Telegraph names the best Christmas market cruise

Christmas Market Extravaganza

The Telegraph has just released its list of the best river cruises for seeing this year’s European Christmas markets.

Acknowledging that browsing the various different Christmas markets around Europe has now become one of the best things about the festive season with the availability of such travel options as European river cruise holidays, The Telegraph has produced a summary of their favourite cruises created on this basis.

‘Four of Europe’s most traditional Christmas markets’

Four of Europes most traditional Christmas marketsIn the Telegraph’s select list, The River Cruise Line, unsurprisingly, takes a most envied spot. Celebrating the four-day Christmas Markets Extravaganza cruise, The Telegraph has praised the competitive pricing of The River Cruise Line cruise, as well as its fantastic itinerary.

Unlike many other cruise itineraries, The River Cruise Line visits not one, but four of Europe’s most traditional Christmas markets, starting off in Lille and finishing in Bruges so that guests can stock up on the most exquisite chocolates to help carry on the festivity at home. One particular highlight that caught the renowned newspaper’s eye was the stop-off in Maastricht, where guests can enjoy the famed Valkenburg Christmas market. Held in the atmospheric tunnels that zigzag beneath the town of Fluweelengrot, it really is an unforgettable experience.

The River Cruise Line offers guests all this at an unbelievable price, which was another tempting factor for the Telegraph. With this incredible four-market cruise costing from just £279, including coach transfers to your chosen port and a return ferry, it is no wonder guests return to us for their Christmas shopping year after year. From the more traditional setting of festive town centres to illuminated caves, these cruises promise to deliver a magical start to any Christmas.

To see why the Telegraph was so impressed by The River Cruise Line’s festive Christmas offering, take a look at our Christmas market cruise itinerary.
