Christmas River Cruises 2019/2020
Get in the Christmas spirit on a festive break. Experience them on a cruise along the Rhine or Danube, just one of the ways to discover these magnificent rivers this winter.
For something a little more festive, take a look at our Christmas cruises, where you’ll be sipping spiced wine and nibbling fresh-baked gingerbread as you stroll around some of Europe’s prettiest towns.
Each year, festive stalls form a carpet of colour in many of the squares and cobbled streets of towns and cities across Europe, each selling unusual gifts and trinkets that you just can’t resist.
Join us for a Christmas cruise or a voyage to Germany’s festive markets.
When it comes to Christmas, the towns and cities along the Rhine really go to town – expect twinkling lights, plenty of glühwein and festive markets in almost every square.
Join us for a cruise over Christmas itself. Casting off on 21 December, you’ll enjoy walking tours and wine tastings, onboard entertainment, and gala meals on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We’ll take care of all the cooking (and washing up), so you can sit back, relax and enjoy yourself.
Discover beautiful landscapes and picturesque towns as you meander through some of Europe’s most breathtaking waterways on a festive river cruise. From Christmas markets to New Year celebrations, make magical memories to last a lifetime from the comfort of a stylish and elegant ship. A truly relaxing way to enjoy the holiday season…
