fyi, this past Christmas there were a few extra people included in the total numbers...we had gifts prepared for Christmas eve and made up 40 just in case and all were required.It was a great way to spend Christmas and New year's Eve. If you are planning on going to midnight mass on Christmas eve dress very warm the cathedral is not heated and the doors are constanty being opened.

Ron and I will be on this cruise and are looking forward to it! We have cruised before but have never done a river cruise. We're from Buford, GA which is just NE of Atlanta. Any words of wisdom are welcomed! Carole

You'll love it ! Dress warm and expect damp cold weather, then if it's sunny you won't be disappointed or unprepared.pack light, you can do a wash on board. No one is going to notice you wore the same thing more than once. Then fill all the spaces in your suitcase with bubble wrap. use the bubbles to wrap all your goodies from shopping.
Always make sure you have a 50euro cent piece in your pocket to pay to use a toilet in town.
Pace yourself at the bountiful buffet meals or else you can blame the washer/ dryer on board for shrinking your clothes.

Thank you! I'm already in trouble following Thanksgiving today! Ugh! Bubble wrap sounds like a great idea. And the change....I wonder how much we should keep ( recommended) in pocket from the start as well as the best place to exchange. Airport? We wish to do as much as we can via credit card for ease.

This will be our second Grand Christmas, it certainly ticks off all the bucket lists, go to mass Christmas Eve at the Popes home church, the cathedral, at midnight they shut off all the lights, just candles, boys chior, nuns sing silent night without accompaniment, if that doesn't get you down to your toes, you must be dead. New years eve in the palace is a chance to dress up and bring in the new year in unbelievable style. It was like a movie set, of couse some passengers don't understand the New Year celebration concept and will wear shirt,tie and slacks. Too sad. This is a real treat. Something new has been added this year, the optional excursion for a new years day concert at the hoffberg, Just like the ones you see on TV new years day from vienna. Just dress daily in layers, the ship is nice and toasty, you can adjust your cabin to your personal temp, We are going to Neuremburg for two days prior to boarding, looking forward to meeting you. Ray and Sandy Orlando
