We're seeing a trend here -- another year, another explosion of river ship builds. While new ocean vessels are being built at what we'd call a modest pace, river building shows no sign of slowing down. With 34 new riverboats on the way, including 16 new ships from Viking River Cruises, cruisers looking to try out a new vessel have plenty of options. It's clear river lines are convinced ocean cruisers are ready for something new and different.

When it comes to the ocean-going vessels, Norwegian and Princess both are revealing fleetmates to their splashy 2013 first-in-class ships. Royal Caribbean is joining the fray with a brand-new class of ship debuting in November, with all sorts of bells and whistles and bumper cars. Costa and Tui will launch ships in Europe, while Pearl Mist, a much-anticipated small ship, is hitting the waters this summer.
