Due to some cancellations, Peter Deilmann Cruises says it now has some additional spaces available on a close in, one-of-kind European river cruise for opera lovers. The Frederic Chopin departs May 17 and gives guests a chance to make six opera choices in Berlin, Dresden and Prague on an 11-day cruise tour program. Operas include Norma, Merry Wives of Windsor, Rigoletto, Pelléas et Mélisande, Tosca and Don Giovanni. The Elbe and Vltava rivers cruise tour starts with two nights at the Grand Hyatt Berlin and ends with a night at the Renaissance in Prague. Rates for the fully escorted 10-night opera lovers' cruise tour are either $2,841 or $3,210 (lower and upper decks) per person double. Hotel buffet breakfasts in Berlin and Prague, port charges, taxes and onboard gratuities are included in the special group rate. Opera performances and airfare are additional.
