Have yourself a merry little Christmas as you cruise down the Danube during this festive time of year and explore the best and brightest Christmas Markets in Europe. You'll be jollier than Ol' Saint Nick when you see all the light displays.
What's up, river cruising peeps? Let's do this! 5 days, 3 countries, the best and brightest Christmas markets, tons of like-minded travelers and jolly good times. We'll meet aboard The A to kick things off with a Welcome party complete with some delish Hungarian street food. Then, who's up for a night out on the town at Budapest's famous ruin pubs and bars?
Majestic, bohemian, post-modern Budapest is waiting. Today, you'll visit a Christmas market in Vörosmarty Square (yummy tastings included) and then you have the afternoon to do your thing or let us show you around with one of our U Time optionals like, visiting a Jewish Synagogue, seeing some seriously gorgeous libraries or braving the aptly named House of Terror museum. Tonight, join us for an included castle Ice-skating session and then opt to top it all off with a winter time magic bath party at famous Lukacs Bath, complete with laser show, DJ, cocktails and beer.
Then, watch the lights of Budapest fade away as we party the night away with an onboard DJ appearance and make our way to Bratislava overnight.
Slovakia's capital city doesn't disappoint - This small town is known for its charm, Czech beer, bohemian cuisine and art deco cafes. Start the day with a walking tour of old town where you'll explore the toys, decorations and delicacies of the Christmas Markets. Then, onboard our chef will teach us all a thing or two about making famous Austrian desserts (Topfenstrudel anyone?) as well as an initiation to the art of drinking Viennese coffee.
Docking early evening, we’ll get our first glimpses of spellbinding Vienna, getting excited for what tomorrow will bring.
After a leisurely breakfast, get oriented with Austria's elegant and artistic capital city as you explore the Christmas Markets of Feyung , the illuminated neo-gothic City Hall, and the artisan markets and festivities of Karlsplatz (x-mas delights tasting included). Then, the choice is yours with a free afternoon in Vienna. You could explore the world-class museums, famous coffeehouses, pastry stores, ice rink at Konzert House, vintage shops or all of the above. Or, let us tempt you with an opera music/Viennese cooking class (at the same time, incredibly), a unique Neni cooking class and dining experience at Naschmarkt, and even an after-hours (read - no tourists) tour of the Schoenbrunn Palace, the former residence of the imperial family. And if all THAT wasn't enough, join us tonight for an included onboard late night Spirit of Christmas Mixology Class and a Waltz & DJ party.
After one more blissful sleep, we're sad to say it's all over. River cruising, you're our new favourite way of travelling…
