One of the main attractions of river cruising is that you get to visit multiple locations but you only have to unpack once. The river-cruise ship gently brings the scenery to you, allowing you to relax and take in plenty of scenic views while enjoying the company of your fellow travellers - and when cruising European rivers the scenery changes several times a day. River cruising is a year-round holiday and, while the summer is perhaps prime time, the festive season also has many attractions. Germany’s River Rhine is bordered by a range of riverside towns which decorate their streets and host Christmas Markets during the season.
Reader holiday specialist GN Holidays & Voyages has created a holiday which takes full advantage of Germany’s love of the festive season with a Rhine and Moselle river cruise that visits the historic riverside towns of Koblenz, Rüdesheim and Cochem, - all of which feature magical Christmas markets plus the popular town of Boppard. These attractions are just a stroll from the ship, so there’s no coach transfers or optional excursions to buy. This is a fun and friendly cruise where you can party to live music with Vicki Lambert’s tribute to Dusty Springfield and 60s Diva’s; versatile vocalist Chris Baker sings pop to musicals and more, PLUS GN Host Gareth Rockwell adds fun and laughter. All meals and selected drinks are included on board the 4-star MS Swiss Pearl which features an indoor pool and spacious cabins with hotel style beds.
You can choose to travel by rail from St Pancras International or Ebbsfleet or take return flights from a choice of UK airports including Stansted and Heathrow. All transfers to and from the ship are included.
The five-day holiday departs on 4th December, 2018 and costs from £749 per person.
