Enchanting Christmas & New Year's Cruise (2017) : S.S. Maria Theresa

11 Days From Passau To Budapest


Celebrate two holidays in grand style on this utterly delightful wintertime cruise.

Experience the best of four countries during the most magical time of year as you make your way along the mighty Danube. Music abounds on this festive journey; you'll sing "Silent Night" in the town where the beloved carol was composed, delight in the music of Strauss and Mozart at a private concert in Vienna, and savor the soul-stirring sounds of Europe's largest pipe organ on Christmas Eve. Other highlights include sipping cocktails with an Austrian princess inside her 13th-century castle home, visiting Prince Eugene's Winter Palace in Vienna, sampling seasonal delicacies in Slovakia, and enjoying old-world hospitality in an Austrian wine village. Spend Christmas Day in Salzburg, celebrating with a special holiday lunch inside the walls of St. Peter's Abbey, then ring in the New Year with a gala dinner and dancing in a sumptuous Budapest ballroom. An ideal journey for creating unforgettable holiday memories!
