Europe's River Cruise Revolution On my three cruises, the only person I could find who wasn’t an instant river-cruising convert was . . . me. I love seeing Europe from the perspective of its waterways—it was hard to pry myself away from the top deck, where I could watch history unfold as we breezed along—but otherwise I felt trapped in a group-tour bubble. When I’m abroad, I want to eat where the locals eat and socialize with them, not with my fellow Americans.

Dream Cruise Itineraries for 2013 : Cruises 12. Australia and the Far East on the Crystal Symphony The Draw: A blockbuster 98-day itinerary that Magellan himself would envy, the cruise begins in Auckland, and although the ship spends most weeks navigating Southeast Asia and the Far East, it also makes its way around Russia’s Kamchatsky Peninsula and Kobe, Japan, before winding down via a swing through Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, finally docking in Los Angeles. The ship: The Crystal Symphony, which carries 950 passengers, has enough onboard diversions—a great casino, a luxury spa, a variety of restaurant and bar choices, foreign language lessons, and watercolor classes—to alleviate monotony. There’s also an outstanding speakers program with experts from politics, business, and the arts. Prime ports: Bali, Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Nagasaki, Kobe, Petropavlovsk, Ketchikan, Vancouver, Seattle, San Francisco, and Santa Barbara.

Chocolatier takes a radical approach to sourcing In search of a sweeter solution for your Valentine's Day chocolate? 18-year-old Zoë S.

River Cruising vs. Ocean Cruising River cruises and ocean cruises differ more than you might think. Many of the people I’ve met on the former are refugees from the latter: They chose a river cruise to avoid the crowds, lines, and hassles they’ve encountered on giant ships at sea. But they compare 120- to 160-passenger river boats with mammoth 2,500- to 3,000-passenger megaships, whereas it would be more apt to compare river ships with similarly small seagoing vessels where such crowds, lines, and hassles don’t exist. Personally, when I’m on a river ship, I miss aspects of the ocean experience—from the vast, uninterrupted sea views to the romantic dinners alone with my husband on our balcony. For all you ocean cruisers who may be thinking of branching out and trying a river trip, I thought it might be helpful to lay out the biggest differences as I see them, based on the four river cruises and 20 ocean cruises I’ve taken.
