Danube or Germany River cruise w/ 86-year old mom

Jump to last reply

My husband, sister-in-law and I are planning to take their 86-year-old mother to Germany and Austria. The only times we can go are November and March, neither of which are ideal, we realize. Is there a significant difference in the weather for those months? Considering that she is 86, we’d like to go sooner rather than later, but if March is definitely a better time to go, maybe we’ll wait and hope for the best.

We're thinking of a river boat cruise, where we could settle in to 1 accommodation and not have as much travel. While Mom is in remarkably good health, she's not up to a lot of walking so we thought this would work well. It looks like there are some that run in both November and March. Again, is one time better than the other?

Our hope is to keep this to about $3,000 per person, including airfare from Washington, DC and Boston.

Any thoughts or suggestions you have will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
