Christmas & New Year River Cruises from Global River Cruising.
Escape on a luxury river cruise to a festive wonderland, most European cities and towns transform from everyday life into traditional wintery villages from mid-November until just before Christmas Eve. Even though, snow can’t be guaranteed, you can however look forward to Christmas-card settings with traditional handmade decorations which are beautifully lit during the evening. And if you’re lucky, you might even come across a local choir singing traditional Christmas songs. It can’t get any better than that.
Visiting at this time of year on a river cruise you’ll get to see beautiful towns and villages fully decorated with beautiful Christmas lights and ornaments. Excursions are specially curated to offer a wide range of choices of activity in every destination, including bike tours, late riser tours and slow walking tours, as well as the visiting some of the best festive destinations Europe has to offer, all included in the price. And then of course we come to the special celebrations that happen on your luxury ship. Join fellow passengers to decorate the tree, sing carols, exchange presents and perhaps take in midnight mass in one of Europe’s iconic churches. All leading to the incredible gala dinners on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve.
Make a Christmas time and New Year river cruise part of your annual holiday calendar. You won’t regret it.See All Cruises

Christmas & New Year River Cruise Reviews
“We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere onboard, the attention to detail and the celebration. Put together with the beautiful landscape and the boundless energy of the staff who looked after us so incredibly I absolutely recommend the experience. So much so that we have booked to go again this year, on a different river but for two weeks and not one and more friends are coming with us.” Mrs E, West Midlands

What are our customers saying?
“I really like the personal touch you get from Simeon & Alex. They always have time for you & take an interest in your booking or enquiry. On my Danube cruise, when flooding caused major disruptions to the schedule, it was great to speak to them & get advice on my options. They negotiated with AMA for me to get a generous cruise credit in compensation.
Even though they specialise in river cruising, they helpfully researched Northern Lights trips for me. I’ve now booked a Great Rail Adventure with them. I could have booked direct, but I like the reassurance of knowing they’re on the end of the phone if I need them.”
- Ms Felton, Great Rail Journeys
