Christmas Markets River Cruise

Dec. 1 - 5, 2025

Join us as we visit the European Christmas Markets and delight in holiday cheer on a River Cruise aboard the Avalon Imagery II in 2025! This Christmas cruise begins in Switzerland and sails to France and Germany, passing quaint villages festively lit and decorated — a unique and unforgettable way to celebrate the season! One of several stops along the journey is Strasbourg, France, home to one of the oldest and finest Christmas markets in Europe dating back to the 16th century. Take in the aromas of Glühwein (hot mulled wine), spice cakes, bratwursts, and other regional delicacies. There’s plenty of time to find just the right Christmas present among the vast array of crafts, decorations, and gifts! Plans also include an overnight stay both before and after the cruise so we can enjoy the nighttime Christmas Market experience.

Make plans early because this cruise in 2024 is already booked!
