Immerse yourself in a European winter wonderland on this all-inclusive, six-night cruise along the Danube River with Inspirato. Visit some of the most magical Christmas markets in all of Europe as you discover sleepy riverside hamlets from Vienna, Austria, to Nuremberg, Germany; shop for authentic and festive souvenirs; and sip mulled wine. Sample shore excursions run the gamut, from a walking tour that visits medieval squares and historic cathedrals in the quaint town of Passau, to a visit to the traditional Christmas market in Regensburg, Germany, filled with the enticing aroma of lebkuchen (gingerbread) and roasted almonds.

We’ll sail aboard the Amadeus Star, a custom-designed, boutique ship that’s festively decorated especially for the cruise. Discover elegant restaurants, upscale lounges, and 82 cabins and suites designed with the luxury traveler in mind.
