Uniworld Danube Holiday Markets 2015
I placed a hold until Monday for a Suite on Uniworld's new SS Maria Theresa for their Danube Holiday Markets for Dec 1 2015. This itinerary runs from Budapest to Passau with stops in Vienna, Bratislava, Krems, Linz/Steyer or optional trip to Salzburg. I have to confirm by Monday and place my deposit. I have sailed on Uniworld's sister ship SS Antoinette this past July and feel comfortable with Uniworld's food, service, and amenities.
My main questions are for people who have visited some of these stops for Christmas markets either with Uniworld or other lines. Did you feel the markets were worthwhile and did they have different feels between the different countries? How did you feel about the tours other then the markets themselves? I know that weather can change quickly and year to year but being this early in winter did you find the cold overwhelming(on line looks like an average of 40F and low of about 30 F? If you have been to the Linz stop with the option to Salzburg would you stay in Linz/Steyer or go to Salzburg for the day? Any other thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated.
