Cabin: Outside Stateroom with French Balcony
Rothenburg, Germany Christmas Market.

We always wanted to go to the German Christmas markets. They were even better than we expected. Hustling & bustling shoppers everywhere. Christmas songs being broadcast and even had a Santa at Rothenberg cranking out some music for us. Soooo worth the trip. You must drink the hot mulled wine in port...yum! And the ship's decor was very festive. Several Christmas trees and beautiful decorations everywhere. The employees were in the spirit. Super nice group of people. Made you feel welcome. Even had some schnapps on the bus one evening. Oh how fun.!! Food on board was delicious as usual. You should never go hungry...there's food available all day long. Always had special snacks when we came back from our excursions....cookies, stollen, hot drinks etc. If you've ever thought about making this trip....go for it !! You won't be disappointed. (Main River from Frankfurt to Nuremberg and then on over to Prague)
