Re: River Cruises - Love Them.
Ahhhhh....cruising! My wife and I haven't done a River Cruise as yet but we are still looking into them as the way they are set up is so much better than regular cruising. We've probably done 25 cruises with different Cruise Lines and our favorites are the TransAtlantic ones because we hit the high spots at ports we want to see and if we really like them we go back and spend a week or two. We are going to the South of France for a week and then spend another week in Italy...Florence and Pisa and Tuscany then cruise back to the US. We find this to be a great value as the A/F is only about $500 p/p and a lot of times we fly free because of our travel points so we're only out the cost of the cruise ( $2500 for a balcony---total for up to 17 nights ) and the cost of hotels which we get for free with points.
I wish the River Cruises were a bit cheaper as they tend to run over $5,000 total for 7-10 nights but depending on the itinerary I guess it might be worth it.
