Celebrate centuries-old traditions on a Rhine River cruise taking you to holiday markets in France, Germany and Switzerland. Holiday delights — Old World decorations, toys, jewelry and more — fill these festive fairs. The scent of cinnamon and nutmeg and the sounds of carolers and bells enchant your senses. New adventures await daily. In Heidelberg, visit the castle and attend a musical performance. Admire Cologne’s spectacular cathedral, and personalize your cruise with a selection of included excursions in Basel, Breisach, Rüdesheim and Strasbourg. Ample free time allows you to explore the markets at your leisure. Aboard the exclusively chartered first-class MS Amadeus Silver III, you’ll never miss a sight, including the scenic Rhine Gorge, on this seven-night journey. All meals are included. Wine, beer and soft drinks are complimentary with lunches and all dinners aboard the ship. There is no supplement for solo travelers.
