Christmas Markets

Nothing will get you in the holiday spirit like a Christmas river cruise. On a Christmas markets cruise you'll travel along Europe's scenic rivers and visit bustling holiday markets in cities such as Prague, Nuremberg, Vienna, Strasbourg and Budapest. From hand-blown glass ornaments and handcrafted toys to nutcrackers and dollhouses of all shapes and sizes, you can browse through an assortment of unique trinkets and one-of-a-kind goods at row after row of elaborately decorated stalls. Sip on hot mulled wine and munch on gingerbread or stroll illuminated streets filled with festive Christmas decor and the merry songs of carolers.

Onboard the ship, you might enjoy special holiday meals and seasonal drinks. While the travel logistics are handled for you, you're free to celebrate the season. The price for each vacation below includes riverboat and hotel accommodations, where applicable, along with most meals, entertainment and guided sightseeing.
