cost of river cruising anywhere is quite high, although I would like to do a Mississippi River cruise one day. I have brochures at home. It could be fun.
I know quite a few folks from here in Edmonton that have done the Viking Cruise in Europe and they say its worth every penny. It must be hard for them to compete against a $500.00 dollar cruise getaway from Florida.
One woman at my gym said she just got back from a Viking River Cruise and was raving about it! Said she loved stopping at all the itis, and PHD students were leading historical tours and such.
American Cruise Line (?) has a couple. They are out of Connecticut. Very expensive. Not your typical cruise. They also specialize in a small ( 100 +/- passengers ) ships that travel in and around places like Maine and Florida.
