Truly immerse yourself in the spirit of the holidays by exploring Europe’s traditional Christmas markets. Navigating the width of Germany, the spiritual home of Christmas markets; the Emerald Waterways Christmas Markets of Europe cruise provides plenty of opportunity to stock up on presents for loved ones back home and sample traditional fare. Hand-crafted gifts and delightful dishes following recipes passed down from generation to generation can be found in the plentiful wooden stalls erected at this time of year. Warm up with a mug of mulled wine as beautiful crisp snowfall descends from overhead. In between port visits, the Rhine takes on a wonderful new personality in the winter months, with snow-capped hill ranges emerging around the valleys through which we’ll navigate.

The full list of inclusions

Our Danube river cruise on-board the Emerald Dawn from Budapest to Nuremberg, with a three-day extension in Prague, was truly fabulous. Emerald Waterways did a fantastic job in every aspect of the cruise from the moment we stepped onto the ship.
Mr and Mrs Porter 0
My husband is disabled so travelling can be difficult, but Emerald Waterways were excellent from the minute we booked. Emerald provided assistance in the airports, the hotel in Bucharest and at embarkation, making the whole trip more enjoyable. The ship was sparkling clean throughout and our cabin was large enough to cope with a folding mobility scooter. Additionally, the crew were always on hand to help us.
Mrs Cartwright 0
The cabin was immaculate and comfortable, with plenty of space to relax and unwind after a long day exploring the beautiful cities along the Danube.
Mr. Wilson 0
The exclusive concert in Vienna was an absolute highlight of our Emerald Waterways river cruise on the Danube; it summed up the whole trip. The Emerald Waterways team continually went above and beyond to create incredible experiences for us all.
