We are sailing with Road Scholar on the Gironde in France in June of 2013. Vantage offered a similar trip last year but not again. Viking will offer it in 2014. Our trip has time in the Dordonge area also. This is river cruise number 16. Pat

We are doing the Danube - twice - next year.

We travel with Viking in April. We start in Bucharest then board the boat for a 7 night cruise up to Budapest. The package includes 2 nights in Budapest, but we are adding an extra day on our own. This will be our 1st cruise with Viking, but our 6th river cruise overall.

Then in September, we go back to Budapest, and cruise up to Nuremberg with Scenic. River cruise #7 - 2nd time with Scenic. We are not continuing on to Prague with the tour, as we wish to spend a couple of extra days in Nuremberg before flying home via London (to visit our daughter....) We have sailed Budapest to Nuremberg before with AMA, and didn't think we would be repeating rivers so soon - but life happened, and this was a good choice for us.

I second Carolyn's request for a review... was looking at the new Viking itinerary. Although it may have to wait a bit of time... already have a deposit on the Rhone for 2014!!

No cruise for us in 2013 but we are planning a cruise on the Rhone for our 40th Anniversay in 2014. No cruise company selected as yet.

Smile American Queen

Loved our American Queen cruise this year and looking forward to planning another. A friendly option for those who need to use mobility devices.

I chose "other" because we're sailing an American river next year, just not the Mississippi.

Sailed on a back to back voyage on American Queen this past August; enjoyed it so much we signed up for another in 2013. We sailed on the Tennessee, Cumberland, Ohio and Mississippi rivers from Chattanooga to Memphis, then from Memphis to Louisville. Fabulous.

We're going to be doing a portion of the Ohio River, Cincinnati to Pittsburgh, in early August. I was raised in a town on the Ohio just outside Pittsburgh and used to watch the steamboats go by. I vowed to sail on one someday, and this will be my third voyage! Imagine, all the romance and scenery of a European river cruise without leaving the USA, and on a true steam powered paddle wheeler!

We also want to do St. Paul to St. Louis in 2014, and the southern Mississippi out of New Orleans around the holidays the next year, seeing the antebellum mansions decorated for Christmas and the holiday bonfires along the levees.

Curious, Rogerdawhip, with almost 10 GCT river cruises yet, what's still on your bucket list for the future?

Please, please post a review. Hubby turned up his nose at the idea, but maybe we can convince him.
