There are currently 3 forums in this area: *River Cruising, River Cruise Ports, and River Cruising Roll Calls.
When I asked for ideas on how to refine the categories there were conflicting suggestions – but things seemed to be coalescing around two basic ideas: either split things up by cruise line, or by river. A late idea that gained a lot of traction was to divide the cruise lines into Viking and All Other. But it wasn’t clear to me which of the 3 forums people wanted to divide (I think the focus was on Roll Calls).
After giving it more thought, I have come up with this idea:
• River Cruising [unchanged]
• • River Cruise Itineraries [replaces River Cruise Ports — for questions and discussions about specific rivers (and their ports) and theme cruises — see list below]
• River Cruise Roll Calls [category only, no forums or threads]
• • All Viking Rivers Roll Calls [by itinerary and year only, not individual dates]
• • All Other Roll Calls [by line, itinerary and year only, not individual dates]
Here are the categories for the River Cruise Itineraries subforum:
Danube East (Budapest – Bucharest)
Danube West (Amsterdam – Budapest
Mosel (Amsterdam – Luxembourg)
Rhine (Amsterdam – Basel)
Rhone & Saone (Chalon – Arles)
Seine (Paris – Normandy)
Spain & Portugal
Vietnam & Cambodia
How does this strike you?
