40% Off Holiday River Cruises

Heartwarming Holiday Memories up to 40% Off!

AMA Waterways Holiday River Cruises in Europe - up to 40% off!

Take a European river cruise during the holidays this year and enjoy a unique holiday experience that you'll remember for the rest of your life. One of the most popular reasons to visit Europe during the winter are the Christmas Markets, which first began springing up during the Late Middle Ages. Today, visitors can wander aisles of festively decorated stalls that feature carved nutcrackers, old-fashioned toys and dolls, delightful handicrafts and other unique gifts. You can sample local holiday treats like decadent pastries, piping hot mulled wine, gingerbread and sausages.

FAMOUS EUROPEAN CHRISTMAS MARKETS

Nuremberg. This market has 180 wooden stalls selling baked goods, roasted bratwurst, handcrafted toys and unique gifts such as Nuremberg Plum People - folksy figurines made from dried prunes.

Vienna. The Austrian capital's glimmering City Hall makes for an unforgettable backdrop to its 700-year old markets. Tempting aromas and the cheerful sounds of international choirs fill the air.

Strasbourg. Here you will find the largest and most famous Christmas market in France. Founded in 1570 and located near a magnificent cathedral, it is popular among the locals and visitors alike.

Budapest. With more than 100 stalls, this market strictly enforces a handcrafted only policy. It's the perfect place to find a unique gift for the person who has everything.

Onboard our ship, we deck the halls with bright lights, magnificent garlands and a big, beautiful Christmas tree during the holidays. But the real spirit of the season is brought to life through the fantastic events our crew has in store for you on board.

There's a tree-trimming party, where you'll get to hang up your very own special ornament. Classic holiday hits are played live in the Main Lounge every evening so that you and your fellow passengers can mix and mingle to the jingling beat. We also serve a lavish, traditional holiday – and let's not forget the Captain's Christmas party, where you'll be delighted by unforgettable surprises prepared by the crew.
