Welcome to Cruise Critic Live! Each Thursday at 3 p.m. (Eastern), we'll take a look at all the things to love about cruising, from favorite destinations to amazing dining experiences, and we'll give you the inside scoop on the newest ships at sea and on the rivers. We'll also welcome outside experts to this space, including cruise line CEOs and newsmakers. And of course, we want to hear from you: What would you like to discuss?
This week, we'll talk rivers with special guest Patrick Clark, Managing Director of Avalon Waterways, a company that will have three new ships -- Impression, Illumination and Poetry II -- among the 34 that will take to the rivers in 2014. We'll take your questions about Avalon as well as river trends. Join us to find out what's on tap for rivers this year.
