Cruise Description

6 Night Cruise sailing from Vienna to Nuremberg aboard Amadeus Queen.

At this most contemplative time of year, you can enter a real winter fairytale. Visit the best Christmas Markets along the Danube, explore some sleepy little towns and riverscapes, warm yourself with a delicious glass of mulled wine on board and immerse yourself in the wonderful traditions of the pre-Christmas period.

Highlights of this cruise:

Your wintery Advent cruise begins in Vienna, where, after embarking, you can explore your AMADEUS ship and join the cruise director for a Welcome Cocktail in the Panorama Bar. This is followed by a Welcome Dinner. Your ship remains in Vienna overnight.

Melk - Emmersdorf
In the morning, your floating premium hotel reaches the UNESCO World Natural Heritage region of the Wachau. Your ship docks in Melk/Emmersdorf, where you can join an excursion to Melk Abbey and Dürnstein. At the end of the excursion, defy the weather and join us for a mug of warming glühwein (mulled wine), after which you will return to your ship.

The rest of the day is spent on board, where you will have a wonderful view of the passing winter landscapes as your cruise ship travels towards Passau.
