Delight in the magical merriment of Germany’s holiday markets on a seven-night cruise that celebrates enduring festive traditions. 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, savor ample onboard meals and 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, explore beautiful Koblenz, and enjoy insightful lectures mixed with Yuletide traditions.
