Delight in the magical merriment of Germany’s holiday markets on a seven-night cruise that celebrates enduring festive traditions. During Advent, villages of wooden kiosks festooned with pine branches, red ribbons and cheerful lights spring up in town squares along the Rhine and Main Rivers. Linger in these fanciful Christkindlmarkts, as you savor the tantalizing aromas of mulled wine and gingerbread. Aboard your first-class ship, relax on deck as the stunning scenery unfolds around you, vistas of clifftop castles, charming villages and rolling hills.

Sail through the scenic Rhine Gorge, and gaze upward at the soaring spires of Cologne’s magnificent cathedral. Admire the quaint timbered architecture of medieval gems Miltenberg and Rothenburg on the Romantic Road. Walk through the stately halls of Würzburg’s palace, and explore beautiful Koblenz. While in Cologne, Bamberg and Nuremberg, select from a choice of intriguing excursions. Enjoy insightful lectures and ample onboard meals, including wine and beer with lunch and dinner. For solo travelers, the single supplement is waived.
