Featured cruiseline: Viking River Cruises

Viking longships were designed by the same team responsible for the yachts of Seabourn; they have a variety of stateroom classes (all with outside views), from the standard (which are thoughtfully laid out and, at 150 square feet, are bigger than those on other Viking boats) to the 445-square-foot Explorer Suites, which have private wraparound verandas and offer spectacular 270 degree views.

These ships are "green" and feature energy-efficient hybrid engines (quieter and less vibration), solar panels and organic herb gardens.

A signature feature is the indoor/outdoor Aquavit Terrace, a combination casual dining venue and lounge. Retractable floor-to-ceiling glass doors make it possible to admire the passing scenery regardless of weather conditions.

Thanks to a product that represents solid value, Viking has a high rate of customer loyalty and has been commended by Travel + Leisure , Conde Nast Traveler's Gold List, and National Geographic's The 10 Best of Everything, among others.

About River Cruises

River cruises top the list of many vacationerís to-do lists and rightfully so. The charm of a river cruise cannot be denied. The pace is slower, so the experiences are richer.

Unlike ocean cruises, rivers provide easy access to city centers. Passengers sail directly into the heart of every destination and dock in the middle of town, then walk right off the ship and move easily into whatever city or town you are visiting. You spend less time getting there and more time being there.

A river cruise allows for a more intimate experience, as well. Because most of these ships accommodate only 30 to 200 guests, it is easier to meet your traveling companions. You can share a drink with the couple you met on the day's tour, or dine with interesting passengers in an open-seating restaurant. Another benefit: you can also forget about waiting in long lines to embark, debark, or have a meal.

History and culture buffs will thrill to the experience of Paris via the Seine, Budapest via the Danube or London via the Thames. Experience cruising down a meandering river in a venue even more laid-back than traditional ocean cruises. Drifting through beautiful landscapes, enjoying all the creature comforts of regional food and wine, experiencing chateaus, castles & cathedrals, touring vineyards and sleepy villages left behind by time... this is a European River Cruise.

River Cruise enthusiasts looking for unusual, warm and exotic destinations will also enjoy a voyage along the Yangtze River in China or the Mekong in Vietnam. And all those with the hearts of wanderers will appreciate the ability to disembark and re-embark at leisure, an option not available on sea-faring cruises.
