Cruise vacations have never lost popularity, however what seems to be gaining in 2011, is the requests for a river cruise. Most clients who request a river cruise start to plan at-least a year in advance. Unlike the large ships that can accommodate thousands, river vessels carry 150 to 300 people. You are bound to meet interesting people and make new friends.
China seems to be the most popular destination. Viking River Cruises has an itinerary where you can visit China’s key highlights in just 12 days. I think that the learning experience you receive, time you spend in each destination including your tours in the cities and the fact that there is no need to pack and unpack makes this a stress-free cruise vacation.
Both experienced and first-time travelers have discovered the joys of river cruising, making it the fastest-growing segment of the cruise/travel industry. The price you pay and what you receive on a river cruise is unbelievable.
