AmaWaterways' Christmas Market Cruises

The late autumn/winter holiday season in Europe is truly a memorable experience guaranteed to enchant people of all ages. Starting in late November, thousands of outdoor markets spring up in city and village squares all across the continent as they have for centuries, their stalls brimming with ornate decorations, handmade toys and crafts, and delicious cookies, roasted chestnuts and gingerbread. Europe's grandest cities transform into a sensory delight at Christmas, with holiday decorations adorning every shop window and the streets aglow with twinkling white lights. This is truly the yuletide season at its best! In 2013, AmaWaterways has five very special holiday cruise and land itineraries. The Thanksgiving Cruise kicks off the holiday season with a seven-night voyage from Nuremburg to Amsterdam that includes excursions to Bamberg and Cologne, a private wine tasting, and a Thanksgiving feast with all the trimmings. On the Christmas on the Rhine Cruise, guests can enjoy excursions to the Black Forest and charming medieval villages set against a backdrop of snow-covered Alpine vistas. AmaWaterways' Christmas Time Cruise celebrates all the magic of the holiday season with memorable journey along the Danube. Experience some of Europe's oldest and most enchanting Christmas Markets in places such as Regensburg, Vienna and Budapest. The Magnificent Christmas Cruise spends the New Year's holiday in Amsterdam, a truly exhilarating place to greet 2014. Traveling with AmaWaterways in Europe during the holiday season is a unique, unexpected, and truly unforgettable experience. There may be no better time for a river cruise.
