And for next year's Christmas trip with the kids:
Christmas Cruise: Here’s how to cruise over winter break without giving up the festive atmosphere of the holidays. Take a river cruise along the Danube from Prague to Vienna, and see towns en route that are transformed into glittering Christmas bazaars. On board, you can enjoy traditional European specialties such as Glühwein and Lebkuchen. For more information, visit http://www.avalonwaterways.com/Cruise-Vacations/Christmastime-Cruises.
