Sorry, this sailing has now reached full capacity.

Sail to Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium at the most wonderful time of the year aboard Black Watch and immerse yourself in the warm yuletide spirit of three enchanting cities – the perfect way to celebrate the arrival of the festive season.

Docking first in Hamburg, indulge yourself with delicious traditional treats such as gluhwein and lebkuchen at the city’s world-famous Christmas market, where you could also pick up hand-made gifts; and admire the stunning architecture of the city’s historic Rathaus. Alternatively you could explore the city on foot to see the sights, including the steeple of St. Nikolai Church and the Chilehaus; or even enjoy a relaxing boat ride on the beautiful Alster Lake.

Next Black Watch will cruise the Netherlands’ impressive Nordzeekanaal before docking overnight in Amsterdam, the Dutch capital. This charming city comes to life at Christmas, and you’ll have time to wander the along the picturesque canals lined with twinkling lights and decorations; and sample the exciting festive atmosphere at the busy markets. Make the most of your time here and visit world-famous attractions such as Anne Frankhuis and the Van Gogh Museum too before sailing on to Antwerp. Stopping overnight in Belgium’s second city, you could purchase last-minute gifts at the famous chocolate shops or in the sparkling diamond district; or even take a short trip to Brussels and visit one of Europe’s best Christmas markets at the beautiful Place Sainte-Catherine. 

Single supplement offers are available on selected grades on this sailing, please call for details.
