Some good news, at last: Peter Deilmann Cruises is on schedule with plans to
expand its European itineraries to ten ships next year. The company, which
operates river boats that ply waterways including the Danube, Rhine, Rhone,
Saone, Po, and Elbe, among others, will launch the Frederic Chopin on March
23. The 79-passenger ship will offer a series of itineraries that call at
Amsterdam and Prague as well as more unusual places (for cruisers, anyway)
like eastern Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.
