Christmas shop in European markets
RIVER cruise line Riviera Travel has released a Yuletide market sailing on the Danube with solo travellers able to join in without having to pay single supplements in some cabins.
Riviera Travel will offer a record 25 Christmas market cruises on the Danube and Rhine rivers as a result of new, six-day Danube’s Imperial Cities and Yuletide Markets sailing in November.
The new five-star river ship, William Wordsworth will cruise for five nights from Budapest to Vienna and back. Passengers will be able to immerse themselves in the traditional storybook charm of Christmas markets in Budapest, Bratislava and Vienna with twinkling lights, colourful decorations, baked gingerbread, mulled wine, handcrafted nutcrackers and alluring gifts to buy loved ones.
A highlight will be the market stalls lining the cobbled, pedestrian-only streets of the 18th century Baroque old town of Bratislava in Slovakia.
Perfect for Christmas lovers, the cruise will showcase some of Europe’s finest river scenery and picturesque towns and cities at their best and brightest as they celebrate the festive season.
The five-night Danube’s Imperial Cities and Yuletide Markets cruise on November 30 is available from $1279 per person, twin-share – and also for solo passengers, with a number of supplement-free cabins set aside for single travellers. Fares include three guided tours, onboard Wi-Fi and coffee and tea.
Enjoy the charm of Christmas markets in Europe.
