We are recently back from our 12th visit to the markets. 6 have been on the river.
We had fabulous weather - crisp, cold and lots of snow!
Good, warm, waterproof boots are a must. Also a good coat, scarf, gloves, hat.
For the ship, we don't wear jeans to dinner and have found that most do not. I pack nice black leggings and slacks and sweaters. DH wears slacks and a sweater or dress shirt.
NYE in Vienna was our most memorable ever. The fireworks display was amazing and we were able to watch it all from the top deck of our boat, with our bottle of Moet and a blanket.
143 cruises since 1964, 16 on the river.
