Festive Cruises

A festive cruise will certainly get you into the Christmas spirit. When December rolls around, that festive cheer can become quite infectious, and there is no better way to embrace this magical time of year than cruising to the world’s most sought-after Christmas Markets.

Not only is a Festive cruise the perfect opportunity to sample the delights available to travellers on board our smaller sized ships, but seeing these special festive markets for yourself is an experience you will not want to miss.

There are so many wonderful markets to enjoy. Travellers can discover the festive Christmas Market set outside of Hamburg’s most impressive town hall, or perhaps choose to explore all kinds of festive goods and a range of food and drink at the Christmas Market in Antwerp. There is also the Rotterdam Christmas Market, where a series of delightful stalls, full with seasonal gifts, await those that visit. There really is a grand choice of Christmas Markets to visit, with something available to suit every traveller.

A festive cruise really is the perfect way to spend the festive season and complementing your time on board is the chance to step ashore and explore the delightful aforementioned markets with our ever-popular shore excursions programme.

For those who are looking to enjoy something a little bit different this Christmas, but still stay true to your favourite festive traditions, why not consider the below Christmas Market cruises and make this December one you will never forget?
