Grand Christmas & New Year's Cruise (2017) : River Beatrice

13 Days From Nuremberg To Budapest


Celebrate two holidays on a truly grand voyage along the resplendent Danube River.

Cruise through Germany, Austria and Hungary, stopping to explore charming locales and enjoy authentic cultural experiences. This unique itinerary features old-world towns and villages, grand capital cities, soaring cathedrals, and all the traditional trappings of the holiday season-twinkling lights, festive music, incredible wintertime landscapes, gourmet food and wine and decadent once-a-year treats. On Christmas Eve, walk through hushed medieval streets to a Gothic cathedral for Midnight Mass. Listen to harness bells jingle as you ride through the Bavarian Forest in a horse-drawn wagon. Wander through locations from The Sound of Music in Salzburg, with rum-laced coffee to warm you from head to toes. Meet a bona fide princess at a private reception in her castle overlooking Austria's spectacular Wachau Valley, and ring in the New Year dancing in a Viennese palace.
