Along the way, you’ll see Europe’s largest pipe organ, savor the world-renowned wines of Austria’s Wachau Valley, indulge in sinfully rich sacher torte, and tour the 900-year-old Benedictine abbey that inspired the novel The Name of the Rose.  There will also be a festive onboard New Year’s Eve celebration, with music, dancing and a champagne toast at midnight.
