Everything You Need to Know About Christmas Market Cruises

3. When they say “market cruise” they mean it.

You’ll visit a different market in every port, where you’ll typically find a selection of locally made ornaments, ceramics, textiles, and jewelry. There will also be foreign-made goods mixed in that will be cheaper but less authentic, so ask your guide which items come from the town. For example, Nuremberg is known for Rauschgoldengel, an angel made with folded foil, and Budapest specializes in ornaments made from Hungarian ceramic.
