Everything You Need to Know About Christmas Market Cruisesby Donna Heiderstadt | November 29, 2016
1. Market cruise itineraries are only on certain rivers.
The three main rivers where Christmas market itineraries are offered are the Rhine, Main, and Danube. On each of these rivers, you'll have a variety of choices: Major river lines such as Viking, Avalon, Uniworld, AmaWaterways, CroisiEurope, and Tauck all offer Christmas market cruises.
One caveat: If you want to make the cruise a family trip, Uniworld typically has one market cruise per season that welcomes children, while AmaWaterways offers family-friendly cruises on both the Rhine and the Danube through their partnership with Adventures by Disney.
