Featuring Buffalo Concertina All-Stars (NY), Ray Jay and the Carousels (PA) along with the Polka Dreams All-Star Band starring some of the best hand-picked musicians in the country. We'll have some great theme nights too.
Our ship will be the Carnival Pride®. The ship just went thru a major multi-million dollar refurbishment and had a lot of new features added making it one of the most updated ships in the Carnival fleet.
We'll be going out of Baltimore this time, to the fun & sun filled Bahamas - visiting the islands of Grand Turk, Freeport & Half Moon Cay®. Half Moon Cay® is an intriguing private island owned by Holland America Lines - another of the cruise lines owned by Carnival Corporation. This island also recently went thru a multi-million dollar renovation to add some fun things to do. I thought that going out of Baltimore would give some of you that don't want to fly to Florida or other areas, a chance to go since you can easily drive there from many of the north-eastern and mid-western states.
We also are planning a welcome dance in the Baltimore area that will be open to anyone. More details soon.
Of course, returning will be our DJ @Sea - Kenny Olowin. Click on the Polka Cruises & Trips Page to see more details. Also see our PRESS RELEASE below.

German Christmas Market River Cruise
Ladies (and Gents), grab your best shopping pal (or even your husband or wife if they are up for it), or get a whole group together, and LET’S GO SHOPPING!!!
But this shopping trip isn’t your ordinary trip to the mall. It’s much, much more special - because you’ll be traveling from city to city aboard the AMA Waterways AmaPrimaTM Riverboat on an amazing shopping tour along the Danube River in Germany, Austria & Hungary, finding treasures all along the way to give for Christmas or keep for yourselves. You’ll be stopping at all the best Christmas Markets to find just the right thing for that special someone in your life. You’ll start your amazing travels in either Nuremburg or Budapest with shopping and sightseeing stops in Hilpolstein, Regensburg, Passau, Salzburg, Linz, Melk, and Vienna.
One of the most famous Christmas Markets (or Cristkindel Markt) in Germany is in Nuremburg and began about 400 years ago. Others, Like the one in Munich date back to 1310. The markets usually start on the Friday before Advent Sunday and run til just before or just after Christmas. The markets are generally held in the Town Square and each has its own unique atmosphere. But common threads include, decorated stalls heaped with traditional Christmas decorations, toys and gifts and the aromas of mulled wine, grilled sausages, and Christmas gingerbread.
The Christkind (or Christ child) usually opens the Cristkindel Markt ceremony. St. Nikolaus, the German Santa Claus, often pays a visit throughout the open hours. Christmas carol singing and Christmas concerts usually coincide with the markets, which are generally open seven days a week and run well into the evenings.
In the Children’s area many decorative little stalls invite the children to join in handicraft activities such as Christmas baking, candle-pulling, glass workshop, wood burning, handicrafts stall, children’s post office and active playhouse.
In addition to the shopping, there is plenty of sightseeing in the towns as well as along the journey while enjoying the view from your balcony or common areas on this spectacular riverboat. Special features of your cruise will include a cocktail reception, gourmet dining, complementary Wi-Fi access, lectures, onboard music performances, use of bicycles at your stops, cooking demonstration, and so much more. Just make sure to have lots of space in your luggage to take all those treasures home.
