Experience the enchantment of the holidays on the Danube and ring in the New Year in grand style.

Celebrate the holiday season in truly extraordinary fashion with a special Uniworld itinerary that gives you the best of four different countries at their most magical time of year. Cruise the mighty Danube, visiting classical capitals like Budapest and Vienna. Hear the largest organ in Europe on Christmas Eve in Passau, and then ring in the New Year in elegant style with a gala dinner and ballroom dance in Budapest. Festive celebrations are plentiful during this cruise—what better way to create perfect holiday memories?

Commemorate a splendid musical heritage as you lift your voice and sing “Silent Night” in Oberndorf, where the beloved Christmas carol was composed, and delight in the music of Strauss and Mozart in Vienna, where the composers lived. Sip a cocktail with a princess in the seven-towered Artstetten Castle, and waltz in a Viennese palace. Spend Christmas Day in Salzburg and enjoy a holiday lunch within the walls of St. Peter’s Abbey. Discover the seasonal delicacies of Slovakia in Bratislava’s picturesque downtown, and enjoy the merriment of traditional hospitality in an Austrian wine village. Sample the finest of the Wachau Valley’s famous white wines in an exquisite baroque village. Ring out the old year and ring in the new with art, wine, and song, as you cruise through four nations during this most magical season.
