Dreaming of a White Christmas

Imagine swapping your next Kiwi ‘silly season’ for a luxurious river-cruise … being utterly spoiled as you sail through some of Europe’s loveliest regions … with Christmas lights, markets and festivities happening everywhere you stop!

We can’t guarantee snow (that’s up to the weather-gods). But, in this part of the world, people know how to ‘do Christmas’. And when yuletide arrives, towns along the lovely Blue Danube are transformed into...




Our first stop is Prague, gorgeous capital of the Czech Republic. Then, warmed with a cup of svařené (mulled wine), we head to Nuremberg (think ramparts, watchtowers  and gates) … romantic medieval Regensburg … charming Passau (everybody’s darling) … Salzburg and ‘The Sound of Music’ … Linz (founded by the Romans) … Melk (with its magnificent Abbey) … and stunning Vienna (with its iconic Opera House, Schönbrunn Castle, and yummy pastries).

If you’ve never done a luxury river-cruise before, prepare to be pampered: unpacking in your spacious cabin … oohing & aahing at views out your balcony window ... relaxing at the bar, in the restaurant, or up on the Sky Deck. Our promise: hassle-free travel … great company … and loads of fun!
