Christmas River Cruises

 

River cruises at Christmas offer a truly magical experience. Christmas is the perfect time to get away from it all and relax amidst stunning scenery, whether that be snowy scenes along Europe's famous waterways or winter sun in the Far East.

 

Christmas River Cruises in Europe

 

Popular European destinations to enjoy a Christmas river cruise include:

Danube – Sail through Germany, Austria and into Hungary
Rhine – Cruise from Cologne to Basel, calling at traditional German towns and cities
Seine – Spend a romantic Christmas in Paris


Many Christmas river cruises in Europe sail along more than one river, giving you the chance to enjoy the wonderfully festive atmosphere of many countries including France, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Hungary.

 

Exotic Christmas River Cruises

 

Popular worldwide river cruise destinations at Christmas include:

Mekong – Explore Vietnam and Cambodia on a two-week cruise
Nile – Lose yourself in the wonders of ancient Egypt


What to Expect on a Christmas River Cruise

 

Whether you want to immerse yourself in the festive culture of Europe with visits to Christmas markets and traditional Christmas fayre, or escape Christmas altogether with a faraway winter escape, you’ll find just the Christmas river cruise for you with River Voyages.

 

Choose from seven-night river cruises, to voyages lasting two weeks or more. If you’d like to get away for both Christmas and New Year, that’s possible too. And what better way to bring in the New Year than by viewing a midnight firework display from the top deck of your river boat.

 

When is the Best Time to Book a River Cruise for Christmas?

 

With Christmas being a popular time for families and friends to travel, Christmas river cruises tend to get booked up quickly. As dates and itineraries are limited, it's best for you to book your sailing of choice as soon as possible to secure your place on-board - particularly if you're sailing with a group!

 

Christmas river cruises always sell out fast, so ensure you book soon to secure your stateroom for your 2024 or 2025 Christmas river cruise. If you're looking to book a river cruise for the festive season, call our Cruise Concierge team for expert advice and a chance to secure your place on-board your cruise of choice.
