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.

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
