'Tis the season to set sail on these ho-ho-holiday cruises

Vantage Travel Team November 21, 2017

This year, add a little extra magic to you holidays and start a new tradition: holiday cruising. After all, whether you're planning on a solo trip, cruising in a couple, or traveling in a group, a seasonal voyage is always in style! We’ve got two holiday gala cruises filled with illuminating tours perfect for celebrating the season. 

Danube Waltz

Follow the glittering Danube River as you experience the holiday spirit of four unique countries — Hungary, Austria, Slovakia, and Germany — while enjoying some of the continent's best Christmas markets on our Danube Waltz cruise. You’ll find a number of musical features on this unique trip, from an exclusive private classical music concert at the Kursalon music hall to exploring Salzburg, a baroque jewel in the Austrian Alps, where you’ll see some of the locales featured in The Sound of Music. Of course, what would a holiday be without a spread of mouthwatering treats? In addition to experiencing the culinary specialties of several enchanting cities, you’ll watch an authentic apple strudel demonstration, learn the trade secrets of gingerbread during a trip to a local bakery, and more!

Heart of Germany

Delve into the charm and history of several German cities where many of our own winter holiday traditions originated. On Heart of Germany, you’ll cruise peacefully along the Upper Middle Rhine Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site peppered with dramatic castles, historic towns, and gorgeous vineyards. Not only will you explore a number of cities and towns at one of the most festive times of the year, you’ll also get to shop your way through several local Christmas markets for gifts, souvenirs, and more! Feeling nervous to leave your holiday traditions behind? We’ve balanced your sightseeing with events like a Christmas tree decorating celebration and a special Christmas-inspired dinner, so you’ll feel right at home.

Planning a solo voyage? Vantage is the only company in the travel industry whose river ships include cabins built specifically for solo travelers, so you can experience these treasured destinations without paying a Single Supplement.
