Christmas on the Danube 2021

As of mid June, 2021, this trip is sold out.

We’re excited to present our trip for December 2021 – a river cruise on the Danube which will take us to some of the Christmas markets in Austria and Germany.

We will be traveling with Collette Tours.

We will depart from Philadelphia International Airport on December 9, returning on December 17. There is an option to stay an additional 3 days in Prague. The most economical cabin for double occupancy costs $3,348, which includes airfare, cruise, taxes, and hotel transfer, but becomes higher if you wish to upgrade your cabin.

We will be staying the last night at the Maritim (a 4-star hotel) before departing for Philadelphia. You can can find full details of our luxury cruise ship, the MS Amadeus Brilliant, which was fully refitted in 2020 here.

Because there is limited space on each cabin category, availability on all cabins and singles is on a first come, first served basis.

The lowest price for a single cabin is $4,348. You also have the option of upgrading to a higher cabin.

We’re looking forward to this trip, plus it will be great that we’ll have a floating hotel, which will provide delicious meals onboard, along with complimentary wine with each evening meal.

For further information and to confirm your interest in this trip and the two excursions, please contact Debbe Philips (

To reserve your spot, please send a deposit of $800 and the insurance $449 to Collette Tours, with the guarantee that all will be returned to you after August 1 if it’s unsafe to travel.

This will confirm your reservation, since we’re sure that this trip will be sold out, since other groups have committed to this trip as well.

Looking forward to you joining us!
