ORLANDO, Fla. (July 24, 2015) – Considering a river cruise for 2015? Christmas cruises top the list of favorites, say the cruise experts at Cruises-N-More. These unique cruises are a perfect choice for those wanting to experience the magic of the holidays abroad, with the opportunity to shop for exotic treasures.
Christmas market sailings on river cruise lines generally begin in mid-November and continue through the end of the year, and sailings are typically held on the Main, Rhine, Danube and Seine rivers.
The history of the Christmas markets of Europe dates back to the late middle ages in the German-speaking parts of Europe, and often coincides with the beginning of Advent. Europe’s twinkling, fairy-tale villages provide the perfect setting for the holiday markets, which still have a medieval appearance, and are generally held in the town square, Envision wandering cobbled streets, a cup of spicy glühwein(German mulled wine) in hand, browsing stands filled with lovely hand-made toys, crafts and ornaments. Enjoy the magic of the scene, all while breathing the enticing aromas of baking potatoes and chestnuts, grilled sausages and baked treats.
