European cruises at Christmas time
There is no better way to enjoy the seasonal cheer than a tour of European Christmas traditions.
Tour Christmas markets on a river cruise
Christmas markets will start opening to the public around mid-November for some of them, and for most them around the 25th November, in time for Advent. Christmas market cruises from Strasbourg, where the oldest Christmas market in Europe was created some 446 years ago, Rouen and Avignon are ideal to explore beautiful French towns and their charming local twist. For those seeking a Central European feel, CroisiEurope offers Christmas market cruises from Vienna, the Austrian capital putting on a very special show, including magical lights, culinary delicacies and a unique festive atmosphere.
Spend Christmas on a cruise
Embarking on a cruise over Christmas time has never been so easy. Come on board and let the crew take care of every details to ensure families have the most magical and unforgettable Christmas ever. Whether sailing the Loire in France on board the MS Loire Princesse or cruising the Elbe river on board the MS Elbe Princesse, travellers will be enchanted by the special touches the leading European river cruise line has prepared: Christmas themed shore excursions, Midnight Mass, special present for all passengers and of course fine dining and champagne.

Themed river cruises in France and the rest of Europe
Eating good food while on a CroisiEurope cruise is not optional, it is part of the experience, whatever the river travellers are sailing. However, themed cruises now also include shore excursions solely dedicated to letting you discover renowned vineyards and sample local culinary traditions. The Alsace region in North Eastern France is a delight for those on the lookout for both old and new flavours. Gourmet cruises are jovial and festive, and will just be what cooking lovers will need to find new inspiration from great French chefs.
Active holidays for everyone whilst cruising Europe
With CroisiEurope’s active cruises, bike lovers and ramblers are in for a treat! The new active holiday programmes are ideal to offer just the right amount of sport, heritage, local food tasting and leisurely sailing European rivers. It has never been so easy to explore Europe by bike or along green and peaceful walking paths. No need to worry about equipment: CroisiEurope provides the bikes and lunch for each outing.
Exotic river cruises
Want to wake up somewhere truly exotic? Look no further than some of the world’s most scenic and unspoilt rivers like the Mekong in Vietnam or the Chobe River in Botswana.
Cruising the Mekong really gives travellers the potential to explore the ‘real’ Vietnam and Cambodia, slowly drifting down the river that forms the life blood of these two countries. From the floating markets of Cai Be to the ruined temples of Angkor Wat, this cruise has it all
You’ll enjoy the scenery as the river narrows and passes through villages and woodlands and see the Asia other travellers rarely get to see.
Cruise in exceptional style from the privacy of your suite, unwind on deck with a refreshing drink, or enjoy fine dining in superb on-board restaurants. Step out on to your private balcony and you could be greeted by dramatic unspoilt scenery in Chobe’s national Park, Botswana, spotting a few hippos or elephants, gentle rolling African countryside, or astounding wildlife.
