Cruise Highlights: This cruise takes in the best Christmas markets of Northern Europe in preparation for the festive season. It is the perfect combination of sightseeing and shopping, plus our range of optional tours will help you tailor this cruise holiday to suit your interests.

The first stop is Zeebrugge, perfectly placed for visiting the medieval and picturesque Bruges. You can explore its many market squares, canals and almshouses and, of course, its famous Christmas market. Also close by are Ostende, Ghent and Passchendaele.

Your cruise ship then moves on to Denmark and the beautiful city of Copenhagen. With a thriving café culture, Copenhagen is a fascinating city to explore. Besides the world famous Little Mermaid, you can also cruise the canals, enjoy the Trivoli Christmas market and visit probably the best brewery in the world!

Next is Hamburg and the opportunity to shop for more Christmas gifts at its festive Lűbeck market before heading off for more shopping in Bremen, home to one of the best Christmas markets in northern Germany.

All good things have to come to an end, including this Christmas Markets of Northern Europe cruise. All that remains is to set sail for home.
