River Cruise Itinerary

This cruise takes you to some of the most famous and delightful holiday markets in Central Europe. At each market, you’ll find wooden stalls displaying traditional crafts that range from quirky little characters made of fruit and dressed in Bavarian costume to beautifully carved and painted Nativity figures. You’ll also find exquisite ornaments and fine contemporary crafts, along with fairytale villages decked in holiday finery. Sparkling lights illuminate ancient cathedral squares and the sound of children’s laughter mingles with carols. Enjoy Uniworld’s exclusive “Taste of Christmas” program in Vienna, where you’ll see astonishing confectionary decorations in Café Demel’s windows. Celebrate the season in a new way as you meander through old lands, and remember, as the Christkind says, “While this market’s splendor is fleeting, the joy it brings is eternal.” Please note that most Christmas Markets in Europe end their season on the 23rd of December and will not be available after that date.

  1. Day 1
    Vienna (Embark)
    Sun, Dec 15, 2024
    Arrive at Vienna International Airport. If your cruise package includes a group arrival transfer, or if you have purchased a private arrival transfer, you will be greeted by a Uniworld representative and transferred to the ship.
    Meals: Dinner
  2. Day 2
    Vienna
    Mon, Dec 16, 2024
    Vienna is a city steeped in history, music and elegant architecture. Mozart, Austria’s most famous citizen, was at the height of his creative powers when he lived here, writing perhaps his best-known works, including The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, and Eine Kleine Nachtmusik. He found Vienna a very inspiring place, and so will you. You’ll have a full day to savor the Christmas spirit in Vienna with over 140 wooden stalls enticing you with every sort of delicacy. Be sure to try the rum balls and nutmeg-spiced macarons, which are local favorites, and amble through the adjacent park to admire the elaborately decorated trees.
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  3. Day 3
    Dürnstein, Cruising the Wachau Valley
    Tue, Dec 17, 2024
    After a scenic cruise through the beautiful Wachau Valley, we’ll reach the tiny village of Dürnstein. Walk along its cobbled streets, browse the shops selling apricot schnapps, and perhaps take a quick jaunt up to the ruins of a castle (with an intriguing tale all its own). Later, you can taste a local spin on mulled wine and attend an organ concert at an Augustine church.
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  4. Day 4
    Linz, Cruising the Danube River
    Wed, Dec 18, 2024
    There’s more to Linz than its famous Linzer torte, although that alone makes it well worth a visit. The city has a thriving contemporary art scene, and its two Christmas Markets are over-the-top enchanting. In keeping with the Austrian traditions of good food and good music, Linz gave rise to both the Linzer torte and the Linz Symphony. The symphony is one of Mozart’s most celebrated works. The story goes that the composer was so inspired by the beauty of the city that he finished his Symphony No. 36 in less than a week here in 1783.
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  5. Day 5
    Passau (Theresienthal)
    Thu, Dec 19, 2024
    Take some time today to explore the beautifully expansive and heavily wooded Bavarian Forest. As the largest continuous forested region in Europe, there’s plenty to uncover—like unspoiled landscapes, abundant wildlife, and idyllic atmosphere.
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  6. Day 6
    Regensburg
    Fri, Dec 20, 2024
    The Old Town of Regensburg sparkles with holiday lights and decorations this time of year, adding to its already considerable charms. Check out the brightest cultural sights, then head to what may very well be the most romantic Christmas Market in all of Germany, nestled within the courtyard of a beautiful baroque castle—as you take in the delights of the markets.
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  7. Day 7
    Roth, Nuremberg
    Sat, Dec 21, 2024
    For a truly over-the-top holiday extravaganza, look no further than Nuremberg, which boasts the largest and grandest Christmas Market in all of Germany—and that’s really saying something. The “Gingerbread Capital of the World” pulls out all the stops during the holidays, as you’ll see for yourself on a panoramic tour guaranteed to put you in a festive mood. Two hundred stalls filled with holiday wares—ornaments, nutcrackers, seasonal treats, and hand-carved toys—await you, and the irresistible aromas of roasting nuts, cinnamon, and grilled sausages waft through the air.
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  8. Day 8
    Nuremberg (Disembark)
    Sun, Dec 22, 2024
    Disembark the ship. If your cruise package includes a group departure transfer, or if you have purchased a private departure transfer, you will be transferred to Nuremberg Airport for your flight home.
    Meals: Breakfast

Steven was available to us for over a year to answer, discuss, and revisit all concerns or questions. There wasn't a moment when we felt our concerns were met with nothing other than 100% attentiveness.

Great service on board this river cruise. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The food and drinks were as advertised top shelf, and everything was truly all inclusive. The scenery while cruising was fantastic, and the cities and villages we visited were more than I expected.

We are Uniworld enthusiasts and expect a consistent level of comfort & service, which was no exception on this trip. We do have two issues that may or may not be in Uniworld's power to correct: 1) air temperature control was extremely poor on this trip in cabin & public areas alike; 2) Internet service was so bad we might as well not have had it at all. I don't expect any internet while cruising, of course; however, upon reaching all ports, I expect to have strong internet connections. In this day & age anything less is unacceptable. We were very disappointed on this trip & expect better of Uniworld in this regard.

The Uniworld river cruise exceeded my expectations.

In our opinion Uniworld is by far the best river cruise company in the industry! The all inclusive packages are wonderful. The staff on all of the ships go out of their way to do whatever is necessary to insure that you are comfortable and content.

Uniword delivered on its promise for a luxury cruise on the Danube from Passau to Budapest. The entire crew was very well-trained and provided outstanding service. The River Beatrice is an excellent ship. Food was delicuous and varied. The land tours were delivered by professional tour guides. The cities we visited were fascinating and it is likely we'll go back to visit several, especially Vienna and Budapest.

Our agent was able to secure a stateroom for our river cruise. This was the trip of our dreams on Uni-World! Would definitely use Uni-World and Affordabletours again!
