We are planning to do a European Christmas market river cruise in December, 2014. We have narrowed it down to four possibilities, but it is so hard to tell from web sites or brochures what to look for. We would be going with another couple; both he and I are into photography but that is a secondary reason for this trip (very strong secondary though!). River cruises we are considering are:
Tauck: river cruise, Basel to Cologne (inc. Breisach/Colmar/Riquewihr, Strasbourg, Baden-Baden, Heidelberg, Rudesheim, Koblenz and Aachen). 8 day. Basel pre-cruise extension option.
Uniworld: Nuremberg to Frankfurt (inc. Nuremberg, Bamberg, Rothenburg/Wurzburg and Wertheim). 8 days. Prague pre-cruise extension option.
Avalon: Prague to Basel (inc. Nuremberg, Bamberg, Wurzburg, Miltenberg/Wertheim, Frankfurt, Heidelberg, Strasbourg, Breisach). 12 days. Prague pre-cruise and Basel post-cruise options.
AMA: Zurich to Amsterdam (inc. Lucerne, Breisach, Strasbourg, Speyer/Heidelberg, Rudesheim, Koblenz and Cologne). 12 days. Zurich pre-cruise.
Any experience with these itineraries or even these cities at Christmas? What do you consider to be THE key to-do markets?
