Scenic Extends Christmas Market Cruise Offerings

Europe’s Christmas Markets have become increasingly popular and Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours is setting sail with a 15-day sailing that celebrates the Christmas and New Years holidays in Europe while enjoying the festive markets.

It is also offering eight- to 18-day Christmas Market cruises on the Danube and the Rhine earlier in the season with ample time in ports to visit and shop the stalls that sell unique gift items such as handcrafted wooden nutcrackers and toys, one-of-a-kind glass Christmas ornaments, local knick-knacks and much more. Guests booking any of these sailings early and paying in full within 72 hours can save up to $1,000 per couple and receive free or reduced airfare.

The 15-day Christmas & New Year sails from Amsterdam to Budapest (Dec. 19) along three of Europe’s most popular rivers – the Rhine, Danube and Main-Danube Canal – where the bulk of the oldest and most traditional Christmas Markets are set.

Fares start at CAD $8,645 per person, double.
