Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat. Please to put a penny in an old man’s cap.
Betty always thinks of that rhyme this time of year. The Christmas Holiday is just around the corner—of course, department stores have been decked out in tinsel and holiday slogans since before Halloween, but now all those decorations are finally relevant!
This season, we invite you to join us on an AmaWaterways cruise through the Christkindlesmarkts of Europe!
Beginning November 26, 2018, this 7-day cruise on AmaKristina starts in Amsterdam and ends in Basel. Along the way we will visit the magnificent cathedral in Cologne, Germany; the Oldest Christmas Market in Strasbourg, France; and Rudesheim with the renowned Rhine Bridge, just to name a few! River travel allows for our ship to dock close to these cities’ most popular markets and attractions. Beautifully decorated stalls offer handicrafts and gifts, festive baked treats, glühwein and delicious regional specialties. All the while, choirs and brass-bands provide festive musical accompaniment. Throughout Germany, Christmas markets celebrate seasonal customs and traditions in delightful historical settings. Particularly popular with visitors are Nuremberg’s Christkindlesmarkt and the Striezelmarkt in Dresden.
Pricing for this cruise includes a French balcony stateroom, as well as all meals (with wine and beer served at lunch and dinner). Guided tours are available at each location, in addition to bike tours, and hikes along the picturesque European countryside.
If a week in Europe just doesn’t feel long enough, I recommend two nights pre-cruise in Lucerne and two post-cruise in Zurich. Being able to explore these cities at your own pace will round out your experience!
Join us on this adventure and make your 2018 Holiday Season the one to remember!
