Witness the latest offer from Viking River Cruises. For Danube and Rhine sailings in late October and November, its currently offering a two-for-the-price of one deal, and throwing in free airfare to boot. That brings the cost down to just $2456 per person, including air, for an eight day cruise, which ain't at all bad for this pricey activity. Its discounts must be booked by September 30.
Gate 1 Travel is trying to entice singles to hit the waters by waiving the dreaded singles supplement for November Danube sailings (between Nuremberg and Budapest). The cost of the weeklong jaunt is $999.
I found several other enticing fall deals at the consolidator site RiverCruises.com, an off-shoot of VacationsToGo.com.
As for Mom, she'll be returning on Saturday from Russia. As the person who booked it for her, I'm hoping she had the time of her life. Because if she didn't, I'll probably never hear the end of it!
