New Yuletide market river cruise launched for Christmas 2019 Record number of Christmas cruises for 2019

June 24, 2019 River Cruising No Comments Email Email

With less than six months to Christmas, premium European river cruise line, Riviera Travel, has released for sale a new Yuletide market sailing on the Danube later this year, with solo travellers also able to join in the magic without having to pay single supplements in selected cabins.

The new, six-day ‘Danube’s Imperial Cities & Yuletide Markets’ sailing this November will see Riviera Travel offer a record 25 Christmas market cruises on the Danube and Rhine rivers in 2019.

Released to meet growing demand, the new, extra sailing on November 30, 2019, will see the new, five-star river ship, William Wordsworth – launched in April this year – 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 their twinkling lights, colourful decorations, baked gingerbread, hot 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, alongside picturesque towns and cities at their best and brightest as they celebrate the festive season.

The five-night ‘Danube’s Imperial Cities & Yuletide Markets’ cruise on November 30, 2019, is available from $1279 per person, twin-share – and also for solo passengers, with a selected number of supplement-free cabins set aside for single travellers, subject to availability. Fares include three guided tours, onboard Wi-Fi and complimentary coffee, tea and water in cabins each day.

Boasting 13 luxury ships plying Europe’s major rivers, UK-based Riviera Travel offers inclusive, five-star cruises at fares up to 50 per cent lower than river companies more established in Australia.
