European Christmas Market Cruise

Friday November 28, 2014 - Wednesday December 10, 2014

Christmas Markets in Europe are a feast for the senses. Glittering splendour, the sound of Christmas music on every square and the smell of mulled wine and cinnamon waffles wafting through the air, roasted chestnuts, gingerbread, almonds and the famous mulled wine. Small wooden stalls filled with colourful toys and Christmas decorations of all types. And once it gets dark, everything is festively lit and the markets are truly at their best. You can really feel the magic as Christmas draws near.

This Christmas season join us as we set sail along the Romantic Rhine river and take in the traditions and customs of the many towns along its banks. From the very first German Christmas Market that took place in Dresden in 1434, to the present day, the Christmas Market has been admired the world over. Our 13 day journey will take us to some of the nicest and best known, to some of the more intimate and less known markets. We spend eight days sailing on The Da Vinci. Let us spoil you as you experience the tastes, sounds and smells of a truly European Christmas on a 5 star vessel. Following the cruise, we coach to Stuttgart to spend 3 nights surrounded by one of the largest and nicest Christmas markets in Europe. While in Stuttgart we overnight at the impressive 5 star Hotel Am Schlossgarten.
