Ship Spotlight — New Ships In 2017
New 2017 shipsWe've got that "new car" feeling. Have you ever experienced the feeling you get when you first slide behind the wheel of a sleek, new fully-equipped car? While it’s hard to put into words, you probably know exactly what I'm talking about. At the minimum, it’s really, really cool; at the max, it's like paradise. While sailing on a brand-spanking new river ship may not give you the same personal high it, too, is still a really cool, very memorable experience — one you should absolutely try sooner rather than later.

The explosive expansion and popularity of river cruising is one of the most remarkable travel industry growth stories of the last 7+ years. In recent years we have seen as many as 20 new ships entering service each year. Now, for the first time in about five years, there is a brief pause in construction with only about ten new — or completely rebuilt — ships entering service. But, these 10+ ships are exceptional to say the least! Please take a few minutes to read about the new ships being launched by Crystal, American Cruise Line, Emerald Waterways, Uniworld, AmaWaterways, and more.
Ship Spotlight — New Ships for 2017

Port Spotlight — Amsterdam!
Amsterdam CanalAmsterdam is one of the most funnest, tourist-friendly cities in all of Europe. You can call their country the Netherlands. You can call it Holland. Or, just as my wife and I do, you can call it the most fun-seeking, open-minded and safe city in the world. Amsterdam combines the best of the New York and Paris food scenes, has more colorful canals than Venice, offers locals and tourists the best collection of museums anywhere (And that includes the Louvre!), and it is the perfect gateway from which to begin your Rhine or Danube river cruise voyage.

But, no matter what you call the country, the exciting and eclectic pulse of this fascinating city really seems to blossom beginning in late April (no pun intended) and resonates all year, culminating with gala New Year’s parties strewn along the banks of its hundreds of majestic, criss-crossing canals. But, Amsterdammers don't wait for New Year to celebrate the year. Midway through the season they stop everything and throw a giant early summer party known as "King’s Day," which can only be described as pandemonium in the best of ways. But, that's only the beginning of all the fun and sights you will experience in and around Amsterdam... please read this exciting new Port Spotlight!

IN JANUARY'S THE INSIDE SCOOP
Fine Dining Experiences On Today's River Ships
The fine dining experience on river cruise ships.In our December-release Spotlight on Ships, you get a sneak peek into the next wave of incredible 2017 river ships, but we'd be remiss if we didn't also mention how dining aboard a river ship has evolved as well over the last few years. River cruise lines such as Crystal, Scenic, AmaWaterways, and Uniworld have re-focused their efforts on moving from just "eating" aboard ship, to "fine dining" aboard ship. As passenger count on new ships is reduced, thus creating more space for each guest, many lines are now also able to offer multiple dining venues. The multiple dining venues also mean more unique cuisines to sample and savor, all truly enhancing your vacation cruise. We’ll tell you all about these new trends in shipboard cuisine in our next Inside Scoop issue coming out in January, so keep an eye on your inbox... we'll let you know all the delicious details!
