Hi Don,
Yes the 18-200 lens is a do-all travel lens, but if you like to make salon prints larger than 8x10, say 12x18, like myself, you might find your prints a bit too soft. At least I did.
Nikon made an inexpensive kit lens - 18-135mm f3.5. The focal range is fine for the most part. It is a non VR lens and worse than that, it is no longer listed in Nikon's lens lineup, but I'm sure you can find plenty of used ones out there. Though it was an under appreciated lens (read: cheap, with plastic mount, no VR), it was one of Nikons greatest bargain DX zoom lenses. My copy is tack, tack sharp with beautiful resolution. It came as a kit lens with one of the Nikons I bought in the past. I guess I sold that body but kept this excellent lens. I'm sure you could find plenty of these around at bargain prices. Would also agree with other posters, that your 18-105mm lens is also pretty good with very usable focal lengths,and it has VR.
Have taken this trip myself at various times.
Keep your ISOs between 400 - 800. Shoot at higher shutter speeds when on any kind of slow moving boat like those long river cruise boats. Good luck on your trip.
