Set Sail To Oberammergau With Emerald In 2022

With the next performance of the Passion Play in Oberammergau scheduled for 2022, Emerald Cruises has planned special Passion Play river cruises departures ideal for Canadian travellers looking to make the most of their time in Europe.

The 10-day journeys combine admission to the show and overnight stays in Oberammergau and nearby Munich with an eight-day sailing along one of Europe’s most famed rivers, the Danube.

Departures are available in May, June, July and September 2022, giving potential guests lots of flexibility with their trip planning.

Depending on the departure date, guests will either begin or end their trip an eight-day sailing aboard one of Emerald Waterways’ modern 180-passenger river ships along the beautiful Danube River.

These itineraries visit four countries—Hungary, Slovakia, Austria and Germany—with port calls in capital cities Budapest, Bratislava and Vienna as well charming small towns and villages.

Daily tour options include the opportunity for guests to get active with a guided bike tour in Vienna or a hike to Bratislava castle as well as coach and more leisurely paced walking tours.

The Passion Play portion of the journey includes one day admission to the play, a one-night stay in both Munich and Oberammergau with tours of both cities, transfers to or from the airport and ship, and some meals.

Guests booking their Passion Play itinerary by May 16, 2021 will receive a savings of $2,500 per couple at a starting price at just CDN$4,820 per person and guests booking a suite on the Horizon Deck will receive a €150 on-board credit per person.
