Christmas Market River Cruises & Festive Holidays

 

A festive holiday is a great way to celebrate the winter season.  Walking around the beautifully decorated markets and trying all the delicious treats on offer is perfect for those wanting something different to your average holiday.

 

We currently offer six festive cruises on the Rhine and Danube: ranging from Christmas Markets at the start of the month, to Christmas Day and New Year river cruises which include a special dinner celebration to mark the occasion. Each give the chance to see exciting cities and towns along the Rhine or the Danube, while you explore and shop for that perfect yuletide souvenir. They’re the perfect mix of our classic river cruises we’re known for, with that added festive sparkle or New Year cheer to experience the most wonderful time of the year on a December holiday to remember. 2022 dates on sale now.
