I would Geoff, but my extolling of the wonders of river cruising usually go down like a lead balloon! :cry:

Your photos and blog from your Vietnam visit made excellent reading and viewing! If I was younger I would give it a go :) the Far East that is :) Have to admit European river cruising does not excite me, but each to his own.

Tried 19 different Ships and many many cruises, and hopefully more to come!

Thanks Wen. :D Having done two European river cruises I must admit that they weren't in the same league as the Mekong one. At the moment, the river cruises on our to-do list are Viking's China's Cultural Delights, Memories of Mandalay, and Waterways of the Tsars.

(I think it would be great if someone would start a topic entitled: 'Why I think river cruising isn't for me!' ;) )

I would love to do a river cruise but they do not take kids - that said I and no offence to the published work - I am least attracted by one on the Elbe! Love to do the Danube from Passau to the black sea

I can't find anything on Viking's website about them not accepting children, but I'd appreciate a link if you know differently. All I can say is that we've not come across any young children but there have been a few (very well-behaved!) teenagers on a couple of our cruises.

Sorry Dave I have not explained myself clearly - I have not looked at Viking as they are out of my budget but I have looked at other companies like NickoTours, Arosa and they do not take kids - mind you does not say it anywhere that they don't but when I tried to book the agent riverscanner.com gave us the knock back on that basis. That said, CMV do and I have not checked out Shearings or Newmarket Holidays!

There goes my morning! ;)
